    Calm down. The Jets squeaked past the Bills, they didn’t beat a top team. The Jets are still a franchise in disarray and troubled. Don’t get your hopes up.

    Why exactly are they in disarray? They have another top 5 defense and a young QB who can sling it. Not only that, but Wilkerson and Richardson are still pups.

    And after all the hand-wringing over the so-called “circus”, they’ve been in every game they’ve played in this season and took two out of three? What more can you ask of them?

    Oh right, Sanchez wears a headband…they’re clearly in disarray, etc.

  3. Just checked the list of sack leaders for the season. The 1st Jet on the list is @ 17th.
    There are three teams with two guys ahead of 17th. KC, IND, DAL, so KC, IND or DAL sack exchange maybe. New York?? Yeah not so much.

    Calm down brother. While its nice to see the DEF getting pressure on a 4 man rush. I wouldn’t start comparing them to the likes of Gastineau and Klecko just yet. When Wilk and Richardson put up 20+ sack seasons then we can talk.

    The Jets are doing better then I thought for what should be a rebuilding year, new QB/offense, but I wouldn’t claim a playoff run just yet.

  5. The Jets get credit for winning obviously but they are bad. Better with Geno than Mark for sure but you can’t seriously think they are good. average teams are awesome if you like average. have fun with that. dbag

  6. No phase of the Eagles’ game has been impressive. 5-13 going back to the start of last season. Why would the state of the NFC East work well for the Eagles? They’re second only by default and they have Vick under center. One more loss and Vick’s record as an Eagles starter is .500 and I don’t see them winning in Denver next week.

  7. Quick thinking by Delanie walker helped them avoid an interception huh? You failed to mention that if he’d simply caught the pass that hit him right in his hands while he was streaking wide open down the field then there would’ve been no need to prevent an interception. Awful drop.
