Can you believe this? First, the owner retains Tennenbaum who had to go when Mangini went. The mediocrity assembled here has come out in the wash and that's on the GM. He has overrated his personnel. Badly. But, for some reason, he gets a pass. Now it's Favre getting unjustified absolution. How blatant must his performances be before they see the man is done? Hopefully, this is just a courtesy being extended to a future HOF'er. If it is, kudos to Johnson.

Sorry Woody I can't agree with you.He will be forty next year. His best days are behind him. Try to draft a stud QB and give him the ball. Its worked for a couple of teams this year. See if Favre is willing to be a back up.If not than move on. Jet fans do not deserve to go through another meaningless season.

Wow- who the hell is Kerry Rhodes and what the hell has he done compared with the ALL TIME LEADER in everything passing. Rhodes should shut up till he performs like a hall of famer.

it doesnt matter what he does in the off season. He is old and washed up. 8-3 in the first half and then his age came into play. He folded and realize that he is not the legend he use to be. Bring back Joe Namath.

Favre is not a good mentor, just look at him when he was with GB. He told reporters it is nt his job to teach but to play!

Boland:
In a season filled with so much promise we have come full circle.
The owner saying that Farve was a " positive net, net for the franchise" I'm sure he was thinking of a positive net, net income.

That alone won't save Farve. He's just an old man who has run out of gas.

Also, remember that the did a lot of play calling on the field against Mangini's wishes, and then became indignant when Mangini tried to tell him something.

how dare Mangini! Doesn't know who the star is aroung here.

No, I don't blame Mangini for the downfall, after all it was Farve in the field, and he can't throw as accurately as the old Farve could.

Reading this story I see that management still has stars in their eyes and hope that Farve can be revived. He can't.

Farve should have retired last season before becoming a Jet but his enlarged ego got in the way.

The 8-3 record. Just look at the plays and how many times the defence had to come to the rescue.

BRETT FARVE SHOULD RETIRE.

NOW.

They need to drat a qb. Look at Atlanta
and Baltmore. They did it with a rookie qb
and coach. Can they Jets do it? Farve's got to go.
He showed that in the Seattle game. His weather and he could not get the job done!

i think that the whole team is the
blame becuz they got him farve on the latter part of the offseason and
expect him to be like the miracle boy
mr broadway, and then learn all those
offensive plays in 2 months????

Let Brett Ratliff Run the damn offense! We've already seen him do well in pre-season and he spent all season watching what an NFL QB should and should not do!!! If you start Kellen over Ratliff, then I'll follow Mangenius and root
for his new team!!!

MANGINI NEEDED TO GO. He had showed no emotion until the last game. FARVE NEEDS TO-The experiment is OVER! TENNENBAUM MUST GO-He has no clue to what or who maybe the BEST Personnel for this club. He comes across as clueless as Mangini did as head coach. I think that Mangini is and will be an excellent assistant but that is as far as he will be. He is not a leader and Herm was. Not a leader but an assistant. Maybe Tennenbaum is the same, but for sure he is not any type of leader

All of the "experts" talking about Favre's interceptions need to get a clue. If you've watched him other years - you would know he's been playing with a bad arm since game 5. He's got more interceptions than anyone in history because he's thrown a lot more passes than anyone in history. You need to look at # of interceptions per 100 passes thrown. This data is a year old - but Favre is in the same general area as Elway, Marino & Aikmann. It is really tiring seeing uninformed people post about Favre's interception record. It is a product of the length of his career and the dramatic expansion of the passing game in the modern era. He 'broke' the record held by George Blanda. However, Blanda set the record with about half as many attempts. When you look at INTs per 100 attempts, Favre is at 3.31 vs. Blanda's 6.91. HUGE difference.
Where do some of the other greats stack up? Unitas 4.88, Tarkenton 4.11, Namath 5.85, Bradshaw 5.38, Marino 3.02, Elway 3.12 and Aikman 2.99.
A Green Bay Packer beat writer wrote a good column about it earlier this season. http://www.packersnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/arti ...
