There is much to ignore in all of the analysis of the Brett Favre-to-the-Jets trade. So we’ll ignore most of it.
But this caught my interest. In a panel discussion on ESPN last night, all four ESPN NFL analysts said that the Jets were more likely than the Packers to reach the playoffs this year. The panelists were: Michael Irvin, Tom Jackson, Cris Carter and Emmit Smith.
I think they’re crazy. Let’s mark this prediction and return to it in January 2009.
Also, a bit of trivia: Favre will not only be reunited in New York with former Packer tight end Bubba Franks. He will also get to throw to former Packer draftee David Clowney. Clowney, picked in the 5th round last year, played in the Jets game last night against Cleveland. He caught 4 passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns.
Got to love the preseason.
