Why the Jets will win…….and Lose

Jets Rumors & News

The BUZZ in New York 

Three reasons why the Jets won’t beat the Eagles on Sunday:

1. Head Coach Andy Reid is 8-0 following the bye week and he tends to let the players spend most of the week resting.

2. Donovan McNabb plays his best when he’s not pressured. The Giants sacked him 12 times (Eagles lose, 16-3) while the Lions sacked him just three times (Eagles win, 56-21). The Jets have three sacks all season and have struggled to even put pressure on the opposing QB.

Four World Series titles, 12 playoff appearances and the respect of most everyone who has ever dealt with him should earn him better treatment than this.
