Phillips vs. Favre

IRVING, Texas -- Wade Phillips mixed in a gentle jab Monday while gushing about Brett Favre.
"Most quarterbacks at our age don't move around that much," the 62-year-old Phillips said, "but he still moves around well."
Well, it was one of the better one-liners of Phillips' Valley Ranch tenure, at least.
Favre has faced Phillips six times during the course of their lengthy careers, with the quarterback going 3-3 against the Phillips' 3-4.
Wade's team won the two biggest games of the bunch, with the Atlanta Falcons handing the Green Bay Packers their first playoff loss at Lambeau Field in 2002 and the Cowboys claiming the NFC's top seed in 2007.
Favre's stats in those two games: 25-of-56 for 303 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions.
"He's with a different team," Phillips said, dismissing the notion that he's figured out the secret to defending Favre. "He’s got a different group, and he’s playing as well as he played with the championship teams that he’s been with."
