All he has to do is hand the ball off and occasionally hit a wide open receiver because all the defenders are in the box. This is the ideal situation for an old nag. Think Elway in his last two years with Terrell Davis.
I disagree 100%. Favre doesn't have the self-discipline to be a "game-manager". If they wanted a game-manager, they shoulda dragged Trent Dilfer outta retirement.
Brett is gonna throw more INTs than TDs this year. Last year he threw 22 TDs and 22 INTs. His RB was Thomas Jones, who led the AFC in rushing. Yes, Peterson is much better than Jones, but the jets' steady running game didn't prevent him from throwing 22 picks. That's a LOT of turnovers.
When Brett steps on the field, he's act as though he's in his twenties, when he's really got a 40 year old arm. It happens to all of the greats. They simply will not listen to their aging bodies.
