Giants walk all over Favre-less Vikings…

Per Crave:

It lasted for 297 games, over an amazing 19 seasons but like all good things, it couldn’t last forever and didn’t as Tavaris Jackson starting for the Minnesota Vikings Monday night marked the end of Brett Favre’s miraculous streak. A streak that was beyond the wildest dreams of Favre growing up.

“It’s been a great run, I will not hang my head one bit because it ended today,” Favre said. “I think about as a kid goals and dreams, I have far exceeded all of those. I never dreamed of playing 300-plus straight games [including playoffs]. I dreamed of playing in the NFL.”

Favre has fought threw injuries too numerous to count; from the physical, like broken bones to the emotional, like the loss of his father, he’s fought though them and never missed a beat. Heck. There were many times, perhaps, that he should have sat, but he persevered through it all. That is, until an injury to his throwing shoulder, at age 41, became to much to bear for the aged legend.

“Seems like I been hurt a lot worse,” Favre said after the game. “I can’t believe something like this hasn’t happened before.

The main issue with this injury centers around his sprained SC joint, which Favre believes is causing numbness along his right arm all the way to his hand; thus preventing him from getting a good feel for the ball. According to Favre, as long as this numbness continues to persist, he won’t be starting for the Minnesota Vikings.

“I won’t play again if I can’t feel my hand,” Favre said. “I think it would be foolish to even consider playing if you don’t have total feeling in five fingers.”

The Vikings, meanwhile, were crushed by the Giants in their Monday night game 21-3, mainly due to an ineffective offense that was just smothered by the Giants athletic defense. The win keeps the Giants even with the Eagles heading into their game this coming weekend but they must overcome an unexpected short week to get ready for the game.

“We’re going to have to be resilient again this week because we’ve got a short week before a big game against the Eagles,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “They had a nice win yesterday, and we had to match them.”

The Giants play the Eagles at home Sunday at 1 pm in a game that will be pivotal to the NFC East.
