Yesterday, I got on the horn with Brian Bassett from The Jets Blog to preview the Bills and Jets.
Essentially, if the Jets lose this one, they’re not nearly as good as I thought they were after the first quarter of Week 1, when I — normally a huge skeptic when it comes to the Jets — announced to my wife that they were Super Bowl-bound.
The Bills are terrible. Watching Eric Mangini and Dick Jauron match wits in last week’s Browns-Bills matchup was like watching a chess match between, well, between Eric Mangini and Dick Jauron. It might have been the worst football game I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a ton of really, really bad football games.
Did you know that in ten years, from pee-wee to high-school football, I played on a total of one winning team? And yet every single one of those terrible, terrible clubs executed better and protected the quarterback more successfully than the Bills and Browns.
Someone, I forget who, said on Twitter that it was setting football back 50 years. I don’t think that’s appropriate. It wasn’t football. It was like some new sport where someone just threw 22 random huge dudes out on a field and watched to see what happens. It’s called Ham!Smash! and Eric Mangini is its greatest mind and motivator.
Anyway, here’s the video. J-E-T-S.
