BBB Betting On The Jets
So, what have the mighty media whores of the Jets done this season?
Amassed a stellar 3 – 6 record.
Lost their last three games in a row.
Lost the last two games by a combined 58 – 16 score.
Registered the following stats:
- 21 sacks
- 7 fumbles
- 9 interceptions
- -53 point differential
And now the players beat up on a guy who has a total of 33 plays all season, a better passer rating than your starting QB, a matching team average for rushing stats and, oh by the way has none, ZERO, of the said turnovers listed above?
Now lets contrast this with another 3 – 6 team which is equally media friendly.
The Washington Redskins:
They have the following stats: (note: very similar to the Jets and – like them – have lost three in a row)
- A -22 points differential
- 21 sacks
- 9 fumbles
- 5 interceptions
And despite a perceived tossing in of the towel by the head coach after their last loss, does the team throw anybody under the bus?
They vote their QB offensive Team Captain. I’m not sure I can remember the last time a rookie was voted team captain.
Coach Shanahan certainly can’t.
I wonder why I feel a lot more comfortable betting on the Skins than I do the Jets?
