    Man, it will be hard to watch Brett play for anyone else but Green Bay. I know in sports you aren't supposed to have loyalty, it's all about the green.

    But still, Green Bay. The only team that is owned by it's fans. I think that's cool. I know I wouldn't sit my bum outside in sub-zero temps to watch a football game, fan that I am. But those Packer fans, geez, you have to kill someone to get a ticket to a game! My brother has been a Packer fan since the days of Bart Starr, and his wife bought him a share in the team for his birthday one year. So even though I'm a Colts fan, I like the Pack too.


    Anyhoo,,,,,,I bet the Jets fans are glad to have Brett! I hope he doesn't burn out, then fade away!

    Their line is better, besides he spent 10 years of his career in Green Bay with no line. Just another day at the office for him.

    Green Bay isn't going to have the success they had when they had Brett Favre. ;)

    If Fav're gets excited about his role in NY and he gets the help he needs, the Jets could make the Patriots squirm.

    Brett Favre will improve the Jets' 4-12 record from last year but don't get giddy and look for a playoff birth.

    One thing you have to realize is the Jets don't have near the O-line Favre had in Green Bay during most of his career. Take last season in Green Bay for example. They had the second best offense in the league and only allowed Favre to be sacked 15 times (second fewest in the league). Compare that to the line he's going to in NY where they allowed 53 sacks.

    Favre is going to be under pressure a lot this year with not near the talent of WRs he had but if anyone can deal with it it's him. Unfortunately he can do only so much. The Jets have rebuilt their line but it's nowhere near the one Favre came from in CheeseLand.
