Favre not only reason for Vikings' 0-2 start

ALLEN PARK -- Even though Brett Favre arrived late at Minnesota Vikings’ training camp, coach Brad Childress is not using that as an excuse for the Vikings’ 0-2 start.

“You can’t throw everything at his feet,’’ Childress said in a conference call today (Wednesday).

The Lions (0-2) play at Minnesota on Sunday. Childress is 7-1 against the Lions.

The 40-year-old quarterback has thrown one touchdown pass and four interceptions in the first two games, losses to New Orleans and Miami.

In the 2009 season Favre went 10 straight games without an interception, with the Vikings going 9-1 in that stretch. It was a team record surpassing Daunte Culpepper’s eight straight without an interception in 2004.

In Favre’s career he’s thrown 57 touchdowns and been intercepted 37 times in 34 games against the Lions.
