So get off my back, I had a Vike fan jump on my back for hating all the Favre-mania and ignoring the Vikes as a team.

As for Brees not getting attention, he doesn't have a compelling resume to get good TV ratings... it's a FACT. Maybe in 9 years, when he's 40, he will get just as much or more.

So a good resume gets you a lot of media attention? Tell that to Dan Marino. He went to ONE Super Bowl with Miami and lost. It's a matter of market-size. Mark Sanchez is getting a lot of media attention and he has NO resume'. Where does he play again? Dan Marino? See above. Brees didn't even start getting any kind of recognition by the media until this year! All he has done in four seasons in New Orleans is put up Marino-type numbers and made it to two NFC Championship games, and it takes four years for the media to notice? New Orleans is in a small market, and therefore, they get put on the back burner because of that. This team isn't glitzy, sexy, or media-starved like Brett Favre or Tom Brady. Let them stay under the radar, though. That is when this team is at its best. Let the media keep hyping Brett Favre so they can come up with excuses and not give credit where credit is due when he falls on his face again and fails to live up to what the media thought he was.

Re: For what it is worth....

I just think it's funny, that this Favre hype topic, is like a freaking virus. I don't there is one thread, that hasn't got at least one post about it. I'm going to start a thread about the 91 Saints, and see if somehow Favre gets thrown into it somehow. It's like: "Mrs. Hasselback is hot!" Response: "Well, she's not as hot as Brett Favre!" Seriously....

AMEN! Thank you, saintpaul! This thread had absolutely nothing to do with Brett Favre at all until a Viking fan made it that way. I'm really starting to hate the Vikings right up there with the Cowboys.
