Wis. man buys Favre-Jets jersey 6 years ago

Tuesday, August 12, 2008 ASSOCIATED PRESS

RACINE, Wis. -- Joe Braun thought he bought a Brett Favre Packers jersey for his wife for Christmas six years ago. Instead he accidentally got a mostly green one with a Jets logo on the sleeve.

But the 55-year-old and his 54-year-old wife Jeannette decided to keep it.

Actually, the couple from Racine didn't even realize it wasn't green and gold.

"I picked it up, wrapped it and never even noticed," said Joe Braun, who said he bought it at JC Penney. "She opened it on Christmas morning. She put it on and our son noticed it was wrong."

Their son urged them to keep it in case it was worth something someday.

So they did and Jeannette Braun has wore the Jets jersey, which is mostly green with white lettering and numbers, to Lambeau Field.

"We have season tickets," Jeannette Braun said. "We go to about three games a year, and no one ever even mentioned it."

The Brauns daughter, Lisa Fiorita, wore the jersey to work last Friday. She said she got mixed reactions from her co-workers. Fiorita said someone offered her $500 for the jersey, but the family plans to keep their Favre misprint.

"He got us to a Super Bowl," Jeannette Braun said of Favre. "We're really going to miss him."

Joe Braun jokes that he can see the future.

"I knew he was going to play for the Jets someday," he said.

JETS' RUSH 4-TIFIED

DEEP THREAT SHOULD HELP RBS

By MARK CANNIZZARO

Posted: 4:17 am

August 12, 2008

The view from across the line of scrimmage might appear a bit foreign to JetsNew York Jets running backs Thomas JonesThomas Jones and Leon WashingtonLeon Washington .

As they peer over their own wide-body offensive line - Nick Mangold, Alan Faneca, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Brandon Moore and Damien Woody - Jones and Washington might find it to be a little less congested on the other side.

They might find the rush-hour traffic a bit lighter than it was last year thanks to the presence of Brett Favre at quarterback.

For all the gifts Chad Pennington possesses, we're not breaking any news by reporting that his arm strength was not one of them. Because of that, opposing defenses didn't have to fear the deep passes from Pennington and they could even cheat a bit on the perimeter stuff near the sideline.

That allowed opposing defenses to stack eight defenders in the box to stuff Jones at or near the line of scrimmage and smother Washington when the Jets tried to get him into space to make a big play with his elusiveness and speed.

The result was a 19th ranking in the NFL in rushing (only five teams had an average of less than the Jets' 3.8-yards per carry) and too much pressure on Pennington and Kellen Clemens to make plays.

Favre, because he can throw the ball with velocity from Hempstead to Florham Park, N.J., should be able to reverse that trend. That much has appeared evident through only three days of training camp practices as of yesterday.

Because Favre can zip the ball into an antique door keyhole from 60 yards away, opposing defenses are going to have to think twice before sending an extra defender in the box, otherwise Favre could pick the secondary apart.

That should translate into more running lanes for Jones and more open space for Washington.

"All I can do is speak from experience," said Jets fullback Tony Richardson. "When I was in Minnesota, we played Brett and the Packers twice a year and I remember watching our defensive preparation all week long and then you get to the game and he just tears you apart.

"You try to disguise as many looks as you can and he recognizes it and throws a quick pass outside. Then you stop that and he hands the ball to a running back. It's like you're playing chess and a lot of times you're going to lose that chess match to Brett Favre. I've experienced it first hand, up close and personal. "Having a guy like that on your team knows it keeps the defense honest." That's music to Jones' ears.

"I'm not sure exactly what defenses are going to play," Jones said. "They know the caliber of play, know what (Favre) brings to the table and they may back up or they may not.

"Obviously as a running back, you want to go up there with six guys in the box. That's one less guy that you have to deal with before you get in the secondary. I'm going to do everything I can to make his life easier, try get him acclimated to offense and team.

"Just the fact that you have a proven quarterback who's had an outstanding career is enough for people to pay attention."

Asked, from a defensive standpoint, how much Favre's presence could help open up the running game that was so dormant last season, Jets linebacker David Bowens said, "Oh, big time . . . big time."

"In a perfect world I'd say both (Jones and Washington) have 1,000 yards rushing," Bowens said. "The running game has come along so far very well. We have potential to do that."

JET BOOSTER

FAVRE'S ARRIVAL HELPING TIX SALES

By BRIAN LEWIS

August 12, 2008

If you're a Jet fan hoping for tickets to go see Broadway Brett and Gang GreenNew York Jets , you might want to consider Saturday's preseason game against Washington, because apparently Favre Fever is making the entire regular-season slate both a tough ticket and a pricy one.

