An encouraging statistic


Favre's career record when his team runs more than it passes:

60-2.  That includes 4 and 0 last year with the Jets.

Those of you who didn't follow the Jets closely last year may not be aware that the last 5 game meltdown, after Favre hurt his arm (and the Jet's brass was aware of that), was also a time when the Jet's play calling became inexplicably pass happy, after they had built their 8-3 record largely on a balanced offense.

The most notable games in that stretch were the Miami game, in which they threw 41 times and ran 21 times (averaging 4 yards per carry), and the 49ers game, in which they threw 31 times and handed off only 11 (and averaged over 5 yards per carry).  They never trailed by more than a TD in the Miami game and were tied or within a TD until late in the 4th quarter in the SF game.

I'm guessing that kind of play selection is not going to happen with AP on the field.
