Jets coach Eric Mangini gave his newborn son the middle name "Brett" after quarterback Brett Favre. Zack Brett Mangini, 7 pounds and 13 ounces, was born on Friday, which is also Favre's birthday! Mangini apparently promised to bestow Brett on his unborn child when the Jets were wooing Favre, who said, "The odds of the child being born on the same day as my birthday, I don't know what the odds are ... The odds, in some respects, are a lot like me. What were the odds of me ever coming to the Jets?" Mangini's two other sons' middle names are also related to football: Son Jake Harrison's middle name is after New England safety Rodney Harrison (Mangini worked for the Patriots) and Luke Wiliam's middle name is after Pats coach Bill Belichick. Gang Green faces the Bengals today at 1 p.m.
