Favre a Jet

I think this is probably a mistake.  Pennington was the guy for the Medowlands.  He got tossed under the bus when the O line couldn’t give him more than 3 seconds to throw the ball.  Look at Eli; he’s got an arm but his completion percentage pales in comparison to Pennington. 

Favre’s got a lot of potential to fail.  He’s got to learn a new system.  NY fans/media aren’t going to lavish him with love past the honeymoon.  He got the adulation from Green Bay fans for all the things he’s done for them.  He’s done nothing for NY and even if he did it wouldn’t matter the instant he thew his next INT.

So what happens at the end of the year even if the Favre experiment goes well?  Will there be another "I’m going to retire, no wait…" mess?  The Jets will need to pick up a QB in free agency or score high and lucky in the draft.  They’re going to have to pick one up in the draft regardless, I’d think.

It seems like there’s high expectations for Favre and the Jets this year.  As a Jet fan that’s rarely turned out to be a good thing.

Leaving before it's time?

While I don’t think we should stay in Iraq indefinitely I wonder about the long term repercussions of leaving before Iraq can fend for itself.  I don’t know if its even possible for that region to be stable without some sort of Saddam dictator at the helm so we very well may have put ourselves in an unwinable position.

But, I imagine there’s a very real possiblity that should we leave prematurely this "national civil war" will turn into a regional war with Iran, Syria, the Kurds and possibly Turkey all joining in the fray.  Wouldn’t that be disastorous on a collossal scale?  Regional instability would be an understatment.  And, we’d just have to go back.

Why is it seemingly impossible to get the world community to help in this endeavor?  Is it that W and co are incapable of asking or is it that the rest of the world would rather sit and watch?  If the dems get their way, and it looks like they will, the US will be out of Iraq in the not so distant future.  Won’t it then become the world’s problem?
