Yea, it's really stupid. I felt the same way when they were talking non-stop about bonds last year.

I didn't really mind that with Bonds because baseball is the only sport I truly care about.

Why would someone of his elderly state come back to the NFL!?!?!? I mean if he gets hit by a big guy like Urlacher, he could die!!

I don't know if Favre makes the Jets a playoff team. We've seen countless teams spend, spend, spend, then spend some more and go nowhere - in fact, it happens more often then not. Their defense is still shaky, their receivers are questionable, and Jones has a bit to prove at RB.

Will Favre make the Jets more exciting to watch? Definitely. Will he make them great? No.

I tend to agree with you. 9-7 at best.

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Brett Favre got a standing ovation from an overflow crowd that went to great lengths to get a good look at the New York Jets' newest quarterback Saturday. He was cheered again when he completed his first pass of practice.

Those delirious fans won't have to wait long to see him in action against another team.

Jets coach Eric Mangini said Favre will start next Saturday against the Redskins in the team's preseason home opener. If Favre's first practice was any indication, get ready for a frenzied atmosphere for a largely meaningless game.

At a facility accustomed to drawing less than 1,500 fans for practice, more than 7,000 packed the club's venue in Long Island to catch a glimpse of the iconic QB in his first appearance on a field with New York.

Favre was acquired from Green Bay late Wednesday night, sending a jolt through the franchise and the rest of the NFL.

Favre sounded ready to move past the hype and get back to work on the field.

"The pressure is just building," he said Friday. "The attention I've gotten since I've been here has been overwhelming. The bottom line, as we all know, is to win games. That's what I'm here to do."

The Jets sent a conditional draft pick to the Packers for Favre, who joined his new team on the sidelines during a 24-20 preseason-opening victory at Cleveland on Thursday night.

"Time will tell, but I don't want to say be patient," Favre said during a City Hall news conference with the mayor. "I have to get a lot done in a short amount of time. They wouldn't have signed me if they didn't think I could do that."

Favre closed a summer of discontent and opened a new chapter in his storied career by joining the Jets, who outbid the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's also coming off one of his most productive seasons, passing for 4,155 yards, his most since 1998, with 28 TDs and 15 interceptions.

If he doesnt win a championship this year (which he wont) in my mind he wont have the same legacy as he once did. He betrayed his loyal team to go with someone else.

Packers have a better chance with favre than the jest anyway.

Well he's kind of had it in me ever since i accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly" and replace "dog" with "son".

Farve will still have the same legacy, he is a certified Hofer n question about it. Montana went to another team, and his legacy remained intact. This trade gves the Jets some respectability, they know they won't be winning any championships, so all that talk about a chip is a waste of time. This trade helps them with developing their young QB for Farve's brief stay with the Jets, and hopefully the kid will learn something. NY is excited since the Giants won their superbowl, and now they can add more excitement in NY with the addition of Farve, they just need to get what they can as far as knowledge is concerned and try their best.

Today I heard a good saying about Favre on the radio, "You can take him out of the country, but you can never take the country out of him".
