Jets 28, Chiels 24

Of course, this game never should've been close because the Chiefs are that bad and all the blame for that goes to Bret Favre and his 3 picks. Great games by Leon Washington and Laveraneus Coles, but the "Bad Bret Favre" has been showing up a little too much to my liking this season.

Raiders 16, Jets 13

Bottom line, after a great comeback, Favre and the Jets had four chances to win this damn game in overtime and didn't come close to getting decent yardage for even a field-goal attempt. Bad loss, really bad.

Does This Seem Familiar?

Yes, I understand that after the miracle they pulled in the 2004 ALCS the Boston Red Sox should never be counted out. But still. Down 7-0? Going into the bottom of the 7th? Unbelievable.

Larry Johnson Is A Coward

Third time arrested for assaulting a woman? That's a straight-up punk who shouldn't be allowed to put on an NFL jersey again. Can't believe Herm Edwards would allow a guy like this to play on his team:
Kansas City running back Larry Johnson has been charged with assault, his third such brush with the law since he joined the Chiefs.

Johnson, 28, was charged with a similar assault for allegedly pushing a woman at a Kansas City nightclub on February 24.

The National Football League player is scheduled to appear in court on December 3 and faces a maximum jail term of six months and a 500-dollar fine.

The 26-year-old complainant accused Johnson of pushing the left side of her head with an open hand and saying "don't touch me" as he passed them in a crowd.

Johnson faced a similar situation in 2005 when a woman accused him of pushing her to the ground at a Kansas City bar. That charge was dropped when the woman failed to appear in court.

In 2003, Johnson agreed to a domestic violence diversion program after he was charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery for allegedly waving a gun during a dispute with a former girlfriend.

Cowboys Can't Win With Wade Phillips

Of course, I'm not blaming Phillips for
Tony Romo being out a month with a broken finger and considering that the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl, it's hard to fault Phillips anymore for his team's home playoff loss last season, but there's still something about Wade Phillips that just speaks to his inability to get the most out of team. I saw it for years when he coached the Bills as they choked in every single big game and his vanilla personality just doesn't seem to inspire people. How the Cowboys do in Romo's absense will be a true reflection on Phillips' ability to coach.

Anybody But The Phillies

Really now, I thought after they put a through whipping on the Cubs and with Rafael Furcal back, the Dodgers would take out the Phillies in 5, at the most 6. But now with the Phils taking the first two games and nobody hitting besides Manny Ramirez, I'm starting to wonder if L.A. can even get a game. Bottom line, Joe Torre needs to wake his team up and fast, starting tomorrow against Jamie Moyer or else this series will be over before it started. And I'll have to look forward to a sad baseball season get even worse with the Phillies in the World Series.

Pacman Jones Punches Out Bodyguard

To think
this latest incident happened on the same day Commissioner Goodell said that he was "rooting" for him:

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was involved in a fight with one of his bodyguards, according to Dallas police, the night before attending a previously scheduled team meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

No one was arrested and no one will be charged in connection with the fight late Tuesday night at The Joule, an upscale downtown Dallas hotel.

Jones missed all of last season for Tennessee while serving an NFL suspension for off-field incidents. Goodell fully reinstated the cornerback, acquired by Dallas in a trade in April, just before the season opener.

Before meeting with the Cowboys on Wednesday, Goodell said to reporters in San Antonio: "Adam knows how much emphasis I put on making sure that he makes good choices going forward, that he avoids situations where he can reflect poorly on himself, the Cowboys or the NFL. So far he seems to have been able to do that very effectively."

Hmmm.....turns out the bodyguard has "chosen" not to press charges. Yeah, right. Can anyone say bribery?

Mets Should've Fired Omar Minaya, Kept Jerry Manuel

I like Jerry Manuel too (who doesn't?) despite the fact that he too was also a part of the two biggest collapses in Mets history. I knew it was a longshot, but I wanted the Wilpons to fire Omar Minaya and keep Manuel. Omar doing nothing to help the Mets horrible bullpen this year is the biggest reason why the Mets aren't in the playoffs, thus, giving him a 4-year deal was yet another asinine move by the Mets owners. But I'm glad that Jerry Manuel will be back, he deserves a chance to put his own stamp on this team.

Nothing Worse Than Being A Cubs Fan

Every time I think about how hard and torturous it is to be a Mets fan, I lose sight of a far worse fate: being a Cubs fan. I mean, can you imagine 100 years without a championship for your favorite team? And all the bad luck (from the infamous
black cat game in '69 to losing to the Padres in the '84 NLCS after being up 2-0 to Steve Bartman) that this sad (but very popular) franchise has had to endure over the years? Now the Cubs are the favorites to represent the NL in the World Series this year and they're already down 1-0 to a Dodger team that's really good, esp. with Manny Ramirez on it. Oh well.
