No Favre didn't dump down to Green all day, he dumped down to Driver, Franks, Green, Henderson and Fisher all day on 5-15 yd passes. He had 3 receptions over 20 yards all day, i.e. he didn't challenge down field as much as Carr did against Detroit. McNabb had 5 tosses over 20 yds on 42 attempts. Carr had 5 tosses over 20 yds and should have had a 6th but for bad officiating on 34 attempts. Taking strikes down the field was not the difference in the out come of the Texans' and Eagles' games against Detroit.
