Favre not a fix for all that ails Jets offense
by Steve Serby, New York Post
Brett Favre dropped back to pass on third-and-1 near midfield. Fullback Tony Richardson sneaked out into the left flat wide open.
And Favre never saw him.
Favre instead threw short left for Thomas Jones, and got nothing.
Now it was fourth-and-1, and Favre went for it. And he found Brad Smith deep right for 29 yards.
Except an illegal shift penalty brought it back, and the Jets punted.
For sure, the Messiah quarterback of the Jets (9-for-12, 96 yards) titillated Giants Stadium with some wondrous Namathian throws last night against the Giants. But with Chad Pennington and the Dolphins alarmingly two weeks away, this is the only way to sum up the current state of the Jets' offense: Favre from perfect.
"You can't win making those type of mistakes and that's all of us," he said.
