One More Chance For Brett and Jets

So it comes down to this, Brett Favre vs Chad Pennington in the final week of the season for a shot at going to the playoffs. Everything is on the line today at Giants Stadium. Eric Mangini's tenure as Jets head coach, Favre's career, the Jets credibility, and Pennington's status. A lot to play for today, it'll be interesting who comes out on top.

Favre has met expectations, he turned the franchise around from 4-12 last season to 9-6 so far this season. How many would've thought he would've gone this far? Not many. The problem is that the Jets started out 8-3 and beat both New England and Tennesse on the road and people were already thinking Super Bowl. Are you serious? I mean really, it's a nice thought but everyone knows you have to play out the season and make it to the playoffs first before you even think that kind of stuff. This is why people get on Jets fans because they jump the gun when they really jump the shark. If you don't know the expression "jumping the shark", google it, then you'll get it.

Pennington comes back to the place where he called home for most of the career. He led the Jets to the playoffs 3 times and plans on doing the same for the Miami Dolphins. How ironic is it that he faces the man he was replaced by and can end his "storybook" season? I hope he does. All this nonsense about this comeback and how the Jets were going to be so much better. All baloney. Don't get me wrong, I'm a casual football fan, so it's not like I have a hate for the Jets, I just don't like for people to brag about their teams when they haven't proved anything. Win today, then talk, then win, then talk, then let's see how the season ends for Brett and the Jets.

I'm going with Chad and the Fins today. Mangini and Favre are as good as done. Who cares if Favre comes back next season, you won't make a difference. If you're not sure of that just see Roger Clemens.
