Why Brett Favre Chose Not To Run (Injury Pictures)
We all saw it and we all questioned it: Why the heck didn't Brett Favre run for a few yards then out of bounds to set up a potential game winning field goal in the NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints.
The direction Brett was heading was a sea of open green field and the time on the clock suggested he could have eeked out enough yards for Ryan Longwell to feel comfortable about the field goal attempt.
Well, after visiting this link, I have a better understanding of why Brett pulled a Seinfled and "chose not to run!". Question his motives, question his methods, but one can never put Brett Favre's toughness in question (regardless if these pictures are real or not).
According to Rick Cleveland from the Clarion Ledger, this is what Brett's ankle and hamstring looked like in the days following the game.
