Mark Sanchez pilots Jets to 24 - 7 victory over Houston Texans

Wow. What a game! What a rookie! And not only does Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez know how to fill out a uniform, he knows how to throw and pass a football! Touchdown!

Sanchez, in his first NFL start, away, while he made a couple of rookie mistakes looked like a pro -- and threw way fewer picks than Brett Favre.

Running back Leon Washington was amazing, as was fellow running back Thomas Jones. And the Jets defense? Brilliant. Jets defensive tackle Kris Jenkins is an animal!

Yeah, yeah. I know it's only one game -- and the first game of the season -- but I am PSYCHED, people.














And yes, those are my pictures. And they're so grainy because I took them while screaming at the TV. GO GO GO GO JETS!!!

If this keeps up, the spouse may need to get me a Sanchez #6 jersey for my birthday (which is 11/6) -- and new vocal cords.

Vocal "chords" will definitely make your voice more musical.

I cannot join you in your pro-Jets sympathies, as I support the only NFL team to actually play in New York State. Fortunately I will not be able to watch their opener against The Hooded One this evening; I suspect it is going to be a long season for the Bills.

Oops. Thanks Dave. I knew there was a reason I felt like singing all yesterday afternoon. : )

"Fortunately"? But the Bills have T.O.! (Stop snorting.) Of course, the Patriots have Brady back and are 10.5 point home favorites....

Dave -- so why are the Bills playing in Toronto when the Jets visit them???

As for the jets, I loved Sanchez's poise, but he did make a few bad decisions (to be expected) but I love his spirit, leadership and fearlessness.

It is just one game, but it does feel as if the Jets have a new attitude - maybe even an identity??

@Thomas (aka TommyMac71): I forgot about the whole Toronto thing! And there's even a site called "Bills In Toronto." Man, I would love to fly up and watch that game, live. (Love Toronto. Buffalo? Not so much.)

@Dave S.: Am looking forward to reading your thoughts re Toronto...

As a season ticket holder for over 25 years, I am pumped!!! Looking forward to being at the stadium next Sunday!

Toronto is a great city with, from what I understand, excellent pro sports facilities. I would be saddened but not surprised if the Bills were to relocate there, at which point team pessimists would become "eh-sayers."

Only 10.5 point favorites? The Pats will recover a fumble for a TD during the team introductions, for Pete's sake.

Mark Sanchez has come a long way in a short period of time. His own coach, Peter Carroll said that he wasn't ready for the NFL before the draft and encouraged him to stay another year. I think Sanchez has all the intangibles to continue to win in the league, and the arm and guts to stare down the barrel and deliver a strike.
