When the Jets acquired Favre, there was a lot of speculation about how many games Gang Green would win. Some analysts went as far as to predict the exact games the Jets would win and lose. Would they start 1-2? 0-3?
There was little confidence in 3-0 after week three, and sure enough New York stands at 1-1 after week two.
So it’s either 1-2 or 2-1. After a tough loss to New England in the home opener, Jets fans need not worry. No need to push the panic button.
Going into week three, a west coast road trip on a Monday night at San Diego, the Jets are in very good shape. While falling 19-10 to the Pats on week two isn’t desirable, Brett Favre engineered a solid drive in the 4th quarter, and Thomas Jones chewed up the ground gaining first down after first down. Sure, there were some miscues, mistakes, but it’s still early.
Other than Kansas City or (insert other laughable team here), there is no better place to be going than San Diego during prime time.
The Tomlinson-less Chargers just dropped not one, but two heart-breakers in weeks one and two. Carolina ripped their hearts out of their chests as time expired in week one, and Denver just beat the Bolts at Mile High courtesy of a cheap call.
The Jets should be licking their chops with an extra day off, a game in prime time, and against a defeated opponent.
Of course, week three could be the week San Diego turns its season around. But while I wouldn’t sleep on the Chargers, take a look around the AFC. Tom Brady goes down, San Diego is 0-2, and Indianapolis looked awful in its opener against Chicago. The NFL-especially the AFC-seems to be experiencing some kind of changing of hte guard.
I don’t know the mentality of the team at this point. After a tough loss, the morale can’t be high, but like Vince Vaughn said in swingers, the Jets are so money and they don’t even know it, baby!
