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.

A sincere, thanks.
Mr. Martin, Im sorry people being dicks to you about your craft. They must not realize the amount of organization and attention to detail it takes to have seamless stories. Its been a privilege to read your work. Like many others, I am a lover of your world in ASOIAF. I, too, look forward to having questions answered. I would rather wait for a masterpiece, than have a halfassed book. So, fuck everyone thats heckling you. Its your artwork, maester of story telling. I look forward to reading the next installment...at your leisure.

Sincerely, Amanda DiNatale

While I appreciate the sentiments and support, I do wish that everyone would remember to stay on topic. This is a football topic.

Thanks.
