Favre's had a very good career. I just think his body is starting to break down. It's completely expected. He's 41. All of this talk of the "Iron Man" made more sense when he was still in his mid-30s. Look at what happened when he played hurt with the Jets. Gutting it out was counter productive.

While there is no excuse for how the Vikings played last night, I do have a question about one particular play. The play in question was when Holmes of the Jets was called for holding to nullify the Jets' successful third down play from their own nine yard line. I believe it was third and 15. I forget which quarter it occurred. The following play was Tomlinson running up the middle for the first. Did anyone notice that the holding play started at the 9 yard line and the next play (after the holding call) also started at the 9 yard line? I thought the ball should have been placed at the 4 1/2 yard line -- half the distance to the goal. Perhaps it would not have mattered but the Tomlinson run was a 17 yard gain, which would have meant the Jet's punting from deep in their own end rather than a first down.
Was there an offsetting penalty I missed that caused the ball to remain at the 9 yard line?
I was questioning that spot as well, it should have been half the distance to the goal. Not sure why it wasn't discussed, or challenged.

The ball was placed where it was because it was a spot foul past the line of scrimmage. When the runner is past the line of scrimmage and a WR holds for extra yardage the foul is assessed from where the hold occurred.
