    I hate the Patriots, but it's pretty clear they are going to walk right to the Super Bowl again and win it all. I see no one able to stay on their level.

    Tom Brady and that offense is just too dominant. They run over even some of the best defenses. Plus their defense has also improved a lot from last season as they've become a top defensive team.

    I'm guessing it'll be Patriots vs. Packers/Giants (yet again...) with the Patriots coming out on top.

    Heard all this before.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    The AFC is going to come down to Manning vs Brady.... I feel its destiny

    Hopefully Manning comes out on top....

    Then the Pats will have to deal with another back to back postseason losses by the Manning bros.

    Two years ago they beat the Jets 45-3 on MNF in December and when they met again in the playoffs everyone and their brother predicted another blowout win. The Jets pulled off a 28-21 upset. I'm not saying the same thing will happen here but if the Texans win out then a rematch would be in Houston.

    What makes them scarier than ever before is their improvement defensively. Offensively, they continue to barrel over their opponent.

    It seems pretty likely the conference championships will be Patriots/Broncos. Packers/Giants. All teams with top level QBs.

    I don't know if Denver's defense will have an answer to stop Brady.

    However, if there is any team out there that could stop the Patriots, it is the Giants. It could once again, be NE/NYG in the Super Bowl. Both seem to be the most balanced teams in the NFL.

    I really hate to say it, but it looks like NE's year.

    Patriots are clearly the best team in the AFC. Just dominated the hyped up Texans.

    I see a Texans/Broncos vs Patriots in the AFC Championship. Hope it is the Colts in there, but if not, it'd be nice to see Peyton get another shot at Brady this season.

    NE's defense still looks soft to me.

    The Pats look a lot like the pre-SB Colts. That doesn't mean they can't win the SB, but they'd better hope the Giants aren't there waiting for them again.

    We've seen this before with NE. I still think they'll have a playoff exit. I'm still going with my early season pick --- the Giants. They're right on schedule for a typical Giants SB run... they're past their November swoon and picking up steam in December. I think Eli is the best playoff QB in the league.

    You don't lead the league in turnovers by a huge margin through being soft. That, coupled with leading the league in fewest offensive turnovers, is key to the success. But it's a nervous trend, since if one opponent doesn't make any mistakes, then that is all you need to fail.

    The cornerback play is a question mark, since Dennard is a rookie and Talib just arrived, but you can't say the front 7 is soft in the least. They are aided by the fact that they can blitz more with Talib and Dennard being solid. Wilfork was being double-teamed all night and was still pushing the O-lineman back into the QB's lap, deflecting one pass, causing a fumble, and re-routing ball carriers all the time. The lanes he was opening up for Mayo, Spikes, and the rookie Chandler Thompson to hit the QB was impressive too. Plus McCourty looks way more confident as a safety than as a corner.

    I read somewhere that the passer rating of the opposing QB had been cut in half, comparing the last 7 games to the first 7 games.

    To be honest, the defense needs to be just above average, though, because of the guy running the show on offense. Put it this way: There are QBs who tend not to make any mistakes. Then there are QBs who are gunslingers. But there is only one QB who almost always plays like a mistake-free gunslinger. Last night ESPN put up a graphic on players with the most 4 TD games, with Favre on top and other familiar names after. I said to my wife at the time "I wish they'd put up the graphic on who has thrown 4TDs with ZERO interceptions!". About 10 minutes later they did. You KNOW who is on top of that list. The QB who consistently avoids making turnovers at a rate never seen before in top NFL QBs.

    The point about the Jets blowout two years ago is a good one though. Each game is its own beast. Any please no Giants. I don't think there is another team that gives the Pats as much fits with their D-line, regular season or postseason. For some reason it's just a bad bad matchup.

    So I guess Pats fans gotta be pulling hard for the Colts in these next two games against Houston?

    Definitely. Despite last night, you don't want a re-match in Houston. Plus SF is no gimme in Foxboro, so go Colts, times 2 even!

    The Colts either get a psychologically damaged Texans team or a super pissed-off Texans team. I hope it's the first.

    I predict a loss on Sunday. But I think we'll beat them here on December 30, and if we just beat them once then that means all the Pats have to do is win out. Last night probably sealed the deal that Houston won't be able to rest anyone against us in that final game of the season, unless of course the Pats lose another game.

