    After watching the game yesterday afternoon and reading some of these threads today these are my thoughts:

    1) Chad Pennington is a stop-gap till our future QB (hopefully Beck or Henne) is ready. He may not loose us the game, but he won't win us many.

    2) Running the ball is our strength. This means anytime we get behind like yesterday it will be difficult for us to come back. The fact that we were facing Brett Favre only amplified our weaknesses.

    3) I can't believe that hail mary worked. That was the difference in the game. I'd call it luck, but Brett Favre does it a lot.

    4) I hear all these comparisons to last years team and that is ridiculous. The team was in a position to win, and moved the ball deliberately. Last year if we moved the ball it seemed more like the opposition made a mistake more then any skill of ours.

    5) The coach didn't lose this game for us. Cameron left me wondering what the heck he was doing. Ernest Wilford was inactive today, key wr acquisition made during the off-season inactive. That gives me confidence, that the coaching staff will play the best players regardless of salary or history.

    6) From what I saw, we are headed in the right direction. I look forward to future improvement and see where we are at the end of the season. I think we will be much improved team.

    This is my first thread ever! I'm a long time visitor, very infrequently do I post. But I'm excited for this team, in spite of the lose.

    Chad is what we knew he was, accurate but predictable. He did what he did to us last year, which is to play it close but throw the pick to lose the game.

    Hail Mary ... was it luck? or Did favre see him wide open and threw it up there? was it a lob to get it over hill?? I'll have to rewatch again but I don't freaking want to ..

    Since when is it a Hail Mary for 20 yards?

    It was a lucky play to be certain. I wouldnt call it a Hail May per se, but how many quarterbacks would've thrown that pass? Quite a few would've tucked it and taken the sack, not thrown it in the middle of the field.

    This is where (as much as I hate to admit it) Favre's experience payed off. He knew it was 4th down and an INT doesnt hurt. He threw it up and got lucky. Simple as that.

    When you’re not throwing to anyone in particular, just praying that one of your guys comes down with it.

    I disagree about the hail mary, they showed a reply of it and the guy was covered. The saftey came off of him for some reason and moved toward the LOS, if he had stayed his guy he could have made a play. It was poor execution on the phins part, not luck on Bretts.

    I thinks what Favre did was a very well designed pass, he decide to stumble back, close both eyes and deliver a perfect touchdown pass.

    Yeah not hail mary in the sense of it was super long pass. But hail mary in, toss it up and hope your guy comes down with it, hence hail mary (praying).

    But think about it, it's 4th down, you're going to lose on downs. It's not a lucky or heave hoe pass, it was quite appropriate for the situation.

    I just rewatched most of the game and I'm a tad upset about the randy starks part of that play. I mean, its hard to tell from the zoomed out angle but it really does seem like the jets lineman was grabbing at him from behind while he was running towards favre. did it make a difference? who knows, but they were probably watching to see if they could call roughing the passer or something

    Stop gaps generally haven't led a team to their conference championship game twice. That was his first game in a high pressure situation against the best team the Jets could buy during the offseason. It was tough and he handled it pretty well. Let's at least wait a couple more games before we decide that he doesn't have what it takes anymore.
