Show Us...


I have spent alot of this season, beginning all the way back to training camp in July, wanting this team to grab the attention of the league and the media.  I thought they were being sold short in most preseason predictions, and felt a distinct disrespect for the franchise.  Of course, this was compounded by seemingly endless hard-on that many "experts" had for the Jets.  A team, by the way, that I hate more than cancer.  I spent the first half of the season, give or take, begging and pleading for this team to show everyone out there the talent and potential that most of us saw the whole time.  Now, going into the last quarter of what has amounted to really nothing more than ANOTHER mediocre season, I have changed my tune.  I now have a new mantra:

Fuck them.  Show us....

Show us, your ridiculously loyal fanbase, that we havent just been looking at life through teal and orange sunglasses for the past four months...

Show us that you really are the team that we all thought you could be after beginning the season with two road victories...

Show us that you haven't given up on this season, and still believe that alot of hard work, a lot of fortitude, and a little luck can turn this season into something memorable...

Show us, Tony Sporano, that you aren't going to go down, after three seasons, with a whimper, and that the faith Bill Parcells showed in you proved that the game hadn't quite passsed him totally bye...

Show us, Chad Henne, especially those of us, like me, that have given up on you, that we are wrong.  Show us you ARE in fact the answer.  Show me that I am impatient, and that I panicked and know nothing about football.  Make me write an apology fan post, dedicated to you one day in the near future...

Show us, Brandon Marshall, that you are worth all that was given up to acquire you.  Show this team that ignoring your Denver antics and treating you like a savior was the right decision.  Show me that you dont care how bad a QB might be playing, that you can take over a game using sheer talent and will...

Show us that you, as players, take all of this as seriously as the lunatics (like me) that spend more time than is probably normal, rooting, and fighting, and screaming for and about his team...

Show us its not just a job and a paycheck.  Show us its a passion...

This game on Sunday is my super bowl every year.  I live 5 miles from the Meadowlands, and this game gets a circle on the calendar five minutes after the schedule is released each year.  This is my Ohio State-Michigan.  This is my Yankees-Red Sox.  In a season that seems to be shaping up as another forgettable one, this is EVERYTHING... 

Like every Sunday, we will be watching, and screaming, and praying for something to go crazy for...
