The Only Important News In The NFL

Favre's game has taken Packers to new level

GREEN BAY, Wis. - You can teach an old Favre new tricks.
The Green Bay Packers might not be one win from Super Bowl XLII if the Brett Favre of recent seasons had resurfaced in last Saturday's 42-20 victory over Seattle.
That Favre could very well have reared his turnover-prone head while pressing to erase an early 14-0 deficit. After the game, he admitted his historical M.O. has been to "try to get it all back right now" when falling behind.
But with quarterbacks coach Tom Clements reminding him there's no such thing as a 14-point play, Favre steadied an offense reeling from two Ryan Grant fumbles. Favre answered Seattle's second score by completing all four of his pass attempts on Green Bay's ensuing possession, including a 15-yard touchdown to wide receiver Greg Jennings that started a 21-0 Packers run.

"I guess in my case it's part of the maturing and aging process," Favre said Wednesday during a news conference at Lambeau Field. "At least it was in that game."
