Maybe, Every writer in the media IS correct about The New York Jets simply being too good to even be stopped this upcoming season by ANY other team at all... I mean, I wasn't able to actually see the Jets verses Giants pre-season game, But Good God, Judging by what I've read thus far, The Jets musta freakin' dismantled 'em!
I checked out NFL.com AND ESPN.com, and DEAR Lord-ey And I know it's only PreSeason and all, BUT Gettin' This "W" to get this dynastic freight train rollin' outta the station for The New York Jets, must feel pretty darn good, ya know?
So, I go on NFL.com first...And man, I HAD ta check out the top-story after reading the headline:
WATCH: A Bloody Mess
See how The Jets drew first blood in the New Meadowlands Turf War, busting Eli Manning's head wide open.
So I click on the link, and it started with the NFL.com video, And so Sanchez throws a pic and The Giants score, and then there's some (2) sweet 5 yard runs by Shonne Green, and a few more Jets plays were shown (I thought it musta been a few offensive drives for the jets, with the sheer amount of air-time spent on the jets- but I guess it was just 1 drive)...And so after several minutes or so, The Jets score.
And then I'm unsure what exactly happened, because it cuts to The Giants again, and man-they're at the 1 yard line of The Jets, and so THEN Eli Manning steps back, bumps into Brandon Jacobs, and the ball pops outta Eli's hand, and then what happens next is that during the confusion of the loose ball, Eli's hit from the behind-side of his back, and his helmet pops off from all of this combined, and his head goes forward and hits someone else's facemask. I thought it was a pretty funny broken play overall, But then I saw that Eli's forehead was bleeding because of the miscommunication with Brandon Jacobs & the broken play...anyway, he needed a couple stitches and they said he's fine.
BUT sooo weird, THIS is precisely where the NFL.com video ends (they didn't even SHOW Eli Manning getting KILLED by the jets like they said they were gonna, What's Up wid dat? It musta happened later in the game). Anyway, so I'm thinkin': HOW the heck did the game turn out...WHY didn't they show the rest of the game (weird)?
So, in the end I gotta click on the box score in order to see how the Jets/Giants Game turned out, And so they tell me:
"EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Mark Sanchez was sharp, while Eli Manning needed stitches.
The Giants quarterback needed 12 stitches to close the cut, and showed no sign of concussion after being hurt with 10:45 left in the first half.
Sanchez led the Jets on three scoring drives, overcoming an interception on his first pass, while playing the entire first half in the first football game played at the New Meadowlands Stadium.The teams traditionally meet in the third game of the preseason, but both wanted to be part of the unveiling of their new $1.6 billion, 82,500-seat home."
WOW, just idk-W-O-W fellow Pats's Fans...The New York Jets MUST have simply LIT UP the place...sheez! So alright, alright-There were also like 6 videos (4 or 5 of them were Jets Highlight clips), But anyway- I wanted to get another perspective on matters (honestly though, they really must have killed the giants)...So regardless, I go and check out ESPN.com...
Checking out ESPN.com, I click on the The NY Jets verses NY Giants Top Headline-Story (top of the page), And what da hey-? It's Eli Manning gettin' some stitches because of what...There was some OTHER busted play with Eli Manning & Brandon Jacobs? 'Cause, it said this:
"That's when the busted play happened, and it looked like the Giants' worst nightmare as Manning made like a human pinball. He absorbed three consecutive shots from colliding with Jacobs to getting pummeled by Pace on a clean shot to his unprotected head hitting Leonhard's facemask."
So, I'm just guessin' here? But then, Manning has that broken micommunication play accident with Jacobs, THEN he comes back in the game later on, And then Gets Utterly PUMMELED by The Jets Defense, just like how they said it from above! Right?
Either way, I say to myself: "Enough of this already...Tell Me MORE about the other parts ofthe game DARN IT!"
