Favre Returns to Lambeau – Vikings vs. Packers (Week 8, 2009) Classic Highlights

Green Bay has elected to receive so the Packers
will get the first chance at it offensively 3rd and 5. Caught that’s a first down for Donald Driver Fumbled by Rodgers in the backfield but he
dives right on top of it So that means here comes Brett Favre and the
Minnesota offense [Crowd collectively boos] [Burns] Smithers, are they booing me? [Smithers] No… they’re saying boo-urns. Boo-urns. [Burns] Are you saying boo or boo-urns? [Crowd boos] First down reception A three game divisional lead Ball is loose still loose And it looks like the Packers have it at the
20 they do Rodgers on 3rd and 5 Rolls… and down he goes Not allowing them to get to the endzone 37 yard field goal try is good A 37 yard field goal by Crosby So now the electrifying rookie out of the
University of Florida Percy Harvin brings it across the 30 Harvin already a pair of touchdown returns
this season Inside the 30… inside the 20… all the
way down to the 14 A lot of these guys that return kicks they
wanna get to the sideline, not Percy Harvin He immediately takes it north and south he
gets one on one on the kicker and then it’s just a foot race as to whether
or not he can get to the endzone but there’s not a lot of jitterbug in Percy Harvin
when he takes the ball and has it in his hands Taylor… great open field tackle made by
Nick Barnett And now a flag comes in. Some extracurricular activity after the tackle
was made with Anthony Herrera [Corrente] At the conclusion of all the action
in the dead ball period, personal foul, headbutt, defense #97 Could he get in? Yes. Touchdown Adrian Peterson 3rd down and long yard for the Packers and Rodgers out of the shotgun fakes it and
is looking down the field being chased by Edwards who got him all the
way back at the 17 3rd and 4, blitz coming. Favre gets it way catch made by Harvin Here at Lambeau, over a 16 year period Pump fake one way, and throws the other way
catch is made by Berrian Favre appeared to underthrow that ball and
it was still caught by Rice boy does he have some hands Seventh play of the drive. Favre guns it over the middle it’s caught
and in the endzone for Visanthe Shiancoe and his team leads 14-3. Rodgers again under huge pressure and Jared
Allen got him. That’s three sacks already for Minnesota Peterson into the open field and still on
his feet inside the 30 and finally caught by Al Harris close to the
15 yard line So now Longwell going for a 29 yard yard field
goal try [Corrente] Neutral zone infraction, defense,
stepped into the neutral zone causing the offensive player to false start. Five yard penalty, will remain 4th down I’m not sure if Peterson got it They elected to run the ball rather than play
action and Peterson is denied the first down But he’s not having one of ’em here in this
first half They fake it to Grant before Rodgers can even
look up he is sacked again Rice Good snap, good hold, and as Longwell did
for so many years 3rd and 17 three man rush and Favre’s gonna
pick that apart all day long Favre and the Vikings at midfield on first
down And Favre to throw, unbelievable protection Throws into traffic and the catch made by
Harvin He cuts it back the other way and into the
endzone touchdown Percy Harvin And as a result Favre has a little bit of
time. I mean there’s a little pressure up inside But you see he’s able to stay there and deliver
it Percy Harvin workin’ inside they’ve got some
defenders there He just goes up and makes a play I mean he makes the play on the ball, no one
else does and it’s keystone cops Rodgers will put it up and wide open receiver
is Greg Jennings And Rodgers sacked back at the 8 Jared Allen again You can’t take the sacks that he is taking 26 yard field goal try is good Rodgers under tremendous pressure Squib kick and out on across and a ball, football
is loose And it looks like the Packers have recovered
down at the bottom of that pile Rodgers to the endzone Touchdown Spencer Havner Great protection this time and across the middle the catch is made to
the 45 inside the 40 still on his feet Havner again touchdown and the game is on
in Green Bay And paying huge dividends now these last two
weeks Percy Harvin trying to change the momentum Trying to turn the corner across midfield and some of that momentum comes back to the
Vikings side Favre fires again to Harvin who makes a catch Favre on 3rd and goal Throws a touchdown to the tight end Jeff Dugan But he’s been big in the receiving game also Rodgers tiptoes out of trouble and he’s gonna
run it Still on his feet inside the 20, the 15 and steps out of bounds at the 12 yard line That’s a flag all the way and a touchdown
reception by Jennings the flag came down long before the ball was
ever in the endzone Green Bay 1 of 2 on 2 point conversions this
season Right through the fingertips Peterson Across midfield tackled from behind Bad snap. Rodgers able to get his hands on it and then throws complete over the middle to
midfield And Rodgers… is that a sack. They’re saying… Jared Allen is saying sack and the officials
agree From 50 and beyond this year No good And he’s throwing on first down A screen to Adrian Peterson who rushes down
the sideline cuts it back to the inside and tackled at the 14 Favre a short drop catch is made and close
to the endzone Touchdown Bernard Berrian Fourth touchdown pass of the game for #4 Rodgers on 4th down Let’s it fly incomplete and that outta do
it And now it’ll expire and the Vikings go to 7-1 the Packers slip to
4-3 Former Packers Ryan Longwell and Brett Favre
celebrating a 38-26 win

  1. We have to admire Sullivan’s catch and reaction after the ball popped out at the goal line. No lineman hands there.

  2. Harvey Percin was the biggest waste of talent I've ever seen in my life. Of course he played for my squad -.-

  3. Packers fan here, but I admit the Vikings were clearly the best team in the NFL during 2009… Somehow it made sense that Favre would break Vikings' fans hearts with a bone-headed interception (in the NFC title game) as he had Packer fans' hearts many times before. If the Vikings would have gotten by New Orleans they would have won the Super Bowl.