    Houston's other opponent is Minnesota at home. Not exactly a pushover either, though you have to think Houston wins that one.

    I can see Houston losing twice.

    This sounds funny, but the Patriots did not play particularly well last night on offense, at least after the first quarter. Welker was targeted 9 times and made three catches, dropping some very catchable balls. Hernandez had more drops than usual too. Brady went through a 1-7 stretch in the 3rd Q. They were fortunate to recover TWO lost fumbles on touchdown drives. As a team the Patriots punted more often than they have all year.

    It's being nitpicky and sounds a little crazy, but overall it was not even one of the Patriots best offensive games, start to finish, of the year. Which to me makes Houston's ineptitude more telling and, from your point of view, encouraging.

    Jets bring back Braylon Edwards





    Jets A Playoff Team?

    Sunday Blitz: Jets-Jaguars Recap





    One week after blasting the New York Jets on Twitter, calling them "idiots," Braylon Edwards is one of them -- again.


    The well-traveled wide receiver reunited Tuesday with the Jets, who acquired him on waivers. Edwards was released Monday from the Seattle Seahawks' injury-reserve list.


    The Jets were willing to forgive and forget because they're desperate for bodies at receiver. A knee injury to Stephen Hill, coupled with Edwards' release, set the stage for the unlikely reunion.






    Back Once Again, It's Incredible

    Braylon Edwards' return to the Jets immediately made six things, including a quote from "The Godfather," come to the mind of Rich Cimini. Story




    Classic Jets. They could have added any available receiver, but chose to zero in on the guy who recently ripped them, James Walker writes. Story




    Edwards took a happier tone on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

    "It feels great to be going home," Edwards tweeted. "Thanks to all of jet nation that continuously supported me and pushed for me. I'm back and it's go time."

    Edwards was a productive player for the Jets in 2009 and 2010, but they opted not to re-sign him. A week ago, he came to the defense of embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez, ripping the organization in a tweet that said: "Don't blame Sanchez. I played there. Blame the idiots calling shots. Mark is a beast and will prove it when given a proper chance."


    He apologized in another tweet, calling it an "emotional outburst" and admitting that he "disrespected and insulted an administration that I have the utmost respect for."


    A short time later, Edwards was waived/injured, landing on the Seahawks' IR list after he passed through waivers for the first time.


    The Jets' depleted receiving corps, already down Santonio Holmes (he suffered a season-ending foot injury in Week 4), lost Hill to a knee sprain Sunday in Jacksonville. Clyde Gates, whose role had increased in recent weeks, is out indefinitely with a concussion.


    It left them with only two healthy, experienced receivers, Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens. They also have journeyman Mardy Gilyard, whom they signed off the street two weeks ago, and rookie Jordan White.


    Edwards was one of Sanchez's favorite targets in 2009 and 2010, recording 88 receptions for 1,445 yards and 11 touchdowns in his two seasons in New York. Since then, he has battled knee issues and his career has declined. He caught 15 passes last season with the San Francisco 49ers and only eight this year with the Seahawks. The Jets reportedly tried to trade for him earlier this season.


    "You guys know what I've always said about Braylon in the past, so you know how I feel about him," coach Rex Ryan said Monday, when asked about the possibility of acquiring Edwards. "But right now, I think we'll just focus on the guys we have."


    The Jets waived running back Kahlil Bell Tuesday morning to create a roster spot for Edwards.


    His recent defense of Sanchez notwithstanding, Edwards took a subtle jab at the quarterback in the preseason, saying he paled in comparison to Seahawks rookie Russell Wilson.


    "I see better things," he said, comparing Wilson to Sanchez as a rookie in 2009. "It's his approach. It's very veteran-like. He studies film; he breaks it down. He

    I highly doubt Pierre knows

    I have no doubt RG3 will sit (and hope he does if he needs to) but Shanny is known for playing games with the media. I highly doubt anyone on the team knows anything.

    It's certainly not inconceivable that the player himself, or the coach, or the fellow offensive starters would have some idea on what's going to happen. Maybe the final decision hasn't been made but I'm sure they've got a decent guess.
