Before I get jumped on, hear me out...
The more Favre gets comfortable in this offense, the scarier this team looks. He's playing as well or better than I've ever seen him play. The INTs are way down, and his efficiency is remarkable for any QB, regardless of age. Oh, and don't forget there's a young fella wearing #28 standing right behind him.
The defense is getting better. They've played well in spurts, but still struggle giving up big plays. Start taking those away, and this team becomes frightening.
The special teams looks better than I can remember! The returns are fun to watch with Percy, Darius, and Jaymar! We can still do better in coverage though.
Looking around the NFC, I'm not sure I see I team I'm afraid of facing in the playoffs. The Saints look like they can score at will, and to be honest, that's a NFC champioinship matchup I'd love to see... in either dome!
I'm hoping Favre finishes out both years of his contract, and I'm hoping his health holds up the entire time, because this team's rise and fall will come down to their overall health and minimizing their mistakes.
