New York Jets fans are known for being slightly rambunctious if not over critical of their players and their beloved team. No more evident was this than on Sunday when thousands of fans were heard jeering and booing quarterback Brett Favre after a sub-par performance in the first three quarters of their game against Kansas City.
Favre threw three interceptions in the first three quarters of the game, as the Jets trailed 24-21 early in the fourth quarter. Favre apparently took the boos as motivation, as he swiftly led the Jets downfield on a scoring drive that gave the Jets the 28-14 win.
Fans have always known that Favre can, at times, have a bit of a control problem, but his also a leader on the field and can make huge plays when the time is right. Fans with Jets tickets will undoubtedly continue to have their ups and downs in terms of their adoration for Favre, but for now it seems as though he’s capable of using disgruntled fans as motivation.
