The leaves are turning and Brett Favre is finding his groove in New York
It's starting, that fall thing: The leaves are turning, the October Surprise came a bit early with the Wall Street bailout, and Brett Favre is finding his groove. With the Green Bay Packers and New York Jets apparently headed in opposite directions, Packers GM Ted Thompson and Coach Mike McCarthy face a growing chorus of questions why they let the 38-year-old Favre go, when he's still perfectly capable of shaking off a bad first quarter and going on to throw a career-high six touchdown passes. In one game. For the New York Jets.
