Favre and the Jets
The rudimentary image above me is harbinger of things to come — meaning, Brett Favre has been traded to the New York J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets. Considering where the story was initially headed (Tampa Bay), this is somewhat of a surprise. As of now, the compensation is expected to be a draft pick based on the performance of the Jets this upcoming season.
What does this do in the way of the AFC East? Can the newly Favre’d Jets knock off the Patriots? Do the Jets have the weapons to do so? Is this necessarily a better team than the Packers would’ve been with Brett? Hopefully, the trade will put Favre/Green Bay soap opera to bed.
Of course, we now have the impending New York media blitz to deal with, but at least it’s a new chapter. More tomorrow.
