It’s been a rough few days for Drags as his beloved Yankees faltered in game 5 at home against the Detroit Tigers. He sent me an email asking to vent on a public forum so i reposted his email. The Monday morning sun rises with more disappointment as Drags’s home town Jets have now fallen to 2-3 and they still can’t figure out the right chemistry to get things going. Drags asked me to repost another email this morning that I’m pretty sure he wrote while also staring at a loaded revolver sitting in his lap. Anyway I digress…
WHO THE HELL IS IN THE GREEN AND WHITE?
By Chris Drags
Where, o’ where, have the New York Jets gone? Oh where, o’ where have they gone? Forget the 8 three-and-outs. Forget the continued lack of “ground-and-pound.” Forget Sanchez throwing for 30 more yards than Green-Ellis ran for. Forget that the Jet’s best offensive weapon was Joe McKnight! And forget letting Benjarvis Green-Ellis (not Tom Brady!) march down the field eating up seven minutes of clock on the self proclaimed “#1” defense with the Jets only down 6 in a must stop situation. The real problem with the Jets? Attitude.
Where is the team with the chip on their shoulder? Where’s the team that stands on the line looking like thugs with swagger? Where’s the confidence? Where the fuck are the bullies! Do the Jets only perform well when they’re told they won’t win? Four washed up ex-hall of Fame players with too many head hits predict your team to actually, maybe, follow through on your “Super-bowl” predictions during a morning football program on CBS and you assume it’s just going to happen??
Remember back less than a year ago to the playoff game in Foxborough; the Jets were mad. Bart Scott, as we all know now, felt disrespected. They were tough, and played rough, pushed over the Patriots who blew them out only a month earlier. They looked like the Jets….and that was the last time. They were told all season long they weren’t going to do it, and once they beat the Pats, were told they had a reasonable chance…and then lost to the Steelers by laying down in the first half. If the Jets need to be told that they can’t do it, that they aren’t good enough and that they are the underdogs to play well, then congratulations Jets, here it comes: you guys suck! You’ve been bullied all year long. You had glimmers against Dallas but still SHOULD have lost if not for Saint Romo passing out wins to the needy. You blew out Jacksonville, but a Texas high school team could do that. Then Oakland, Baltimore and New England put you in your place by kicking you in the face.
The worst part? After last night’s loss the Jets were not pissed about what happened, not pissed that they now have a losing record and just handed the Pats the keys to the AFC East, no, they were talking (in the locker room) about all the good things that they did do; which I’m still trying to figure out…held Welker to 124 yards maybe? The Pats, the team in first, was angry after the win (!) because they thought they could have played better. I know Shawn Ellis is over there, but it sure looks like the mentalities are reversed.
The Jets have a long week off before a Monday night showdown against the Jet-killing Miami Dolphins, then they get the Chargers and a bye. All we can hope for is that they watch PTI and see themselves get ripped a new one, because right now, Jets, you guys suck. Now use this motivation to fucking win!!
