A quick congrats to the NY Jets for handling the Pats in an upset victory. I must admit I was surprised at how dreadful the Pats Offense looked the second half of that game against the Jets D absent Revis. Sanchez settled down nicely and ran his offense well, particularly in the second half.
However, as we all know, this isn't a Jets lover's blog so I feel the need to point out a couple of positive things from the game. Was it poetic justice that Revis strains his hamstring after getting beat by 'the slouch'? Was it life striking back at Coach Slob and the Einsteins in the front office that game him that stupid contract? Whatever the case, Fantasy Island is officially gimpy and now that he has his contract, it will most likely effect his performance for the rest of the year. Maybe Brodney Pool can take his place? 12 picks in over 5 years in the league...I highly doubt it. Maybe Cromartie will make up for the loss of Revis...if he can keep his head straight and out of trouble perhaps.
At least they have their offense to win games. I'm sure Tomlinson won't break down like he has the past few years and Greene will improve on his 3.5 ypc with two fumbles over two games. Maybe Braylon Edwards will step up...oh, nevermind. I forgot, he's still hungover from when he was trashed and driving with two of the other brain strainers on the team. This offense is so shallow that if any of these issues go unresolved, we'll be back to the days of 9-6 football games that are about as enjoyable as a toothache.
As for week #3, if the Jets play like they did this past week, they can come out of Miami with a W. The crucial factor is whether or not babymaker Cromartie can handle Marshal and keep him under some sort of control. As I think this team is full of degenerates and morons, I see a W-L-W-L type season as they don't have the mental capacity to put together winning streaks. Maybe if Coach Slob brings some burgers and dogs to the game, this zoo can focus enough to pull out a win. We'll see.
Week #2 versus the New England Patriots
