"From the point of view of a coach, they will have to demand that he does not play as ruthlessly as he does," Favre told The Athletic. "What I would say to him physically is, 'Hey, Josh. I get it. I see you diving and people run over. I was also that guy. But listen, man. Take it from a guy who played for a long time and maybe learned later than I should. There is a time and a place where you want extra yards. That was not it. You have to be smarter. "
Favre added," Now he'll say, "You're right, Brett, I know." But it may take a few more beats before he says, "You know, Brett has really right. "
Allen has dealt Jones a pretty brutal blow to the piece.
