Sunday Morning Sports Update
by Pietro DiSante Jr,posted Nov 25 2012 9:23AM
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their family and friends. Thought I would do a little blog this morning. First off, how bad were the Jets on Thursday Night? Yes, that is a real picture of Mark Sanchez running into Brandon Moore's back-side and fumbling the ball for a Patriots touchdown. Just one of New England's three touchdowns in 52 seconds, part of a 35 point second quarter for the Patriots. Just a terrible performance by the Jets. I am still a little sick about it. I expect the Jets (who have an easy final 5 games) to go (3-2) at worst and finishing around (7-9) or (8-8). Is that enough to save Rex Ryan's job? Not sure. If the team plays hard these final five games, it could make the difference.
As for the other games Thursday:
-The Lions should have defeated the Texans MULTIPLE times, but bad teams find a way to lose and it looks like the Lions are back to their old ways. Too bad.
-RGIII and the Redskins, on the other hand, are looking great with two wins in four days and now only 1.5 games back of the Giants in the NFC East. If the Packers defeat the Giants tonight, next Monday's game between the Giants and Redskins will be for the NFC East lead. Hard to believe.
-As for the Cowboys, I am not sure about them. They have too much talent to play the way they do. Very hard to explain Big D. I would not give up on them just yet, but they have to turn it on and fast!
-Congratulations to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on finishing out the season (12-0) and securing a spot in the BCS National Championship Game! It has been a long wait for the Irish and their fans, but they are back. And yes, some "luck" was involved. They will play the winner of the Alabama-Georgia game, which should be a great match-up.
-West Virginia's win over Iowa State made them bowl eligible, which is great, but still this is a very disappointing season. They are (6-5) now, likely will beat Kansas to improve to a (7-5) season, but what happens next year when they lose all their playmakers?
-The Michigan-Ohio State game was pretty fun to watch yesterday. Still a great rivalry. Watch out for Ohio State next season. Amazing how great of a coach Urban Meyer is.
-The Wizards hosted the Bobcats last night. The (0-10) Wizards almost got their first win of the season, but instead lost in double overtime to drop to (0-11). That was a close one. I thought they would actually win a game. Tough times in DC.
Well, more games have been cancelled. Now it is til December 14th. Not looking good folks. I am not happy about this at all. I don't get it. I feel bad for the fans too. 95% of the country does not care about hockey and the players and owners are ruining it for the 5% that do. Pathetic. Absolutely terrible.
High School Football:
Congratulations to the Martinsburg Bulldogs on making it to their 3rd straight Championship Game. Hopefully they can win it and make it a 3-peat for the Eastern Panhandle!
