If Favre & Jets part, NY will be in AFC East basement

If what SI.com’s Peter King suspects is true concerning Brett Favre and the Jets parting ways if he’s forced to attend offseason workouts (something he’s never done), then the Jets have to go right in the basement of the division.

Sure there’s talent on that roster, but more than ever the NFL is a quarterback driven league, and if you don’t have one, you don’t have a chance, especially in this division.

Unless the Jets can land a Sanchez or Stafford in the draft (and even they might not be ready to step in a play right away) or pry a Kerry Collins away from Tennessee in free agency, Kellen Clemens and Brett Ratliff are not getting it done.

And for those that don’t believe the impact a quarterback has on a team’s fortunes, just talk to the Dolphins about Chad Pennington.
