ANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Quarterback Brett Favre was never fully incorporated into the New York Jets offense last season until mid to late-October, says one-time Jets offensive assistant Jimmy Raye, who is now the San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator -- and will face his former QB Sunday at the Metrodome.

Raye also revealed Thursday that Favre's torn biceps tendon forced the Jets to severely limit his throws during practices late in the 2008 season.

"As best I can remember, that was very difficult for us," said Raye, who was running backs coach with the Jets from 2006-08. He said Favre's late arrival during the exhibition season -- he was traded from the Packers to the Jets on Aug. 7, 2008 for a conditional fourth-round pick -- proved disruptive for an offense that had grown accustomed to Chad Pennington.

Some of that stuff obviously has to be true. To me, though, it sounds a bit like this may have been a guy who just didn't support the Favre move in the first place.
