Brett Favre's NY Jets Have That Magical Feel

The New York Jets much anticipated debut of Brett Favre vs the Chad Pennington led Miami Dolphins, which came right down to the wire, showed that this season, if nothing else, will be lots of fun for NY Jets Fans. It was fun to watch Favre(15-for-22,194 yards,2TD) work his magic with a mix of smarts, awareness of the situations around him, and a few gambling improvisational moves thrown in when needed. That 4th and 13 TD toss from the Dolphins 22 yard line to Chansi Stuckey proved that with Favre at Quarterback anything can happen. Not to mention his first TD pass as a Jet, a 56 yard play to Jericho Cotchery on 1st and 10 from the Jets 44 in the 1st Quarter (whoops! I mentioned it). Not that Chad Pennington(26-for-43,251 yards,2TD,1Int) was a slouch with the Jets or as a Dolphin yesterday, but Favre just has a special magic about him that can't be defined; and if yesterdays game is any indication of things to come this season for The New York Jet's it's gonna be interesting and exciting to watch. He brings that long game back to the Jets that they've lacked for a long time; probably since Vinny Testeverde's mirage season. The respect for that passing game also seemed to open up the running game for Thomas Jones; who ran for 101 yards and a TD, matching his TD total of last season in his first game of this one.

The Jets Defense looked pretty good too; with constant pressure on Pennington, including 4 Sacks of him, and giving up only 49 yards on the ground. Although it did get a little scary towards the end with Pennington driving with his ball control offense and never give up attitude, but the Jets Defense held on with a big interception by Terrelle Revis with seconds left in the game to put it away. And new aquisitions Calvin Pace (5 Tackles, 1 Sack) and Kris Jenkins, and Rookie Dwight Lowery (4 Tackles, 3 pass deflections) looked impressive.

Right now things look pretty good for the Jets. 1 and 0 for the season. Undefeated! Yes Jets Fans let's have fun this season and enjoy it while it lasts, because even if we do make the NFL Playoffs this year, and advance in them, the speculation will start again: will he play or will he retire. Oh well, just have fun and enjoy The Magic. Let's do it Brett! Jets,Jets,Jets!
