Ante Up

So since the Redskins made Vinny look like, well, Vinny last night, I yield the floor to Rob of Left and Right.

That was one of the most pathetic displays I have ever witnessed in my 23 years on this Earth.

Good job Jet defense, holding the Redskins to 16 points even though they had the ball for about 57 minutes.

Fire Paul Hackett. Today. You could play madden 2004 in the booth and come up with better play calls than this fucking guy. 3rd and 9? lets throw a 7 yard slant! 3rd and 1? Call timeout, and still screw up the fucking play. At least 4 times tonight the Jets threw a pass 2 yards short of the sticks on 3rd down. That ain't Vinny's fault. Vinny is garbage, but it isn't his fault. Paul Hackett is the only offensive coordinator in history to throw the ball short of the first on 3rd down and just pray they get it. Its disgusting. With 11 minutes left in the 4th quarter, Curtis Martin had 12 carries for 47 yards. 12 fucking carries! He's one of the best running backs in the league, USE HIM you retard. Please god, strike Paul Hackett with lightning so the Jet fans have to endure no more? Have we not suffered enough!?!

The Roster

Here's the current roster for the Insult-a-thon. The rules are that I take the Jets, and you take whatever team, and the day after a game, whoever's team won gets to insult the hell out of the losing team, and the blogger who took said team, and the losing blogger has to sit there and take it, as well as link to it. If you want to play, leave a comment. The only rule is that you have to actually watch the game to be eligible. Here's the Current roster:

Washington - Rob
Miami x2 - OPEN (nudge nudge Frak J.)
New England x2 - OPEN
Dallas - Paul
Buffalo x2 - Kin
Houston - OPEN (I doubt anyone will take this)
Philadelphia - OPEN (Ted's in reserve)
NY Giants - Alex
Oakland - Ted
Jacksonville - OPEN
Tennessee - OPEN (nudge nudge Glenn Reynolds)
Pittsburgh - Bill

If there's a team nobody signs up for, I will randomly select a blogger from the state of that team and use them, with or without their knowledge. Unless the Jets lose, in which case I will pretend it never happened, but im sure most of you will take over and tear into them anyway.

It Has Begun


That's right ladies and gentleman(and Bill), today is the day. Thursday, September 4th, 2003. Housewives everywhere are mourning. Girlfriends all across the nations are cursing this day. Football season officially begins tonight at 9 p.m., and i'm fuckin pumped.

What better way to start the year than to watch the Jets play one of the shittiest teams in the league? Of course, with Chad Pennington out, the Jets might also BE one of the shittiest teams in the league, but that remains to be seen. The closer the regular season has gotten, the more faith in Vinny I seem to get. I am a Jet fan, so believe me, I know it's false hope. It's the same false hope I get around this time every year, just so I can wake up one day in January and say "Oh shit, it happened again." But January is a long way off, and I plan to enjoy the ride.

That being said, thank god for Herman Edwards. There is a particular Karma that exists in football, and a man like Edwards can only be seen as retribution for Rich Kotite and Bruce Coslett. With Edwards calling the shots out there, I don't have to worry about late season collapses and poor team management. Now if he would only fire that scrub Paul Hackett, we'd be in business.

Anyway, so football season starts today, I have to go dig up the roster for the insult-a-thon. Teams are still open too, so keep an eye out.

My prediction: Jets over Washington, 23-13. Curtis Martin will break 100 yards rushing, and Vinny Testaverde will throw 2 interceptions. Trung Canidate will have a poor showing.
