Does anyone else have that "feeling" that we will beat the Bears?
I don't know why, logic says we shouldn't but I just have this overwhelming feeling that we are going to win.
I pray that I'm right..It will make for an enjoyable week leading up to New Years. This week has been especially enjoyable with the JETS getting kudos while the Giants are getting killed by the press!!:D
I certainly like the Bears playing on Monday Night, playing on that rock hard field in Minnisota in the cold. Little tougher for bodies to recover, I also like that they have clinched a playoff spot, and are basking in the the glow of a monday night win on national TV over a division rival.
What I don't like is the Bears dominant pass rush (Peppers against Hunter), Cutlers ability to throw to TE's and 3rd, 4th receivers.
Key Matchup : Weatherford vs. Hester:yes::yes:
I'm feeling confident as well, less because of an analysis of the matchup but more because of Jets-franchise psychology.
Over the last decade or so, what tightens up the Jets is the prospect of missing the playoffs. Most of our egregious chokes are in December games where we face the prospect of missing the postseason (Miami this year, Atlanta last year, the whole month of December in 2008 and 2004).
Once we get the big win that kills the "collapse" narrative, we usually play with a "house money" attitude. (Cincy, Cincy and SD last year, WC game in 2004, etc...)
I don't know why that is, but it is. I expect us to play very well from here on out.