As of yesterday afternoon there were over 3,000 tickets available on StubHub for the 'Skins game, averaging $38 and starting as low as $20 per ticket. The regular-season? That's a whole different animal, with the home opener against the Patriots being the best-selling NFL tilt of the whole regular-season, with the current average selling price of $257.

"StubHub saw an incredible spike in sales immediately following the Jets' acquisition of Favre. In fact, it was our largest sales day in company history, due in large part to this Favre Fever," said Joellen Ferrer, a Corporate Communication Specialist for StubHub. "Post-trade, over $1 million worth of Jets tickets sold through StubHub in less than a 24-hour time span."

Sure, $1 million is a lot of cash to most people not named Favre, but it's just a number. For a little more perspective, StubHub sales for Jets tickets this season more than doubled in just 12 hours after the Favre news broke.

Before the trade, Gang Green ticket sales were ranked a sorry 22nd among all NFL teams in terms of dollar value. The Favre deal shot them all the way up to - in a clear case of cosmic football irony - No. 4, behind only the Chargers, Redskins and top-selling Cowboys.

According to Reebok, about 60,000 Favre Jets jersey's have already been sold, the top figure in the league. The company said his Jets jersey is outselling Favre's Packers jersey and Tom Brady's Patriots jersey.

So, what exactly does that mean for Jet fans who don't have season tickets that want to see their team play? Just how badly is this going to hurt their wallet?

Well, before Gang Green got Favre the average cost of one of their tickets on StubHub was a feasible $138. On Thursday, that price skyrocketed to $240 before sinking back to $219 yesterday afternoon on their way to presumably more sane numbers as Favre Fever subsides.

The Jets wouldn't confirm how many added applications they've gotten to their season-ticket waiting list, but yesterday The Post reported over 2,000 fans download applications to join the list, which had 10,000 names before the deal

SCHABLE FINE AFTER INJURY

By MARK CANNIZZARO

Posted: 4:17 am

August 12, 2008

Perhaps the best sight of yesterday's practice was tight end A.J. Schable back in uniform only days after suffering what appeared to be a serious neck injury in the preseason game against the Browns Thursday night.

"I feel a lot better; the neck's just a little stiff, but other than that it feels pretty good to finally get out here," he said. "When I was laying there on the field that's the most scared I've ever been. Laying there for about a minute I couldn't feel my left side.

"After the trainers came out, about 30 seconds later, I could start to get the feeling back."

Schable was injured on a kickoff coverage play when he collided with a Browns offensive lineman helmet-to-helmet and fell backward. He was removed from the field in a stretcher, immobilized and brought to a nearby hospital for observation.

"I was just running down on the kickoff and I was real pumped up because this was the first chance I had to do any contact since December of '06 and I was the first one down there," he said. "I ran into the guy and the next thing I know I'm laying on my side and I couldn't move my left side. At first, I was thinking, 'Oh, man, I'm done playing.' I was just thinking of the worst."

WR Laveranues ColesLaveranues Coles , still sorting out his hurt feelings over the release of his friend, Chad PenningtonChad Pennington , continues to decline interview requests.

Yesterday marked the third consecutive day that Coles, who last year emerged as perhaps one of the most affable team spokesmen in the JetsNew York Jets locker room, refused to meet with reporters.

Faneca must help build Jets' wall around Favre

Shaun Powell

August 12, 2008

He wasn't bear-hugged at the airport by a raucous welcoming committee. There was no scenic helicopter tour over Manhattan or the Jets' new training facility in New Jersey, or a handshake or hello from the mayor, and nobody planted a tree in his honor.

Fans didn't rush his first practice to scream his name, and Don Maynard jerseys probably are a hotter seller right now than his - assuming, of course, he actually has a jersey on sale.

No, when he came to the Jets, Alan Faneca didn't get the Favre treatment.

Yet in some ways, what Faneca represents is nearly as critical. Because if the protection for Brett Favre turns out to be poor this season, how do you suppose Favre will turn out?

We know what's at stake," Faneca said.

Favre needs bodyguards who will do their best to keep him in one piece. He's 38, remember. He's one blind-side hit away from turning the ball and the season over to Kellen Clemens, who, by the way, spent most of last season running for his life.

The offensive line was a mess because the Jets never addressed it properly. They strangely took a frugal stance with Pete Kendall, the only dependable veteran on the line, and eventually let him slip to the Redskins. That put an unfair burden on Nick Mangold and D'Brickashaw Ferguson, a pair of kids who suddenly found themselves serving as anchors.

