I never feel right writing about football on this day. My mind drifts to all of the innocent people who lost their lives eight years ago today in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania. It drifts to those who showed no regard for their own safety to try and help others. It drifts to the people who fought back against the hijackers to try and take back their plane, saving an unknown number of people. It drifts to all of those who lost fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends, and others.

I know we're all excited about the season starting, but I think anything that has to do with the Jets can wait until tomorrow. We'll have a big conclusion to our Week 1 preview. I promise it will be great.


If you have any charities close to your heart, please post the link. I'll be sure to add it to the post.
