So the Jets beat the Giants

And since I am a dickhead Giants fan I want to point out a few things.

Actually I think it is a fair assessment. Clearly the Giants have major receiving problems but a star was born in Saturday's loss so hopefully that takes care of the fact none of the other receivers can catch footballs.

Here are my Pro's and Con's for both teams from Saturday's game:

Jets Pro's:

Sanchez looked pretty good after the 1st Quarter.

Leon Washington is what Reggie Bush was supposed to be if he did not suck.

Jets Receivers looked deeper and better than people give them credit for.

Sanchez had all day to throw.

Giants Pros:

Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw are both beasts.

Eli Manning had all day to throw.

Steve Smith was torching the secondary and then dropping passes, but he is known for his hands. This will not continue.

Hakeem Nicks is a star.

Jets Cons:

Sanchez looked completely lost in the first quarter against a secondary that was already suspect and missing it's most talented CB with an injury.

Sanchez was completing passes by being elusive and finding open people, but they were open the whole time. He needs to make better reads to win against good secondaries.

Thomas Jones sucked and the Jets line was amazing.

The Jets secondary was getting torched the entire game.

Lito Sheppard is horrendous. He has always been, do not be fooled by his Pro Bowl appearances.

Vernon Gholston is really soft.

Giants Cons:

They really need Antonio Pierce. BAD.

Pass rush couldn't get passed the Jets line.


Aaron Ross is hurt, and clearly they need him if a rookie QB torches them.

Hakeem Nicks needs more time with the 1st team. he is a star.

All in all Jets fans, Sanchez is progressing pretty well for a Rookie. However, their WR were predictably unimpressive, and he needs to make more reads. Also they need to get Leon Washington the ball, he is a star. I think things are looking up for both teams, and depending on the competition I think it is possible we could see both NY teams in the playoffs this year.
