Jerry Recco made the decision to begin his first update of the morning with a thorough recap of the Jets’ embarrassing loss to the Seahawks in Seattle. The final score was 28-7, but fair to say the game wasn’t even ‘that close.’
First we heard the great Marv Albert break down the Jets’ slim playoff chances after their inept offense performance which yielded a grand total of zero points. The Jets’ lone score came courtesy of defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson’s first-quarter 21-yard fumble return for a TD. When the final gun sounded, Rex’s Gang was on the wrong side of a 28-7 final and now have a record of 3-6 and countless questions moving forward.
Following the game Rex Ryan was understandably irritable, and things got a little testy between the Jets head coach and a reporter by the name of Dan Leberfeld from ‘NY Jets Confidential.’ Leberfeld was looking for clarification as to why Rex believes he can win with Mark Sanchez as his starting quarterback, comparing Rex’s relationship with Sanchez to a ‘fatal attraction.’
As for Sanchez, he says he is too confident to worry about being benched and his teammate Antonio Cromartie addresses those who are calling for a QB change.
Before the Jets game even began, the Giants were in the midst of getting beat down in Cincinnati by the Bengals – Who Dey! When the finals gun sounded the Giants were outscored 31-13 and now have lost two straight heading into their Week 11 bye.
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green made headlines after his comments about the Giants’ defense having ‘a lot of holes’ – which he said right here on the Morning Extravaganza last Thursday – took on a life of their own. Well Sunday afternoon Green’s observations rang true, as Big Blue’s secondary was lit up, yielding 199 passing yards and 4 TDs to Andy Dalton – who must have compared notes with A.J.
Eli Manning’s postgame comments had Craig thinking about ‘Kung Fu Fighting,’ while Corey Webster thinks the bye week will serve the Giants well.
Plus, Jerry runs down the rest of the NFL scoreboard – which wraps up tonight in Pittsburgh when the Chiefs and Steelers battle it out and the Lakers hire Mike D’Antoni – not Phil Jackson – as their new head coach…
