Favre Passes Along Advice to Stafford

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Keeping with his never-say-quit-even-if-everyone-wants-you-to mantra, Vikings' quarterback Brett Favre encouraged Lions rookie Matthew Stafford to "keeping slinging it," in a conference call with the Detroit media.

According to the Detroit News: "I saw a couple plays he made in preseason, some really good throws," Favre said Wednesday in a conference call previewing Sunday's game between the Lions and Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field. "I mean, he's got all the tools, there's no doubt about it. But there's only one way to get better, and that's play. They drafted him for a lot of reasons, and from what I can tell, I think he'll have a bright future."
