It’s a wonderful night, you’ve gotta take it from me. It’s a wonderful night, come on and break it on down. -Fatboy Slim
Just a short little quick one. Quick like a licorice stick one. Just to throw a brick one. As much as I’d like to say, Same Old Jets, I cannot. As much as I’d like to say, Ha ha Jets, I cannot. For as much as I’d like to say those things, it’d be those Same Old Jets that beat my beloved Patriots last weekend and what would that say for my beloved Patriots? All I know is the Jets made Rashard Mendenhall look like Franco Harris last night. It was if Mike Tomlin took a page from an old Chuck Noll playbook, calling on Rashard Mendenhall early and often in the Steelers’ 24-19 victory. Mendenhall carried the ball 10 times in the first quarter, something no Steelers running back had done in a postseason game in more than 30 years. But Franco Harris did it three times for Noll’s teams during the 1970s. Awww to heck with it. I’m gonna say it. Same Old J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets! The Jets failed to score on a 17-play, 80-yard drive in the fourth quarter. That was the longest drive (that is, most plays) resulting in no points in a postseason game since the Giants came up empty on a 19-play drive against the Vikings in January 2001. Not to worry, the Giants were winning 41-0 in the NFC title game at the time. Unfortunately for the Jets, they weren’t winning, and now order has been restored in the world.
Peace out Jets. Six two and even!
