Favre fantastic against first-time starters

An earlier blog post noted the hope that New England should have. But there is a flipside to it when squaring off against New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre.

Favre is 5-0 versus quarterbacks making their first NFL starts, as New England’s Matt Cassel is expected to do on Sunday.

Here’s a look at Favre’s victims — QBs who lost in their first career starts against him — which Cassel will be trying to avoid Sunday.

(1) Bill Musgrave, Den — Dec. 8, 1996 (lost 41-6)
(2) Koy Detmer, Phi — Nov. 29, 1998 (lost 24-16)
(3) Joey Harrington, Det — Sept. 22, 2002 (lost 37-31)
(4) Jarious Jackson, Den — Dec. 28, 2003 (lost 31-3)
(5) Tarvaris Jackson, MinĀ  — Dec. 21, 2006 (lost 9-7)
