Tarvaris is playing his butt off, yet all they can talk about is Favre. I expected it, but still. if the backup is outplaying the starter, say so. call it like you see it.

What bugs me is the announcers and those fans who spent the last 15 years telling us how terrible/risky/thoughtless/inconsistent are now tripping over their boners gushing about how amazing Brett is.


Unfortunately that's how it is.

Favre wasn't sharp, but come on, he's only had a few practices. His fault? Absolutely, but I don't think anyone can begrudge him to be a little rusty having not done something for several months and play at a professional level.

Tavaris has a point to prove and he's out there almost lights out, despite a few boneheaded plays (seriously, 5 yards beyond the line of scrimmage?). Good for him, maybe this will spur him to finally become a solid QB.

The main thing that stood out to me was a complete lack of chemistry between Favre and the receivers. He didn't know if they were going to keep going or stop in the zone. They didn't know where he was going to throw it.

I don't put much stock into what the media thinks. Playing with high schoolers is not the same as playing with NFL caliber players. You can't expect to improve in professional baseball playing with plastic bats and wiffle balls. This game is a scratch for Brett, next week we should have a better indication whether Brett's getting good mpg or not on that body and mind of his.

of course. I mean, he didn't look good. didn't look awful either. he looked like a guy who joined the team three days ago. but the announcers, blaming his poor performance on everything but Favre. get real. he'll get much better. he's only been on teh team for a few days for cryin' out loud. don't make excuses for him. you're better than that... maybe you're not.
