So what does this mean for the NFC East? Is Farve the piece Mangini needs to return the Jets to the playoffs? Maybe. Farve is definitly on the decline, but he is still an above average QB, and don't underestimate his field presence. This will at least for a season get them away from the failure that is Chad Pennington.
The big question to be answered though is can Farve make the necessary adjustments at this stage of his career he needs to? He can no longer live by the long ball, nor force a pass into tight coverege the way he used to. A more conservative approach is needed to manage field position and clock, the recievers have the talent to make big plays. In short, don't force it Farve. Prediction is 10-6 as a wild card. The Jets have a very farorable schedule, but this move alone will not surpass New England for the division. But then again, anything can happen in the playoffs.
Farve to the Jets. What doe it mean for the East?