So ESPN.com does...I click on the only other article on ESPN about this Jets vs Giants matchup, and The Headline Reads the following:
Jets's Starters Sharp, Eli Manning bloodied in opening of New Meadowlands Stadium
And so man, simply judging by the article-WHAT a Jets Victory, It MUST have been... Here it is:
"Initially, we were all concerned and scared," Giants center Shaun O'Hara said. "When you see a quarterback bleeding like that, it was something out of a Friday The 13th movie."
It turned out to be only a really gruesome cut that took 12 stitches to close. Manning had X-rays taken and showed no sign of concussion after being hurt with 10:45 left in the first half.
"It's really not an injury," he said. "Nothing serious. I really feel like I could go back out and play right now if I had to."
There was no need for that because his replacement, Jim Sorgi, got the Giants' offense moving enough against the Jets' backup defense.
"As happy as I was with the way our ones played, I was totally disappointed with the way our twos played," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. "We got whipped by them."
Mark Sanchez led the Jets on three scoring drives, overcoming an interception on his first pass, while playing the entire first half in the first football game played at the New Meadowlands Stadium.
"Based on the way we moved the ball up and down the field, aside from the interception on the first pass," Sanchez said, "I was happy with my performance."
The teams traditionally meet in the third game of the preseason, but both wanted to be part of the unveiling of their new $1.6 billion, 82,500-seat home.
The big night ended early for Manning, who was hurt when running back Brandon Jacobs rumbled up the middle and smacked into him with his shoulder on a fake handoff.
After losing the ball, Manning tried to grab it, but was smacked in the middle of his back by Calvin Pace. Manning's helmet was knocked off, pushing him forward, face-first. Manning's head plowed into either Jets safety Jim Leonhard or Jacobs, and the quarterback quickly called for the training staff, his hand covered in blood.
"I looked up at the [videoboard] and saw his helmet came off and Jim was coming, and then he was bleeding," Pace said. "We were just kind of playing football."
This was a Jets home game and the stadium was filled with the team's logos and colors. The Jets also inducted the first six members of their ring of honor, including Joe Namath, who led the franchise to its only Super Bowl in 1969.
"Amazing," Sanchez said. "It was great to see the whole stadium lit up in green and we'll be excited to play every home game here."
The kinks were still being worked out in the stadium as a fire alarm went off in the first quarter that knocked out the public address system until the second quarter.
The Giants host the first regular-season football game against the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 12. The Jets will host their first game the following night, again in front of a national Monday Night Football audience, against the Baltimore Ravens.
"The stadium was beautiful," Jacobs said. "The only bad thing today was the stadium was dressed in green."
Sanchez showed no signs of being tentative in his first game since having the patella-stabilizing ligament in his left knee repaired in February. He was 13 for 17 for 119 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown pass to Brad Smith in the first quarter that tied it at 7.
Tomlinson, who played sparingly in the preseason in his nine seasons in San Diego, had 17 yards on eight carries. He also had a 14-yard touchdown run, flashing some nifty moves, nullified by a holding penalty.
"I'm getting back into football shape," he said. "It's something to build on."
One player the Jets didn't have was Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis, who is holding out in a contract dispute.
The Giants, who didn't have several starters play due to injuries, took an early lead by capitalizing on a mistake by Sanchez. On the Jets' second play from scrimmage, Sanchez threw into double coverage to Tomlinson, who had the ball tip off his hands and right to Antrel Rolle. The Giants' safety, acquired from Arizona in the offseason, returned it 59 yards before being tackled at the 1 by Dustin Keller.
~IN The END, There was EXACTLY 1 Single Sentence left, but boy, was I tired. REGARDLESS You ALL Have GOTTA hand it to The Jets for starting their Run at Their inevitable 2010-11 Lombardi off on the right foot! Personally, as a Pats's Fan, I'm already pretty wary of facin' such a terrifying foe that's already destroying other squads, And not simply by just the outrageous point differential that the jets obviously had over the giants here in this preseason opener, BUT they apparently left their foe, the Giants, In nothing less than withered tatters & broken heaps on the field of play too! Heck of a year, heck of a year...
