EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Brett Favre has defied his age this
season for the Vikings.
At 40 years old, Favre will become the oldest quarterback to
start a conference championship game when Minnesota visits New
Orleans for a spot in the Super Bowl.
Favre has long had a league-wide reputation for playing football
with an infectious, boyish enthusiasm. The Vikings have fed off of
that style to make it to the NFC championship game.
Equally notable is Favre's ability to keep his body healthy and
get up from all those hard hits. Since taking over as the starter
for the Green Bay Packers early in the 1992 season, Favre has never
missed a game.
