Sunday Recap

- The Jets were completely outplayed at the line of scrimmage yesterday - on both sides if the ball - and the results were a one sided loss to the Patriots (for a change). Gang Green couldn't run or protect Chad Pennington and failed to score once Pennington left the game with an injured ankle.

If the line cannot block or create holes, it's going to be a long season.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Jets could not pressure Tom Brady. He had all the time in the world to find mismatches with a suddenly rejuvenated Randy Moss who had 78 catches for 15,000 yards. Revis looked pretty impressive though.

- Pedro was slightly better in start 2 (still can't throw very hard) and is now 2-0 since returning from the major shoulder surgery. How effective he can be for the stretch run remains to be seen, but the fact is his presence gives the team an undeniable boost.

Tom Glavine's numbers in his last 15 starts are extremely good. I honestly had no idea how well he was pitching.

Big 6 games coming up for the Mets. Good showings against the Braves and Phillis at home can put the NL East race away for good and all the Mets to be rested and healthy for the playoffs.

- Fantasy update - You had to know the Jetropolitans were in trouble when the inactive bench outscored to starters, the stud running back had a whopping 0 fantasy points, and the kicker actually LOST the team 2 points. even my stud first defensive pick failed me. a disaster all around. And Orlando Pace's injury impacts not one but TWO of my major offensive players. Is it too early to concede the season?
