first hypothesized on this very blog on July 9th, Brett Favre is a member of the New York Jets. The saga is over, although the coverage certainly is not. In fact, just writing this post is making my stomach turn. As you've noticed, I've tried to stay out of this whole Favre drama.
Anyway, the real question is how much better does this make the Jets? It definitely makes them more relevant, that can't be argued. But I'm not sure if, with Favre, they're even a playoff team. They'll probably be picked to finish second in the AFC East and there are still many teams ahead of them. (See: Jaguars, Colts, Steelers, Chargers, Browns, Titans)
All of this, of course, is contingent on Brett even playing for the Jets. The way things have been going, I wouldn't be shocked if he retired again.
