Ravens’ Defense Shuts Up Jets

The most anticipated game of the opening weekend and all we got was a 10-9 struggle.  Sure the Ravens won, we’re happy about that.  We’re happy that the Jets couldn’t do shit on offense.  74 passing yards for “phenom” Mark Sanchez.  I’m not sure I’ve written it down before but I’ve said it many times to date, Mark Sanchez is going to have a not-so-spectacular year.  He’s not the quarterback y’all think he is.  He is no Brady, Manning, Brees, or Rogers.  Frankly, he’s no Matt Ryan, Donovan McNabb or even Carson Palmer.  I’d even take Joe Flacco, Tony Romo, and Eli Manning over him.  This kid is average at best.  He won’t lose again, but he won’t win one for you either.  The Ravens, on the other hand, got the victory.  But I have to admit, I’m a little disappointed with the 10 points.  This team was supposed to be much improved offensively.  They signed Anquan Boldin and Houshmanzadeh, 2 marquee receivers.  Add them to Derrick Mason, Todd Heap and that 2 pronged running attack of Ray Rice and Willis McGahee and these guys should easily be putting up gaudy numbers week in and week out.  I’m gonna chalk this one up to a combination of the Jets’ D and first game jitters. But I better see some fireworks next week at Cincinnati.
