Sloppy Performance By New York Jets In Win Over Oakland Raiders

The New York Jets impressed next to no one with their 19-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Gang Green made several mistakes on both sides of the football while racking up 11 penalties. Luckily for the Jets the Raiders were starting a rookie quarterback that was overwhelmed by Rex Ryan’s defense.

Linebacker Demario Davis: Jets Expect To ‘Shock The World’

Lichtenstein: Be Optimistic All You Want, But Ultimately They’re Still The Jets

Keidel: Don’t Underestimate The Giants And Overvalue The Jets

The consensus seems to be the Giants are rancid and the Jets are rising. In Wall Street vernacular, the world is bullish on the Jets, but bears on the Giants. But haven’t we heard this before?
