Jets-Cardinals 1st Half

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

What a half for Gang Green. Head coach Eric Mangini must be smiling as everything went the Jets way in the first half. Defensively, after being owned by San Diego, the Jets defense is playing the perfect game. Five turnovers, 2 INT’s and countless number of sacks have Arizona rattled going into the dressing room. If you are Jets fan you have like the way that everyone on the defensive side of the ball (including newly resigned CB Hank Poteat) is getting into the action.

Offensively, WR Laveranues Coles and QB Brett Favre look like they have been together 18 years. With the help of some luck on the 34-yard touchdown pass those two haven’t missed a beat. The thing that I like the most about that half is that Mangini and offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer have worked RB Leon Washington more into offense.

What to look for in the second half: 1) The Jets should start milking the clock. That’s means Arizona will get a healthy dose of RB Thomas Jones. 2) Shaun Ellis- he left the game limping in the first half, it would be a big loss if he can’t do much 3) The reserves -  In this half look for some second teamers to see some action especially defensively. We know CB Ahmad Carroll and LB Cody Spencer can play specials teams, but can they play defense. We will probably see in the second half.

Jets-Cardinals Preview

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

While many people think that their is no such thing as a must win game in September, for the Jets this Sunday when the Cardinals visit the Meadowlands it is a must win! After a poor showing on Monday Night Football last week, the Jets and their secondary will be put to the test on Sunday.

To me whether the Jets win or lose, falls into the hands of rookie CB Dwight Lowery. In his first year of duty CB Darrelle Revis has shown he has answered every challenge thrown his way. But after Lowery received his official welcoming to the NFL, how he rebounds from last week is important. Lowery, who will probably be on Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald, will have his hands full as Fitzgerald is four catches away from 350 for his career.

If Lowery and Revis can contain Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin (who tweaked his hamstring in practice on Friday) and NT Kris Jenkins plays like he did the first two weeks the Jets should go into the bye week at 2-2. I see the final score being Jets 27, Cardinals 20.

P.S. My sources told me that QB Brett Favre will play and keep his iron-man streak alive.
