Brett the Jet

So much for Tampa- Brett Favre has been traded to the Jets. While Brett is in no way whatsoever a "New York guy," he'll still be both wearing green and playing in cold weather, so it shouldn't be that much of an adjustment- plus, he'll be able to come over to Peter King's house for barbeques. However, there's no New York Post in Wisconsin.

It never would have been right for Favre to come to the Vikings. So we'll try our luck with Tarvaris, and if that doesn't work out, we'll welcome Donovan McNabb in '09. Chad Pennington to the Vikings? Please. No.

I like Isaac Spaceman's take on Jeff Garcia:

He played well in an impossible situation in San Francisco -- following two Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks -- but never got any respect, getting shitcanned for a succession of truly awful QBs. He stepped into a tough situation in Philadelphia -- replacing an injured franchise player midway through the year -- and did nothing but save the season. He saved Jon Gruden's job in Tampa Bay with his Pro Bowl play and got rewarded with a training-camp attempt to acquire one of the most ill-fitting QBs imaginable for Tampa Bay's playbook. He even married a Playboy centerfold and still has to hear people say he's gay. That dude gets no respect.
Garcia, though, at least had the good sense to get out of Philly before everyone turned on him. Because he only stayed one year, everyone in town will love him forever.
