---I can't understand all the fuss about Brett Favre's streak ending. Wasn't it going to end in three weeks when he retires? Who cares if he plays Monday night against the Giants? The Vikings are out of the playoffs. It's better if they play Tarvaris Jackson anyway. Favre's streak would have ended in three weeks. So why the big hype about it? Oh, he's Favre. I think the media made way too much of it. The way he's played, he ended a streak a long time ago. It's the Good Quarterback Streak. He hasn't been part of that streak this season. 

---The tripping incident by Jets assistant Sal Alosi should draw a one-game suspension and fine from the league. He should not be fired. That would be going too far. But he does need to be penalized. That's an integrity-of-the-game issue. It also would send a bad message to all the players getting fined if he is not hit with some kind of penalty. I say he's suspended a week without pay. But let's get off the morality horse and these calls for the man's job. It wasn't that bad.

---Tom Brady is a lock to be the MVP. The guy is playing at an unreal level. He has 19 touchdown passes and no interceptions in his last eight games. He carved up the Bears for 369 yards and two touchdowns in the snow. The thing people miss about playing in the snow is that it is an advantage for the offense. The pass rushers can't get traction and the receivers know where they are going, making it tough on slipping defensive backs. Brady excels in the snow. You can bet the Patriots will hope it snows come playoff time.

---Darren McFadden needs to touch the ball more for the Raiders. He had 16 carries Sunday against the Jaguars. That's not enough. He had 209 yards of total offense and three touchdowns, all of them longer than 35 yards. He has that speed that makes defenses quiver. Why doesn't he get it more?

---If Patriots rookie corner Devin McCourty is out for any period of time with a rib injury, it will be a big hit for the Patriots. He's been a big reason why the defense has made big strides.

----Tashard Choice asking Mike Vick for an autograph after the game on the field was weird. But I've seen worse. I've seen some media members do it to other players. Come on, guys. Does a signature really mean that much?
 
---The dislocated elbow suffered by Eagles middle linebacker Stewart Bradley is a big hit to that defense. You could see the difference in the defense after he left against Dallas. He will be out for weeks, maybe the rest of the season.

---Losing Gerald McCoy and Quincy Black for the season are big hits to the Tampa Bay defense. McCoy, the rookie first-round pick, had really picked up his play the past month at defensive tackle. Black is a speedy run-and-chase linebacker. Those two now join corner Aqib Talib as three key components gone from the defense.

Prisco you have outdone yourself again with such witty writing. Anyone watching the Pats game on Sunday would have heard Jim Nance and Phil Simms say exactly what you just put in print. Nance said something like," I don't know were the Patriots would be without Devin McCourtey this year on D". You just stole Nance's quote! You won't give Farve a break this year no matter what and at this point I agree with what your saying. However your saying the obvious. You ,Me, and the rest of the world all think the same about Farve. So Pete bring us some good stuff for now on!

Prisco is the biggest inbred retard to ever write for any form of communication. A loser of the highest magnitude.

Prisco, you wouldn't have a living if it were not for guys like Brett Favre.  Prisco is also unqualified to be a sports writer as he has no understanding of the game of football.  The big deal is play one NFL game on the highes of levels and get crushed by a 300 lb lineman head on, or a 250 lb linebacker with a headful of steam or how about a blind side hit by a scrawny well built muscled up 195 lb defensive back that can run a 4.4 40 and also is coming from your blind side.  Do that Prisco than write an article about how its not a big deal to play in 297 straight regular season games plus 24 straight post season games at quarterback.  Prisco you are about as low as anyone can get disrespected one of the greatest accomplishments I have ever seen in my lifetime on the football field.  If you ever played a sigle game of tackle football on any level you would understand how physical it can get.

PLEASE do everyone a favor CBS-FIRE PRISCO, his predictions on games are horrible, his columns are just plain and dumb, and most of all has to be one of the biggest JACK-ASSES in sports writers.

Way to stay the classy douche you always are, Pete.  By the way, the Vikings aren't out of the playoffs until they lose tonight.
