I really believe this team has a lot of potential - whether it's this year or in years to come, I don't know.

It's hard to throw for 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns in good shape or bad shape.

I didn't know what to expect coming into this year. There were a lot of question marks, and I think that's obvious now. Can we overcome it? Time will tell.

It's the hand we're dealt. We've put ourselves in this position, and we've got to find a way to get out of it.

It was nice to get this win, birthday or not. There's days when I wake up now, when I say, 'This is going to be a rough one.' You just have to fight through the pain.

We got to finish the deal. And how do we do that? By doing the little things correctly.

Yeah, maybe if we make that extra point we go into overtime, ... But if I make that last throw, that's what Brett Favre is all about. ... When called upon, I expect to make those plays. So, yeah, I feel like I let this team down.

With each game I play, each season I play, everyone would agree with me, I'm running out of chances.

I'd write over and over, 'I will not throw into coverage,' .
