Wild-card weekend Monday 10-pack | ProFootballTalk
If the Jets still have 45-3 on the mind, then this game won't be close at all. The best thing they can hope to do is erase the image of that trouncing and come out fresh. Otherwise, the Pats are in their heads.
Thats just fodder for talk shows and the media, the better team will win Sunday.
Ravens panic has transferred over to Jets panic.
So basically what you're saying is that this is a trap game?
Am I the only one who doesn't like this article? Doesn't seem to hold much weight IMO.
The Bills have 7 years of pent up anger against the Patriots and still haven't made good use of it.
Regarding the Jets Blather? As I suspected they are going to take a page out of BB's book and try to be stoic. At least the Veterans are trying -- From the Herald:
Veteran linebacker Jason Taylor, meanwhile, was one of many Jet players, as well as Ryan, who wouldnâ€™t discuss the Patriots or that fateful last game.
â€śIf there was any bit of uncertainty, I think this helps erase it,â€ť Taylor said. â€śBut itâ€™s one game. We won the playoff round. Weâ€™ve got to go play in the divisional round, and if we win that, we still havenâ€™t done anything yet.â€ť
Jets offensive lineman Damien Woody says what memory? The day after that Dec. 6 contest, Ryan held a mock funeral and buried a football from the game.
â€śYeah, technically, we buried it. Weâ€™re not even supposed to remember it,â€ť Woody said Saturday night after New York edged the Colts, 17-16, in the wild card round. â€śWhat do you call it when you dig up bodies? What is it, exhume? Weâ€™re not exhuming anything around here. Weâ€™re just playing another game. Weâ€™re not exhuming any footballs.â€ť
Regarding forgetting about the blow out.......just read the article to see that it still is in their minds (to some degree). Does it translate to a Patriot advantage is debatable because of the 'it's our rallying cry' possibilities. However, I don't buy any conclusion other than A) they talked a lot of trash B) they got destroyed C) they got a seed of doubt planted in their minds. And if the Jets do start to forget about it? Gotta love video recordings and a rabid sports media!
"Moral high ground"?
I don't know what hes talking about,The Rats have No morals
7 yards passing in the 4th quarter.
Yep, the Patriots ran up the score.
More like they ran up the Jets backs and left treadmarks.
Interesting way of looking at it, actually*. No, I was getting at all the panic about the Ravens earlier in the week has now been transferred over to the Jest. I don't think it will be a 45-3 drubbing again, but I don't see the calculus on how the Pats won't win by at least 10-14 points, which is fairly comfortable in the playoffs.
*If the Pats and Ravens both win, this board will be just about schizophrenic, hopping between elation and dread.
Cliff's Notes version:
"Watch out for those Jets. They just won a playoff game and the swagger is back. They just might get revenge for that blowout loss that they totally deserved for being loudmouth dickwads."
Media headlines and ramblings don't score touch downs. Why keep trying?
Florio is such a pathetic hack. His writing is littered with attempts to obtain moral self gratification from "reporting" on football. From obsessing over trying to catch Rooney Rule violations on every head coaching vacancy, to trying to get hard hits out of football, disingenuously claiming its for player safety, this running up the score BS here, and on and on.
It's amazing that he parlayed being a master of cut and paste into getting a gig on NBC. Then again, Dick Ebersol also put the XFL on the air.
Not that amazing given NBC's track record of on-air hacks. He is actually a tremendous step up from Olberdouche and Tiki "me me me" Barber.
I know. I was just joking.
What is funny about this isn't the fact that its the Jets (which is funny in its own right), but you would have seen roughly the same articles if it were the Ravens coming to Foxboro. I guess the logic is that the team that played the best in the conference (and the league) is deathly afraid of teams they know they can beat. :bricks:
I was actually open to the idea that I had used some bad logic. I'm not entirely with it tonight.
