Ain't It Beautiful: Jets Beat Pats, Initial Reaction

Is it just me or is it all of a sudden alot more fun to be a Jets fan? I just got back from the Meadowlands and I will say the fans game ball from Rex Ryan was well deserved. In my 18 years of going to Jets games, I have never seen a crowd like I saw it today. There was no sitting, just non-stop jumping, cheering, “Brady sucks” chants, “Defense” chants, “Boston Sucks” chants, and all that other good stuff. The fans were on their game today and fortunately so was Rex Ryan, Mark Sanchez, and of course the Jets defense which is yet to allow a touchdown through 2 games.

Sorry Bill…You were out-coached today, the Pats were in control at halftime up 9-3 and you were out-adjusted by Rex Ryan at halftime as the Jets outscored you 13-0 in the second half. Your team was undisciplined, coming up with 11 penalties for 89 yards and not surprisingly you couldn’t even look Rex Ryan in the face and barely shake his hand after the game. You might have traded away one too many players on that defense. which simply isn’t on the same level as the Jets.

Sorry Tom…You look rattled and scared in the pocket, we could smell you crapping your pants from the Jets pass rush all the way up in Section 313. 23/47? I am not math whiz, but isn’t that below 50 percent? Back to back delay of game penalties? I thought Mark Sanchez was the rookie. Zero touchdowns and an interception? Yikes. I don’t know, that Patriots offense doesn’t look like anything too special to me.

How About…That Jets defense, I can’t talk enough about them. Darrelle Revis is the best corner in the NFL right now. Who else shuts down Andre Johnson (who by the way had 149 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns against all-pro corner Cortland Finnegan today) and Randy Moss in back to back weeks? Donald Strickland and Lito Sheppard both played very well and hopefully their injuries aren’t serious even though Dwight Lowery, Eric Smith, and Drew Coleman all stepped up off the bench…Mark Sanchez protecting the football and coming up huge in the second half with two big strikes to Jerricho Cotchery, a beautiful touchdown pass to Dustin Keller, and a huge third down conversion to Chansi Stuckey. The best is that he is only going to get better…The previously mentioned receivers, all stepping up and providing another good game, especially Cotchery who had 87 yards receiving, all in the second half.

Much more to come tomorrow, right now my throat hurts, my legs are killing me, but damn we just held Tom Brady to 0 touchdowns, below 50 percent passing, out-coached Bill Belichick, and cheered the Pats into 4 delay of game penalties.

Enjoy it Jets Nation, you are 2-0, have a defense that hasn’t allowed a touchdown in 2 games, just beat New England, and you may have finally found the right coach and right quarterback. If you weren’t at the game today, find a way to get to a home game this season because that was place was rocking today, and if the Jets keep playing this way it is going to be rocking all season.
