    Just wondering if all the the Jets (e.g. Rex Ryan, Antonio Cromartie, etc) unsubstantiated trash talk this week has turned previous Patriots-haters into Patriots fans for at least the week? At this point I want New England to beat the Jets by 100 and see if that’s enough to get Ryan fired for completely embarrassing his team.

      It seems to me that they’re just having fun with it (the trash talk). Look, the Pats are going to absolutely annihilate the Jets, and I think most Jets players know this. I mean, they’re obviously heavily favored here. I see nothing wrong with a little trash talk to lighten the mood.

        Yeah, you’re probably right. It’s entertaining at least. I still stand by my last sentence though 🙂

          I’m impressed by Rex Ryan for his audacity. He has no business trash talking Belichick.. I mean these guys aren’t even in the same league, but he does it anyway. Conversely, I’d love to see a Jets win this weekend but you’re not going to catch me trash talking any of my Patriots-loving friends.

        I agree, it all part of the entertainment. The problem is it seems like none of the other games are getting any national coverage. The Steelers-Ravens matchup is going to be a street brawl! The GB-Atl game should be a good one, and the Bears-‘Hawks game is watchable (for a little while anyway) just in case the Seabirds decide to do something on the road besides lay down and die on it.

    Tonight's Game: New York Jets @ Toronto Bills 

    Don’t even get me started on the Toronto thing. NFL.com’s Nick Bakay sums up the situation pretty succinctly:

    If you have any illusions that this counts as a home game, peep the Jets tilt this Thursday on NFL Network, and count the Bills jerseys in the stands. Last year against Miami, it took CBS three quarters to find one, but there were thousands of Dolphins threads.

    So just in case your start/sit decision on a Buffalo player hinges on the fact that this is a “home” game – think again.

    Anyway, since many folks have to make roster decisions today, let’s do a quick start-or-sit for tonight’s players: (More …)

      Thursday night football this year has been terrible. Including Thanksgiving, the following teams have played: San Francisco, Chicago, Carolina, Miami, Oakland, Dallas, Detroit, Green Bay, Denver, New York Giants, and now the Jets and Bills. Next week is Pittsburgh and Cleveland…ugh. It’s not until week 15 that we get a match-up that is half-way interesting (Indy vs Jacksonville) and even then, the Colts will probably be resting Peyton Manning. Awesome!

        I think the Miami – Carolina game was good considering the two teams story lines going in. And for AFC East fans tonights game was an important one.

        Hasn’t been MNF caliber though.

        If Manning rests, it might make the Indy Jag game more interesting lol. The Jags have been awfully inconsistent this season. If Mannings in, it could be a pretty lopsided and boring game.

      Well, this went more or less as I expected.

      Since my cable provider doesn’t include the NFL Network, I’m glad that I’m not missing anything… I’m secretly hoping the NFL Network fails so they’ll bring these games back to the masses.

      • Matt 10:12 am on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not secretly hoping for the NFL Network’s demise – I hope the thing crashes and burns, and everyone involved gets fired.

          LOL… an Enron-style implosion would be fantastic.

        • Squish 12:54 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sounds good to me, just as long as I get more games. Though not much interesting has taken place on Thursdays so far this year…

    If your league doesn’t use a waiver system, you should be picking up Jets running back Shonn Greene this morning. It looks like Leon Washington will be out the rest of the year with a broken fibula and Greene will now be splitting carries with Thomas Jones. Given the opportunity this weekend against the Raiders, all he did was rush 19 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns…

      In a league where I have Leon Washington as a bench player, Beanie Wells is also available. Who should I try to go for? Him or Greene? (not a dynasty/keeper league and non-PPR)

      • b @ 12StepDrop 11:09 am on October 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think Greene is the way to go. Wells is competing not only with Hightower but also a pass-first offense. Jones and Greene are going to be relied on more and more to take the burden off of Sanchez’s sometimes iffy shoulders. With Jones at 31 you also have to consider the possibility that Greene might slip into the starting role with a late season injury.

