Another huge ego who just cannot let go. Favre was a great QB and humanitarian, but this crap is over the top.

Being a resident, and life long Packer fan, I invite all of you to welcome the gem of the NFL to your city, and team. Brett is a find, a wonderment, and a treasure that the management of Green Bay had no clue of, through their stubborness, and ignorance. I am now a full fledged Jets fan, as well as a weathered and disgruntled Packers fan. See you in the playoffs..........

After next season when he retires again.
He will have the job of being Jay Leno's sidekick.
Jay will take Jimmie Kimmel's spot and will have the man show again. Bring back the trampoline scene.

I knew they would never trade him to an NFC team, especially a cental div. team, and especially the Bears. Phweeew! Close one!

A couple things I'd like to say on the matter of Brett Favre (by the way, Brett has two t's and Favre is not spelled like you say it) going to the Jets. First, Brett's been unhappy ever since Ted Thompson has taken over - equally or lesser so - Mike McCarthy too. I think he respected Ron Wolfe, and we all know he loved Holmgren. Witness his reluctentcy to comeback for the last two years (he pretty much kept the team in limbo until a couple weeks before the start of preseason last year). Secondly, Brett's one of the very few players in the league nowadays that could've easilly played for Lombardi - Vince would've loved this boy. He's a throwback, pure and simple - a guy who places a high regard on his team loyalty. He was never about records or money - on the contrary - the boy only wanted to play and win. When it came time to make a decision at the end of last season, he looked at the Packers for some help in making that decision - freshly off a resounding pummeling from the Giants in the NFC title game, the team and the fans were questioning his resolve and love of the game - he even questioned himself. He never saw the team in the same light again after that. As was said in the Godfather - "That is that - it's over." Good luck Brett - godspeed and remember, they're last in the league in passing offense - no more big Wisconsin guys to protect your backside - wear your head on a swivel and keep both hands on the ball.

As a geezer who was born the same year as Lambeau Field and schooled in the art of Packer sportsmanship, I would first like to bid a fond farewell to Brett Favre, a Packer in the truest sense. I would also like to bid farewell to ted thompson, mark murphy and mike mccarthy: you three are most assuredly NOT Packers. It is NEVER going to be thompson or murphy or mccarthy field and even if these three stooges won the next ten Super Bowls in a row you will always be remembered, first and foremost, as the trio of egomaniacs who placed themselves above my beloved Packers. Being a Packer is not the same as working for the Green Bay Packers. You want to be a Packer? You have to earn it.

High drama in packer land thats for sure, I dont think that i would what Brett as an enemy, he is a good quarterback, and does command respect, lets just see how it works out, Brett does well he will be a hero, packers do well the three stooges will be the hero. can one man make the show. it will sell tickets.

Way to go Jets! This team has a talent for signing washed up old Quarterbacks. Way to build for the future by reaching into the past! Maybe Buffalo will give us some competition this year in the East?
Be sure to get those number 4 shirts because that is about how many wins old man Farve will bring.

Congradulations to the Jets and their fans. This was the icing on the cake as to what was a stellar off season in terms of making moves to elavate the franchise into contention. Considering the previous signing of veteran talent, this was a no brainer.
Now, turn him loose on the Pats and see what happens. Reguardless of the result, it was the kind of move that all teams should make under similar circumstance.
Applaud the men in green.

Wow, the J-E-T-S may go 8-8 this year with Favre if he plays the whole year. It is a great trade for the Jets only giving up a possible 4th round pick, so they win on this and they will get headlines over the SB Champ Giants in Newsday & the Post. Otherwise, they will need a new QB half way through the season when Favre retires after cracking from the pressure of the NY fans and media (he thought GB was tough?). He will still be 2nd fiddle to Brady and the Pats in their own division and 3rd fiddle (QB wise) in the AFC (behind Brady & Manning). If he plays like last year, the Jets will be contenders, but will still miss the playoffs. If he plays like the couple of seasons before last year, he'll quit, I mean retire by the 10th week, leaving the Jets high and dry and without a viable starting QB.
