I’m a little worried about the quality of cheese in the next few months as last night, giving the final kill shot to Packers fans nationwide, Brett Favre was traded to the Jets. Meanwhile, in homes all across New Jersey, Jets fans rejoice.
And then New England woke up… and I think coffee shot out of the noses of quite a few. Because this shakes things up, makes things more interesting, but as any reasonable football fan will tell you (aside from nostalgic Packers fans and desperate Jets fans) this move will serve no other purpose than selling tickets to Giants Stadium.
If anything, I think this is a good day for Chad Pennington. Finally, he’ll flee a team whose fans cheered his injuries. He’ll flee a coach that rode Asante Samuel’s coattails to a head coaching job. My guess is he’ll end up in Miami with Bill Parcells, the man who initially drafted him. We all know Parcells loves to bring players he knows with him *cough Terry Glenn cough* and I can’t think of a team that needs a QB as much as Miami. PLUS, he’s coming from a division rival (plus), he’s already familiar with the AFC and its teams (double plus), and hell, Noodle Arm still beats the Lemon/Green/What’s-His-Name combo that cost Cam Cameron his job last season. AND he’ll be in Florida. Who doesn’t love Florida?! Florida rules!
