    Re: Favre makes most of his autonomy in Vikings' offense

    They did a nice breakdown on this on NFLN today.

    Showed the RB's he has worked with and talked about how he always had to carry a team.
    First team that he doesn't which in turn makes him take far less risks with the ball.
    Increased completion rate and fewer INT's.

    Makes sense to me.

    Re: Favre makes most of his autonomy in Vikings' offense

    Here's what I'm wondering:

    When we were on the goaline against the Steelers today, and it's first and inches, was it Favre's or Bevell's decision to pass on second and third down?

    Passing on second I'm fine with, because you can maybe catch the D off guard. But passing on third and inches when you have Adrian Peterson, Steve Hutchinson, and Bryant McKinnie is madness.

    I don't know if it's madness. I mean how many times did AP get stopped for a loss today? Or basically no gain? A lot is the answer. I guess it's a double edged sword could go either way.
    I bet you could use a cool one huh Clark...Now you're talkin Eddie...

    aside from the first quarter and at the goal line, not very often.

    Nope, not even in the slightest.
