Disgruntled Jets fan Good Riddance Favre

I was so excited when the Jets  acquired Brett Favre before the season started but his last 5 games have left all of us Jets fans completely sick.

After an 8-3 start they finish the season by losing 4 of the last 5 games, in which Brett completed only about half of his passing attempts and turned the ball over 9 times versus 3 TDs (1 rushing) to bring his season long stat line to 10 fumbles, sacked 30 times, and threw as many INTs as TDs (22).    

And what a fitting end to a terrible finish for the Jets and Favre this past Sunday -  With 17 seconds left in the game and the Jets backed up on their own goal line, needing a TD to tie, Mangini calls for the old 15 lateral Trinity Miracle Favre passes it to Leon Washington only to receive the lateral back from Leon and a confused old Brett forward passes onto the field, earning the Jets a penalty for an illegal forward pass and earning Brett a spot on the bench for the last play of the Jets season.  

I didn’t expect the Jets to score on the last play of the game and, as it turns out, even if the Jets won they wouldn’t have made the playoffs since both the Patriots  and Ravens won but at least I can say, “That’s the last one that Brett will ever leave on the carpet again.” 

Everyone says, “It looks like Brett is always having a lot of fun out there!” To me it looks like he just doesn’t care and Mangini paid for Brett’s carelessness with his job this morning. Was it all Brett’s fault? Probably not, but I’ll be modest and give Favre at least 50% of the blame. 

Growing up our family had a cat that we called Cindy Clawford. We called her that because she had, what looked like, a mole above her top lip like the famous model who she was named after. Cindy was an absolute sweetheart and lived a very long and full life, well into her 20s. Towards the end though she was really falling apart; lost a lot of weight, forgot where her litter bowl was, and would often leave her stools on the living room floor. We loved her so much that we lived with it for awhile but one day during the Holiday season many years ago; my parents were in the process of redecorating the house and my Dad was under a lot of pressure to get the project done before Christmas Day with the family. One night he came across one of Cindy’s steaming presents on the living room carpet. He was so stressed out and angry that he tossed her out into the cold by the scruff of her neck and she crawled under a bush and died. It was the last time that she left one on the carpet ever again. 

As far as Brett’s future with the Jets and the NFL? As far as I’m concerned, I think its past time for Brett to return to his farm and crawl under a bush.

  I think that Farve did do his job for the Jets. Although some would never admit that he did preform decent but the dolphins are a whole new can of whoop a** on defense. So what if they lost to the dolphins! Grats to the dolphins for completely turning thier season around this year and grats to farve for having a better season than most predicted anyways.


To all the bandwagoneers,

It's called karma,and the Jets got a good dose of it. You don't have your fans cheer when the starting quarterback (Pennington) gets hurt on the field. That man had some down times as a Jet, but he never played so poorly as Brett Favre did in those last five games. Pennington's a lot classier as well. He would never run off the field without shaking the opposing team members' hands like Favre did. I saw an interview with Rhodes today and it was very telling just how little he regarded Favre's leadership skills. I once was a Brett fan too, but this year it became apparent that he's nothing more than an egotistical prick who cares only about his precious career records. Pennington deserves MVP honors. It will be at least two more years before the Jets even make it to the playoffs. Maybe next time the Jet's front office will take its time to think things out before casting off loyal leaders!

i love to watch favre, always have, no player loves to play like he does , i know he will be lost when he retires, football is his life, he's given it his all, so let's not run him into the ground, it is time for him to hang it up, he's 39, his body won't take it anymore, so i say to him thanks for all the years you have given to the nfl, go home to mississippi and enjoy

For those who feel the same as this disgruntled jets fan you are crazy...we were not as good a team as we thougth, it started with the coaches and the playcallling, it set the team up to fail and they did just that shottenheimer is awful.  As for favre he has a mediocre year but we already found out the hard way wut penningtons arm looks like in a cold weather climate we are not as good a team without him, and maybe if we ran the ball more with TJ and Leon we can control some of favres mistakes and open up the big play more often.

Better without Mangini?  Yes, especially if the Jets can land Cowher.  Cowher could definitely get the most out of the Jets' special teams and defense. 

Better without Favre?  I don't know.  That'd be great if the Jets could get Cassel but seems unlikely considering the Patriots are already talking about Brady missing the entire '09 season already. 

I think there is some talent in the draft though.  The Ravens got Flacco 18th overall last year and I think the Jets have the 18th pick this year.  Maybe Mark Sanchez from USC falls to them at 18?  Or maybe the Jets trade up to try and snag either Matthew Stafford or Sam Bradford?  I have a feeling that Favre is done and I haven't seen a lot of good things from Kellen Clemens (last year) so maybe the Jets do something bold in the draft this year, like the Giants when they came away with Eli in the '04 draft.

Really, you think you're better off without Favre and Mangini?  I don't know... at least the Jets competed with Mangini.  And Favre (who definitely choked at the end) did better for the Jets than any other QB out there would have done.  You guys hated Pennington and now at him.  Poor Jets are going to have to wait a few years until a drafted QB matures for them.  It's a shame because the team is at a good age to make a run.  If only they had a solid QB.  Is there anyone they could trade for (again)?  I'm trying to think of who might be available.  Matt Cassel?  Ken Dorsey??  :)

HAHAHA!!!  I just updated my avatar.  I can't believe that it took all of about 2 minutes for someone to recognize Jose Offerman in his finest moment!  Well done Gamer1028!
