Are things coming full circle for Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre? It appears so with the report on ESPN.com from Chris Mortensen that the New York Jets have received permission to talk to Favre. So I say this:
Trade Favre. To the Jets.
It works out perfectly. The Jets need a quarterback. Chad Pennington and Kellen Clemens have not been getting the job done. Clemens has shown flashes of brilliance, but he is not ready to take over an NFL team now. Maybe in a few years. After Favre retires. New York is not an NFC team. They have the talent to win. They also have to the pieces to fail miserably and expose Favre as being extremely selfish. I have no idea what the Jets have to offer as compensation and what not, but I say go for it. Ted Thompson can finally move on to his true love, Aaron Rodgers, and Rodgers can finally PLAY. It makes the team younger and gives the team a bigger window of opportunity.
I feel like the Jets are definitely the right fit for Favre. He isn’t going to a team where there are 50,484,382 other quarterbacks, otherwise known as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Plus, he will still be wearing green. For those idiots who don’t know, Favre was supposed to be a Jet, but the Atlanta Falcons intervened.
But yeah, Favre as a Jet. It just feels right to me.
