On Sunday the Green Bay Packers will present Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre with his official Hall of Fame ring. The three-time NFL Most Valuable Player will be present to witness Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in action, and Favre sang his praises yesterday in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio.
"It's a little bit of everything -- pocket, bootleg, down the field, short screens -- and just the poise with which he has carried himself and the accuracy which he has shown is incredible, and the composure," Favre said. "And I probably, like most people [wonder] can he continue this week in and week out? And I know it is very early into his young career, but I have to admit I am extremely impressed at the way he has played."
[embeddedad0]Favre also had an attention-grabbing response when asked how Tony Romo should handle his return from his injury, boldly suggesting the Cowboys ride the rookie's hot hand.
"I try to put myself in Tony's shoes," Favre said. "I'm sure Tony wants to play. I mean, he doesn't want to get injured, he wants to be productive, but you have to look at the dynamics right now. And [the Cowboys] really are hitting on all cylinders. So, this is hypothetically thinking, if you are Tony you say, 'You know what, as much as I want to play, I don't want to press the issue.' I want to play but I'm going to let it play out right now and it is probably better if Dak starts struggling and then they bring me in rather than they put me in and then all of a sudden we're not hitting on all cylinders and everyone's like, 'Ah, they should have got rid of Tony, blah, blah.' ... I'm not saying that you tell [Jason] Garrett or Jerry Jones, 'Look, I don't want to play.' I think, you want to play but I don't want to mess up the dynamics of the team. If we get to a point where we're struggling, then it is time for me to come in. Now, I know that's a hard thing to do. ... I just think you are better if you wait until you are really needed. And I mean no disrespect whatsoever to Tony."
