Please Retire Already!!!


Brett… Please… Retire already… I was sick of watching this crap in Green Bay, and I’m even more sick of it now. Look, you’re a good guy who should ride off into the sunset with some semblance of a legacy. Please don’t allow this to turn ugly, which it will if you return for another season. This team is built for running the ball and playing defense. They now have a coach who was raised in that philosophy. If there is any chance of you playing again for gang green it will have to be as a game manager. If this continues to be something you are unwilling to do, then hang them up and let us move on.

The Jets are so close we can smell it. Maybe getting rid of Pennington will allow this team to move towards the future, but the chance that Favre comes back and leads this team as a gunslinger is slim to none.

Let’s be honest. The only reason Woody Johnson wants Favre back on the team is because his Jersey was the #1 seller in the league this past year and he is hoping 1 more year won’t make him look stupid for forcing Tannenbaum’s hand on this.

The reality is the Jets will need to get lucky and develop 1 of the 3 on the squad now… that or draft someone who can make an instant impact. We’re begging you Brett. Leave. We know you want to play for the Vikings, so it’s on you to walk into Woody’s office and make him a deal.

From a team aspect, I’m hoping Rex takes the bull by the horns and gets this team motivated. He needs to continue to build from the inside out, which I believe he will. This offseason should be interesting… let the games begin…

  • HUH?

    Make Woody a deal.  What the ach eee double L are you talking about?  Woody owns Favre and wants him back, and isn’t going to trade him to MN because of the poison pill that the Packers put in the trade that would cost NY three #1′s.  Not to mention Favre lit up the Super Bowl bound Cardinals for 6 TD’s and wins in NE and TN, no wonder Woody still wants him.

    Yeah, 6 TD’s in that game… 4 of which happened when a defender fell down… 22 Picks to lead the league, and about another half dozen dropped picks… 3 of which happened against St. Louis. The only consistent games the Jets had this year were games in which Thomas Jones carried the ball 25+ times… Coincidence? The reason Woody wants him back is Jersey sales & to try to make this move not look like a complete waste.
    And no Shiz about the draft picks… I didn’t mean a trade of course. He needs to “retire” & request his release from his contract. He would then be able to come back into the league to whoever he wants as long as the NFL doesn’t step in. We’ve seen it before…i.e… Parcells.
    Of course this will never happen, because Woody and Tannenbaum won’t admit how terrible this move really was. The Jets won 9 games despite Favre’s terrible play. It wasn’t just the 22 picks, it was how undisciplined they really were. He never settled for the FG, or through the ball away on their own end of the field and forced the passing game upon a team that was built to run the ball. Favre has done this for the last 10 years. He’s been the worst playoff QB in recent memory and the reports out of GB was that he was selfish and only cared about being the center of attention. More reports like that out of his one year in NY… weird. He’s the most overrated QB in the league, and needs to leave before damaging his legacy even more.

    I’m pretty sure Kellen Clemens could’ve led the league in INT’s and helped the Jets miss the playoffs just as well as Favre, only he probably would’ve had a better relationship with the rest of the guys. It’s amazing the love affair that all the NFL fans have with Favre because he wears Wranglers and plays like a kid.

    The truth of the matter is if you take away the “Favre” name and just looked at his play he would’ve already been run out of town. Get a clue. Sal Paolantonio seems to agree, before his disaster run with the Jets…

    OK smart guy… T. Jackson threw for 4 TD’s against the Cardinals as well… Guess he’s headed to Canton too…

    The wins against NE & TN were on Thomas Jones & the O-lines shoulders… watch the tape.

    No kidding about the draft picks… by make a deal, I meant tell Woody you don’t want to play for the Jets which was said all last year’s offseason.

    “Retire” and ask for a release from the contract. Then at the last minute ask for re-instatement and go play for the Vikes… We’ve seen it before… i.e. Parcells…

    If Favre was so great, why did the Packers deal him? Was it because they thought he couldn’t play or they were just sick of his crap? Think about it.
