Just As I Suspected:

I posted a Blog on the Sunday of week 1 & it had to do with my concerns as to how the Ravens would adapt to losing Head Coach Rex Ryan & some other personnel.I was also curious to see how the Jets would fare with their new Head Coach.To be quite honest so far things have turned out to be somewhat accurate.The Jets turned in 2 impressive games against 2 of the more offensive teams in the league.I would attribute the victory over New England to rust on the part of Brady.I'd even say that Welker going down played a part psychologically as well as schematically.However there's no doubt the Jets sent the Pats a clear message;we ain't the same old Jets anymore.They really took it to,in my opinion,one of the most explosive offenses in the league.Any football fan knows what kind of weapons the Texans have on the offensive side of the ball.Slaton at RB,Johnson(who I heard a professional analyst on TV call the best WR in the game,which I believe is arguably so) at WR,& 2 of the most underrated offensive players in the league,TE Owen Daniels & QB Matt Schaub.As far as the Ravens go I must admit I'm a bit surprised that they,granted after only 2 weeks, have been scored upon the way they have.As I said in my 'pre-season' blog about these two teams,I wouldn't be surprised to see Baltimore slip a little bit,particularly on the defensive side of the ball,but just not to the extent they have in weeks 1 & 2.The Jets,I was pretty sure they'd be improved.
