Let’s admit this up front: The first six games have proven conclusively that Brett Favre is mediocre, that the Jets (3-3) are mediocre, and that there isn’t going to be any Super Bowl at the end of their season. That said, this game against the Kansas City Chiefs could be Jets’ fans last chance in 2008 to do a genuine autumn tailgate before the weather gets unruly. (They play the St. Louis Rams at the Meadowlands on November 9, and then no more home games till the Denver Broncos on November 30.) With Jets’ enthusiasm cooled by Sunday’s loss at Oakland, this might be a good time to look for tickets. As we go to press, StubHub still lists more than 3,400 ranging from $34 to $17,144. With the economy the way it is, you might get a better deal from fans hawking their tickets in the parking lot.
