Training camp + four preseason games + sixteen regular season games + playoffs = roughly 6 months in a NFL season. Brett Favre joined the Minnesota Vikings at the end of camp this year, yet had the best statistical season of his illustrious career. Favre threw for 4,746 yards, 38 TD’s and only 9 interceptions in 2010. He also led led the Vikings to a 12-4 season and carried them all the way to the NFC Championship game.
And his last throw of the year was an interception that cost the Vikings a chance to go to the Super Bowl.
Favre didn’t lose the game, but, he didn’t win it either. Favre’s costly 4th quarter interception eliminated Minnesota’s chance for a Longwell, game-winning field goal. Now the Saints will represent the NFC in Miami in Super Bowl XLIV.
