Why is the noodle becoming a popular nickname? hahaa
Because he looked like he was trying to skip stones to receivers on Thursday versus throwing footballs?
Because my 3 year old could have thrown the ball with more velocity then he was on Thursday?
Because Joe Montana throwing the ball into the parking lot in the commercial would have been better than Brett Favre underthrowing the deep routes by 10 yards on Thursday?
Favre may have lacked accuracy, and he may have been rusty with his WR timing, but he was throwing LASERS.
First pass to Shank. LASER
Berrian's drop. LASER
The TD pass to Shank. LASER
Pass behind Greg Lewis. LASER
Pass in front of Harvin. LASER
Camarillo's catch. LASER
Camarillo's drop. LASER
I've seen like 5 different people call him "Noodle" it's the most dumb and most unwarranted nickname ever given to anyone
I take umbrage with that comment. Just because its thrown hard doesn't make it a good throw. Alot of guys running around can throw it hard. TJ throws harder than he does, by all accounts. Its all about accuracy.
Hell, he even got picked in his new bluejeans commerical for cripes sake.
Yes, it is all about accuracy. I admit that in the previous post. However, does the term "noodle" slight his accuracy? No. It slights his arm strength. Since Favre has shown tons of arm strength, V4L is right. "Noodle" is "the most dumb and most unwarranted nickname ever given to anyone."
If you want to give him a more accurate nickname, that slights his accuracy, or age, or rust, by all means go for it.
