Best, worst matchups of 2009:
Best: New York Jets at New Orleans – All head coaches have a certain mad scientist side to them. Sean Payton of New Orleans and Rex Ryan of the Jets are no exceptions. Payton is an offensive schemer of the highest order and loves to throw. Ryan is his defensive counterpart.
He is? Huh. We shall see. I suspect whoever was playing the Jets this weekend would've been selected as Jason's best.
Worst: Tampa Bay at New Orleans – At least one, if not both, of these teams will be mailing it in by the end of this season. My bet is on both.
WHAT??? Well now we have a conundrum, what to do, what to do. Is the proper procedure to object strenuously and proclaim the Saints to be The Team in 2009, or wait until they prove themselves to be that without a doubt and THEN shove it in the naysayers' faces??? We all must make this choice for ourselves. Vaya con Dios.
