Two for the Win Column

Life is magical and full of joy? Well, that may be overstating the case this weekend. Let's just say life is tolerable and full of hope.

By which I mean, hell yes, the Giants and the Jets both won this week, and that was good. But neither win was convincing enough to have me turning cartwheels. The Giants beat the Rams in London, and the Jets beat the Ravens at home. Neither of those teams is exactly a powerhouse this season, however, and both games were a lot closer than I would have liked or hoped.

The Giant offense was supposed to be lights out this year with Eli and three terrific wideouts, but it looked anemic yesterday. Big Blue has no running game whatsoever. The highlight of the game in London was an insane pick six runback by Landon Collins that changed the whole momentum of the game. Aside from that, and one cool catch by ODB, there wasn't much.

As for Gang Green, well, this was the week that Geno Smith got his starting qb jon back. He held on to it for almost a quarter before an injury sent him back to the sidelines, and brought Fitz back in again. Good thing Fitz did not get hurt, since neither one of the young Jet quarterbacks was active. The win broke the losing streak, which is good, but at 2-5 the Jets have little or no chance of making the playoffs, so I think the debate over whether Fitz or Geno should start next week is pointless. It's time to give Petty and Hackenberg some playing time, to see if either of them is the long awaited savior Jets fans have been waiting for since Joe Willie.

I feel sad for Geno. His contract expires at the end of the year, so this is probably the end of his tenure as a Jet.

Looks like they are going back to Fitz. But unless he can get red hot and rip off a long winning streak, I think we'll be seeing Petty sooner rather than later.

Give Fitz a chance!
I am with "The Machine" B. Marsh. they need to stay on the ship with Fitzpatrick. Last year he was great, it seems like this time round his communication with his receivers minus the down field threat in Decker and an addition of a once great back in Matt Forte has been off. That defense when it is on can stop anybody, there is still hope but the season is over as soon as you hand the reigns to a rookie when the league is in mid season and other teams have gelled, nothing but a confidence breaker for most newbies. Trust in the Fitz his future is on the line so he has to give it his all.
