"I felt 38 today," Favre said Wednesday after New York's morning practice. "I'm not going to lie to you."
Favre fired a few duds in his fifth practice since joining the Jets, saying his rocket right arm is a bit tired.
"My arm's kind of dragging a little bit today," Favre said. "It's not really sore, but just fatigued. To be honest with you, I'm surprised that, I don't want to say I feel good, that I've been able to make it through every practice so far."
"I didn't throw the ball that well this morning, underthrew some throws," Favre said. "No pain, but I'm 38 years old. It's going to be fatigued a little bit."

He's not in shape but he's going to be getting the full amount of reps and more so he will be ready in Game 1.

BTW, this thread belongs in the AFC East section. Favre is not a Dolphin.

This is most likely not anything to be concerned about. QB's get arm fatigue in training camp/preseason. It happens to QB's still in their prime. This is an older article.




Brady’s Approach to Arm Fatigue - Taking it Easy (http://www.patriotsgab.com/2007/08/16/bradys-approach-to-arm-fatigue-taking-it-easy/)

Posted by Matt Loede on August 16th, 2007 filed in Features (http://www.patriotsgab.com/category/features/)

Quarterback Tom Brady is getting ready for what should be a Super Bowl run this season for his team by simply taking it easy. Brady, who just turned 30, is taking it down a notch, and according to Thursday’s Boston Herald will be limiting his throws in practice this season to make sure that come gameday he will be as close to 100 percent as possible. Last season Brady missed some practices as well as wore a neoprene sleeve to combat aging and fatigue on his arm.

Yep, it's so incredibly strange for a QB's arm to feel tired or sore after a few days of camp:lol: Have you guys followed football long?

If it's sore the first week of September then you may have a case. Now, kinda irrelevant don't you think?
