Favre Watch: The Slide Continues

A month ago there was chatter about Favre being the league MVP.  Not any more.  This sounds familiar:

Favre came up short when the Jets (9-6) needed him most. Then again, New York has felt that way for a month.

The Jets were 8-3 and an apparent shoo-in for the playoffs. But New York has lost three of four while Favre has thrown just one touchdown pass and six interceptions.

Favre undoubtedly can still play, it is just looking more and more like he can't play a 16 game season anymore.  But he does seem to have a stellar 8 to 10 games a year in him before he wears out.  The solution is really simple.  Next year, Favre needs to sit out the first 10 games of the season and then go to a team in playoff contention that needs a QB.  Stay in shape, of course, but wait until the beginning of November to start playing football.

Of course in order to do that, the Jets would have to cut him this offseason with no strings attached.  Seems unlikely.

ADDENDUM:  The Jets would have to cut Favre with no strings attached and Favre would have to voluntarily say goodbye to his precious "streak."
