The Jets win the Super Bowl!

So if the Jets were approaching their Week Two game against the Patriots like it was the Super Bowl, where’s the damn silver trophy?

The New York Jets ended an eight-game home losing streak to the Pats on Sunday, knocking off their bitter AFC East rivals for the second straight time, 16-9.  (The Jets beat the Pats on a Thursday night last November, after the Pats won the first game between the two at New York.)

For New England quarterback Tom Brady, the loss is his first in the regular season since being shut out by the Dolphins in December 2006.  Brady completed 23 of 47 passes for 216 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception.

The pick came by cornerback Darrelle Revis, who blanketed New England receiver Randy Moss all day.  He finished with only four receptions for 24 yards.  Rookie Julian Edelman, who played extensively due to a knee injury that prevented Wes Welker from playing, caught eight passes for 98 yards.

Brady has now thrown 100 passes in two games, which puts him on pace for 800 for the season — 109 more than the all-time single-season record of 691, which was set 15 years ago by Drew Bledsoe.
 
For the Jets, rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez completed 14 of 22 passes for 163 yards and a touchdown.  The fifth overall pick in the 2009 draft is now 2-0.

So, yeah, they didn’t win the Super Bowl.  (Yet.)  But the Jets already are moving in the right direction toward the ultimate prize.

    Let me get this straight… save for a muffed kickoff return the Pats could be 0-2. I love it.

    Cue the Patsies apologists…

  3. TheWizard says: Sep 20, 2009 4:33 PM

    Jets were better today.
    New England wasn’t good in any aspect, though holding them to 16 gets the defense a C.
    That’s not the Patriots team you’ll see every week.

    Sorry Cheatriots fans.
    You can forget about 19-0 this year.
    You can also forget 16-0
    Heck, you may as well give up all hope for 18-1
    There is a new king in the AFC East, and they are led by Belicheats owner, Rex Ryan.
    Overrated Patriots 1-1 (should be 0-2)
    HAHAHA, gotta love it!
    Rex Ryan schooled the so called “genius”

  6. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Sep 20, 2009 4:35 PM

    The words Super Bowl shouldn’t even be mentioned in passing. It’s just one game. A big one nonetheless, but come on, Super Bowl???
    If this keeps up will comparisions be made to Joe Namath?

  7. leatherneck says: Sep 20, 2009 4:39 PM

    Bellichek doesn’t seem to care anymore. Where’s the running game? Where’s the defense?
    Brady is very good but no NFL team can throw the ball 50 times a game and win consistently. The last throw of the game for Brady was off his back foot. He was under pressure. The ball didn’t get to his receiver on time, and the Pats failed to convert on 4th down.
    The Jets look good this year.

    Are you realy that stupid, overrated after 2 wks, Dumbass!!!! I seem to remember the Bills starting 4-0 last yr and we know how that ended.
    Its only 2 games lets not get carried away.

  9. vastarray says: Sep 20, 2009 4:42 PM

    Mike,
    I’m a jets fan that was relatively unhappy with a lot of your comments about the Jets during the offseason, preseason, and leading up to todays game.
    However I understood your points, there were valid question marks sitting atop a couple of very important positions (QB, WR, maybe another one or two positions depending on who you ask).
    I must say though Mike that you’ve got a very fair analytical and questioning mind when it comes to analyzing this very unpredictable sport.
    That being said, the Jets are off to a very good start and it doesn’t get any easier with the Titans and Saints in these next two weeks.

  10. Facts Domino says: Sep 20, 2009 4:44 PM

    Did Brady call his shot this time?

  11. 4+28=2SB says: Sep 20, 2009 4:46 PM

    The Patriots are not who we thought they were.

