The Jets…and the P Word

Braylon+Edwards+Colts
I won’t say it.  This Jets team doesn’t deserve it.

A month ago, there was no reason to believe the word should ever be uttered again.

A team that has sputtered, made terrible mistakes, encountered injury after injury, has a lemon of a foundation, and has only been consistent in being awful offensively…they should be dead in the water.

A Dangerous Precedent: The Niners and Benching Alex Smith

49ers QB Alex Smith was carrying the 3rd best Quarterback Rating in the NFL going into their game with the St. Louis Rams on November 11.  In that game, he was concussed from a hit that resulted in Smith missing the remainder of the game and the following matchup with one of the league’s top defenses, the Chicago Bears, on Monday Night Football.

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.

2. This guy made a great shirt

Luckily, we only have to stop at step 1 of that shirt.

Now That the Refs Are Back, How Can We Blame The Packers For Losing To The Seahawks?

[Warning: Tweets posted contain explicit language]

As of Wednesday, the full-time referees have been returned to the NFL and the replacements sent off to the ether for eternity. We had a regularly scheduled matchup between the Ravens and Browns go off without a hitch.

So this is as good of time as any to run down reasons 4 to 2 as to why the Packers actually lost Monday Night.
