It was planetary alignment for the Jets

Jet fans may need a while to get used to it, and it may be hard for some to say goodbye to Chad Pennington, but it shouldn’t take too long for them to realize that they are now players and playoff contenders in the AFC.

The timing was pretty good for this move, too, since the Jets upgraded and solidified their offense line this off-season. And Brett Favre will make this line better. D’Brickashaw Ferguson hasn’t stood out on film at all, in fact he’s struggled, but he’s had a good off-season, and Favre could actually make him look like one of the better LTs in the AFC this year.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
