    The Recco Report- Jets will beat KC 45 to 10

    Recco Report: Jets/Chiefs Preview

    Jerry Recco


    While last week I was blindsided, I promise you that this week I will be dead-on. The Jets will destroy the Chiefs 45-10 and here's why:

    (This is kind of like David Letterman's top ten list, but I'll call it Recco's Magnificent Seven)

    #7 Brett Favre is ticked off. Favre had a miserable week, spending almost all of his weekly press conference defending a stupid story that circulated like wild fire about his alleged involvement with the Lions before their game with the Packers in week two. On top of that, Favre had a tough day against the Raiders in a game that the Jets needed to win. All in all, Favre and the Jets offense will fatten up their stats against a Chiefs defense that has given up 68 points in the last two weeks.

    #6 David Clowney. The one thing that Favre is lacking with the Jets is a speedy receiver with good hands that can flat-out run. Clowney is the guy. He showed flashes of brilliance in the preseason before getting hurt; now he is healthy. The concussion to Coles should allow Clowney to see extended time as a 3rd receiver. (Of course we're assuming Coles doesn't play, Cotchery is the 1 & Chansi Stuckey is the 2)

    #5 The running game. Are you ready for this stat. The Chiefs rank last in rush defense allowing 207 yards per game! In case you think your eyes are deceiving you let me repeat myself, the Chiefs defense is allowing 207 yards per game! Holy $!%^! How is that humanly possible? Here's how, this is a team of twenty-something's that no one has ever heard of. Here is Herman Edwards from the Boomer & Carton show.



    Herm sounds like a beaten down coach. They ask some tough questions and he gives some honest answers. Oh yeah, Thomas Jones off his big game in Oakland will follow it up here.

    #4 Larry Johnson. The biggest (and only) threat the Chiefs have will NOT play. Johnson is facing charges of spitting in a woman's face and threatening to kill her boyfriend. Before the NFL did anything, Edwards suspended Johnson. Kolby Smith and Jamaal Charles will be the backs that the Jets defense has to worry about. Who? Exactly.

    #3 Tyler Thigpen. Let me steal the line from above. Who? Exactly. Thigpen is the Chiefs starting quarterback for this game. I'm sure Thigpen has a lot of talent, but lets be honest, this is a guy who was waived by the Vikings. Minnesota can't find a starting quarterback that's any good and they waived him. They either made a major mistake or we'll find out that he's a cut below what an NFL quarterback needs to be!

    #2 The Jets pass rush. They are ranked 3rd in the NFL in sacks, with 20. I expect Eric Mangini to tell Bob Sutton to send the house and knock this kid around. Look for the Jets to have five to eight sacks on Sunday, possibly moving them into the league lead. (The Steelers lead with 25, but against the Giants O-line I don't expect them to get any this weekend)

    #1 Finally, the Jets will win this game because they have to! If they don't, their season will collapse. They HAVE to be 4-3 heading to Buffalo next week, to at least give themselves a chance to still do something of interest this season.

    Lose consecutive games to the Raiders and Chiefs and let's just start counting down the days until pitchers and catchers report. Oh wait, we already do that here. Let's try that again, lose consecutive games to the Raiders and Chiefs and let's just start counting down the days until the day Favre makes a decision on 2009.

    Listen to Greeny!

    Watched Mike and Mike the other morning, to para phrase Greeny...

    If you don't think the JETS can lose to the Chiefs, you didn't watch the Raider game.

    I believe we will win but Greeny has a VERY experienced point!!!

    Yup...the Jets will find a way to keep this close. Wether it be ultra-conservative play calling or lack luster play...they will not win by 35 points.

    The Jets play down to their opponents. When was the last time we blew a team out? Even in the Arizona game we let them make it close in the 3rd quarter.

    I know, I know, it's Kansas City, but they beat Denver (who are just as good, if not better, than us). I am done handing out W's to the Jets. I used to have the green-colored glasses but all I have been doing my whole life is setting myself up for disappointment.

    I think we will win, but Joe Willie ain't on the team anymore to make guarantees.
