A Jets’ Fan Open Letter to Brett Favre
Brett Favre tells ESPN’s Ed Werder that he will retire from football, and the Jets. Well, it’s been a long… year… and I won’t believe it until we go through week 8 of the season and you’re not “itching to come back,” but here are some parting words:
DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU WHERE THE LORD SPLIT YOU.
Wishing you a happy retirement with your wife in Mississippi. Enjoy your Wrangler commercials, and may you come back for celebrity games, commentating, a few movie star roles, and perhaps a stint as head coach of Southern Miss. And thank you for the classy statement:
“Mike and Woody, as well as the entire organization, have been nothing short of outstanding,” Favre said in the email. “My teammates _ Thomas and Kerry included _ were a pleasure to play with. Eric (Mangini) could not have been any better. I enjoyed playing for him. My time with the Jets was short, but I’m honored to be given that chance.”
The Jets did not have an immediate comment. A Jets official said Wednesday night that no definite word had come from Favre yet but added, “that can change any minute.”
The fans appreciate it. And I am sure Eric Mangini, now on to working in Cleveland as head coach, appreciates it as well.
