Favre, Rice Improv Special

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 16, 2009 – 1:38 pm

Brett Favre has completed 67 passes to Sidney Rice so far in 2009, 5 of which have resulted in TDs. Their success together is largely the function of careful game planning throughout the week in preparation for the opponent.

But sometimes in the heat of battle, strategy is tossed out the window and players have to simply play the game. In those moments, an ability to improvise is more important than the ability to scheme and strategize.

One of those improvisation moments came to fruition for Favre and Rice last week against the Cincinnati Bengals. And the QB-WR combo passed the test, hooking up for a 9-yard TD on a crucial 3rd and 8 from the 9-yardline.

NFL Films breaks the play down, with film study provided by Greg Cosell and soundbites from both Favre and Rice. Check out the video by clicking here.

The play gave the Vikings their first TD of the game and also a 10-0 lead that eventually yielded a 30-10 victory over the Bengals.

    Rice has always been a good reciever just had no one to get him the ball constantly.Most qb’s click with one reciever more that the others and rice is favre’s main target.Berrian would be a very good second if he could hold on to the ball but now schianoce is the second.When harvin gets it going a little better watch out we will have another carter,moss combo with an outstanding tight end to boot.I’m happy favre is here because the qb’s we have will learn a lot from him and they are young so we can shore up the db’s in the draft.The ones we have are good especially winfiled but they are consistant and we need consistancy at that position.
