Oh, My Poor Jets

jets 1
Yes, they won today. They beat the Arizona Cardinals 7-6.

In all my years of watching NFL football, I don't think I ever seen a more dreadful game. I suppose I could argue that both defenses played wonderfully, but no, the offenses stank up the joint.

I had to keep looking at the sideline shots to make sure Rich Kotite hadn't come sneaking back to coach the Jets again. But no, that was still Rex Ryan.

After Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions, Rex finally pulled him and put in Greg McElroy, who threw for the Jets only score. McElroy did energize the crowd, but he did not exactly light up the joint. It was mostly Shonn Green and the running game that moved the ball.

Will it be Sanchez, McElroy, or Tebow next week? No idea. I doubt Rex knows either.

Sigh. Suffering is the lot of the Jets fan. It's all because Joe Willie made that deal with Satan at the crossroads...

Man, I was hoping that you weren't watching that game. We turned on the TV and saw that it was 3-0, Arizona, in the middle of the 3rd quarter, and just had that sinking feeling. What a shitshow.

Hmm
Well, my Good-doer Patriots just clinched the AFC East and there isn't much to say... especially since nothing was said last week after their win...

Take heart, you could be a Lions fan. My team finds new and interesting ways to loose every week.

BIG congrats on the halfway point! The GQ quote has made my year.

It's the owner. The organization is poorly run. Woody needs to change or ownership needs to change.

Do you think Tebow's ribs will be in good enough shape for them to put him in next week?

It could be worse. Norv Turner could be roaming the sidelines...

And the Jets still have a shot at making the playoffs -- look at the Giants last year. And once you make the playoffs (again, Giants in 2012), you never know what could happen...

If I was a Jets fan, I'd feel a little optimistic after that game. Mainly because after seeing Ryan Lindley play, I can look at Mark Sanchez and say "it could be worse!"

I'm in too much mourning, as the only niners fan that actually likes Smith and Kaepernick, and then to have such a disappointing loss, and such a season, when after last season it looket like we had finally put it together.

It kind of has to be Tebow now, doesn't it? I mean, I suppose Rex could go back to Sanchez, but Mark's struggles against the Cards weren't exactly a startling revelation. Unless they really believe in this rookie (which I doubt) they should get a look at Tebow.

At least you have another team to turn to when the other takes a dump. While I should be happy for our record I still can't believe we let the steelers with third 3rd QB off the hook....

At least there wasn't a butt fumble.

And you have something to look forward to.... TEBOW IS COMING

I have a cousin that is a foreign national and lives on the other side of the Atlantic. We write one another frequently and about 12 years ago he became a Patriots fan. He tells me the process was accidental, yet I have a sneaking suspicion it was just so we would have one thing to bicker about. My being a Ravens fan and all.

We were going over this weekends results and the Jets came up. I kind of like the Jets, even if they compete in the AFC. Both of us agree that you guys, the fans, are in a world of pain right now.

I hope Ryan is able to clean that offense up this year so they can play some real ball.

Tebow? Maybe. If they don't play the guy after he heals then the should at least trade him somewhere where they'd use him. Carolina?

I don't know is going on with Sanchez at all.
