The Brett Favre streak is over
By Matt Mosley
It's official that Brett Favre (right shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the New York Giants. One of the most impressive starting streaks in professional sports has ended at 297.
I actually think the Vikings are much more dangerous with Tarvaris Jackson in the lineup, and that's who the Giants have spent the majority of their time preparing for. I know that defensive ends Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora have a lot of respect for Jackson and his ability to move around in the pocket.
There will be an emphasis on staying outside on the edge and bringing the pressure from the middle. And look for Perry Fewell to bring his cornerbacks and safeties on delayed blitzes. I'll be observing the game and offering commentary Tuesday morning.
