Brett Favre Mic'd Up: Damn Steven, what they got you in for?

"They payin' you overtime?"

That's a great line, dusted. "Pardon me while I hand the ball off for a touchdown now." should have been the next words out of his mouth. As much fun as it is to bag on Mr. Indecision, you have to like the guy a bit. I mean, it seems to me that it is just a game to him and he is a kid out there, ya' know, playing it.

Oh, he's a lot of fun in these "mic'd up" videos...still love the one where he's farting in the huddle, on the sidelines, pretty much everywhere :-)

That said, it's easy to be fun when you're playing the Lions. I would have liked to have heard his "mic'd up" when he was throwing two pick-sixes against the Steelers in their loss.

I think he yelled that at Stephen Peterman, an offensive guard also from Mississippi, that must have been filling in on the defensive line, hence the "overtime" comment.

Not all fun and games, though - Peterman is out for the season after a bad ankle injury in the game.

That was some good stuff. Sitting in section 227, I was talking to my brother early in the fourth quarter about how many yards Sidney Rice had. I made a guess of about 150. Boy was I off. I mentioned to him how Sidney needed to get a touchdown to put it all together. I'm glad Brett agreed with me.

There aren't a lot of guys in the game who can work a team like he does. A lot of talk and most of it is either right on the mark or meant to motivate. And you see how most of them listen and appreciate it.

It was a lot of fun watching from the stands (since I only go to one or two games a year) and this made it even more fun. Thanks for the link!

Yeah, that was a great link. I wasn't too fond of Farve before, but this kinda changed my mind.

Great stuff dusted. Even though he shredded my team, that was cool to see a glimpse of the inside. Imagine being so good at what you do that you have a camera and mic dedicated to just you the whole game ...

That's not what Jet's players will tell ya! :-)

His love for smacking asses is so very Pop Warner football.

I've been saying he should have retired 4, 3, 2, 1 year ago, but since he seems to have so much fun doing this, I guess I can cut him some slack.

I kept waiting for Will Ferrell to emerge from under his Brett Favre mask.

It's good to be that guy. Anybody know if he was mic'd up for either of the games against Green Bay?

This video's funny, but I'd like to see whether he's still a big ol' kid out there when things aren't going well. Detroit makes glad the heart of many opponents.

I find it ironic that ass-smackers can practice their love for each other so openly while gay players in the NFL are afraid of coming out.

That's because it's just a basic sports ass smack, not the pat & squeeze.

Like BI says, I don't think the ass-smacking is symptomatic. It would be the lingering.

There's so much good stuff in there. It's like some of the real good movies. You watch it the first time and see the story. The next time you watch it, you start noticing things you didn't see the first time. Every time you watch it, you see something new.

Bevell: Being an offensive coordinator is fricking hard. Favre: You oughta try playing quarterback sometime.

That's some good stuff.

Regardless of how critical I've been with regards to Favre's waffling when it comes to playing or retiring the post several years, I've always appreciated his enjoyment and enthusiasm for the game. His constant retirement talk, though, always brings doubts with me that he can keep that same love of being on the field. It seems obvious he has it this year, and will continue to have it as long as the Vikings continue to win. Should he have a poor game in this year's playoffs, though, I fully anticipate it will be back to the sullen, defeated, depressed Favre we've grown accustomed to each and every year, making everyone wait several months again for him to decide if he wants to continue playing.
