Our Long National Nightmare Is Over … I Think
The arm of the Jets starting quarterback just aged 30 years. The body attached to it is different as well. Brett Favre has been traded to the Jets and not a minute too soon.
Jay Glazer reports that the Packers will receive a fourth-round pick but that could increase in value depending how the Jets do and how many snaps Favre takes this season. Should the Jets reach the Super Bowl and Farve reach a certain percentage of snaps, the pick could become a first-rounder.
Both teams released statements confirming the trade and licking his narcissistic ass. Finally we can hear the end of this absurd saga and focus on how much longer we have to go before an NFL player gets arrested. The college kids can’t keep this up much longer.
Mike Florio over at Pro Football Talk reports that the trade also has terms preventing the Jets from trading Favre to a NFC Central team. However there’s no reason the Jets couldn’t trade him elsewhere if they chose to do so. For the love of everything that’s holy, let’s hope Woody keeps Favre in the swampland he loves so much.
There is some collateral damage as a result of this bizarre couple of weeks and the trade. Chad Pennington and his eight year-old arm could be a casualty as the Jets need to make cap room to sign Favre. Who even knows the mental state of Aaron Rogers? Favre may be gone but the Green Bay fans let him know how they feel and the team has fucked with his emotions. The Packers organization’s rep has taken a hit over the wishy-washy, indecisive, bitch way they handled this drama. Let’s see how he deals with the New York press when they’re constantly on his ass after his first six interception game.
