Leslie Frazier has watched new Vikings quarterback Brett Favre pass for two days against his defense in practice. Favre's passes haven't lost any zip, he said.
"I've seen more dropped balls than before," the Vikings' defensive coordinator said Wednesday.
Those drops were by receivers, not defenders. That's how hard Favre has been throwing, despite a slight rotator cuff tear and offseason biceps tendon surgery.
"He has more velocity (than other quarterbacks) on the football and guys have got to get used to catching the ball," Frazier said. "He's had that everywhere he's been. When guys first begin to catch footballs from him, they have to adjust because he puts lots of velocity on the ball. A lot of velocity; he really zings it."
Frazier said Favre throws as hard as any quarterback he has seen.
