Brett Favre Will Not Play vs. Eagles

We already knew this, but now it’s official: Brett Favre is not going to play tonight against the Eagles.

Favre suffered a concussion in his heroic start last Monday night (which now feels like fifteen years ago).  Per NFL rules, Favre was subjected to several concussion tests during the week, and reportedly failed to pass even the preliminary ones, making his deactivation for tonight’s game a foregone conclusion.

Despite the 100% impossibility of Favre playing, some still held out hope.  Why?  Because there’s not much else for Viking fans to root for.

Joe Webb will makes his first NFL start, barring a last second change-of-heart by Leslie FrazierPatrick Ramsey figures to be the back-up QB.
