The latest word out of New York is that Brett Favre is considering whether or not to return to the Jets, and that the Jets absolutely want him back.
Well, maybe ALL the Jets.
Running back Thomas Jones publicly tore into Favre over the holiday, essentially saying he should have been benched for Kellen Clemons.
"If somebody is not playing well, they need to come out of the game," Jones told Hot 97 FM. "You're jeopardizing the whole team because you're having a bad day. To me, that's not fair to everybody else. You're not the only one. So when you get to the wire and somebody is just giving the game up, I mean, it's just not [fair]."
Favre averaged 202 passing yards per game in the final five games, with a TOTAL of 2 TDs and 9 INTs over that stretch.

His Majesty Brett Favre went on to lead the Dolphins to a division title and won Comeback Player of the Year.

Nice job Jets.
I don't think that Favre will be back with the Jets next year, but if he is it has to be a considered a factor that will reduce the fantasy value of all Jets. He's destined for Canton, but he's not getting it done right now.