  12. stanjam says: Sep 20, 2009 4:49 PM

    The Patriots stunk up the field today. The inability to finish drives killed them. They had to settle for FGs. Brady looks awful. Looks like he is scared to step into passes. I am starting to worry that the knee injury is really affecting him mentally. If that doesn’t change the Patriots are in trouble. He also needs more protection.
    Defensively they played pretty well until for some reason they started letting up in the second half.
    The Jets though, I wouldn’t be so ready to crown them anything yet. They really didn’t play all that well. They are much improved, but they are certainly not winning any superbowls unless they improve a lot more.
    It’s a long season. If Brady can get his act together the Pats will still be in this. I just wonder at this point if he is going to be able to.
    The Pats need some confidence building. A good lopsided win to get them back into things.
    Oh, and I think that having two of our best players out certainly hurt them. With Mayo and/or Welker out there I think we have a different game. Edelman replaced Welker today. I think if Welker were out there the Pats probably would have won, but he wasn’t. (about a big of a wish as the idiotic comment of “should be 0-2).
    And the penalties. My god they were awful.

  13. bearsrule says: Sep 20, 2009 4:49 PM

    Christ, ESPN will be insufferable tommorrow? Is Sanchez the greatest rookie of all time? Was it the biggest win in NFL history? etc, etc, etc.

  14. snnyjcbs says: Sep 20, 2009 4:56 PM

    It may not have been the Super Bowl but between the Bills and Jets they have both showed that New England is not the team all the brown noses in the media would like you to think.
    In decline since the thumping by the Giants in the Super Bowl. They are lacking on both sides of the ball. The 80’s San Francisco team was very good but went bye bye with the great players and with the great players Bill Walsh’s genuis, groundhog Day in New England.

  15. nflqb says: Sep 20, 2009 5:00 PM

    The pats are a shell of what they once were , but it will take the medi 12 weeks to figure that out, they just want 2007 all over again…. brady will be exposed for what he really is, a prduct of a sytem that allows any qb to put up numbers, just ask matt cassel.
    if brady is asked to move 2 feet to the left or right, he becomes trent dilfer.

  16. nflqb says: Sep 20, 2009 5:03 PM

    also, Brady is a classless sore loser, the little sissy ran straight to the locker room and didnt even offer sanchez a pat on the back for schooling him today!

  17. skosh_99 says: Sep 20, 2009 5:05 PM

    Geee Jets fan sure is happy about being a bad (as they say) patriots team. IF the Jets are so good, should they not have won this game? I am sure the Jets will go 19-0. Wow the big fat coach is such a genious. He was just happy about there being no overtime so he could take his fatass back to the buffett. Figure he will die of a heart attack about midseason anyway. Or eat his QB. Please, what have the jets won in the past 30+ years. Nothing! Except this one game. And about 20 top 10 picks.

  18. Joe in Toronto, Canada says: Sep 20, 2009 5:11 PM

    It’s gonna be a tough year for Pats fans, no doubt about it.
    Brady just isn’t right, and won’t be until probably next year, very normal for the injury he had.
    The defence is a shadow of it’s former self. They kept the points down today but really, they’ve lost too many veterans.
    It’s rebuilding time, Pats fans.
    There’s a changing of the guard going on in the AFC. The Pats and Chargers are has beens and the Titans and the Jags are 0-2

  19. cy farnsworth says: Sep 20, 2009 5:25 PM

    skosh_99, don’t be such a little girl. your team lost, deal with it.
    the pats came in sloppy and unprepared for the jets defense, and the noise and intensity exacerbated their problems (maybe there was something to all that trashtalking.)
    also, how about darrelle revis? he’s absolutely shut down two of the best receivers in football on back to back weeks.

    Add Belidick to that list. Sanchez tried to shake his hand and BB just blew him off.

  21. edge312 says: Sep 20, 2009 5:29 PM

    These comments are a joke. I agree that in all likelihood, the Pats should be 0-2, however they got lucky (much like a lot of NFL teams) and played a good Jets team for the loss. If i remember correctly, the Jets beat the Pats early last year, and did a great job in throwing away their playoff chances. Brady played a crappy game, Sanchez looked good in the second half, and it’s also week two. Everyone should save their gloating until halfway through the season until we understand who actually has a playoff hope. My guess by then is not the Jets.

  22. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Sep 20, 2009 5:35 PM

    True there FloriosLawyer, would like to see someone defend that piece of crap Belichecksinthemail blowing Sanchez off. Would it really have hurt to show some sort of good sportmanship?

