As a Jets fan, this past Sunday's crushing victory over the Rams is a sweet tasting meal. But the Jets have had their share of crushing defeats as well. For example the Raiders a few weeks ago. The Patriots game was a close one too, only a three point loss.
With Brett Favre throwing great, and Thomas Jones running like there is no tomorrow, the Jets seem to be putting together all their weapons for a championship run. I'm sure Patriot fans are going to jump all over me and yell at me for saying this, but I don't care how much cheating coach Bill does, the fact of the matter is the Jets are the up and coming new team in the AFC East.
There is no way around it. The Jets will be a pain the Patriot's backs for the rest of the season, and maybe even for a few years to come. The fact that Tom Brady is out doesn't make me have sympathy for them. Reality is what reality is, so the fact is: Brady's out, Brett's in, and the Jets are starting to really fly high now.
