    Default Favre's sliding tackle

    I just saw the repeat of Fox's TD run. BF was closing on Fox and it looked like he tried a sliding feet first tackle.It was so quick I couldn't tell how closeBF was to Fox during the slide.BF was going to get creamed if he stayed on his feet.Just bringing this up because of all the chatter about the tripping call.If BF had brought down Fox with a sliding foot tackle would that be legal?

    No it would have been tripping. I think Brett would have tried shoving Fox out of bounds until he saw Clark coming. He wanted no part of Clark.

    Watch it again. Favre knows he plays the Packers next and their was no way he was going to attempt a tackle and get hurt. He basically saw the block coming and hit the ground like a puss.

    Well, let me answer it like this...it would have been a tripping penalty...but if he'd have done it that would have saved the TD. All things considered...I think he'd have taken the penalty instead of the TD...a lot like Reed should have.
