[QUOTE=MWM]What happened to Brett Favre after Holmgren left? He's not been the same QB since, although he's still very good. Quote)
Actually ,overall Brett's stats since 1998 have been comparible to his stats during the Holmgin years. Granted he reached his peak in 1995 and 1996 under Holmgrin but I think thats more an effect of him peaking as an athelete than who his coach is. Indeed Brett's rating this year is better than any year under Holmgin prior to 1995, and certainly better than his last year under Holmgrin
(92.4 vs 87.8).
Indeed when you look at Holmgrin's record since leaving Green Bay, its pretty obvious that Holmgrin misses Favre a lot more than Favre misses Holmgrin.
Also, if you've got a problem with media hype, take advantage of it. The line is based in part on hype so use that to your advantage. For example when New England played the Colts, I felt the line was out of wack because of overhyped Peyton. I took the Patriots and cleaned up big time.
