Brett will be fine. What people forget is he has only been in the jets system for a few months. Many of the int's were clearly a result of not being on the same page with the receivers. If you look around the league, J. Cultler and P Manning are right behind Favre with Int's, and they have been with their team a lot longer. When you dont' have a balanced attack, it happens. It really has seemed that Shotty just decided to use the last 3 games to get everyone on the same page, almost like what you would do in training camp or in preseason.

yes, they should have won the raiders game. If cotchery doesn't fall down in the end zone or smith doesn't fall down in Ot, they win.

Erik, Nice report card. Everybody is forgetting the Jets habe been fooled twice on a fake punt. If it weren't for a holding penalty the Bills hit it also. Westhoff needs to clean that up.

Jets underachieved against both Raiders and Chiefs. Coaches knew it and Mangini 'reminded' his players that no one's job is safe. Seems like the team got the message - it was about time said, and I hope the players keep that in mind and play to their capabilities the rest of the way. Favre will always be Favre, but he will be good much more often than bad, and even when he's had a bad day can still pull you out a win.

It's amazing how Brett Favre is doing in the green and white of the Jets.
He gives some credit to the new Hybrid motorcycle he bought before joining the team.

Can we get a little more fidelity in the grades?
Maybe break down the O into:
QB
RBs
OL
WR
TE
D into
DL
LB
Secondary
Is this done to shield Brett Favre from the likely C or lower he would get? C'mon NY media tell the truth, he's a big boy.

I'm a long time Brett Favre and Packers fan. You NY fans don't know what a competitor you really have. Ever since he has played with the Jets, I've followed all their games and newspaper articles, blogs, etc. I can say that New York sports fans some of the most fair weather harsh fans out there. When they play well, the fans support them. When a player has an off day, out come the soul-crushing boos. There is never any real support for the players. Who the hell would really want to play in NY with the harsh media and even harsher bunch of know nothing so-called "fans."

I'm sure Brett wishes he could still have the backing, loyalty and real support of Packers fans.

New Yorkers, wake the heck up and realize how lucky you are to have Brett Favre playing for you. A year ago today, the Jets were 1-7. Today, they are tied for 1st place in the AFC East and I still seem to read way too criticism of Favre. As you can see on the comments here, there's an even a blog called "Brett Favre Blows." What a bunch of putzes.
