I agree somewhat, but: we beat Miami twice and they have a highly ranked defense; we beat the Texans, who beat Jax twice and Indy once; the Browns game was helped by the zebras ( ); the Vikings had a highly ranked run defense, and the Raiders had a highly ranked defense/pass defense.CTWLSMIKE said:Looking at the Jets season, they had a pretty easy schedule. They did beat the Pats in Foxboro, but of their other nine wins none were against teams with a winning record. The best teams they beat were the 8-8 Packers and Titans. Victories against teams like the Raiders, Lions, Vikings, Texans are good only because they are teams you need to beat to get into the playoffs, but not likely to make you last deep into them. They did play a few good teams close in losses, Indy (lost by 3) Da Bears (lost by 10 although they were shutout). But, losses to Jacksonville (41-0), Buffalo (at home!) 31-13, and Cleveland are cause for concern.
I know they have played well (6-2) in last eight games and the playoffs are a new season blah blah blah, but let's set some realistic expectations here. If the Jets somehow can beat the Patriots for a second time this season, the likelihood they can make it through the next two games would be slim to none.
I wish them luck. :wave:
As for the Patriots, well they are the Patriots. I think they'll play the Jets close and tough, but will eke out a win. Beyond that, it will depend on the matchups.

and you're telling US to behave??? :lol: :lol: :thumbsup:SkipperC said:Very Cool!! I'm a Jets fan myself and my brother just so happens to think that his Patriots are going to win the game this Sunday. I TP'd his house last night......
Care to wager a Johnny on this, Skipper? No spread, straight up Win/Lose :devil: :wave: :dude:SkipperC said:Well, he brought up the same point that ctwlsMike did. Said they were the best at beating losing teams and that the win over NE earlier was because of injuries. Thus, a TP'ing was administered. BY the way, how 'bout we go Jets 31-Pats 17
We could go regular for a regular, or a white for a white. How much faith do ya have, brother? :tongue:SkipperC said:I would love to relieve you of one of your top quality JL diecast vehicles Whatcha got in mind????
My faith knows no bounds. However, I believe that you my friend, along with those Patriots, are in need of the power of prayer As for the spoils I agree that surprises are great fun. But...........having to choose a WL BEFORE the game and watching in dread as ownership slowly slips away really adds to the preassure. And the drama. And the heartbreak So, what do you have that's semi-precious? Something you don't have a dupe of and would REALLY cause some serious palpitations should said ownership come into question??? How much faith do you have, brother. :devil:carnut2256 said:We could go regular for a regular, or a white for a white. How much faith do ya have, brother? :tongue:
We can agree to a random choice of either, or state for the record what our offerings are (I myself look forward to being surprised, and trust that your judgement will not be tainted by "sour grapes" )
I would loooovvvveeee to add that 'Bird to my collection. I see your BWF GTO WL, and raise you a PIP Nomad WL (WL photo not available at this moment).SkipperC said:WL's are not out of the question. I kind of like the idea of a promo or Tour car, or perhaps a Fest car......got one of these????
Or is there something in particular you have been dreaming about......
(Wyatt, U da Man!!!)
Or, we could raise the stakes a little.... :devil:
