Brett Favre's stay with the Jets will likely be remembered only as a footnote in his career like Joe Motana's stint in Kansas City. It certainly did not end well. However, number 4 provided lasting memories in his fleeting time in New York. From his miracle toss to Chansi Stuckey on Opening Day to his six touchdown game against the eventual NFC Champions to his magical Thursday night in Foxborough, Favre had some incredible performances. Let us remember these instead of the bitter end.

Now Gang Green will enter free agency with a clear understanding of its cap space and quarterback situation.
