Top Five Potential Brett Favre Headlines
Brett Favre sports a Jets cap as he gets ready to come to New York.
By Lang Whitaker, SI.com
When news broke last night that Brett Favre had been traded to the Jets, I was thrilled. Like it or not, I have to watch a lot of Jets games because I live in New York City and, like about 10 million other people here in Manhattan, I don't have a clear view of the Southern sky. So I can't get DirecTV. So I can't watch my favorite NFL team (the Falcons). Why not? Because the NFL doesn't want to have as many fans as possible, basically. I'm not a Jets fan, but now at least there's a compelling storyline to follow this season as the Jets and Bills play what seem like a dozen times this fall.
But I was mostly excited about Favre to the Jets because it means a slew of fun headlines in the New Yor City tabloids. In particular, the New York Post is famous for their snappy headlines -- yesterday's story about pollution in China was called "Peking Yuck" -- and I expect no less all season long (today the Post used "Brett the Jet" while the Daily News went with "Jet Favre"). Here are my top five possible Brett Favre in New York headlines for the season...
1. Jets Set With Brett
2. Jets Looking Favre Better
3. Oddsmakers Brett On New Jets
4. Broadway Brett!
5. Favre And Away Improvement
