Brett Favre made big news last spring when he bid a tearful farewell to his 17-season football career. By summer he'd made news once more when he signed with the New York Jets. To make room for Favre, the Jets jettisoned quarterback Chad Pennington, who now plays for the Miami Dolphins. This is a move that could haunt the Jets for years to come and one that could break Favre's legacy — while making Chad Pennington's. This Sunday, the Jets play the Dolphins. Our own Jay Cowit previews the showdown.
"The thing that makes great rivals is carrying it over--multiple years where they carry this anger and hate over."
