Can we just get to Sunday already? The non-stop talk by the Jets, along with the media repeating every bit of it over and over again was amusing Monday and Tuesday. By this point though, what else can be said? Lets just line ‘em up and play the game.
I’m trying to avoid the articles this morning which are solely about the talk, and link some actual football pieces:
