Okay so I know that I haven’t updated in awhile so I will try to be more regular with this. I will talk about the offseason so far and what I see happening. First of all the Tebow trade was the WORST pick up we could have done. I know people aren’t pro Sanchez but sadly hes our QB. I get that the Jets went after Manning and I understand that. Peyton is CLEARLY a better QB then Sanchez and I cant defend Mark on that one. I knew we wouldn’t get him due to the price he wanted and how much cap space we had. After that fell through Mark gets an extension and I figure we move on. Now Tebow gets picked up as a “backup” QB? Firstly he was bought in to sell tickets and merch. He doesn’t improve our team nor does he make it any better. He is a sub par QB with no arm what so ever. I don’t want to hear the Tebow just wins games, well so does Sanchez. If you do some research he is 27-20 in his career and happens to be 4-2 in the playoffs with back to back AFC Title games. Tebow isn’t even up there in Sanchez numbers. He is well below him. Tebow was a strictly marketing plot to give the team headlines. On to the possibility of Hard Knocks part 2. Its been done before and lets not do it. Its not a smart idea to do and history shows that the team that does it does not win the whole thing. The Jets love to upstage the Giants for headlines and all that in this area. The Jets sadly make headlines for all the wrong reasons while the Giants get them for WINNING. Lets just keep quiet and make headlines for winning games and winning the Super Bowl. The Jets will have to draft an Offensive linemen is not a few because the line is horrible. Also have to draft a linebacker or two, a safety and a bull rushing defensive linemen. We need to produce pressure on the QB to disrupt the timing they have.

So the Jets season is officially over and now I have to just sit back and enjoy some football without any bias. I think I can appreciate that I can just watch a game and not know it’s my team doing well or not. This article is my playoff preview that I will do before every round of the tournament. This weekend is the 4 games of the wildcard round.
4:30 Bengals at Texans in a rematch of the regular season match up. The Texans won that game on a last second TD from the Texans in Cincinnati. I don’t see this being the same thing as the first meeting. I think the Texans have too many injuries and only got into the playoffs because the division was so weak. Texans aren’t the same team they were since Matt Schaub got hurt. I am taking the Bengals in this one but I can’t say it’s an upset.
8 has Lions at Saints in yet another rematch. Unlike the other games this weekend I see this one being high scoring and a lot of offense. Saints have the better offense I think due to how deep they are in the receivers they have for Drew Brees. They also have the edge in that they are playing in the SuperDome which is known for the noise levels they create. Let’s not forget he holds the record for most yards passing in one season. I think the Lions are too young and just shoot themselves every week due to stupid penalties. I think the Saints will win. It won’t be by a lot but it will be a win and high scoring. WHO DAT
1 has Falcons at Giants from MetLife stadium. Falcons have the wildcard this year and won’t have the comforts of playing in the Georgia Dome. The Falcons are interesting in that no one really talks about them so they don’t have a lot of hype surrounding them. Julio Jones is a huge play maker for them with his ability to break free. The Giants I think have the better offense and defense. We know about the pass rush which does hide the terrible secondary they have. The offense is prolific in how easily they can score. Giants in a close one I think.
4:30 has Steelers at Broncos and this is an interesting one. I am so sick and tired of the hype of Tebow. I am a Florida State guy and never liked Tebow since his college days. I will never ever root for him. His offense can’t score on command like other teams. They are low scoring and have a decent defense. On the other side we know all about the smash mouth Steeler defense. They form tackle and bring HEAVY blitz packages. The Steeler offense is also big play worthy and has a more balanced offense. I think the Tebow story ends Sunday in Denver. Not high scoring but he will be held in check. I am stalking the Steelers in this one.

So after the three game skid to end the season the Jets can’t make a magical run to the Super Bowl. A lot has been said about Santonio Holmes due to his ego. He was seen arguing in the huddle during the closing seconds of the Dolphins game with team mates. This past week 3rd string QB Greg McElroy said in an interview on an Alabama radio station that this was the most dysfunctional locker room he was a part of. He didn’t see certain people care if we won or lost just about their own stats. First off you are a 3rd string QB for a reason. You couldn’t beat out Burnell for backup and were the 3rd string guy. Secondly you DIDN’T PLAY a single game all year due to you being on IR. You have to be a part of the season and taking reps with the team to talk about the locker room. You may have seen things going on but the fact you weren’t a part of the season you can’t have an opinion. You are the low man on the totem pole and aren’t viewed as high as vets. Even Ryan Clark the starting cornerback from the Steelers said McElroy shouldn’t be talking about the locker room. Although I can see that Rex put in the mind set of talking to the media but the fact someone like that would talk. Just keep your mouth shut and PRAY you have a job with the Jets next year.

