Speechless.  I expected a hard fought game.  I expected a low scoring affair.  Favre was going to get hit hard and sacked often.  Running the ball would be difficult.  Kerry Collins would have a monster game.  The previous sentence is a joke… I never expected Kerry Collins to have a good game.  I also never expected the Jets to come in and manhandle the undefeated Titans.

It looked like a lopsided arm wrestling match.  You know, for the briefest of moments the outcome is in doubt.  Then, WHAM!  one trucker slams the other trucker’s hand down on the table.  They quickly reposition and rematch or rewrestle or whatever they call it.  WHAM!  Hats are turned around!  WHAM!  They even go as far as to switch arms.  WHAM!  WHAM! WHAM! The same result every time.  The trucker with the green hat is just plain stronger than the other dude.

This Jets appeared far superior to the Titans in all fazes of the game.  Our offense put up points, our defense stopped them from putting up points, and therefore we won the game.  Thomas Jones and Leon Washington are now the leading running tandem in the league, Kris Jenkins continues to terrorize O-lines, and Brett Favre continues to score points.

Thomas Jones is the every down back.  While not huge, I’d describe his build as dense.  Not dense like stupid, but you know, like rock solid.  Other things that are dense…

  • Bowling Balls
  • French Bulldogs
  • Hg
  • Derby Pie (also very rich)

Leon Washington is a speedy runner who eludes tacklers by hiding behind the big lineman who are blocking for him. Other things that are elusive…

  • Big Foot
  • Wet Bar of Soap
  • Greased Pumpkins
  • Judge Crater

Kris Jenkins is a gigantic prescence in the middle of the defensive line.  Other things that are gigantic…

  • Grand Canyon
  • The Great Wall of China
  • Carnival Cruise Ships
  • Brett Favre’s pile of fan mail

With Brett Favre driving the offense, the Jets have scored 323 points- that’s second in the league only to the Giants.  In all of last season the Jets only scored 268 points.  Favre knows how to score.   Other things that can score…

  • Judges at an ice dancing competition
  • Michael Jordon
  • Tommy Chong
  • Tommy Lee

I’ve literally spent all week swimming in the crazy press blitz that’s been conjured by Favre and the Jets.  They’ve been on the cover of the sports sections of not only the Post and Daily News but also (you might want to sit down for this) the New York Times! Any Jets fan will tell you that there’s practically no point in reading the Times if you’re looking for Jets coverage.  You might get a little bit the day after a game but that’s it.  Saturday?  Not a shot in hell.  Betcha 5 bucks we’ll see a Favre article come this weekend.

One of the things I caught while sifting through recap after recap was Jerricho Cotchery on First Take this past Monday morning. He discussed the fact that while other running back committees in the league had nicknames (Thunder and Lightning- Earth, Wind, and blah blah blah), the leading running tandem of Jones and Washington have yet to be tagged.  So, without further ado, Let’s get to it.

Gimme comments people. Get in on this…

Thomas Jones and Leon Washington aka-

  • Divide and Conquer
  • Yin and Yang ( Hiiiiiiiiiii  YaaaaaahhhH!)
  • Cash and Carry
  • The Rock’n Roll Express
  • Rhythm and Bruise
  • Fast and the Furious
  • The Pounding Fathers (you know- Thomas and Washington)

    I have a thought for naming the Jets running back tandem:
    Smash and Dash

    Although I find the Pounding Fathers more amusing it’s probably too subtle to catch on.