      • Ken 3:40 pm on October 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d def go with Greene as well. To add to what 12stepdrop said. the Jets O-line is going to help Greene out as well.

        My RB situation has been horrendous this year. Washington has been my RB1 or 2 all season, thats how bad it’s been. And I saw it get even worse when he went down in the game (best of luck to him btw, i hope its not career ending, that guy deserves to be able to continue what should be a great career and eventually get the paycheck he deserves) I picked up Greene 5 minutes later based on what I saw of him against the saints and figuring my running game can’t get any worse even if he does nothing. unfortuantely I can’t use the 26 points he put up this week, but with the way he played he has the potential to match or surpass TJ fantasy productivity level.

        Nothing is guarnteed, and it was ony the raiders. But still he did more with his carries then Jones did. If he can keep that up, he may not even need an injury to TJ to replace his as the number 1 guy.

        I may have just saved my RB situation by losing my “star” back this season hah

      • Squish 4:20 pm on October 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        If the choice is between Beanie Wells and Greene, your options are about even but I like Wells better. Word has it that he’s now the primary ball carrier in Arizona and will see the majority of the touches. Greene did all fine and well last night but don’t expect the Jets to do that well on the ground again anytime soon. As previously stated, Washington was a fantasy backup and so shall Greene be.

        Another reason to grab Wells is his fantasy playoff schedule which is pretty much the most favorable out of any RBs.

        That being said, it’s a good time to grab both of these guys for championship games as both of them will likely be starting that game with Greene almost guaranteed to do so since the Jets should clinch a WC birth before the final couple weeks.

        • Ken 7:03 pm on October 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I disagree slightly here. Wells “may” have won a starting role. Hightower was pulled after the fumble, but Wells has had his problems with ball control as well and fumbled as well. Lucky for him it went out of bounds.

          Considering that, he may lose favor again with another fumble and you could see high tower replace him again. He’s seen more action then greene but has done less with it. And as 12step stated, he’s in a pass first offense. Meanwhile, with Washington out and Greene’s performance on sunday he’s gotta be guaranteed to split even with TJ

          Arizona does have a number of favorable rush games, coming sooner then the jets. But the Jets also have NE, Car, Buff in weeks 11- 13 right before fantasy playoff time. Those teams rank 22, 23, and 32 against the rush. Buffalo was the jets first 300 yard rushing game, and TJ, who Greene is closer to in style had 200 yards in that game. So the jets do have opportunities to reproduce sundays game before the playoffs hit.

          Beanie Wells might make more sense in the next 2-3 weeks, but I think Greene is the better fantasy option overall. And despite Mia and Jac as their two opponents in the next two weeks, if Greene’s performance level remains consistence, he could still post a decent 12-18 pt game in either of those two games. Well’s best post is 15 points in my league, and all other games have been 2.x. I’m going with Greene here.

      • Brandon 6:47 pm on October 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey Shirley, I’d go with Shonn Greene for sure. The Jets are a run-first team and Greene is their second option. The Cardinals are a pass-first team and Tim Hightower will still see a lot of the goal-line carries and third downs, since he’s a solid pass catching running back.

      • Shirley 9:33 am on October 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Thank you everyone for your comments. I did have Greene higher on my list but someone higher up than me on the waiver order got him. Ended up getting Beanie Wells in two leagues though.

    Jets’ wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery will miss this weekend’s game with the Bills, so make sure you bench him and put in an alternate. On a side note, this seems like an unfortunate time for an injury for Cotchery, with Braylon Edwards now in town and quickly becoming one of Sanchez’s favorite targets. I’m sure Jerricho wants to get out there as soon as possible so he doesn’t become forgotten/expendable.

      Also its probably important to note Rashard Mendenhall missed practice with Flu-like symptoms. they say the choice between Parker/Mendenhall will be a game time decision.

    The rumors circulating that Thomas Jones might be dealt were at least a little plausible given the fact that his backup Leon Washington is likely to make a lot more than him this season, but the Newark Star-Ledger seems ready to put them to rest.