Other teams seized the opportunity to pound Chad Pennington into the turf, and after Pennington was replaced, Clemens discovered how hard it is to learn the quarterback position when you're constantly looking up at the sky.

Well, wasn't it just a neat coincidence for the Jets when they upgraded the O-line before they even knew they would get Favre? They paid big money for Faneca because the left guard makes the Pro Bowl almost every year. They also opened the wallet for Damien Woody, who can play anywhere on the line and is reliable whenever he's not limping.

Mangold might be among the two or three best young centers in the league, and the Jets hope D'Brickashaw will master left tackle, the most important position on the line when it comes to the overall health and well-being of the quarterback.

Favre, in one sense, is fairly easy to protect, for this reason: He gets rid of the ball quickly. He doesn't take sacks, he's constantly on the move and he's highly alert to the chaos surrounding him in the pocket.

All this has helped him start 253 straight games, 275 including postseason, amazing considering how fragile quarterbacks are in this league.

Plus, because Favre has seen every defense imaginable in his 17 years, teams might be wary of blitzing him, fearing his quick release.

Therefore, even at his advanced age, Favre has proven to be one of the toughest quarterbacks to sack, unless you're Michael Strahan and on the verge of a sack record and you need a gimme.

That's all good, and yet that's all in the past. The job of protecting the quarterback just got a little more important for a team that allowed 53 sacks last season.

"Our approach as offensive linemen is the same no matter who's back there," Faneca said. "In that sense, nothing's changed. But what he's done on the field speaks for itself. He's a valuable player, an important part of the equation, and we'll treat him that way."

Faneca seems like a smart addition because he's 31, still in his prime and has missed only one start in eight years. Woody is the riskier of the two from an injury standpoint, based on the last two years, in which he missed 14 games, but Eric Mangini knows him from the Patriots and how well Woody helped keep Tom Brady's jersey nice and clean.

If it falls right for the Jets, the offensive line could go from being their biggest weakness to one of their bigger strengths.

With Favre taking snaps, do the Jets really have a choice?

Favre isn't part of the long-term plan. His time with the Jets is expected to be short, maybe two years max. He's a win-now player, which means the longer he stays healthy, the better his addition looks for the Jets.

"A process still needs to go on between Brett and us because we still have to get to know the guy," Mangold said. "We're all anxious to get that started and move on."

For 16 games, maybe more, the offensive line had better have Favre's back, because he's one hit away from turning the Jets back into the Same Old.

Chad looks solid in first practice with Dolphins

Compiled from wire reports

August 12, 2008

Chad Pennington worked overtime yesterday in his first practice with the Dolphins.

After a workout that lasted almost two hours, Pennington remained inside the practice bubble for about 20 extra minutes to work on routes with tight ends and wide receivers.

Pennington, cut by the Jets to make room for Brett Favre, began playing catch-up with his new team in Davie, Fla. As coach Tony Sparano hinted before practice, Pennington got most of the work in 11-on-11 drills. He took 28 of the 54 snaps, and rookie Chad Henne got 21. Josh McCown and John Beck split the rest.

"Did we even practice?" Pennington joked. "It went by real fast ... I remember when I was a rookie and everything is just a blur. I could actually see what was going on defensively, but just trying to recall the information and my responsibilities with each play, it went by pretty fast."

Pennington completed 13 of 21 passes, including a touchdown, but also was intercepted in a red-zone drill by cornerback Andre Goodman. Despite the interception, Pennington impressed Goodman.

"If you ask every guy what we see out of Chad, that ball comes out on time," Goodman said. "Receivers turn their heads and it's almost hitting them in the face sometimes. It's amazing to see that on day one."

Guard Justin Smiley agreed. "He doesn't know any of us from the man on the moon now, but he comes into the huddle and says, 'Give me your eyes.' ... Just stuff a veteran with great leadership [does]."

Jones: Not guilty plea

Jaguars receiver Matt Jones pleaded not guilty to possession of cocaine, a charge that carries up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Jones, who is free on a $2,500 bond, faces an Oct. 10 trial date.

Around the league

Seahawks receiver Bobby Engram will miss six to eight weeks with a cracked shoulder ... Panthers receiver Steve Smith is day to day with a concussion ... The 49ers signed linebacker Takeo Spikes.

For Favre, everyone's a target, so keep moving

BY ERIK BOLAND | erik.boland@newsday.com

August 12, 2008

Getting accustomed to the velocity of Brett Favre's passes is something the Jets' receivers are working on. But rookie tight end Dustin Keller said there's more involved in getting used to Favre than merely adjusting to ball speed.

