Favre to Jets?

My moratorium against Favre posts didn't even last a full 24 hours, but I thought this was worth passing along. The Green Bay Press Gazette is reporting trade talks are heating up between the Packers and the Jets, so much so that Favre has cancelled his flight to Green Bay. According to, the Press Gazette even had the headline "It's Over: Favre Traded to Jets" on their webpage.

This comes after earlier reports today that had the Packers in talks with both the Vikings and the Bears for Favre's services. Yeah, the Packers don't want Favre back in the Green and Gold, but I've always wondering that if we really think he's lost his game, why not dump him on someone else in our division. Sure we don't want Favre to beat the Packers, but if he's no good, what's the problem with trading him?

There has to be something else going on here. You don't fly down to Mississippi to offer him $20 million if there wasn't. Either there is something else going on, or the Packers are that upset about Favre's flip-flopping back in April.

All I know is that I can't wait to see an "It's Over" headline for real.

Update: Favre says the $20 million offer "may be best". If he does take the offer, than I think that proves that this whole thing was drum up by his agent James Cook to get some more cash. I'm not joking, maybe that's whats going on here. Why Favre is going along with it, I wouldn't know, but I still say he doesn't play in the NFL this year.
