Jets

Spain
Life is... well, not magical, but tolerable today.

Jake Delhomme threw more interceptions than Mark Sanchez today, so the Jets beat the Panthers and still have a pulse. A very faint one, to be sure, but still a pulse.

Revis was amazing, completely shutting down Steve Smith.

Obviously my teams can only play well when I am here watching. I can never leave home again.

My bf told me "the Jets won!" and I immediately thought about you saying how you couldn't leave home because when you weren't there, your teams fell apart XD

But hey, if there's a pulse, there's still hope XD Congrats, a win is a win :)

Man, that Jets/Panthers game really did come down to who could throw fewer picks in 60 minutes of play. I'm now watching Cutler chuck the ball to various Viking defenders. Sundays are so much fun sometimes. :)

Darrelle Revis is the second best cornerback in football. Mind you, he's also underrated - if you look at the AFC Pro Bowl voting, Champ Bailey is ahead of both Revis and Asomugha, which is just plain silly.

Mark Sanchez
I heard Mark can't keep his head in the game because he's worried that Arya is blind forever...

Then could you never leave home again and also become a Bucs fan? Please?

A piece of truth known to every fan everywhere. So could you do me a favor? I would appreciate it if you could schedule all your trips on weekends when the New York teams are playing the Pats. Thanks! :-)

I thought Sanchez was going to be a fantastic QB. He turned out to be a hero in his head. He's young and behaves younger still. Well, at least Rex finally put him on lockdown as far as throwing the ball. Hopefully he'll mature a become a responsible man. Somehow I don't think he will. He thinks he's a superstar just because he got a superstar's contract.

Maybe next year's motto should be "Shut up and play," as opposed to "Talk big and cry." We shouldn't have any other questions.

This seems to be a common theme with these USC Quarterbacks. They look the part and talk the part, but generally don't live up to the hype. I think they have it too easy playing behind a huge O-Line at USC in that pro offense, but they face players in the NFL are all faster and more physical than in college. They come in thinking they know it all, but get rattled when adversity strikes. Sanchez has the ability to be a solid QB in the NFL. Guys like Brees and Troy Aikman started their careers with less than stellar numbers.

Well, the Seahawks won today, meaning one more victory improves on last year's 4-12 mark. Of course three of the four victories are against the Rams (twice) and Lions. We've got the Niners at home next week, but I'm not really counting on that. I've said all year long that Forsett was Seattle's best RB, and he proved it today running for 130 yds on 22 carries and 2 TD's. I hope our DC gets fired after this season. That horrible "prevent" defense in the 4th Qtr almost let the Rams back in the game! At least have him watch game tape of the Steelers/Ravens game! That was Defense! No weak cover 2 with 10 yard cushions... it was catch the ball and WHACK! IMO, garbage time is a great time to turn up the defensive pressure and crush the opposing offense, rather than back off and let them march down the field.

This season has an odd feel to it. Kind of like grabbing a piece of chocolate cake only discover some prankster added anchovies to the icing.

On the bright side the Ravens managed to beat Pittsburg in overtime despite some really bad plays. They need to start fining their players for penalties though, its getting ridiculous.

Looking forward to tonight’s game Saint’s game.

Some of those calls were highly questionable. Especially the roughing call that helped Pittsburgh kick the tying FG.

Living in Charlotte, I'm a panther fan.

Painful game to sit through. I would rather be consistenlty bad than wade through the unkown week to week wondering which team is going to show up on Sunday. Congrats to your rookie head coach & QB making ours look like 9th grade JV second stringers.

Watching the game
I've noticed something similar with my Ravens. When I remember to wear purple scrubs to work, they win. When I fail, they come tantalizingly close and then stab me in the heart at the end (Vikings missed FG, pick against the Colts inside 2 minutes, Clayton's dropped pass against the Pats in the final minute).