I figure write this while all my ideas are still in my head. Jets laid an egg tonight in Philly. The ONLY bright spot of tonight was the special teams. They didn’t turn over the ball and gave the jets good field position all night. Defense couldn’t stop a nose bleed to save themselves. Vick threw all over us and once again hurt us with a tight end. Eric Smith isn’t a good safety at all and has to go. The defense didn’t take away the edges to keep Vick contained at all. He ran all over us and even got a TD against the “vaunted” jets defense! McCoy dropped 100 yards rushing on us and 3 touchdowns. While that helped me in fantasy football it was pathetic against the jets. Offense was a flat out joke tonight. Schotty did nothing to help Sanchez out with the protection. Hunter and Ducasse can’t play football at all and it was showed. Babin destroyed the right side of the line which is where Woody use to play. PUT A GOD DAMN TIGHTEND OVER THERE TO HELP OUT!!!! They had free rushers taking shots at Sanchez all night. Today’s goat is Holmes because of his bone headed plays. Now some people including myself can’t fault him on the fumble because the guy came flying it and hit the ball with his helmet. The touchdown celebration was uncalled for and should be punished. This crap HAS to end now because this team won’t go far in the playoffs playing like this. Schotty has a game plan that works and just gets rid of it. I read online this past Friday that Miami may be interested in Schotty I think any fan can hope he is taken.

This one may spark a controversy but I think it’s worth talking about. A lot of people have gotten on Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson for his play this year. He has averaged 1,000 yards and 5 TD’s in each of his first 3 years. This year he is supposed to be under both those numbers. I may be one of the few people to defend him on this topic. First look at how badly the Eagles screwed him over. He was drafted 49th overall back 2008 by the Eagles. Over the next 3 years he has shown he can produce in the NFL time and time again. We all remember the Miracle at the NEW Meadowlands when he took that punt back. This year he wanted a new contract but the Eagles would give him one. He came to camp and said he would play to show he deserves one but other things changed. They signed Asmougha, Rodgers-Cromartie, Young, Jenkins and Brown. They all took decent contracts to come and play. As Jackson id be sitting there saying well I’ve have been with this team for 3 years and produced. These guys can just walk in and take all that money? He is annoyed at the team. Secondly I believe they aren’t using him correctly. At the NFL combine in 2008 he ran a 4.35 40 yard dash. That same year Chris Johnson ran a 4.25 40 so Desean has some speed in him. What they should be doing is telling him to go on a long streak up the sideline and bomb a deep ball to him. With his speed all he has to do is adjust to the ball and get it. During the course of the year I have seen him on little short routes which is not what he should be used for. He is a deep threat with speed I don’t think anyone can touch. Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis had 4.38 40 time at his pro day in 2007. Desean Jackson may be one of the fastest guys in the NFL today yet they aren’t using him for the deep threat.
With 12 weeks of NFL football over with. Here are some coaching changes I believe will be made during the offseason. Included will be already fired head coach Jack Del Rio. I predicted he would be gone last year but they kept him on a year too long.
Jack Del Rio – As a head coach he went 68-71 over 9 nines and 1-2 in the playoffs. He never led the Jaguars to a division title in his time there. I truly believed he would be gone after last season but I was mistaken. They haven’t had a winning record since 2007 and I felt his time was up.
Tom Coughlin – I apologize to any Giants fan reading this. If this season ends without a playoff berth I truly believe he will be gone. After last year’s debacle where they gave up a 21 point lead to the Eagles then took a complete beat down by the Packers, I truly thought he would be gone. The Giants kept him on staff but I think this is going to be it. As I said IF this team doesn’t make the playoffs for a third straight year. Ever since the Super Bowl run they had in 2007 here is what the Giants have done. 2008 they finished first in the NFC East and overall 1 seed in the playoffs with a 12-4 record. They were one and done in the divisional round of the playoffs verse the Philadelphia Eagles. 2009 they finish 3rd in the NFC East with an 8-8 record and 2010 finished second in the NFC East with a 10-6 record. It should be noted 2009 and 2010 they failed to make the playoffs after late season collapses.
Andy Reid – Yes I said good ole Andy Reid. In the regular season he is an amazing 122-81 but in the post season he is only 10-9. He is known to have great teams through the years but this year was supposed to be magical. He had a “dream team” of players and I thought would at least make the playoffs. At 4-8 they are all but done now. He also made an offensive line coach his defensive coordinator. He should have just called me up to run the defense. I need a job Andy, hook me up man! He was known for going to 5 NFC Championship games in his tenure. That is an impressive stat but at 1-4 I wouldn’t be talking about that. He also lost the only Super Bowl he ever went to.
Mike Shanahan – In only his second year with Washington he has done NOTHING to improve that team. He basically pushed Mcnabb and Haynesworth out the door when he got there. He wanted nothing to do with Mcnabb and it was evident all season long. Shanahan may have had a point though due to the fact Mcnabb is current unemployed. He never used Haynesworth to his strengths, Shanahan wanted a yes sir kind of guy and Albert wasn’t going to do that. I think they will be fed up due to the fact they have been terrible both these years.
