Like Reed, Favre can do what he wants

Brett Favre's interception at the end of regulation reminds me a lot of Ed Reed and certain liberties superstar players are given that borders on selfishness.

I wonder how many times during his career -- going back to the sandlot days -- that Favre has been told by his coaches not to throw across his body and back across a defense.

The Vikings called the right play. Favre could have thrown to halfback Chester Taylor on the near sideline, who would have picked up about 10 yards, or Favre could have tucked and run it for five or 10 yards.

Instead, he threw the pick, and it reminded me of how many times through the years that the Ravens coaching staff has told Reed not to lateral the ball after an interception and he does it anyway.

When you reach a certain status in the NFL, you can pretty much do whatever you want.
