Kudos to T-P columnist Jeff Duncan for his journalistic "pants on the ground" shots at Brett Favre:
But unless you're wearing purple-colored glasses, the only remotely cheap shot I could see would be McCray's late hit at the end of the reverse handoff. In fact, there were a couple of times Saints defenders had chances to waylay Favre in the pocket, only to pull up or slide by him at the last instant. . . .
The pass was so bad there were only two rational conclusions to be rendered from it: Farve gambled because he either (a.) physically couldn't run; or (b.) cowardly wouldn't. Either way, the Saints defense had successfully delivered its message. . . .
There might be "Favre rules" in Eden Prairie, Minn., but they don't apply in New Orleans.
