Jets owner wants Favre back | Truth&Rumors | FanNation "Woody Johnson found his coach this week, now he's turned his eyes to his quarterback - and he's looking at you, Brett Favre. Johnson reiterated his desire to have Favre under center in 2009 on WFAN yesterday afternoon. The Jets owner believes No. 4 is still the answer for the Jets, but he did say new coach Rex Ryan will have input in the decision and general manager Mike Tannenbaum will have final say. "I'm not going to bully them," Johnson said, "but I like [Favre], and I think we can win with him." What does Favre think? No one seems to know. Tannenbaum said Favre is hunting in Louisiana at the moment, and the team does not plan on talking to him until next month to find out if he's leaning toward retirement."
