    Favre should do with what little dignity he has left, and hang it up. All he's really doing is getting coaches fired.

    He can't, he's an attention whore.

    My respect and admiration for Brett Favre went from fairly high to less than zero from this whole Packers-to-Jets fiasco.

    I was on the right side of this issue from the get-go.

    Brett has problems.

    The guy holds people hostage, emotionally. He wants to see how much people want him. "Attention whore" is a pretty good description.

    Mangini got hosed. But it was probably good for him to get out of New York. Any front office that run its head coach out the door over Brett Favre is definitely not a safe place to be a head coach. I know that Mangini probably endorsed or signed off on the Favre acquisition, but a smart front office would let a coach be a coach--I don't see Mangini thinking Brett HAD to keep playing, do you?

    If Favre had a private office at the facility, and didn't mix well with the rest of the team, then it tells me Favre had the balls of the front office in his hands. And Mangini probably couldn't do anything about it.

    J-E-T-S Favre! Favre! Favre!

    Brett needs a public relations intervention.

    Jones is a punk. He scored one touchdown and the Jets went 4-12 the year before Favre got there. Everyone's riding Pennington's nuts, why not give Favre his respect for the turnaround?

    I've called this guy out for 3 years now...with every holding hostage and non-announcement. Nothing more than an attention ho. His last game was pitiful.

    Thomas Jones isn't known to run off at the mouth, and teams don't vote for "punks" the team MVP.

    Throwing your teammate under the bus is a punk. Why not bring it up to his face?

    I think you missed on that one.The man ran for 1300 yards and scored 13 TD's this year. He's not speaking out of his ass here. He's got all the right in the world to call Brett Favre out. Favre might be a first ballot HOF QB but he's not infallible and he's not above reproach.

    A guy who spends all his time in his own private room isn't exactly a "teammate".

    His dignity rating is already sitting on dead zero since the summer. He stunk in 05 and 06 then had a good year in 07 and wisely retired. Then doofusville broke out. Winners: Dolphins got Pennington and won the division. Packers: got draft pick. Losers: anyone associated with the Jets, especially the coach.
    So Dunta Robinson is a punk for pointing out that Carr wasn't leading the team to success?
    Maybe the reason Jones didn't bring it up to his face is he couldn't find him.

    Finding his office was easy...breaking in, and and talking some sense to him wasn't so.

    He's done some damn good things on a football field, but its really time to move on now. I was interested and pleased he decided to give it one last crack, but its not going to happen, he's gotta take his health whilst he's got it, and go pick up some lifetime announcing job or something.

    I would have just wondered why he felt he had to air it out for the media. I generally hate it when a player can't keep it in-house. JMO.

    Having said that I hope that Farve goes away. It'll take Tony K. at least two years to talk about anything else.

    The Packers were right to move on. I think this will hurt the Jets a lot more than just missing the playoffs this year.

    I echo that opinion. Guess it's just the way I am, but team matters need to be resolved within the team and not through the sports media.

    Even though he was correct, it still rubbed me wrong that Dunta called Carr out. To be fair, I didn't hear or read of any teammate questioning where Dunta was on the first TD pass against the Bears last Sunday.

    Talk to your coaches, then the GM if that doesn't help. Spilling your guts to some fatty holding the microphone doesn't help the situation IMO.
