So the Jets went to Cincinnati to play the Bengals in the first round of the playoffs. This time no one was lying down, Cincinnati had all its starters and played hard.
What can I say? Only this
The kid quarterback came through, the running game kicked ass, and the Gang Green defense hung tough. They gave up way too many yards to Cedric Benson, but made Carson Palmer look like the rookie, not Sanchez. And Revis shut down Ochocinco once again, despite the refs helping out Ocho with several truly bogus calls against Darrell.
Next week will be much tougher. I’ll just savor this one for a while.
The evening game… well, that was distressing. Philadelphia let down the Green Team badly. How can the Eagles play so well against my Giants whenever they meet, and stink up the place against the hated Cowboys three times in the same season???
Dallas looked unstoppable. But they are still evil. The sight of Jerry Jones laughing and grinning and slapping high-fives with W almost made me gag. The worst owner in sports and the worst president in my lifetime yukking it up.
Sigh. Well, there are still a lot of games to play…
