Favre expects to start Sunday

Those people hoping that Brett Favre's consecutive starting streak ends Sunday probably shouldn't hold their breath -- the Vikings quarterback said on Friday that he expects to start.

At least that's what he told ESPN's Ed Werder, even though he'll be listed as "questionable" through the start of the game.

Of course, "expecting to start" and "expecting to start and play the entire game" are two different things entirely -- just because Favre takes the Vikings' first snap doesn't mean he has to take their last.

It's almost certain that if Minnesota gets up by a substantial margin ("blowout" territory) that Favre will get pulled to rest his elbow.

And if the game gets out of hand the other way, Brad Childress, who said that he'd seen the ball come out of Favre's hand "backwards" this week, probably won't hesitate to yank him in order to assure that the Vikes aren't locked into a 1-4 start before halftime.

Yeah, I never expected him to sit. Still think it's cheap to keep the record going at the expense of the team if they think he's a worse option.

Pretty sure everybody who's been a fan of the game for at least the last five years or so knew this was coming.  He'd start the game unless his right arm fell off before the coin flip.  Even then, he might try some left-handed passes.
