Vikes, Frazier 'hoping' Favre can play on Sunday

Even Leslie Frazier's brilliant start with the Minnesota Vikings (2-0! A win against the Bills! And one against the Redskins!) couldn't possibly be derailed by Brett Favre's on- and off-field issues -- when Favre went down, the Vikings went up, shredding through Buffalo with Tavaris Jackson at the helm.

Favre's dealing with another injury (this time a separated shoulder) for the first time in his career, but just because he's hurt every body part he's got at this point doesn't mean you should expect him to sit. Because the Vikings don't.

"He probably won't practice tomorrow, but we'll get a chance to see how he looks on Thursday and just try to make a determination based on that, you know, how things will look for Sunday," Frazier said Tuesday in a radio interview. "But we're all hoping that he'll be healthy enough to play. He's still a great quarterback and if he's able to play it gives us a great chance to win against New York."

Now, Frazier has to say something like that -- unlike Brad Childress, he already seems to grasp that keeping a hold on the Vikings head coaching job is much easier if you please No. 4.

That being said, he and Minnesota won't go so far out of their way that they risk losing a game to please Favre; if he physically can't go, they won't force him on the field just to keep his consecutive games starting streak alive.

Or, at minimum, they'll put him out there against the Giants and let someone on the offensive line "miss" a block in the first quarter that leads to more of what you see above. Seriously: if Favre tries to go against the G-Men's pass rush, they're going to end up killing him.

"They won't force him on the field just to keep his consecutive games starting streak alive" - LOL, what a joke. No, "they" won't force Favre on the field - he'll force them to let him start even if he can't move, because that streak is more important to him than oxygen!

That made me giggle because its probably true lol. I hope they don't kill him but imagine if he takes a beating like the Giants gave to Jay Cutler? I dunno if he would get up from that.