  23. Ralphie says: Sep 20, 2009 5:37 PM

    The Jets won game. Sanchez looks a lot more experienced than a guy who’s only played 2 pro games. I will say that the Pats looked bad; some of it was obviously caused by the Jets, but some of it was self-induced also and Brady isn’t sharp yet. The Jets still earned the win. There’s still 14 games to go so anything can happen…it’s a long season. With Favre last year you expected the Jets to break down at some point in the season and they didn’t disappoint, that outlook looks less certain with Sanchez, he looks like a keeper. If they stay healthy they are a force in the AFC (big “if” with so many games to go however). What will be interesting is how the Jets offense plays against a similar defense like their own when they play Baltimore in a few weeks. That will tell you how good Sanchez can be.
    I wouldn’t count the Pats out just yet however. Lot of football still to be played. Brady will come around sooner than most think.

  24. DynastyDriven says: Sep 20, 2009 5:37 PM

    No Welker…
    No Mayo…
    and a 7 point win at home by the Jets…
    I wonder if there will be a ticker tape parade in downtown NY tomorrow???

  25. skosh_99 says: Sep 20, 2009 5:40 PM

    Calling it how it is, is being a girl? Weird.

  26. redsquare says: Sep 20, 2009 5:42 PM

    I don’t have a particular interest in either team, but so many Pats fans here have been SO smug and dismissive and cocky that I felt the need to stop in and say:
    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
    Now please excuse me while I go rub some Eagles’ fans faces in it, too. Those two groups, plus the Steelers bandwagon-jumpers, are the worst around at the moment.

  27. ingreenmts says: Sep 20, 2009 5:42 PM

    Last year you Patsy lovers said just wait until Brady gets back. Well the Jets did. And he SUCKS! Time for Bellicheater to kiss the f-balls of REX.

    Again its two wks, remember last yr everyone was saying the same thing about Manning last yr after his surg. As the season goes on Brady will get his timing down. And to say there lacking on both sides of the ball again is stupid after 2 games, in 2 games the D hasnt allowed a 200 yrd passer or a single back to rush for 100 yrds and 17 points in 1 gm and 16 in the second, again a little 2 early but HATE ON HATER, HATER ON………………

  30. JetsFan85 says: Sep 20, 2009 6:05 PM

    You know what the problem is with the Patsies fans? They forgot how to lose like men. Oh:”No welker, no mayo, and we lose by…” Well ok no Sheppard, no Strickland, and we had Bart Scott covering receivers towards the end of the game. Injuries happen and they happened to us as well.
    The truth is the Pats came in unprepared and they did not achieve.
    The truth is that Belichick is the most unclassy guy in the NFL: 1. Cheater, 2. Runs up scores, 3. I remember him refusing to shake hands with Coughlin what a baby!
    The truth is that it’s only week two, but the pats should be 0-2 if the Bills could close.
    Whoever commented saying: the pats played a so so game while the jets played like their jobs were on the line… uhhhhh yea their jobs are on the line, and if the pats didnt bring it to the game that’s their mistake.
    And Florio: That one line comment: “The jets haven’t beaten any really good teams” – maybe they just made two good teams look bad. I remember you talking up the texans the entire offseason and we all know you’re a patsies fan.
    Let’s lose with dignity please?

    Give the Jesters their due: they came out and “embarassed” the Patriots (any loss to the Jest qualifies as such) and executed their game plan.
    However, I think the reports of the Pats demise and a changing of the guard in the AFC East are VERY premature. Perhaps this was the wake up call the Pats needed, and the Jesters put all their eggs in the beat the Patriots basket. Are in for a major let down next week? wouldn’t surprise me.

    The Jets high pressure defense kept Brady and the Pats offense out of sync most of the game. The Pats inability to score TDs in the redzone killed them.

    The season is far from over. I am looking forward for the next match between these two teams. I just hope the Jets can at least go 3-1 in the 1st 4 games. If they can do that, the rest of their schedule shouldn’t be too hard. Of course no one knows what could happen, but as it looks now, we are in good shape.

    Credibility?? Neither do any of you moronic Pats fans here. The brainwashing of the New England fan base is hilarious. Face it, your teams are on the decline…now it’s time for you all to crawl back in those closets that you all were hiding in pre 2001.
    GFY, LOSER.
