Practice Does Not Make Perfect

The J-E-T-S spent $75 million this year on a state-of-the-art new training facility designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, but they may still miss the playoffs, after a string of losses to close out the season. Brett Favre, the consummate football throwback, seemed an odd fit for this team devoted to technology from the moment his signature was announced. My review of the Atlantic Health Jets Training Facility appears in the latest (Jan./Feb.) issue of ID Magazine. I wasn't the only writer to note the disjunction between Favre and the Jets' organizational obsession with technology. Jeff MacGregor addressed this in a superb profile for the now defunct NYT sports magazine, Play. Update: The Jets did miss the playoffs, in typical Jets fashion. Favre may or may not be back.
