Gang Green Lights Up The Frozen Tundra

Dominating performance by the Jets today on offense, defense and special teams.

They crushed Green Bay from the opening gun, survived a poor third period, and won 38-10 at historic Labeau. A couple of missed penalties by the refs (2 blatant pass interference cnon-alls that I can think of) did not mar the outcome.

The Jets were magnificent in the first half, scoring four touchdowns and an FG on their five possessions. Chad Pennington realy knows how to manage a game - making his poorer decisions only after the Jets had a huge lead.

Once again, the Jets defense did a much better job of stopping the run. Bryan Thoman continues to evelove and Kerry Rhodes, quiet most of the game, had another pick.

All in all the most impressive win of the season and perhaps one of the most impressive wins of the last several seasons.

One more note - the offensive line looks better every game. With the exception of pete Kendall, everyone on the line is young - which bodes well for the future of the line and the offense. Speaking of improvement, Jerricho Cotchery is turning himself into an elite receiver.

Good game all around.


  • Good game for the Jets. Heartbreaking loss for the Giants. 4 losses in a row. It really stinks to be a Giants fan now. Jets actually have a better record 7-5 vs 6-6.

    And you got Glavine back for one more year.

  • RT Anthony Clement is not young.

  • My bad on Clement - But truth me told, Clemet is a replaceable part. The Jets run left at Kendall Brick or they go up the middle.

    Bell - Giants have been free falling for weeks and have submarined my fantasy season too. In my opinion, the Cowboys are the team to beat in the NFC right now - I don;t think Chicago can win with Grossman - he will kill them in the playoffs when mistakes are magnified.

  • How 'bout dem Cowboys? First time in a while it's been fun to be a fan (you only had one down year, or 37 depending on how you count), though I think we deserve Romo for all of the pain of the Quincy Carter years.

    Honestly, poking around here a bit post-"outing", I'm most annoyed that you finally started playing fantasy sports & didn't count me in.

    I get to choose an identity? Talk about pressure! Maybe I'll come up with something a little more clever another day.

  • IT'S DB - the friend who Joe outed me to!! Welcome welcome.

    As it happens, I think the Cowboys are the odds on favorite to come out of a very very weak NFC - Rex Grossman is an absolute mess out there and the Cowboys don't really have any glaring flaws (if we overlook the fact that you have absolutely no legitimate reason for rooting for a team from Dallas when you are from NY - frontrunner pig).

    But I digress....

  • Perhaps DB can take over Elster's fantasy team, which is now all been eliminated from contention.

  • Hmmm, is this the point in the season where I intentionally start tanking so Joe cannot win?

    Besides, if DB took over my team he'd be picking up Julious Jones, Whitten and anyone else with a star on their helmets.

  • Tou have already been tanking games, particularly by starting Lawrence Maroney at RB.

    In any event, you only have one remaining game against Akiva or Phan. Fortunately, there is a mechanism in place to prevent tanking, and/or one-sided trades.

  • Maroney was a smart gamble. I knew he was going to get hurt in the first Q?