"I've never played with a quarterback who has a no-look pass in his repertoire," Keller said.

That takes some explaining, although receivers who have played with Favre know exactly what Keller means.

"There is no such thing as a decoy route, not as long as you have Brett back there," said tight end Bubba Franks, who played the last eight seasons in Green Bay before signing as a free agent with the Jets. "I tell the guys, even when you're covered, you're not really covered. If you have two hands, two arms, you're not covered. He's going to hit one of them. As long as you can see him, he can see you."

In other words, never give up on a route. Receivers said they noticed how quickly Favre runs through his progressions before picking a target, sometimes coming back to his original read. Coach Eric Mangini called Favre a "full-field quarterback" and said receivers and defensive backs always have to be ready.

"Some guys will drop back, and they look one direction, and the other half of the field you can pretty much write off," Mangini said. "They're not going to come back to that side. With Brett, everybody has to play at all times. You just don't know when suddenly your number is going to be called. If you weren't anticipating it, you can end up with a Wilson between the facemask, or if it's a defensive back, it can be a 70-yard completion."

Favre threw one of those, a 75-yard touchdown to Jerricho Cotchery, on Sunday. There were a few highlights yesterday, such as a 31-yard scoring toss to Laveranues Coles that cornerback Justin Miller seemed to lose in the air, but also Favre's first pick as a Jet in an 11-on-11 drill. Kerry Rhodes intercepted a deep sideline pass intended for David Clowney by swooping in from the middle of the field and making a one-handed grab with his right hand.

"I made him think I was a post safety," Rhodes said. "He threw it and I was just able to get back and get a nice jump on it."

Cornerback Darrelle Revis earned two interference penalties, climbing on Coles and Brad Smith when they were in the path of Favre darts. Revis, of course, disputed the penalties on the field but said afterward that competing against Favre is unique.

"I don't know how he slings the ball like he does," Revis said. "I'm just happy to have him as a teammate."

Notes & quotes: Coles still has not talked publicly since Chad Pennington, one of his closest friends on the team, was released. "I spoke to Laveranues right after we made the decision that we made," Mangini said. "We have good, honest conversations. Laveranues and Chad were good friends. Each situation takes different people different amounts of time to work through. It's not a function of any sort of feeling toward Brett. He's been great in meetings and practices. There has been no real change with any of that stuff." ... WR Marcus Henry, who was sidelined the past week with a leg injury, started the afternoon back on the field but finished practice on an exercise bike. Still out: Shaun Ellis (hand) and Jason Trusnik (foot). Cotchery did not practice, but that was a reward for some of his offseason work ... A crowd of about 4,000 watched. Both practices today, at 8:45 a.m. and 5:45 p.m., are closed to the public.

Which Jets Benefit the Most From the Favre Trade?

By Joe Caporoso | August 12th, 2008

Brett Favre had another solid day in practice on Monday, which is encouraging news as the Jets head into an off day. The Jets new quarterback threw impressive touchdowns to Laveranues Coles and Brad Smith, and effectively led the team to a TD in a 2 minute drill situation. He was intercepted once by Kerry Rhodes, who made an acrobatic one handed catch and probably should have picked by Eric Smith on a floater to Dustin Keller, yet with Favre you take the good with the bad. The early reports remain good, and I am anxious to see him play against Washington this Saturday.

Which Jets should reap the most benefits from the acquisition of Favre? Let

Crennel says he sees improvement

Coach has wait-and-see approach for victims of Jets

By Marla Ridenour

Beacon Journal sports writer

Published on Tuesday, Aug 12, 2008

BEREA: Even if it had been newly acquired New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre burning the Browns' inexperienced secondary Thursday night, it wouldn't have been easy to take.

But Brett Ratliff?

The first-year player from Utah toasted the Browns' backups on touchdowns of 71 and 70 yards to receiver David Clowney in the Jets' 24-20 triumph. On the first, A.J. Davis and Nick Sorensen gave chase. On the second, since-released Steve Cargile and Mil'Von James, a rookie from UNLV, were the victims.

But Browns coach Romeo Crennel refused to jump to conclusions about the secondary's lack of depth after one performance.

''I don't think you can make a generalization about the secondary depth on two plays,'' Crennel said. ''You're always concerned about players not doing the right thing. If they give up those kinds of plays the next game, then I will be more concerned.''

The Browns don't play again until Monday, when the team visits the Meadowlands for a nationally televised preseason game against the New York Giants. But Crennel has already noticed improvement in the four practices since the Jets game.

