Brett Favre said he’ll be watching Sunday. And rooting.

“I want to see the Vikes win,” the Hall of Famer said. “It’s their time.”

Then, to prove you can indeed teach an old gunslinger new tricks, Favre passed along two thumbs-up emojis to Minnesota Vikings fans getting set to watch their squad play the New Orleans Saints in a NFC divisional playoff game.

Jan. 24, 2010, was the last time the Vikings and Saints met in the playoffs. You might recall that NFC title game and how the 31-28 overtime loss sucker-punched one of the most magical seasons in franchise history.

It was the 24th and final postseason game of Favre’s 20-year career.

Overall it was the 309th of his 322 NFL starts.

That’s quite a difference from Sunday, when Case Keenum of Minnesota will be making his postseason debut in his 40th overall start.

Never fear, says the fearless Favre.

“Case has done an outstanding job leading his team,” Favre said. “His play certainly speaks for itself. It sounds to me like he carries lots of mental and physical toughness on and off the field, and people notice.”
