    He has lost some arm strength and accuracy. Does that mean he is worse than any other option the Packers have? No.

    He gives the Packers the best chance to win and to attract FA. Just my opinion.

    My point was that he really hasn't "lost" arm strength and accuracy....

    I think it's a fallacy....

    As do many other Packer "fans", NFL people like Troy Aikman, Phil Simms, and Steve Young, and many, many other people in the business who know....

    (except for a small, misguided, fringe contingent of Packer "fans" for some unknown reason.)

    Troy Aikman, Phil Simms, Steve Young, and those people don't watch every Packers game.

    From the 90's to today is his arm strength the same?

    It might have went from a 100 mph fast ball to a 92

    And if thats the case big deal??

    I think what Aikman, Young and the rest mean is that he still has a powerfull arm and CAN bring the heat...

    as far as being accurate?

    2006 was his lowest comp percentage..

    Does that mean its slipping? maybe, or maybe that the wr dropped to many balls too..but it is interesting..

    P@ck I understand how you and others may feel that way and it doesn't bother me.
    Personally I don't think he has lost anything as far as accuracy goes but I don't see how a 37 yr old man is going to have the exact same arm strength as a 25-28 yr old man. I know pros are atypical and the normal rules of an aging body don't apply to them. Nevertheless, I have seen him underthrow his receivers when they are in a fly pattern down the sideline a lot more often in the past couple of years than he did in years 3-7. Some of the thime no doubt it is a communication problem between him and the receiver, the wind and weather are factors other times. Pressure from the defense and his OL's ability to give him time and room to throw also contributes as well. But at least a little bit of it has to be attributed to his arm. (And as I said I think it is more than just a little bit.)

    I should have he said.."He hasn't lost much arm strength"...

    Perhaps some..(but not so much that it really matters anyway), as some people would have you believe.....(that was my point..)

    You know maybe the discussion shouldn't be how much strength has Brett lost but how much does he still have? If he still has a 92 MPH fast ball that's still pretty good as long as he doesn't think it isa 100 one.
    He threw some bullets on the slant passes over the middle in the Chicago game. I prefer him to go to the short and middle routes.

    What Favre brings as far as understanding what's going on across the line when he is under center far outways any arm strengh issues. He's not asked to throw 20+ yard sideline passes anymore in this offense anyhow.

    When he has to let it go between coverages he can get it there as fast as anyone out there.

    He does miss a few more a game than he used to but he see's what's going on with the defense and knows what to call as well as anyone in the game.

    As far as the interview goes Favre see's the end and knows he's going to miss it regardless of if that's this year or next.

    Too me it's like bringing up a lost loved one and the reality of it is emotional for him regardless of when it actually happens. What I see when this happens is a guy who wishes more than anything in his heart of hearts that he was 30 years old again and it's hard for him to go there.

    favre has lost alittle bit of accuracy and power but i dont think its as bad as we think it is.

    favre really only has one good recivers and the other recivers are rookies or just can catch the ball. their have been many times when balls where their where dropped passes(one of the reasons our red zone o is not good).

    give favre at least one more good reciver and i guarantee his numbers will be alot better(comp %, and tds).
