come on, really? he is not being traded to the bucs. nfl network is reporting he is going to new york for a fourth that could go up to a first depending on his performance. the kicker? a clause that gives the pack three first rounders from the jets were they to trade him to the vikes. i try to to stay out of the pack hating, and i didn't even really want him to come here, but how f*#*ing stupid is that? you guys really showed your a classy operation..."oh yeah brett we'll do whats best for you and the organization...or maybe we'll just do whats best for the organization and send you to the f$ing jets....you really want to play there right?" i don't think i have ever seen an organization treat a player, much less an icon, like more of a worthless turd. like i said, i didn't even want him in MN, it just chaps my hide how this all played out...and that is all i will say about that.

I guess I don't really see how this doesn't become a Montana-to-Kansas-City type of scenario.

He's officially a Jet. I hope Rodgers tanks and Favre excels. Go Vikes! Come on TJ make me eat crow! Klink, please make me look stupid. It's easy!

Get Pennington!

Not as a starter but as a quaility back-up and mentor. Jetison Ferotte, sorry Gus. Pennington, according to the press here, will be released today. He is a high quality human-being with as small an ego as you will find in the NFL. He, unlike most ex-starting QB's (Favre), would be a willing mentor to TJ. The fans and press love him, but, he doesn't have the arm strength or feet needed in today's NFL. Nonetheless, there are many positives to having him in purple. I know you ALL agree with me.

Could someone tell the PP that in the 21st century news runs 24/7. It is 8:40 AM on Thursday and this old article is still the lead one on their website. Favre was traded nearly 9 hours ago and the website makes no mention of it. The PP new motto should be "2nd place for good reason".

I agree 100%, getting Pennington would be agreat move. Has he recovered from his injuries? Maybe he could start if Jackson doesn't do well. The Vikings window with the ages of some of their current players is about 2-3 years max.

Pioneer Press, breaking news for you, Farve traded to the Jets! It happened last night, guess the telegram hasn't made it all the way over to St. Paul yet.
