ARNIE STAPLETON AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY Wis AP Brett Favre who celebrates his 27th birthday on Thursday is playing as well as he and maybe any other quarterback ever has In his last 16 games counting play offs Favre has thrown 49 touchdowns and just seven interceptions And that hasnt come against the leagues lightweights either In one of the finest sustained displays ever by a quarterback in the NFL began with an unlikely fivetouchdown per formance against Chicago at Lambeau Field last Nov 12 Favre was hampered that day by a bum ankle and a reduced game plan that stripped the rollouts and bootlegs at which he excels In that Bears game last year he was injured and couldnt do all that wild coach Mike Holmgren said I told him to let the system come to him Id like to think that helped
