I put the picture of Trevor Pryce up.. because he, above all else.. has to be the happiest person on the team right now. He single-handedly turned a FG into a TD for the Lions, and instead of a tie game.. Detroit was up by 3. I'm not gonna kill Trev`Pry (because other than today, he's looked solid) but it was a boneheaded penalty.
Lucky win by the Jets, but I'll take it. Game ball goes to Revis & Folk.
Though the offense is (right now) playing somewhat below average.. our defense is playing way above. 14 TD's allowed going into Week 10?! I love it! Keep it up boys.
Looking ahead; It's nice to be #1 in the Division.. win 6 out of 8 games.. and all that jazz. But Gang Green has to clean up some stuff as the season progresses, if they want to become serious Superbowl contenders. *The Offense -&- *The Penalties.
..although I maintain that about 50% of the flags getting thrown against us are borderline at best, the other half are completely obvious. Meanwhile, the offense is averaging about 20 points per game. This is why the Jets continue to squeak out these wins, because despite the offense playing sub'par.. the 'D is playing great.
We're at midway point now, with 8 games to go. If the Jets go .500 the rest of the way, they'll be 10-6.. which (given the cluster-fvck in the AFC) may still be enough to back into the playoffs. I feel as though, 5 more wins will get them into the posteason. 6 or more will definitely get them in. (not to mention possibly the Division) 1 game at a time though.
looks like LT is starting 2 come back down 2 earth
Not at all.. he's just proving his versatility as a receiving back.
I've said this since May, and it bears repeating.. San Diego FORGOT how to use LT. LaDainian at this point of the year.. has more receiving yrds with the Jets, than he had the entire season (including playoffs) with the Chargers last year!! He's on pace for 400 receiving yrds for 2010. He had 150 in 2009.
..and as far as rushing goes, he's still on pace for a 1,200 yrd season.. and he's still averaging 5 yrds per carry.
With Tomlinson, you have to look at the; "all-purpose" category (rushing & receiving) when you're trying to calculate his yrds. Currently.. he has nearly 800 in 8 games. I'll take that everyday of the week.. twice on Sundays.
Jets get another lucky win handed to them by a crappy team. They could easily be 4-4 right now with losses to Denver AND Detroit.
Charlie Whitehurst.. Shaun Hill.. Caleb Hanie.. Todd Collins.. Matt Moore.. Drew Stanton.. Jon Kitna..
...........probably the 7 best quarterbacks in the league right now, if you were to ask me.
