Brett wouldn't cut it in NY. He wants NO part of playing the Pats and Tom Brady twice a year.

the return would be a likely 1st round draft pick. With the Jets not exactly a lock for the playoffs, the end result could be dangerous, especially if Favre gets hurt

The Jets need Farve to see those pricey PSL's :$20,000 and up.

The Giants are coming off a Super Bowl championship, the Jets need some " Brett juice" to see the PSLs.

This would be the biggest scam by the Jets if they were to land him...They would be using this as a ploy to get the Season Ticket Holders to pony up the PSL fees...

I think Favre is/was a great player but he wouldn't do anything for the Jets except get them the guy they missed taking 17 years ago.

the jets are the example of mediocrity. they will forever be a middle of the road team. with all the moves they made this off-season, brett favre would make everything work. this team is currently built for the run with no passing threat at all; teams do not fear chad pennington. favre would give them a fighting chance at a wild card spot and maybe they could find the momentum as the giants did last season and put together a run. super bowl, not very likely but a respectable season is a lot more likely with favre then pennington

The Jets QBs are horrible. What logical Jets fan would not want to at least take a chance with Brett Favre? And by the way, there's no chance any team is giving up a 1st rounder for Brett Favre when he's can't even guarantee more than one season. The Jets would give up a 3rd rounder at best.

favre is a selfish egomaniac. he needs to just go away. contrary to he and his wife's thinking, the nfl will survive without them. kudos to ted thompson for not succumbing to lord favre.

Favre should be embarrassed by his childish behavior.

I'll take crybaby Favre over Pennington. with all the moves the Jets made, it would be stupid not to get him if given the chance. he can make the Jets one of the best teams in the AFC instantly!

Favre would bring instant credibility to the Jets as well as open up the running game. No team would dare line up 8 men in the box to stop the run they way they have for the last few years; they would be forced to fear the pass. Getting Favre is a no brainer, if he WANTS to play here.

The Jets are a joke and this is a Favre, I mean a farce. Even if he comes to the Jets, he'll blow his knee out in the first half of the season opener. Why? Because that's the Jets luck...second rate organization, white trash fans and losers from A to Z.

I vote a resounding NO! to Favre as a Jet, but here's some food for thought:

BRETT FAVRE CAREER STATS AT GIANTS STADIUM:

5 GP (3-2)
107 for 178 (60.1%)
8 TD
5 INT
88.8 rating

He has one start all-time at the Meadowlands against Jets. That was the 42-17 game in Week 17 back in 2002 when the Jets clinched the AFC East. Pretty impressive numbers (the two losses were total stinkers for him).

I just don't think it's wise to bring in a guy who will cost a lot in draft picks and greenbacks that has never even seen the cover of your playbook. I think it limits what the team can do for too much of the season and will allow opposing teams to build more effective defensive gameplans. As a result turnovers will increase and the TOP will go down, tiring out the defense and creating more come-from-behind situations late in games and/or blown leads. For a buy like Mangini it just seems out of character.

But on the other hand maybe Mangini doesn't think Clemens is ready to start and doesn't believe Chad can get the 10 wins it will take to make the playoffs in the AFC. You can dump him and his salary to a team like Kansas City and take a chance on an aging legend leading you past the Pats and into SB43.

I say fat chance, but stranger things have happened.

Do the Jets have the cap room to take on Favre? It's going to have to be very enticing for him to choose to go there. Tampa makes more sense because they can deal Garcia and get equal value back (given the sitch) plus Dallas is clamoring for Chris Simms. Perhaps the Jets would like Brian Griese --just kidding.

The Jets are built to run, Farve will help the running game immensely as the threat of the deep ball always does. The playbook will become the wideouts go long and if the defense brings 8 in the box, Farve will let it fly.

I respect Brett, but don't want him. I understand Chad's arm is not the strongest, but he IS accurate. I don't believe that Clemens had a good year, BY GOD Brady would of been on his butt on every play if he had an offensive line like the Jets did last year. I say keep what we have, Start Chad and let Clemens learn some more. If Chad falters put in Clemens. Then draft a QB next year or trade next year for a young guy not a 39 y/o man. Big Mistake if we go for Brett
