The New York Jets enter the Bye Week at 5-4, a record inconceivable to even the most optimistic of fans before this season. The season has been up and down, something that could be predicted with an inconsistent rookie quarterback, but they have several wins over preseason Super Bowl favorites, such as the Falcons, Patriots, and Saints.
And while we too cannot predict how this consistently random season of win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win-loss-win will go, we should all know one thing: It’s time to make it official and lock up Rex Ryan long term. Continue reading

1. First Texans fans sighting
I have seen 3 Texans games so far and this one was the first where there were a noticeable amount of Texans fans there. They were not nearly as overwhelming as the 49ers fans from the week before, but there were some nice pockets of fans around. I guess finally fielding a playoff team and being a decade in has allowed this team to gain some out-of-state fans.
