For all the records that Brett Favre holds, the one he's most associated with has to be his consecutive starts record of 289 games(although most interceptions is close, zing!).

That's why it's so surprising to hear him admit, via the Minnesota Star-Tribune, he might miss playing time if his elbow injury (tendinitis) worsens.

"You're not going to make every throw but I would have made some of those throws," said Favre, who was wearing a wrap on the elbow during his weekly news conference at Winter Park. "From that standpoint, I don't want to play just to play."

Interestingly, the topic of Favre starting games or not was at the center of today's Faceoff between Pete Prisco and Clark Judge ... only they weren't talking about sitting him for injury. Instead, they were discussing whether or not he should sit just because he stinks right now.

I concur with both -- now that the Vikes have acquired Randy Moss, benching Favre doesn't make a ton of logic, but if Favre is right and the "most important thing is rest" maybe the Vikings have to consider putting him on the bench to let his elbow get better.

That decision probably can't come this week, though, as they're in a must-win against a desperate Dallas team and it's hard to imagine Favre losing his streak at Lambeau in two weeks when they face the Packers -- really the only two options for rest, provided the Vikings believe No. 4 give them the best chance to win, are against Arizona in Week 9 (away) and Buffalo in Week 13 (home).

Even with those potential Adrian Peterson parties, though, it's a crazy notion that Favre might break a streak he clearly covets so much.

Update (4:40):: Favre was on the field with the team during Wednesday's practice, but did not participate outside of a few handoffs to the running backs. It's worth noting that it was a short practice, however.

Don't worry about me VikingBob. This man is comfortable with his manhood. But you, on the other hand, are evidently stung by my comments about Viking fans and their delusional Super Bowl dreams. And, like many of the Viking fans on this sight, you resort to childish, 3rd-grade putdowns. Kids will act like kids.

Viking fans are slowly beginning to realize they've been had by Favre. They won't admit it, they just insult. But their dream has turned into a nightmare. Folks like Vikingbob will be using their #4 jerseys as crying towels frequently.

Could this just be a way for the Vikings to see if Tavaris Jackson can do some damage with his legs by scrambling a little bit and either hitting Moss or running like Michael Vick. It would be embarrassing to sit Brett Favre because he isn't what you thought he was going to be and paying him $20 million.

Maybe this way the Vikings think they can save face and maybe win a few games and try to make the playoffs. Sure the suspension possibility is still out there and could it also be that the NFL would like to get even with the Vikings by suspending Favre for a few games after the Williams brothers got away with doping and haven't missed a single game because of it yet?

A lot of conspiracy theories for everyone to have a little fun with.

Adolf Goodell would rather go after Ocho or Terrell Owens for tweeting rather than do anything bad to little darling Brett Fart.

Do you really think Adolf Goodell would suspend Little Miss Drama Queen Brett Fart ????  I mean Brett Fart is to the NFL what Neuter Dame is to the BCS -- the little darling.  Bad Brett..slap on the wrist.  Bad Neuter Dame... your boosters were blowing your players... slap on the wrist.  On a side note, I really hate Neuter Dame. If the leprachaun was standing in front of me on fire and I had a bottle of water, I'd drink the damn thing.
