I have two words

That’s all that is needed to conclusively refute the Favre doubters who are casting aspersions on the Viking quarterback’s ability to maintain his level of performance over the course of a 16-game season. Yes, we know he started fast with the Jets last year. Yes, we know he faded in the stretch. Yes, we know the late-season fade cost the Jets a playoff spot. Yes, we know the Vikes haven’t beaten anyone but a banged-up Green Bay team yet and the competition only gets tougher. Yes, we know all the risks. And yet, we’re perfectly willing, we’re cheerfully willing, to gamble on a 40-year old gunslinger’s arm even so.
