Saints Defeat Vikings in NFL Season Opener

The New Orleans Saints defeated the Minnesota Vikings 14-9 in an NFL 2010 season opener that wasn’t short on excitement.

Brett Favre was there and threw an interception and a touchdown and looked all pouty when his team lost and probably went home to throw on some Wranglers.

Drew Brees was there and was efficient and studly, throwing a touchdown that would prove to be more than enough for the win.

But, of course, back to Favre. He looked, well, old and confused and ready for a walker at times. It probably didn’t help that he didn’t come to Vikings training camp because he was too busy deciding how big he needed his ego to be all summer.

The 40-year-old Favre, who decided to return for a 20th season after an ankle operation, looked out of sync or inaccurate at times. The fact that Minnesota was without star receiver Sidney Rice(notes) may have had something to do with that, although Favre said, “I just missed on some throws I should have made.” Via Yahoo! Sports

Whatever. I know, I know, it’s hard to move on. It’s hard to look at a relationship and say “Hey, it’s been a good run, but.. I have other stuff I want to do like sail the Mediterranean and visit Japan.”

We all have to break ties and maybe the opening to Favre’s final season is a wake up call.
