Do not ask for whom the Jets lose.  They lose for me.  I know it’s just the first game, and they did play the team favored to win the Superbowl, but I was really hoping they would win.  The offense and the secondary did ok.  But the pass-rush and run-stop was non-existant.  Chad Pennington also twisted his ankle.  At this point, I am willing to scrap the whole season and...

Da Jets

Wow, is it preseason already?!?  That off-season just flew on by.  The Jets are primed to win the Superbowl this year.  It’s just one month until the season opener against the hated New England Patriots.  This is a MUST-WIN game.  It’s retarded to think that the very first game is a must-win, but I really think it will set the tone for the whole season if they come out of...

NFL Draft part Duex

When the draft was over, I was thinking about the hundreds of guys who didn’t get picked. On this one single day, they go from their old lives as collegiate superstars to the potential of being picked for the NFL (which carries with it a hefty salary check) to being left out in the cold. Of course many of these players will go on to the Canadian football league, arena...

Da Jets (Draft)

For the second time, since I can remember, I am not unhappy after the NFL Draft. The first time was when the Jets selected Abraham, Ellis and Pennington. All good additions. This year the Jets selected 10 players. (This is alot for a draft). And I am very happy. If I were grading them based on my expectations, they got an A+. They blew away my expectations. If I were...

Superbowl XL

Pretty good game. The Pittsburgh Steelers won the game. Several plays (interceptions) could have changed the game. Each team had a chance to win and the defenses stepped up. In general, the Seattle Seahawks wide receivers dropped the ball several times in several key plays. I think that may be the ultimate difference. This game could have gone either way. The commercials were pretty good. I really liked the FedEx...

Widgets and widJets

Konfabulator has been relaunched as Yahoo Widgets. Very interesting technology. Easy to create, small and useful. I wonder if Yahoo can make it catch on. I wouldn’t be surprised if Google comes out with something similar. And Microsoft is already experimenting with “Gadgets”, but who knows what will catch on. I suggest to Adobe/Macromedia to come out with the same kind of think in Flash. They should have acquired Konfabulator...

Sick of the Jets

Q: How can you tell when a bucket gets sick? A: It becomes a little pale. The Jets, Sunday night, ALMOST won the game against the Chargers. They had 1st and goal with a minute left. Score a touchdown and win. Simple as that. They called 1 run and three timing passes. All losers. They lost the game. I can’t believe it! I am so sick of them losing all...

High Crimes and Hopes

The White House is facing lots of indictments for the Valerie Plame incident. I am hoping for Karl Rove to be put in jail, along with Dick Cheney and Scooter Libby. I am also hoping for the Jets to magically solve their Quarterback problem. I do not have high expectations for either, but I you never know. I hope Justice will be done. You see, in cases where you can...

Losers

The Jets game just ended a short while ago. Ugliest game I have ever seen. Seriously, it looked like a high school game. Atlanta was terrible, the Jets were worse. It was as if both teams were TRYING to lose. 7 turnovers. Blech. Vinny got hurt. Vinny is old (41) and has played poorly since before Van Halen broke up. Jets are losers. I am a loser for being a...
