Favre: 'I can play a lot better'
Quarterback Brett Favre said Thursday during his weekly news conference that he knows he must play better but he must guard against becoming impatient as he tries to help the Minnesota Vikings turn around their season.
"That's the biggest challenge I face right now, is not pressing the issue," Favre said.
The Vikings are off to an 0-2 start, with losses to the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins, and Favre has thrown only one touchdown pass and four interceptions in two games.
Favre said that his current level of play is "not good enough."
He also said: "We've got to score more points.... You can't make it any harder by turning the ball over and taking too many chances. I know I've got to err a little more toward cautious.... It's hard to be patient and try to piece this thing together because we're doing it as we play."
The Vikings are playing without their top wide receiver, Sidney Rice, who is to miss at least half the season after undergoing hip surgery. They failed to trade for San Diego Chargers wideout Vincent Jackson this week.
"The guys that we have, me included, we have to make it work," Favre said.
Favre said it's up to him, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Coach Brad Childress to figure out how to jump-start an offense that has totaled 19 points in two games.
"I can play a lot better.... Right now we're kind of grasping at straws, trying to figure things out," Favre said. "We've got to get on the same page. I've got to make better decisions. It ultimately starts with Darrell and I and Brad."
