A Gratifying NY Jets Win

It has been a great day for New York Football!

First of all, Gang Green beats the Miami Dolphins; 40-13!!

The NY Jets are the Rodney Dangerfield's of the NFL. I'm mean seriously, they get no respect. They get no respect in the NFL, ever. Mostly ignored on t.v. by the talking sports heads and the NY press is always negative about them.

Here they are, with the better record, albeit a 2-9 record-not exactly noteworthy, but at least better than Miami, who are win-less this season at 0-12. And what team is picked as the underdogs?

The Jets. By a one-point spread. But as Curtis Sliwa always says "You couldn't be more wrong". Today I think the Jets earned some respect in creaming the Dolphins. I know that they have some problems on both sides of the ball, I'm not in la-la land here, but they have potential on the roster, so I am always optimistic.

It was a very gratifying win.

Secondly, the NY Giants beat the Chicago Bears in the last minutes of the game, they won 21-16. Good to see Eli lead the team to victory after last week's painful loss.

Since I'm on the subject of the NFL, in case you haven't read this column yet written by Jason Whitlock about the death of the Washington Redskins pro-bowl safety, Sean Taylor, read it. Takes all kinds of courage to speak this truth about black on black crimes. Turns out he was right. Two of the suspects had done yard work for Sean and they were surprised to find him at home while they tried to rob him. Very sad.
