ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 12:36 PM) I think that the JETS will try but they won't try hard enough to win and they will lose even though losing won't affect our draft position much
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 12:51 PM) GAMETIME
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 12:57 PM) Lose the next 2

XvNukemHighvX Icon : (Today, 01:09 PM) That was just drawn up great, totally confused the protection. Looked like 3 lineman had no one to block and were just confused
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:10 PM) lmao Jalen Saunders becoming a good return man with the Saints
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:10 PM) I think the Jets gave up on him too quickly.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) these f***ing playcalls are horrible
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) another 3 & Out
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) Harvin is tough, guy has a sprained ankle and isn't missing a game

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:12 PM) I want Harvin back
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) first time Pryor has made a play
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) Pryor making a nice tackle there
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) almost flipping that POS amendola head over heels
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:13 PM) I still think Pryor will be a good safety for us, just put in a bad situation this season due to how bad we are at CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:14 PM) I'm excited for the season to end to see what changes are made
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) Me too
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) I'm already putting Pryor into the Miliner category = BUST
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:15 PM) If Woody cleans house it should be an attractive place to come too. Some talent and a lot of cap space.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:16 PM) incomplete
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) at least the D is shutting them down so far
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) That's good for you. Injuries derailed a promising season for Milber
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) but our O is horrendous
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) another 3 & Out coming up for the JETS O
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:17 PM) We are really pathetic at CB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:20 PM) our O SUCKS
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:20 PM) Can we just fire morningwig now?
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 01:21 PM) Geno waited to long to run
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:21 PM) That 3 & Out was brought to you by Marty Morningwhig
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:22 PM) If you want your D to get worn down...you get a Marty Morningwhig led O to do that
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:25 PM) Marty Mornhinweg is restricted by Rex
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:26 PM) We will never have a good offense under Rex
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:26 PM) Unless we had a proven veteran QB and good OL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:28 PM) lmao @ brady
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:28 PM) Just keep hitting Brady
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:29 PM) I will miss seeing this defense vs Brady. Rex usually gives him more trouble than most do
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:30 PM) will the O please have a drive longer than 3 & Out
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 01:32 PM) I wish we would injure Brady

Why the Jets will beat the Titans
By Roy S. Johnson / Y! Sports Blogs

It's over. The Tennessee Titans are toast. The old-as-dirt Dolphins will raise a glass come Sunday afternoon because the undefeated will be no more.

Yeah, I'm sayin' it. The New York Jets will beat the Titans this Sunday to dash the NFL's last unbeaten team.

The Titans are the 11th team since 1970 to go 10-0. Seven of the previous 10 went to the Super Bowl. Five were Super Bowl champs.

But this isn't about the Super Bowl; it's about Sunday. And on that day, the Titans will be losers.

I love both teams. I love the Titans because Jeff Fisher has created an old-school unit with new-school juice. They play leather-helmet defense and are guided by a geriatric QB (Kerry Collins) who's been cast away more times than Tom Hanks. And yet in guys like their Hammer and Sickle running backs LenDale White and Chris Johnson, third- and first-year kiddies they embody a youthful exuberance that doesn't seem to know any better.

I haven't always been able to say I love the Jets. They've been erratic and confounding, but that's pretty much Brett Favre's dossier. You knew when he was acquired that he would either bring you glory or gore. Eighteen touchdown passes, 12 picks. Favre from perfect, but the Jets are 7-3 and leading the AFC East.

So these are two good teams playing a game that has little long-term implications for either. No matter what happens Sunday, both will remain in contention for first-round playoff byes and storybook playoff runs.

But this isn't about the playoffs; it's about Sunday.

There are some tangible reasons why the Jets will win. They are coming off a 34-31 overtime victory in Foxborough in which they exorcised demons against the rival Patriots. That was a purging triumph that allows the Jets to now play free from the burdens of their past. In other words, Sunday is gravy. Win or lose, they beat the Pats and that matters more.

Also, the Titans have proven themselves worthy of their record, winning successive road games the past two weeks. Back at home on Sunday, it'll become all about the record. At some point Sunday, they'll realize that while you indeed play to win the game, you really play to win the Super Bowl and a November loss when you've got "0" may not be such a bad thing.

More tangibly, the Jets will win because of their offensive and defensive lines. In a sense, they play misdirection football. While you're watching Favre and Thomas Jones (leading rusher in the AFC; bet you didn't know that), their offensive line has gelled into an almost immovable force that carves (for Jones) and protects (for Favre.)

On the other side of the ball, the Jets are equally immovable, allowing only 81.3 rushing yards per game fourth best in pro football. Johnson and White will have a good day, but not a great one. So before the afternoon sun sets, Collins will have to beat the Jets.

And he won't.

The Titans are stingy with points, allowing just 181 in their 10 games fewer than anyone in the NFL. But Favre will score enough.

Enough to win.

Once again the media is setting the Jets up for unattainable expectations. Another huge disappointing loss is in the works people, you just know it's coming.

Have you looked at the Titans end of schedule?

I for one dont think they are quite good enough to go 16-0 being it has only been done once means the odds are not in their favor.Someone will beat them
