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.

It may help (or not!) to remember that the jets barely won a number of games in the last minute of the game against teams that are not all that great. Before they played the pats two weeks ago they had only one win against a team with a winning record, that being the pats in week two. Broncos, browns, lions and Texans all are bad teams, and the jets all won those games by the skin of their teeth. I think that masqueraded some fundamental flaws in their game, that being Sanchez is a 2nd year QB who is not quite there yet. Also, I think Rex does more harm than good with some of his talk, building expectations a bit too high.

But what do i know, I'm an evil Patriots fan. :)

I beg to differ on the Lions being a bad team. A team that hasn't really learned how to finish, yes. But not a bad team.

I feel you on the nervousness GRRM. The Colts season is riding on the divisional match up against Jacksonville this Sunday. Peyton needs to be Peyton, and they need to get a lead early so as to minimize the impact of MoJo Drew.
