First, ngub12, Favre's strength is not an issue, but the injuries to his thumb have made every deep ball a jump ball, so he does work the short and middle routes more than he used to.
great observations poopah, but, if u look at game logs of last year, especially the last 8 weeks or so when favre's hand was of biggest concern, he actually was throwing bombs to walker.
check this link out...
pay attention to yards, tds, but expecially avg. per reception. i think mr favre is just fine throwing the deep ball. an offseason of recooperation will help too.
anyway, this is why my favorite to break out is walker. he really blossomed torwards the end of the season, and hes a beast (6-3 220), fast, and of those four wr's has the best qb throwing to him.
