    Dropped TD by Crumpler and Brady's awful INT as they steamrolled down the field. That's 14 points, worst case, 10. Did Rex magically wave a wand when Crumpler try to catch a wide open pass or did he put a hex on Brady on that pass to BJGE? At some point, there is a lot of luck involved and it's not impressive, it's just luck, and it happens to the Pats too.   Good for them, but stop acting like they are some juggernaut team.  It's becoming annyoing. I was kidding about them throwing the game. Put it this way, if you are  Cowboys fan watching your refurbished, new atttitude team play an almost perfect road game for 56 minutes, you'd be annoyed your team flat out handed it away. Very quietly, Buffalo has readjusted and Miami isn't as bad some claim.  The Jets get this hype because they  have all told us how great they are.  The question is, are they really? When you watch them, are they really this unstoppable team or are they pretty much in a deep mix of borderline playoff teams? Buffalo just BLASTED an up and coming KC team at one of the most difficult places to play in the NFL. Everyone here gave credit to NY last year in the playoffs. They won the game, made more plays and executed better.  But, that's over. Their mad dash to win it all into the lockout failed and you can't have watched last night's game and thought either their O or D was as impressive as it had been in recent years. Jax will give them problems next week.   Much better secondary and a good D as well.

    I'm not acting like they're a juggernuat, nor have I stated as much and frankly they're not built to be a juggernaut, they're built to be a hardnosed run oriented ball control AFC North team that rely's on thier defense to keep games close. Frankly they're built very similar to the the dynasty Patriot teams and the Ravens...unfortunately for them them their more in the mold of the recent versions of the Ravens and Sanchez is no Brady...put Brady on the Jet's and they win at least one of the last two ACF championship games and probably the Superbowl last year...

    What the Jet's do have is...

    Offensively
    1) A stout O-line...
    2) very good skill players at TE, WR and RB

    What they lack is a QB that can sit in the pocket and beat teams with his arm... 

    Defensively,
    1) They're a top 3 or 4 in yards allowed from scrimmage...
    2) They have the best cover corner tandem in the game with Revis and Cromartie. Which allows them to play more man coverages freeing them up to gamble with both run and pass blitz packages with their safties and linebackers...
    3) Head Coach Rex Ryan....is among the best Defensive minds in the game...

    What they lack is proven front line...time will tell if they can replace Ellis's leadership....

    You don't have to be a football genious to arrive at the conclusion they're a good football team...and until we show that we can beat them when it matters...I will continue to give them their due

    MNP3a, Honestly, if they weren';t so mouthy about what they were doing and were intelligently going under the radar, I would. Until they win a division and win an AFC title, we're not seeing anything different.

    Well said.

    don't  know about their defense, yet: preseason was too short, every team will have issues. but i think they'll be good.

    for me, the problem is: can the Pats raise their game come the playoffs? now we __know__ the Jets will.

    The funny thing here is that over in Green Gang land they have a thread entitled, "If The JETS were the PATS", the basic premise of which is that if the PATS had won against the Cowboys last evening in the same way, they would not have been called lucky or have it said that the Cowboys handed the game to them.  This thread is the mirror image of that but instead the fan angst is PATS angst.  Frankly its all to silly for me.  They won, sobeit.

    They shouldn't have beat Dallas?

    Home opener, in NY, on the anniversary of 911, Div champ vs 6-10 team. 

    They should win their first 3.

    I don't know. I think most Pats fans would say the Pats were lucky. Much like last year how they were lucky to beat SD. They didn't deserve to bet SD much like the Jets didn't deserve to beat Dal last night. Listen if the D wins the game they win the game, that's not luck. However, when the opposing team is about to deliver the final blow then all of a sudden hands you the ball and crawls into the fertile position well that's luck. Now, of course luck alone doesn't win the game and the Jets needed to take advantage of the bad play of Romo and just plain bad coaching but they were basically gift wrap a game they should have lost.

    If the same thing happened to the Pats I will be the first to admit the Pats got lucky and didn't deserve to win the game as I'm sure most die hards on here would
