Seifert On Favre's Late Season Collapses

Kevin Seifert has a great breakdown of Favre late season breakdowns.  Maybe Favre's injury was serious, and maybe it was only an excuse, but in any event Favre's performance on the field during the last five games was not dramatically different than in the three previous seasons.

Over the last 5 games of the last 4 seasons "Favre's completion percentage dropped nearly nine points on average after Game 11, and he threw nearly three times as many interceptions (34) as touchdowns (13) over the combined final stretches of those seasons."

Anyone who thinks Favre still has it in him to finish a 16 game season is fooling themselves.
