Re: Favre to the Jets
 
[quote=12thMan;462853]I think you're right, Hog1. He's saying he's happy to be a Jet, but he came back with the sole intention of playing for the Green Bay Packers. Only after both sides got steeped into this ugly mess that, I believe, Brett had to save face and say I just want to play football. I think if his heart is half-way in it, it will surely manifest in the way he plays. Think about it, he came back because he loved playing football. Now he's learning a new system, there's no fun in that. I wouldn't be suprised if Brett still walked away from the Jets to make this the ultimate reality show.[/quote]

Unfortunately, I think you are correct. He walks away. Even though I think he instigated this whole deal jerkin' the Pack around at the end of the season for the last few years, I do not want a great career to end like this.
AND, if your the Jets, and he does not work out, how the HELL do you sell PSL's at 5k + ???

Are you guys saying he's going to walk away before the season starts??

[quote=jdlea;462840]To close, I have to disagree with your last sentence. I don't have all the faith in the world in Denver, I'm not sold on Cutler and not having Marshall for the first 3 will hurt. As for Houston, I'm also not really that into Matt Schaub, he needs to show a lot this season and I don't like the way they run the football either. That said, they may both have better defenses than the Jets[/quote]I do think the 6th seed in the AFC is pretty wide open. After NE, IND, JAX, SD, and the eventual AFC North winner, there is a pretty big drop off in talented teams. So I don't blame the Jets for trying to seize the opportunity this offseason.

To me, this isn't a particularly horrible trade, but they aren't getting the Favre they think they are.

It would not shock me if the Jets made the playoffs, but they (and Oakland) are trying the same methodology to get there, and obviously one or both are going to fail.

My last point: I understand your lack of faith in Schaub and Cutler, as more than a few careers have started promising like both of theirs, before crashing and burning. But, just looking at those three QBs: Cutler, Schaub, and Favre, I think that I would be less confident in Favre's ability to learn a new system in a month and still be a shell of his former self then I would be in the continued development of two young, promising QBs.

That is a good point and I'll concede I have whatever team Favre plays for colored glasses on when I evaluate Brett. I have faith that he can lead them to the 6th seed, but you never know.

As for Cutler and Schaub, I think Cutler will continue to develop, but I don't trust his receivers. I read a Scouts Inc profile on Marshall saying that good corners usually shut him down and he abuses bad ones, I haven't looked at their schedule, but that concerns me and so does his suspension. The Schaub situation is different, I've never been a huge fan of the guy and I think the Texans gave up too much as far as trade and pay to get him. I also wasn't encouraged by his injury last year. I'm not saying niether will be good, but they still feel like they're another year away to me, I could be wrong though, they could both step it up this season.

Did not want to start a new post for this, but I just wanted to say that Green Bay, made a stupid move not letting Bret play. I root against GB every chance I get. I am pulling for the Favre and the Jets to confirm that you never deny a legend a chance to play, unless you know he cant.

Absolutely. Looks like the ol' man can still sling it.

Holy crap. I had him benched on one of my fantasy teams too, he was supposed to be hurt with an ankle issue. :D


I still started Campbell though. :)

Somebody in one of my leagues dropped L.Coles last week. I had guys on a bye, so I had to pick up Coles to start him. 3 first half touchdowns later... Well let's just say I ended with high points for the week.

Congrats to Favre too. He's my favorite non-Redskin football player of all time. I'm happy for him and the Jets.

Makes our win over Arizona look trivial.
