As crazy as it sounds, I believe it to be true. Had we given Peterson the ball the entire game, we would have beat the Cardinals before half time. BUT our struggling passing game would not have got the SPARK needed, going forward, to being a well balanced team again. You know, like last year. This also allowed our team to rally around each other and in turn may have saved the season.
What can I say about Favre? Talk about intangibles! http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=Ag8zOmfjzKpxpJNHkHVpTfw5nYcB?slug=capress-fbn_fourth_quarter_favre-5075647 Not only can he magically bring back a team in dramatic fashion but he with his veteran knowledge of the game was able to ignite not only the offense but the defense. They fed off of him. You could see it. Not like the game where he was carted off the field. The defensive intensity wasn't there for that game. Was it because Favre was not on the sideline? Then after the game he gives nothing but props to his teammates. Watching that replay of overtime on ESPN gives me goosebumps everytime I see it. For Favre and BB to be on the same page like that was just awesome to watch.
This team showed nothing but heart! Very exciting game! The entire team stepped up. I think Favre should just go no huddle all game long. The guy is magic as a play caller.
Peterson is a FREAK! enough said.
