Hello, Brett. Goodbye, Chad.

Brett Favre, one of the most popular quarterbacks in NFL history, has been traded to the New York Jets for a conditional fourth-round draft pick. And while it is exciting to acquire a player of Favre's caliber, it also means that the Jets are losing one of the most talented and inspirational players in all of professional sports: Chad Pennington. He has been the heart and soul of the team for many years, and it's a shame to see him discarded for the sake of acquiring a big-name player. Favre is a small-town boy who wanted to play for the Vikings. He's 38 years old and until very recently, had decided that he was done playing football. Does the Jets front office really think they're serving the long-term interests of the team with this move?

Wow, I figured you would be dancing in the streets over this.

This is a distraction, not a solution. Not exactly the "quarterback of the future," is he?

Say what you want about Pennington, but he has been a powerful force both on and off the field, not to mention a better lifetime QB rating than Tom Brady, Dan Marino and - that's right - Brett Favre.
