The NFL Returns

Football is back!!!

And life is... full of joys and pain, ups and downs.

My beloved Jets played the despised Cowboys in the season's first Sunday night game, and played... ah... not nearly as well as I would have hoped. Though there were high points. Revis, of course. Plaxico Burress looked pretty good for a guy who has been in prison the past two years. Dustin Keller was great, as always, and LaDamian Tomlinson had a few good moments. Even so, the Cowboys came to play, their Rob Ryan D was much tougher than I had expected, and Dallas looked to have the game wrapped up early in the fourth quarter.

Fortunately, their QB is still Tony Romo. Who played really well for most of the game, as he often does, only to commit some truly horrendous mistakes at the worst possible times, as he often does. Thereby losing the game. Which is what happened tonight, giving the Jets a great if improbable victory. I really do need to buy a cardiac defibrillator in Jets green; I swear, this team is going to kill me one of these nights.

Revis deserves a lot of credit for the Jets win. So does Mike Westoff, Joe McKnight, and the Trufant kid who ran in the blocked punt for a TD. Oh, and Jim Leonhard, who ran down what would have been the Cowboys' game-clinching TD and knocked the runner out of bounds inside the five, setting up the crucial Romo fumble that started the tide to turning.

But mostly of the credit goes to Romo.

As for the Giants... sigh... the less said, the better. They got embarrassed by the Redskins and Rex Grossman, f'r chrissakes. How humiliatin'. It could be a long season for Big Blue.

But hey... football is back!!

Ser Sanchez and Ser Brady
Howdy George,

Thank the gods the NFL and the players straitened out how to divide 9 billion dollars and we have football.

I hope you are enjoying Ser Sanches and Ser Brady bashing it out on the 40 yard line that I gave you at the Burlington signing. Though if Rex gets his way he would have someone else take on Ser Brady. I am sure both you and Rex will be rooting for the Fins tonight.

Congrats to the Jets for the win last night. I personally love close games so long as the good guys come out on top. The ups and downs of a hard fought game make football the best spectator sport going. Blowouts are boring no matter who wins.

I am a life long Pats fan (insert boos and hisses and cheater remarks here). With the Colts out of the division for a decade now, (has it really been a decade...) Gang Green can try to knock us of the top of the AFC East hill.

Rivalry makes a great game better still.

Good luck to your Jets next week.