  4. Ah yes Favre always better than mr. fingerpointer. Made a crap ton of money after this season when I made bets that the Packers were going to win the Super Bowl, told everyone Favre was the biggest news in sports even more so than the NFL itself it was this reason I knew the Packers would "win". Best way to stop the Favre talk? Lets the Packers win it without him, and it worked. $$$$$$ for me

  5. It was upsetting to see Favre in purple and gold and not green, but damn the guy is a legend. If the Packers didn't make it to the big one, I was still rooting for Favre. The guy had a friggin cannon of an arm.

  6. How dare packers fans boo favre. He gave packers fans some of the best times ever. A legend and they are booing him. Wow

  7. I love Rodgers, But Favre will always be the fucking man. Absolutely nobody had a hotter fast ball in the history the the NFL. Fucking gun slinger.

  8. Packer's fans acting like babies… Farve left and Rogers took over. Farve still wanted to play the sport he loved in the same division he played his whole career. They boo him even though he gave damn near his whole life to that team. Then years later they cheered him when they retired his jersey. AP was given a homecoming when he came back to play in Minnesota even after he left.

  9. How many die hard Packer fans were secretly rooting for #4 in this game?.. C'mon.. you know you were lol.. Be honest.

  10. Jared Allen got a piece of Aaron Rodgers ass all night long lol.. Love rewatching this all day long haha.. Great memories!..

  11. Me and my college roommate watched this game live. Man I remember being so hype swearing we would take the bowl lol

  12. I thought about this for a while. Would the Vikes of beat the Colts for it all? I think so. I think the Vikes would of pounded on the Colts on both sides of the ball. It would have been a solid SB matchup.

  13. Favre and longwell just prove the Vikings can do better than the packers with their own players 10 years out of their prime

  14. Could you possibly upload Vikings games from the 70’s? Bud Grant, Fran Tarkenton, Chuck Foreman, Purple People Eaters.

  15. All that talk about what a great pass rusher Clay Matthews was but Bryant McKinnie was completely shutting him down.

  16. As a Romo fan I just love watching favre, both guys threw untimely pics at times but both made some amazing plays and just knew how to sling it

  17. well this was the only year in last 40 years when vikings had great QB. the inability of vikings franchise to draft/develop/trade for great quarterback is notorious. they again screwed up with cousins.

  18. Y'all Percy was a legit playmaker for the Vikings especially as a rookie. If he didn't have that nagging migraine before the NFC championship game then he definitely would've been Favre's go to target in those crucial moments at the end to beat those cheating Saints. But the Vikings are cursed in big games so maybe it was meant to be. Skol!

  19. People talk about the game that Favre won when his father died and that was some bad ass shit. But, this is my favorite Favre win ever. I f***ng loved this.

  20. As a Packers fan Brett favre did one of the most Savage moves in NFL history going to the f***ing Minnesota Vikings

  21. Brett Thank you for Being a Viking. You will be remembered as a Packer, but Viking fans will always love ya too!

  22. God I remember this game VIVIDLY. I had so many mixed emotions. I loved Green Bay, but I was a HUGE Favre fan. However the drama of retire or not did get old. However the entire thing was handled for crap. By both sides. When Favre went to Minnesota I was pissed at first but as I watched him fire the ball again I loved seeing him play. I didn't care for who. Well I'm lying a bit, it stung, but I still cheered when he won. I have a #4 Vikings jersey. That team should have been in the Super Bowl that year, plain and simple. The BS that happened was garbage. Horrendously bad calls, by both the refs AND the Vikings coach. Add to that the Aints were paying for injuries….it was a CHEAP ASS WIN for the Saints.

  23. Now I am a Packer fan, die hard Packer fan, BUT I also have respect for other fans. The Vikings were screwed that year. I have watched a few of your video's and have enjoyed them all. I love a good rivalry, it makes gameday so much more fun and intense. But not to the point of some people. I have gotten pissed off at comments after some sick comments at my family were made during a rival week. But I've never attacked a fan just for liking a rival team. That's foolish, selfish, and plain childish. Again thanks for your videos. I hope you don't mind if a Packer fan subscribes to you. I won't be an ass. While I love the Pack and the game, it's still just a game. Take care and good luck this season. Your team is stacked with talent, if Cousins can pull it together, YIKES. This will be a real black and blue division.

  24. I think I asked for this day off just to make sure I wouldn't be booked an afternoon shift. It was a great day watching GB lose to Favre & the Vikings. Brett was a baaaad man at 40. I love how the ref says "At the conclusion of all the action…" for the penalty. I need to look up this game if they have it on demand somewhere.

  25. Farve was really close to beating saints and getting back to the super bowl where they would have destroyed the Colts… Too bad.

  26. I remember watching this live. Shit fans for booing Farve. He gave them some of the best years for that franchise and they booed him. Ungrateful bitches.

  27. Why did they boo Farve? He did great things for the Packers. Peyton Manning got cheers and standing ovation from Indianapolis fans when he returned there in a Broncos uniform. Anyway, Farve looked good that year.

  28. That boo at the beginning was truly pathetic, forcing a legend that brought them a title in almost thirty years to rot away like spoiled meat (pun intended) to a dysfunctional franchise that is the jets. The fans are truly colder than the entire state of Wisconsin.
