Expert opinion

With second-year quarterback Tarvaris Jackson appearing overwhelmed in the two games he's played this season, Green Bay's Brett Favre was asked Wednesday how long it took before he felt comfortable in the position.

"You know what, I think it is overwhelming the first couple of years," Favre said. "It's hard. He's only two years into it, or a year and three games. I think from watching him he's going to be fine."

Favre said he's continuing to learn things about the Packers' offense, even in his 17th season.

"From that standpoint, it's always changing," he said, "but where you feel comfortable is with your teammates, with your surroundings, where you stand on the team. OK, now I know that I am the guy and the fans know it, the team, the media. That part of it becomes second nature. You're not always looking over your shoulder and you're not worried about this and about that. That for me kind of came somewhere in my second, halfway through my second season (in Green Bay), which was my third in the NFL."
