J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets. It shouldn’t be long before this chant becomes very familiar for Brett Favre. His ongoing drama with the Green Bay Packers officially ended last night when the un-retired QB was traded to the New York Jets for a 4th round draft pick. Favre should provide the Jets with much need upgrade at the QB position. The Green Bay Packers however, will have to hope that their man Aaron Rodgers steps up, otherwise this trade will go down as the worst Packers move ever.
The trade ended weeks of controversy as the Packers and Favre continued to butt heads on the QB’s future and relationship with the Packers. After reporting to Camp on Tuesday, Favre met with head coach McCarthy. The two were unable to find any common ground as Favre admitted to McCarthy that it would be tough to play in Green Bay after all that was said about him. That conversation sealed Brett’s fate in Green Bay as coach McCarthy concluded that Brett wasn’t in the right state of mind to lead the Packers.
Only time will tell who will truly benefit from this ordeal. New York Jets fans are certainly optimistic. One thing is certain: New York Jets tickets are suddenly a hot item!
