08:03 AM ET 11.15 | Draped in drama or not, Brett Favre has played through quite a bit this season. [Favre] has dealt with tendinitis in his throwing (right) elbow, a stress fracture in his left ankle and another fracture in his left heel, an issue with his calf and a 10-stitch cut on his chin this season. Now, it appears the quarterback might add his throwing shoulder to the list. Favre didn't mention it during his postgame news conference Sunday following a 27-13 loss to the Bears at Soldier Field, but he told ESPN that he now has pain in his right shoulder that could be related to surgery he had to repair a partially torn biceps tendon following the 2008 season.

Enema's are revealing.

Just quit now, man...

We're awful sick of you keeping your injuries secret until you can use them as an excuse. Retire now.

Beat me to saying the same thing.

Not to mention that he considers his head coach to be a pain in the ****.

Time to end the Brett experiment. 3 more ints and a fumble. No, they're statistically not out of the hunt for the division title, but no one can think this team can win in the playoffs. So unless the goal is to just look as good as possible this year, they need to look at analyzing other QB talent. If they don't have any, then its their fault for not bringing them on board.

Hope you were able to get a little from Jen, Brett.

His heart...Jenn broke it.

Ha!

Count you sounded like Brett, then.

I speak from experience.

Anybody think he's sorry he came back this year?

This could be it for the old man. If he can't throw, and The Streak is over, maybe he'll just sit himself down. Of course, he'd rather go on IR and still get paid.

Face it. You can't do it anymore, Brett.

Give it another try, man. Colonoscopies have gotten a lot less unpleasant, just in the last few years. They're only slightly more unpleasant than having a tooth pulled, or losing to Cleveland.

Time to sit on the tractor and sext away!

I would agree with you. I think he doesn't really understand very well what's happening to him. He's not the media darling he was and even players and coaches are starting to turn on him and not simply kiss his behind anymore. His interceptions are exactly that, interceptions, and no longer the "by product of the excellent gunslinger that he is". Even Peter King has distanced himself. Brett probably actually is starting to regret returning, a little anyway.

Another loss, another injury, another excuse.

He forgot to list the two bad thumbs he injured from texting Jenn incessantly.

I'd rather have a tooth pulled via colonoscopy than lose to Cleveland.
