We can finally get on with our lives.

Favre goes to the Jets.

Brett Favre's plane touched down safely at the airport in his hometown of Hattiesburg, Miss., Wednesday afternoon. But in many ways, the Packers quarterback was still waiting to see where he would land, with the Bucs a possibility.

The answer came late Wednesday when the Packers confirmed that Favre was traded to the Jets.

Terms of the compensation were not immediately known, but it is believed to be a conditional draft pick that increases in value depending on how many years he plays and how the team performs in 2008.

The Bucs had been hoping to complete a trade for Favre, but the Jets were willing to part with more for the three-time MVP.

Here in Tampa, I was getting sick of hearing about it. I hope that Jon Gruden is more faithful to his wife than to his quarterback. The gag down here is that Garcia's the starter until Vick gets out of prison.

PS - Spider, you should have titled the post "Jet Favre." Hopefully the Post didn't beat us to that.
