Saturday's sad performance has left me yearning for our 'glory days'. I miss Tom Terrific and Woodson and all the other guys who made me smile. Well, the football gods have provided!
Monday Night Football.
You can tune in to ESPN at 8 pm tonight and see 5 (FIVE) Wolverine Alumni go at it as the FINS take on the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets!
Normally when I watch games, I root for whomever has a Michigan Man on the team---but tonight's game will have my allegiances split.
The game will be played in Miami, at the best-named stadium around....
The home-field Dolphins come in to Week 5 with an underwhelming record of 1-3 in the AFC East. Chad Henne will make his second start at QB, protected on the left side by #1 draft pick Jake Long. Henne led the Fins to a 38-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills last week.
The Jets come into this match-up leading the AFC East at 3-1 after a big loss to New Ahlins last week. They are led by their noobie QB Mark Sanchez. Braylon Edwards is now in uniform for New York and it will be interesting to see if he can a) quickly adapt to the offense, b) hang on to the ball, and c) beat up Eli Manning's best friend??? David Harris has 33 tackles in 4 games from his linebacker spot and 2 sacks to date. Jay Feely, kicker extraordinaire, missed practice due to a family issue, but scouting reports expect him to play. I've read in a few spots that there was a death in Feely's family, and if so, I send my sincere condolences for sure.
The line on this game is close---Jets by 2. Given my complete and utter adoration of Tom Brady, I'm pulling for the Fins, just so the Jets can fall a bit in the standings......either way, it should be a good game with lots of back stories and drama.
