Our long national nightmare is over: Brett Favre has been traded to the New York Jets

I previously mentioned I wanted to avoid Brett Favre chatter, and in fact I've avoided Sportscenter and NFL Live for much of the last week.  However, this is the one story I'm willing to happily report.  The Packers have traded Brett Favre to the New York Jets for what appears to be a fourth round draft pick that can increase in value depending on how the Jets perform.  While the Patriots are obviously still the favorites in the AFC East, if Favre can play like he did last season (no guarantees of that), the Jets could become a playoff contender.

The main reason I'm posting about this is because this will end the chatter about Favre potentially coming to the 49ers (and apparently now Jeff Garcia as well) or at least people wanting him to come to the 49ers.  I noticed the Chad Pennington diary just now and I'll just say, no way in hell right now.  I like Chad Pennington, but he is certainly not the answer.

Thankfully we can go back to enjoying our own boring little QB competition.  Praise the lord, although I certainly wonder how much additional coverage this will mean on Sportscenter.
