Okay, so I've gone through the whole "grief-anger-acceptance" thing overnight and have accepted the fact that we have lost the ability to control our own destiny. We need to win out and have several other teams do a nose dive in the last 4 weeks of the season in order to get into the playoffs, which to me, seems unlikely. It actually takes some of the pressure off and should quiet the whole ridiculous "Keep Cassel/Trade Brady" debate. So, if we don't make it, I plan to ask Santa for the following things: 1) Please Santa, don't let the Jets win it all, or even get into the playoffs if you can help it. If it can't be us, I would rather see Miami win the division than the Jets and their !@!#@! QB. 2) Please Santa, do not stick the masses with a Manning vs. Manning Superbowl. Upon further review, I would rather see the Jets in the Superbowl than Goober 1 vs. Goober 2, although both scenarios would choke me and make me question my NFL fandom. Thank you and say "Hi" to Mrs. Claus. How about you, what are your holiday wishes (aside from the Pats pulling off a miracle and making it into the playoffs)?
