Favre Looks Solid

Aug 31, 2009

Brett Favre looked way better in his second preseason game with the Vikings, leading them to a 17-10 halftime lead over Houston.  Favre was 9 of 13 for 105 yards and 1 TD.  The TD was on a nice screen that Chester Taylor took 28 yards to the house. 

Pass protection again was a bit of a problem as Houston put pressure on Favre.  They do have an above average line though, so that’s to be expected.  Favre wasn’t able to go deep, but their primary deep threat, Bernard Berrian, did not play as he’s nursing a hamstring injury.

Favre did look to Visanthe Shiancoe early, so you may want to move him up on your draft boards if you haven’t already had your draft yet.  Favre is a low end QB2 in my opinion.  Chester Taylor has value in flex positions, as well as the obvious Adrian Peterson handcuff.  Percy Harvin made a lot of mental mistakes.  His talent is there, but if he can’t clean that up his opportunities will be limited.

**UPDATE**
Brett Favre stayed in to start the 3rd Quarter and finished 13 of 18 for 142 yards and 1 TD.  He also did a cheap crack back block on Texans Safety Eugene Wilson.

    All I heard when I was coming home was he may have a cracked rib, Then he looks good, But I really do not think he will make through the season. At one time it could get very ugly in Minnesota, (If Favre gets hurt and stays in the games)
    If he gets knocked out and Jackson takes over and looks good then the Vikings may really excel, I just do not think it can happen with Favre

    They are going to have to protect him better to keep him on his feet. I just don’t trust t-jack

    Just saw the reply of his crack-back block. Pathetic.
