Let’s go back to 2008. The Jets go out and bring in Brett Favre. They got rid of the quarterback that leads everyone in the history of the sport in completion percentage, Chad Pennington. Whether he had a great arm or not, he led the sport’s history, in completing passes, a pretty important thing for a quarterback, wouldn’t you say? And what did we get?
A guy who was old, took two many chances with his throws, and the only reason he came to the Jets was to use them to get back at the Green Bay Packers. That is the only explanation for why he only played for one season. He knew he couldn’t get right to the Vikings, so he came to the Jets for one year to free himself up to head to Minnesota.
The Jets were used, for Woody Johnson’s need for headlines. Right after our hometown co-habitants won the Super Bowl.