''They're working harder and trying to concentrate more,'' Crennel said Monday. ''But it's different out here than it is in the game. We'll have to wait until the game to see if they really learned anything.''

The Browns brought in two new safeties Saturday, ex-Buckeye Brandon Mitchell and Travis Key, a rookie from Michigan State. But Sorensen, a seven-year veteran and valuable special teams player after he was picked up last October, doesn't feel more heat.

''Every day is like that,'' Sorensen said. ''I treat every day the same, regardless of what happens in the game, good, bad, whatever. That's how I'm always going to approach it.

''[Clowney] was fast. Everyone's fast. They had a good play and that was pretty much it. We had to do our job and we didn't. We don't want to ever give up touchdowns. We worked on it; we're good.''

Starting cornerbacks Eric Wright and Brandon McDonald and safeties Sean Jones and Brodney Pool haven't lost faith in their brethren.

''It all comes down to making a big play and preventing the big play,'' Wright said. ''Overall, they had a pretty decent night. They had two big plays that make it look like they did a horrible job. We made sure they corrected those mistakes. Those guys are working hard every day out here and in the classroom to make sure those kinds of things don't happen.''

Pool didn't believe the backups had that bad of a night.

''You see one or two plays go over their head, but overall they came back,'' Pool said. ''A.J. did well. They're young, so they're still learning.''

Pool wouldn't overemphasize the importance of Monday's game for them.

''We've got a long ways to go,'' Pool said.

Edwards update

Crennel said receiver Braylon Edwards, who needed stitches and spent the night in the Cleveland Clinic after teammate Donte' Stallworth stepped on his right heel Saturday with his cleats, was resting at home. Crennel did not seem overly angry that Edwards was jogging at the end of practice in his socks.

''Kids are kids. They take their shoes off and run around all the time,'' Crennel said. ''Maybe his feet were hurting that day. We'll educate them a little bit more about keeping their shoes on until they get inside. Things like this, we don't want them to happen, we don't like them to happen, but they happen. What can you do about it? You educate them.''

Asked whether it mattered if Edwards didn't play the rest of the preseason, Crennel said, ''That's not a concern because he's a Pro Bowl player and I know he'll work to get back.''

Injury update

Crennel said receiver Kevin Kasper tweaked his hamstring again last week and will have to ''start from scratch again.''

Guard Seth McKinney was back in uniform after being sidelined for two weeks with a high ankle sprain. ''I'm getting there,'' McKinney said. ''It's a start. These things take time. It's a weird injury.'' Also more involved were tight end Steve Heiden (knee), tight end Kellen Winslow (hamstring) and fullback Lawrence Vickers (hamstring).

Erik Boland's Blog...

No practice tomorrow (Tuesday)

The word just came from the Jets: practice is cancelled for Tuesday. This has no effect on your travel plans because you weren't allowed to go anyway. Practice resumes with a double session on Wednesday; at 8:45 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. Sharp. Both are open to the public.

This also means no long practice blog from me on Tuesday but I will post something of quality. Well, I'll post something. Carry on with practice discussions/questions either here or in the previous post.

Eric says Erik throws funny

But not this Erik. Mangini meant as in Erik Ainge, apparently the funniest of the Jets rookies. Mangini talked in his press conference just now about a skit put on by the rookies last night in which everyone from Mangini to Brett Favre got lampooned.

"He's funny," Mangini said of Ainge.

Pause, and then: "Some of his throws have been funny."

Ouch.

Then there was this exchange: A reporter from Green Bay wanted to know if Favre might have time this evening to watch his former team, which is playing on Monday Night Football.

Reporter: "Eric, I was curious, I don't know what your schedule is like tonight...

Mangini: "Are you asking me out? I'm married."

Always thought it would be me...

Anyway, for those who are interested in exactly what they'll be seeing if they head to practice today, this was Mangini talking about this afternoon's practice plan in his opening statement.

"We have the next phase of the installation and really, for Brett, there's an element of installation still going in. For the rest of the group, this is really review. And it continues to be review. There may be a few things here and there that we add but overall, today, is like a Friday with a little bit more time, obviously, you can pick and choose what you want to focus on. That's how we always use the fourth practice of any cycle of installation. That's what we'll be doing here this afternoon."

And as I finished typing that sentence, I see the sun breaking through so practice will be outside. All are welcome. I'll return after player interviews and the like. The next time we'll hear from Favre will be Wednesday. So that will be the next time, I suppose, we'll see the "celebrity" media out here. That means you, SNY's Steve Overmyer.
