As a longtime Jets fan, I wanted to start a thread about the team and for the fans (as opposed to that thread used mainly to complain about Brett Favre). And to start things off...

I think that the Jets got their man in Rex Ryan. Not only a man capable of being a coach, but one whom the players respect and are willing to play for. The fact that he has an historic connection to the team through his father is a plus.

I'd also like to comment that I hope the Favre experiment is over and done with. I didn't mind his rep as a "gunslinger," but it's time for him to announce his retirement, and this time, stay retired.

You're not serious, I hope. That makes him sound like he just barely scraped through his rookie season.

At the moment, who might possibly be the Jets' quarterback next season isn't relevant; it could be anyone. Perhaps we'll even get lucky and actually draft someone. You won't hear me complaining if there really is a rookie at quarterback next year. All I want the team to do is progress rather than regress; going from 4-12 to 9-7 was, at the very least, heartening.

how hard do you think it will be for favre to win two more games and win their division now that he is acclimated?

Question Did Favre make the Jets a better running team?

Thats what Chris Carter said. Do you agree?

No. All the money they threw at that O-line made the Jets a better running team.

Mostly, what Favre accomplished for the Jets didn't show up on any stat sheets. He gave them some confidence. And there's every possibility that a young (possibly brash), talented quarterback like Mark Sanchez could do the same thing. It's one thing to be a quarterback, and something else again to be a team leader; lots of clubs around the NFL know all about that distinction!

OK, the '09 campaign is underway, Favre is just a memory, and Mark Sanchez got our season off to a wonderful start. Let's pick up from here, shall we?

Wait until Shonn Greene gets healthy then you're really going to have a running game. This guy can run over you or away from you. Being a Hawkeye fan I guarentee you he's a heck of a draft pick and will be paying dividends soon. I think they've got him listed as probable for this weeks game with that rib injury.
