We really shouldn't be surprised that Brett Favre played last night, he is after all a zombie. Instead of BRAAAAIIINNNNS, the Brett Favre zombie feeds on slinging passes and "playing like a kid out there." His streak of 298 consecutive starts makes much more sense now. The Brett Favre zombie is able to play through the pain because, as a zombie, he is incapable of feeling pain. He has sustained numerous injuries over the course of his 19 years that would have held out any Quarterback who is actually alive. Incidentally, he is pretty incapable of feeling anything so when he leads the league in interceptions, although the fans might boo he is completely impervious to feeling the shame a mortal QB would experience.
Could this revelation give us some insight into how zombies make decisions? Brett Favre is probably the longest surviving zombie that we know about and one thing that we can all be sure of is that he is one of the best or at least most famous wafflers of all time. So I'd venture to hypothesize that maybe this is a shared trait among all zombies. Does every zombie wake up at some point and say they just don't feel like eating BRAAAAIIINNNNS any more, only to reconsider later when fresh BRAAAAIIINNNNS present themselves? We may never know. Hopefully Ed Werder has the courage to ask this blood thirsty creature outside the Vikings facility at some point this week.
After being body slammed to the frozen turf by Bears rookie, Corey Wooten, on Monday Night Football, it appeared that zombie Brett Favre would be finished. His zombie brain is no doubt scrambled beyond repair at this point and it's highly likely that he doesn't even realize that he is actually a zombie any more. Is this zombie done terrorizing offenses and his own offensive coordinators? I guess we'll have to wait until this Sunday morning to see if zombie Brett Favre wakes up, doesn't feel any feelings and the drive to sling some passes around while "playing like a kid out there" compels him onward.
