Jets owner Woody Johnson was instrumental in bringing Brett Favre to New York last summer. And after a tumultuous 2008 season that included the head coach losing his job and some end-of-year locker room finger-pointing, he's still Favre's biggest adherent.
Johnson's been clear about wanting Favre to return for '09, although he admitted that, ultimately, it's not his decision to make. Which is probably nice to hear if you're new head coach Rex Ryan, who danced around the issue during his introductory press conference Wednesday.
