Jets' Mangini Out, Favre Next?
We thank Press Clips for alerting us to the firing of Jets head coach Eric Mangini. Local sports reporters were outraged by the team's "Mets-like" late-season collapse from 8-3 to 9-7, and by yesterday's loss to the Dolphins, whose QB Chad Pennington used to play for the Jets, and who, unlike the Jets, are going to the playoffs. Now that Mangini's done, some of the sports scribes are fantasizing about Bill Parcells and the departure of 39-year-old quarterback Brett Favre. Pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie in 46 days.
