I still think Brett has the desire to play and is happy playing! He has had many tough seasons in Green Bay as well, it does take time to mesh with your team mates and learn the system. If you noticed during the game, he was on the sidelines learning, looking at plays, this tells me he wants to mesh with this new team, he is working really hard. Now someone that didnt give a crap wouldnt be doing those things.
I thought he made alot of great throws last night, but he made some bad ones as well, but that is Brett Favre in a nutshell trying to make something happen, he has done this in Green Bay many times to. He has had a lot of poor seasons in Green Bay as well it happens.
This team didnt loose entirely because of Brett Favre last night, the Jets defense wasnt good in the 2nd and 3rd quarters, they got to Phillips maybe twice last night. It looked like some of Brett's throws were off because yes he didnt know the system well enough yet, and maybe it was the recievers as well not making plays. I did see a QB sneak from Brett that he hadnt done in so long, that was fun to see. Brett still has it IMO, it just will take sometime to mesh with his new team. Also they said that he is trying to get his new team excited, didnt you see him after the special teams ran in for a touchdown and Brett was out on the field patting everyone as they came off. This isnt someone that dont want to play for the Jets, this is someone that is still a little boy at heart and still wants to win and has the ability to still win.
Again it takes more then one person to win games, I have said this many times as well. But the sad part is they always put the full blame on the QB and if thats true then say it. But last night this team wasnt all together, they still have tons of work to do. I do believe down the road they will get better, I just hope its not he last game of the season. But if it is then so be it, Brett is where he wants to be and that is playing football. I still believe in this man because he is and always will be a great player. You cannot expect him to play for a team for three weeks and know everything, you do also have to have that chemistry between receivers and QB's this takes time, and I am sure when Brett went to the Jets he knew that, after all hes been playing for along time.
Also with Brett taking home the playbook and studying every night this also tells me hes still excited and wants to learn. To say that Favre doesnt have the talent anymore, that is totally false, he still has the talent to win games he just needs others to step up around him to make this happen. Just because one person is talented on a team, you cannot win games like this.
I for one am glad Brett came out of retirement, now would I rather see him in Green Bay? YES!! He knows the system, the players and if he were playing for Green Bay he would have had a great year, he could have relaxed a bit. But we all know the Packers moved on and Brett wanted to play, so now hes in New York studying and trying to pick up the play book as best as he can along the way. For someone that is 37 years old, thats impressive IMO, he still has that urge and desire to win.
GO BRETT AND GO JETS!! You can only get better. :)
