2008 Favre Experiment Jets

Just one season later, Eric Mangini coached his last season for the New York Jets. This season will forever be known as the “Favre experiment.”

Brett Favre, the man, the myth, the legend himself, was literally handed a key to the city upon his Broadway arrival. Things looked so sparkly once Thomas Jones and Leon Washington steamrolled the undefeated Tennessee Titans to get the Jets to 8-3.

But in a cruel football god-like fashion, the Jets could only win one more game the rest of the way. Pouring salt into the wound was the fact Pennington led the Miami Dolphins to the AFC East title, spanking the Jets in Week 17 in New Jersey.

Favre then went on to Minnesota, the place he wanted to be all along.
