    At least Vikings paid them back with the Miracle in Minnesota...............Only to be stomped by my Eagles the following week in route to our 1st Superbowl win. Thanks Minnesota 😎

      Hate the Packers but seeing Favre in a Vikes uniform was just plain wrong.

            The refs were garbage in this game I’d like to see the same hits on Peyton Manning or Tom Brady and it not get called

                Yeah the Saints needed money for Hurricane Katrina but they shouldn't have let Favre get hit that much that was just uncalled for (Saints fan speaking).

                      I never realized that Vikings Farve actually went anywhere. Crazy how that win could have changed that.

                              You forgot to add the high low hit 1. broke his ankle 2. Was penalty the NFL would later come to apologize for not calling which would have erased that INT and given them 15 yards..with Favre still writhing in pain of course...Greg William's is also a disgraced DC and was suspended indefinitely for his role in bounty gate which you alluded to but didn't really give the context of the actual game

                                and then just like that after his retirement the NFL change the rules to further protect the quarter back.

                                        Saints were so dirty that year. Their head coach was banned for a year after that season

                                        Though this video was well made the facts are not quite accurate. There were also questionable hits after the whistle. The "Bounty" was so severe after discovered that legal steps were being considered. Instead careersrs like Vilma were ended along with a season suspend of a head coach. This is ultimately the most underrated nfl game in history for fowl play. For a quarterback abused by the media from day one of not attending training camp Favres accomplishment has only been matched by Tom Brady's recent success's but than again Tom is backed with one of the greatest defensive mind genious's of all time.

                                                  didn't they also violently retire Kurt Warner? Saints title should be vacated, period.

                                                      Two long-lasting outcomes:

                                                      1.) The NFL instituted new rules for Overtime (largely on account of this game).
                                                      2.) The NFL fined & suspended the Saints for Bounty-gate (largely on account of this game - plus other playoff games).

I can't blame him for his last season or this game. It's inexcusable to fumble the ball six times and it's all so inexcusable you have the wrong personel walk out to the field. Crowd noise in ear plugs would have nothing to do with that. They were in a timeout. The whole world stops in a timeout.
                                                                        Favre was robbed by Williams and so were the people of Minnesota of a Super Bowl that they undoubtedly would have won.

                                                                        That said, it turned out that Favre's ankle was broken in that game and you failed to mention that. Chances are Favre would not have been able to play.

                                                                        Had that bounty not been placed on Favre and Warner the week before, their careers may not have been ultimately ended and altered.

                                                                        Horner never played another snap after getting abused by Williams bounty defense.

                                                                        Favre went into The following season with a still damaged ankle that he never quite got past.

Watching the punishment he took and how he handled it especially later finding out about "bountygate" intentionally trying to injury him was both hard and awe inspiring, almost any other player today and not just a QB but any player even in their prime would more than likely not continue on after just 1 of the huge hits and he took several devastating hits that were clearly painful but even at his age he pushed thru and not only came back out but even returned and played at a high level. It was really special to see such determination a what it means to never giving up, this performance though transcended beyond just this game, that playoffs, season, this was like the culmination of his entire career almost as if this was the final 1,200th quarter of a single 12 yr long game. And even though it ended with him throwing the INT it didn't matter and even makes for a better ending to it all somehow, that even when you go so above and beyond any expectations sometimes it can still go wrong either by your own making or by something else out of your control. To me this game was a perfect example that demonstrated oftentimes its the journey and the destination that truly matters.
