Favre says he 'does not think he can play' Monday

The temporary issue with the Vikings-Giants game (aka "WHERE") is solved, as the teams will square off in Detroit Monday night at Ford Field (and tickets are free!). So what then, will happen with Brett Favre, who said he couldn't have played Sunday.

Well, it appears his consecutive games streak will end at 297, if the reports currently circulating hold true.

Favre texted Jonny Saraceno of USA Today on Sunday about his status.

"I doubt it, but [the Metrodome collapsing] does buy a little time," Favre texted. "This is unbelievable!"

He was referring to the Metrodome, of course, but for all we know he means his chance at playing Monday night against the Giants.

According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, Favre is also telling "friends and associates he does not think he can play" Monday.

In other words, right now, he's "doubtful" at best, and it seems as if Tavaris Jackson will get the starting nod for the Vikings on Monday night in Ford Field.

But, this is Brett Favre we're talking about folks, and there's no reason to firmly believe he's going to miss the opening snap of the game until you actually see the ball in Tavaris' hands on the first play from scrimmage.

Until then, there'll be plenty of speculation surrounding Favre's status, and there's always a chance he wakes up on Monday, feels great, gets dressed and leads the Vikings to a miraculous win (or embarrassing loss). There's also a chance he suits up and gets injured, although Leslie Frazier has indicated he won't play Favre early and pull him just to keep the streak rolling.

If Favre doesn't play, though, there's a very good chance we've seen him take his last snap in the NFL -- once "the streak" is broken, it doesn't seem like he's got a whole lot come back and play for in the final three weeks of the season.

Boozer, I have a 9 yr. old little cousin that has better grammar than you just displayed.  I would not continue to embarrass myself with posts as bad as this one.  Please come back when you can pass the 4th grade.

Minnesotans are sure familiar with collapes.<br /><br />You know, the Metrodome, the BiQueens over the last 49 years, the Twins when they get owned by the Yankees in the ALDS, Little Miss Drama Queen Brett Fart. <br /><br />Minneapolis should be renamed Minicollapolis.

I myself are a seahawk fan. And dont get me wrong there not doing to great these past couple years. But i have to agree, Favre wanted to stay another year to try and get a better last year. But he should of retired last year because hes ending with a horrible year. Rodgers is tearing shit up at home and on the road.
