Jets gameday is here
The shuffle is evidence how horrible the right guard position has been for Miami this year.
Meanwhile, it is truly a beautiful day at the Meadowlands. Cool, sunny, perfect day for football, and I want to suggest you pay attention to a couple of issues as this game between Miami and the Jets unfolds.
The Jets are 28th in the NFL at stopping the run so this would be a perfect day for Ronnie Brown to finally have a monster game. I'm talking 140 yards or so, considering the Jets have yielded at least 147 yards rushing in each of their last four games.
Also, the Jets are poor starters for some reason. They have not scored a first-quarter point all season. We'll see if the Dolphins can extend that streak against them today.
Finally, it will be interesting to see if Joey Harrington improves off last week's performance. He must. It's good he was more decisive than Daunte Culpepper and more moblie than Culpepper and all that other stuff you've already heard about. But he did throw two interceptions and no touchdowns last week.
So let's see if he can avoid the big turnover and actually get the team in the end zone today.
One more thing: The Culpepper bashing was all over the Sunday morning pregame shows. The CBS show did a film study on how Culpepper was holding the football too long. Duh.
The Fox show had Terry Bradshaw taking this swipe at Culpepper: "I never was a Culpepper fan because I thought Randy Moss made him the great quarterback that he was in Minnesota. Without Moss, Culpepper is a just a good quarterback."
So let me know what you think of the game as it happens, at halftime, and of course, afterward.
