The interesting thing about Warner's feat is that he wasn't the only one with a super-efficient performance on Sunday. Atlanta's Matt Ryan(notes) completed 21 of his 27 passes (77.8 percent), including three touchdowns. Ryan hit seven receivers, and Tony Gonzalez(notes) further proved the superior wisdom of the trade that brought him to Atlanta as he caught seven passes for 71 yards and a score. Gonzo also cleared the middle on Roddy White's(notes) touchdown - just the kind of complementary receiver the Falcons didn't have last season.
For those of you who thought our Brett Favre(notes) spoof last Sunday was a bit unkind, it behooves us to report that #4 completed 23 of his 27 attempts (85.2) for 155 yards and two touchdowns. Favre also set the NFL record with his 271st straight start, which is pretty darned impressive.
