Feetsball

G-men
Back at home with the NFL. But weekends like this wear me out.

The Jets game was a horror. Bad enough that they lost to a mediocre Miami team they should have dominated. It was how they lost. Sanchez seems to have reverted to his rookie ways, throwing INTs every time he had the ball. Santonio dropped a sure TD. I think the Patriots game has robbbed Gang Green of their mojo, which does not bode well for the remainder of the season, with the Steelers and the Bears coming up. I am starting to have flashbacks to the great collapse of '86. Rex, Rex, work your magic, I can't take that again.

As for Big Blue, well, the Giants thumped a lifeless Vikings team playing without Brett Favre. The defense and the running game looked good. Eli, not so much. Two terrible INTs right out of the box. And now we have to play the Eagles on a short week. We haven't beaten the Eagles in what seems like decades. Time to end that streak. But if Eli keeps throwing the ball to guys in the wrong color jersey, it won't be easy.

As a Jets fan, what was your take on the tripping incident with the strength and conditioning coach?

Disgraceful. Guy must be an idiot.

It reminded me of the incident when Woody Hayes stepped on the field and punched a member of the opposing team.

Then again, why was the Miami player running up the field that far out of bounds? The coach was dumb, but so was the player.

As is the case on many punts like that, he wasn't trying to run that far out of bounds but when you're running down field to keep outside contain, it doesn't take much of a push to send a guy of course and if you watch the video the gunner was shoved out of bounds where the "wall" of Jets coaches was standing

Were they told to do that? Forming the wall is debatably OK. Tripping is not. Glad he got fined and suspended.

I think that the people who are the most shocked by the incident are Jets fans. It was more disrespectful to the Jets and their fans than to Miami (in my opinion). What do I know though? I am a Cowboys fan... which I hope doesn't defeat the legitimacy of my statement.
