Win, Win

Life is... well, tolerable.  On this Sunday, at least.

The Jets and the Giants both won today, but somehow, considering the dismal seasons they've had and the fact that both have long since been eliminated from the post-season, it is hard to summon up a "life is magical and full of joy."

The Jets thumped the Browns pretty solidly.  Our rookie QB Geno Smith looked... okay.  He ran for the winning TD, which was good.  And he didn't throw any interceptions, which was better.  I am so sick of INTs.  Maybe if Gang Green upsets the Dolphins next week to finish 8-8, that will save Rex Ryan's job.  But I doubt it.  I think Rex has been set up to be fired since before the season began.  The new GM doesn't want him.  He wants "his own guy," all the talking heads keep saying.  Pfui.  I don't know who "his own guy" is, but I doubt very much he'd be better than Ryan, who has been the best coach the Jets have had since Bill Parcells.  Firing him would be insane.  Which likely means the Jets will do it.

The Giants won in overtime.  They looked awful, and suffered several more injuries.  I think they have just about to run out of offensive linemen and running backs.  They tried to give away the game several times.  But the Detroit Lions kept giving it back.  Someone had to win eventually, and it turned out to be the Giants, which eliminated the Lions from the playoffs and assured that the G-Men will have a somewhat worse draft choice.

Win, win.

Yay, yay.

Guess I need to wait a little longer for that Subway Superbowl.

Football rant
As a New Yorker and a fan of the 3 "New York" football clubs ( even though there is really only one true NY football team) the Giants and Jets are rife with fundamental issues. The Giants have proved their worth in the new age of football, with nickel and dime defenses and a air raid offense with passing to set up the run; the Jets( whom I am more of a fan, unfortunately) are having myriad problems, for instance running the wildcat offense which is incredibly predictable and ineffective at best. The Giants primary issue is that their offensive line was in shambles, they couldn't protect Eli for anything. The skilled positions on the Giants are proven: Eli can throw; Cruz can catch; and Wilson can run, it mostly lies with the O-line. Once the Giants get that set, they are capable of going 9-7 or 10-6 next season.

The Jets need Rex as a defensive mind and a motivator, getting rid of him would be foolish. The Jets had very little talent going into the season, they could have had Madden and Lombardi coaching them with similar results as Rex. Jets need better receivers and need to develop Geno into a better pocket QB.
