If this is true, which I believe it is, as Packer fans, should we root for the Jets to lose in order to get a higher third round pick? Or is the difference between pick 100 and 110 so insignificant that we shouldn't waste out time worrying about it? I'd probably go with the latter and continue to root for Brett.


Heh.

Haven't thought of that.

When the Jets returned to practice this afternoon, both their offensive star and their defensive nucleus were on the field with their teammates.

Quarterback Brett Favre, sporting a red jersey and green mesh shorts, had his left ankle wrapped and he moved gingerly in the brief period the media was allowed to watch.

2008 Week 4 - Jets vs Cardinals Game Release

Im doing everything I can to get ready, Favre told reporters this morning. How it will affect me during the course of the week or Sunday remains to be seen.

Favre, whos started an NFL-quarterback-record 256 consecutive games, is not concerned about his ironman streak.

My philosophy has always been if you feel like you can play and not hinder the team one bit, then try at least, he said. Why not try? I think I owe that to not only my teammates but to myself. That's the way I've always looked at it.

Expected to be somewhat limited in practice, Favre isnt worried about losing physical reps. He said hed attempt to do some things today and placed an emphasis on his mental preparation heading into this weekends matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

I love to play. I didn't come here, first of all, to lose. I didn't come in here to get hurt and sit and watch. That's why I played every game, he said. I could have sat out numerous games and no one would ever have questioned the fact that I was hurt, but I wouldn't let it get that far.

Favre, whose 70.0 percent passing accuracy ranks second in the league, will push the remarkable streak to 257 this weekend.

I feel like I can give this team a very good chance to win, he said. Until I'm told otherwise, I'm going to do it.

While Kris Jenkins started against the Chargers, the 64, 349-pound nose tackle was done after one quarter of action. Jets head coach Eric Mangini said he was close to returning, but the mammoth run stuffer was held out.

I am taking it day by day, doing the best I can, said Jenkins who did not participate in team drills in the non-pads session. Obviously, I am not on IR so its a plus. I am working on it day by day and doing what I can to get back on the field with my teammates.

With Carolina, Jenkins, 29, suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in 2004 and tore an ACL in the 05 opener. But since 2006, the eight-year vet has appeared in 35 consecutive games.

I cant go into it, but I can say its not something that was a first-time occurrence, he said of his back problem. It is something that I have dealt with before in the past. Its something I have to work through, and I know how to get through it.

Before the Jets complete the seasons first quarter, theyll tango with the Cards. At 1-2, Favre says each member of the team must believe they cant be beat.

Once this team starts believing all 53 guys start believing that it can be done then it will be, he said.

A pair of losses over the Jets first three games has not made Favre question his decision to press pause on retirement.

There's no doubt from my end. I'll continue to do what I've done from day one, from the day I first stepped onto a field. If that's not good enough, then it's not good enough, he said. It's been good enough up to this point. I've won way more games than I've lost and I don't anticipate that changing.

Favre isnt using the newness of the offense as an excuse for the units lack of productivity at times. In fact, he said, We have to at some point write that off.

The Green & White moved the ball effectively against the Chargers when they went to an empty backfield in the second half with Favre operating out of the shotgun. The Jets actually walked through that package at their La Jolla hotel Sunday.

Do we want to go 60 snaps in a game of empty? Who knows? We have the guys to do it, Favre said. But I think we also have a very effective running game. How we mix the two I think is going to be crucial because I think we saw something that we can do.

Gosh some of you sound like you are just cheering on Brett because of the higher draft pick the Packers will get. Thats kind of cruel in away, again everyone has their own viewpoints.

I for one can say I am cheering on Brett because he has been my QB for many many years and I believe in him and his abilities. I am NOT worried about what number draft pick the Packers will receive and I say that in the most kindness way possible..LOL.. I cheer for him because of the type of person he is, enjoyment he has given me and watching him every Sunday. :)

The Jets have an easy schedule for the next 6 weeks. They could easily be 6-3 after 9 weeks. I hope we can be better than that!

I don't think he will mind. The topic IS Brett Favre, and you just gave info about his injury. To me that is VERY important to the underlying topic.

Cheesy, I thought that same thing, it is about Brett Favre and it was the only thing I could find out about his injury. I guess he twisted his ankle, they have wrapped it and everyday its getting better, so they say he will play on Sunday. He had limited practices though which sucks because he needs all the practice he can get with his recievers.

So quick to ridicule, yet blatantly overlook comments that say otherwise, even when they were emailed directly to you personally.
