Jets tried to trade up for Favre and thought they had a deal but it fell through. Jets sat and waited and watched Favre get closer and closer. In the 2nd round, one pick before the Jets would have picked him, the Falcons picked Favre. The Jets went to the next QB on their list and selected Browning Nagle.



With rare exceptions, this is the story of the Jets, in the draft, coach selection, play calling, trades, free agency or any other area.

I think Ron Wolf was a Falcon F.O. guy and when he took the job @ GB he told them to get Favre from ATL. Holmgren might have come from ATL, too. I'll have to check.

Nope. Holmgren spent no time in ATL.

Those paragraphs mentioning Wolf's time with the Jets & the failed attempt to trade up are so depressing, even all these years later. A reminder that being right in evaluation isn't always enough.

This has also just reminded me that Terry Bradway really liked, and strongly argued for, the Jets to pick Russell Wilson.

Instead we picked Stephen Hill.

Wolf was with the jets under the ill fated Steinberg.
the next year he went to gb & traded for favre.
a book recently came out--gunslinger by jeff Pearlman--about favre & it's a pretty good read
