It’s not like Favre has a weak arm. He can get the ball anywhere on the field. It showed his ceiling.”

Running back Matt Forte (turf toe), who missed last week’s game, is in danger of missing Sunday’s matchup against the Browns. There’s no reason to rush him back. Bilal Powell and rookie Eli McGuire combined for 256 rushing yards and two touchdowns last week. The Jets lose a bigger, more physical back with Forte, but they gain speed with Powell and McGuire. — Rich Cimini
