Week 2 Observations

Football is just getting into the swing of things and teams are starting to show their true colors.  Like always, there is always a plethora of story lines to appetize even the savviest football fans.  See below.

 

  • Nick Mangold's injury makes me realize how healthy the Jets have been the last 2 seasons:  Besides Jenkins and Leonhard, the last two years we have been remarkably healthy.  Our O-line, as of now, is nowhere near a strength.
  • Tom Brady is the best QB in the league right now. Period.: I hate typing that, but it's true (No disrespect, Mr. Rodgers).  Is it possible he's getting better?
  • Romo shows some heart: I'll be honest, I wasn't surprised when he choked against us, it really seems to be his MO.  That being said, his performance against the 49er's was just class, tough, leadership.  Playing with a cracked rib takes guts, and Romo showed he had some.
  • The Dolphins are not mentally tough:  I'll admit the team has talent, but they can't seem to put it together. They're 1-11 in their last 12 games at home.  That's pathetic and a big reason why the Phins may end up in the cellar this season.
  • Cam Newton impresses again:  Ok, he had three interceptions so it wasn't a brilliant performance.  But don't take away the fact that he's had back to back 400+ games and this came against a good defense in GB. I think Carolina's got themselves a keeper.  Poor Jimmy Clausen.
  • Suck for Luck?: You're well on your way, Indianapolis and Kansas City.  It's funny how a season can change things.  KC went from a division championship to perhaps the worst two weeks of football ever played.  Our December matchup with them seems a lot easier.
  • San Diego still doesn't convert it's opportunities:  There's a reason they can't make the superbowl.  They make crippling mistakes at the most inopportune time and yesterday was the perfect game to example this.  I still don't know how Norv Turner has his job.
  • Kyle Wilson is a completely different player:  There is a huge gap between Wilson's rookie and sophomore year.  This year he's not only in position but making plays on the ball.  I think his time with Revis may have been beneficial.  On an interesting note, with the Jets committed to Cro for the next four years what will the Jets do with Wilson? Personally, I think Wilson will exceed Cro as a corner within that timespan and I'm just wondering how the Jets would play that situation.
  • The Lions are a good team, as long as Matt Stafford is healthy:  He may be as fragile as a china doll; but there is no denying Stafford is a massive talent.  The offense can put up points in a hurry and the D-Line is a Top 5 unit in the league.  I see playoffs.
  • Oakland's D-Line is considered a strength, but can be run on:  That's proven by the fact that Fred Jackson almost averaged 10 yards a carry running behind an awful offensive line.  The game may be an anomaly but it gives me hope for a successful running game next week.
That's about it, leave any of your observations below...oh wait, one more thing.
