Favre Says He Will Retire...Again

Well it is another case of deja vu all over again. Favre's agent supposedly asked the Jets for his immediate release and the Jets declined. Sounds familiar does it not? In the end, Favre told the Jets that he plans to retire. Hmm that seems to be quite familiar sounding as well. Well I don't think we will know that Favre will officially retire until his press conference. Oh wait, that doesn't mean anything either. I guess we will have to wait until the start of next season.

But if Favre retires, I feel that this is good for the Jets. I think it is time for the Jets to draft a big time QB and get their franchise quarterback. It is time to move on. Jet fans should be happy. Yes when Favre came the Jets went from 4-12 to 9-7 but still they did not get into the playoffs.

With a new coach should come a new quarterback and maybe we can see another dominate Jets team like back in the old days. No need for the old guy sitting around. The Jets have a nice core of young players on both the defensive and offensive side of the ball and all that of course coupled with a new coach and potentially solid young QB, it should lead to good things with the Jets.

Brett Favre's potentially last game in the NFL was of course with the Jets in Giants Stadium. Favre and the Jets fell 24-17 to Chad Pennington and the Dolphins. Favre in the game through for a 50% completion percentage completing 20 passes on 40 attempts. He threw for 233 yards, 1 TD and 3 interceptions.

Certainly not the ideal final game but oh well.

Goodbye Favre. Enjoy your Wrangler Jeans.
