The Packers don't want to give Favre his outright release, because they don't want him to sign with another team in the division. Yes, I know it's only two games out of 16, but it's still a rival if he goes to the Bears or the Vikings. The Packers want to control the situation. It's either make him re-retire as a Packer or trade him out of the NFC North.

Favre traded to the Jets for a conditional 2009 draft pick.

This sucks. Now we all get to hear from the east coast bias sports media is how Favre is going to take a mediocre team to the playoffs. They were a 6-10 team an hour ago, they MIGHT be a 8-8 team now.

First of all the Jets get absolutely no national coverage at all, there is no media bias when it comes to the Jets, so much so in fact that SI.com planend to go to all training camps and didn't say when they would make it to the Jets. Also where did you get that 6-10 from???? everyone was expecting a 8-8 or 9-6 season. If you ever watched the Jets you would know that there problem was on the O-line, they went out and got 2 ex first round picks and multiple pro bowls between them to add to Ferguson and Mangold, 2 very promosing players, other issues was they had no NT to play the 3-4 and they went out and got one of the best in the business.. I'm not sure who said they would be 6-10 but they were seriously deluded.

Now with favre i would say we are more a 9-7/10-6 team, ONLY if he picks up the play-book fast, we now have a deep threat which will open up the run, we have weapons for him in Cotch/Coles/Keller and Baker and if he plays like he did last seaosn then play-offs a in sight.

Don't give me this rubbish about the media though, we get no coverage at all, the only outlets that give us coverage are the NY papers like the Post,Times and Daily News. We might get a bit more national attention with Favre for the first couple of weeks but it will die down.

Gee that post about the Jets getting no media coverage sounds like the other Chicago baseball team...lol. I say with Favre the Jets will finish 9-7. Thats the best I think they will finish expecially in the AFC East with New England and Buffalo looks somewhat improved. This team was a 4-12 team last year, I doubt Favre is going to make that much of an impact, I could be wrong. I know they improved the O-Line but time will tell and its kinda weird a former Packer QB handing off to a former Bears RB.

The Jets play NE twice, @SD, @ Seattle . That should be 4 losses but Im going to say they beat NE once. The twelve other games are winnable... 10-6 could be done.

Jets fans i know expect a 9-7 or 10-6 season, we have some tough games but i think people are under estimating just how much we have improved through FA and the draft. The main problems were the O-line, every NFL expert has said they now have a top 5 O-line in the NFL, there D-Line was poor for one reason we have Robertson playing NT, and he doesn't fit that we now have Jenkins who fits perfectly and commands double coverage. We had no pass rushing, with the new O-line we brought in Pace and Gholston, both are QB hunters. We have improved our receiving with the addition of Keller who looks awesome in TC, we also improved out QB with Favre no doutb about that, just the threat of the long ball opens up the running game, we also brought in Richardson as the FB, one of the better guys in the league at opening up running space for the RB.

Most people over look it because we don't get coverage, even NFL total access said that we probably don't get the attention we deserve, but we should get more now with Favre. I'm not moaning about it as i really don't mind us being the under dogs, the team nobody watches etc but to say that the media will spin this into the Jets going 16-0 orsomething like that is absurd lol

Back on topic, Brett had a goof Press conference yesterday, said all the right things, and was on the sideline for the game learning a few of the plays. Happy Jets fan.

You cant forget the Jets were a playoff team 2 years ago. Their special teams/ return game is no doubt the best in the league. To me special teams and baserunning are very similar. They are way overlooked. I say 10-11 wins. I always liked Pennington though. I think he will go somewhere and do well. He is a leader. I know his injuries have hurt him but the last time I watched Favre VS THE Jets- Pennington and the boys put it on them hard- 30 or 40 to 0. I just remember it was bad. I think a crucial game for the Jets this season will be Nov 23 vs the Titans @TN. Both of these teams will be fighting for a wildcard. The Jets have always had the Titans number. Last yr the Titans won the game 10-6 or something like that but the Jets totally outplayed them.

Absolutely skip, our return game wasn't even firing on all cylinders last season as Pro Bowl returner Justin Miller was out. That will be a big game Skip, fully expect to challenge for the wild card this season. I'm a massive fan of Pennington but if he go's to the Dolphins (Some talk of them making contact with him) then i will hate him like you would expect a Jets fan to hate any Dolphins player.
