Jets Land Favre

August 7, 2008

I woke up this morning to some wonderful news.  My New York Jets got themselves a quarterback for this season.  In a stunning turnaround the Jets made an offer that Green Bay couldn’t turn down and now Brett Favre is the new quarterback of the Jets.  As a long suffering Jets fan this news makes this season worth watching.  The Jets spent loads of cash on the likes of Alan Faneca, Damien Woody, Kris Jenkins, and Calvin Pace, but had a huge question mark behind center with Pennington and Clemens.  The Jets sent Green Bay a conditional 4th round pick that can go as high as a first round depending on how Favre and the Jets perform. 

At 39 years old Favre is not in his prime, but he is coming off on of his best seasons.  He will not have to carry the Jets this season, but only lead a much improved team compared to last years 4-12 mark.  Favre has two very capable receivers in Coles and Cotchery, two solid running backs in Jones and Washington, and solid tight ends with Baker and ex-teammate Franks.

If Favre is only a one year rental at least he will provide a fun year to watch and make being a Jets fan a bit more fun compared to last season.
