    I agree it was mostly the receivers fault last week...but Favre definitely has to take some blame for that INT.
    Sure Berrian tipped it up but Favre was forcing that one into tight coverage.
    Agreed that the one Berrian tipped for the INT was a little off target, but watching his over paid jiggly butt drop
    easy balls that would have moved the chains really ticked me off.
    Brett Fevre... Favre... Frenche... screw it, champioooonship!!!!!

    Thanks for the read......

    Favre showed his risky side with rainbows downfield last year with the New York Jets.
    He was off-target for most of last Sunday's game against San Francisco, but the winning drive in the final minute was a vintage performance.
    Funny how the deep ball and accuracey throwing it has been glossed over because of his velocity.......

    "It's fine," wide receiver Bernard Berrian said. "T-Jack throws harder anyway."
    Besides, we all know it isn't how hard you throw it.
    Its the accuracy or TJ would still be out there.....
    I noticed your trying to stir things up first thing this morning.


    There was a nice little remark in here about why some of the receivers might be having a harder time catching his passes:

    "As soon as you turn around his ball is right there," wide receiver Darius Reynaud said. "You've got to hurry up and get your hands up. I caught some in practice last week: As soon as I turned around the ball is right in my face. So I had to put my hands up. I almost missed it, but I caught it."

    Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe said he has had to concentrate harder to catch Favre's passes.

    "It's a really tight spiral," Shiancoe said. "The spin is the real difference in what I've seen from other quarterbacks. Other quarterbacks might throw just as hard, but the spin is a little different so you've got to really look it in to your hands."
    Nope, not stirring anything up.
    Posted some articles with good stuff as well.
    No way your gonna get me in dutch over LNAD.

    AFter signing him I expected him to be overpaid.
    Dropping balls like that all day though makes him grossly overpaid...and that I am not cool with.
    Pull it together B2X!

    Two sides to every coin.
    Just because it hits them in the hands doesn't make it catchable.

    Could've got there early, Might have hit them back shoulder/front shoulder when it was supposed to be on the other shoulder, could've been screened a bit in flight etc etc etc.

    If the ball hits them in the hands, yes, they should catch it, but that ball also needs to be a catchable ball.
    Long story short, lots of things go into making it catchable other than did it hit them in the hands.

    Good to hear you're taking the high road and not holding Brett's past against him.
    Everyone deserves a second chance.

    That statement is flat out wrong.
    He was only off target about 4 or 5 throws last week.
    He must not have seen the drops in the game and figured since he was "only" 26 for 41 that he was "off target".
    Those 6 drops would have made him 32 for 41 with even more yardage.
    I am not making excuses for him but I am poiinting out the fact he wasn't as off target as this guy is trying to say.
    So let me get this straight, a WR can't drop a ball but the QB can be off, even if it is 4 or 5 throws?

    And guess what, believe it or not I watched with an open mind, and he was off on several throws.
    The 2 at the end (Rice on the Right Sideline and PH Left Side) were throws he should have made.
    Syd would have had huge yards and PH was wide open into the endzone.

    As I've said repeatedly, this is a team effort.
    WR's, OL, TE's, RB's and yes QB's need to be on to make it work.

    (By the way, there were several throws that were behind recievers that they caught.
    Anyone hacking on the recievers for those catches?
    )


    Didn't think so....... ;D

    Ha, don't be so quick to give me props.
    Still can't stand the cat.
    I am taking the high road cause it is best for the site.
    Nothing more, nothing less.
    ;D

    By the way, Webby will have to pay be big time for that stance.

    While that may be true in some instances, more often than not if the ball hits the WR in the hands he should catch it...period.

    agreed.
    When you're playing at an NFL level, anything that hits your hands is catchable.
