Brett Favre Traded to the New York Jets

I'm not a huge football fan. I know the teams. And if a player has been around for a long time, I know about them too.

Brett Favre is one of those players I know about. It's been interesting reading what has been going on between Favre and the Packers.

First he's retired. Then he's not. Then he wants to be released from the Packers. I got the impression from reading some of the news reports that things probably got kind of heated a time or two between Favre and the franchise.

Despite that, the New York Jets actively persued getting Favre for this upcoming season. And since they got him, and I'm a New Yorker, I figured I'd voice my opinion here.

Personally, I'm not sure I'd want him on my team. After what went on with the Packers, can the Jets really depend upon him not pulling the same nonsense?

He's 38. Can he really hold his own on the football field? Obviously the Jets think so.
