Brett Favre. Jet.
My brother texted me while I was walking the dog this morning:
WE GOT FAVRE
I checked Jetsblog (probably the best source for Jets news) and it’s true.
Chad Pennington will be leaving, and that makes me saddest of all. I loved that soft-armed smart-ass QB and was pulling for him to make those 5 yard throws that let Coles make plays in the open field.
Here is a link to a last night’s conference call that speaks to Favre’s commitment to the team (…) and Brett’s concerns about moving to New York.
And from the NY Sun, the Brett Favre trade deal is conditional:
The terms of the trade state that the Jets will send the Packers a fourth-round draft pick, which can become a third-round pick if Favre plays 50% of the Jets’ offensive snaps, and a second-round pick if Favre plays 70% of the snaps and the Jets make the playoffs.
The Jets would owe the Packers a first-round pick if Favre takes 80% of the snaps and the Jets make it to the Super Bowl.
My first reaction is to think about all the interceptions Favre would throw, and then I look at the depth chart, and I start to think, “you know… this isn’t that bad a team at all.”
Then again… there is the dreaded MADDEN CURSE.
