Brett Farve Case Study: Pain Decreases Performance

Brett Farve Case Study:  Pain Decreases Performance

I am so stoked about the Vikings game this Sun night!  It is going to be close but I predict Adrian Peterson will have a break out game and silence the crowd, thus allowing Brett to pass for some major yardage and a win.

Can you say………Superbowl!!!  (Fingers crossed)

Pain Decreases Performance

As you know, I tend to write about pain because it has a bad effect on performance.

This is especially true for accuracy.  If you are in pain, your ability to accurately perform on the playing field will be diminished.

Let’s look at our good buddy Brett Farve.

Career Stats Passing
Season Team QBRat Comp Att Pct Yds Y/G Y/A TD Int
2008-09 NY Jets 81 343 522 65.7 3472 217 6.7 22 22
2009-10 Minnesota 107.2 363 531 68.4 4202 262.6 7.9 33 7

You see that the number of interception last year (and some other years) was very high.  It was well know that Brett had a pesky shoulder that was causing him pain.  In 2008-09 he threw 22 interception and this year, only 7 so far to the wrong guy.

This year (after getting the pesky said shoulder fixed), the interceptions dropped by a ton!   Hmmmm…….

The Perfect Case Study?

Of course this is not a perfect case study in any sense, but my guess is that pain in his arm dramatically affected his passing accuracy.

What do you think?

Who Will Win This Sunday?

Drop a comment on who you think will win the big game this Sunday night vs the Saints!  I say Vikings!

Rock on
