Richardson Was Wide Open


Recommended Posts

Anyone see this last night? The 3rd down play when Richardson was WIDE open to the left, Favre instead threw short to Thomas Jones. Steve Serby wrote about it.

BRETT Favre dropped back to pass on third-and-1 near midfield. Fullback Tony Richardson sneaked out into the left flat wide open.

And Favre never saw him.

Now it was fourth-and-1, and Favre went for it. And he found Brad SmithBrad Smith t.gif deep right for 29 yards.

Except an illegal shift penalty brought it back, and the JetsNew York Jets t.gif punted.

For sure, the Messiah quarterback of the Jets (9-for-12, 96 yards) titillated Giants Stadium with some wondrous Namathian throws last night against the Giants. But with Chad Pennington and the Dolphins alarmingly two weeks away, this is the only way to sum up the current state of the Jets' offense: Favre from perfect.

"You can't win making those type of mistakes and that's all of us," he said.

I was shocked he couldn't see him. With Favre's arm they should put him in the mezzanine, the view of the field is pretty good from there.
