Jets Move Forward, Yankees Idle

The New York Jets edged out the Colts to move forward in the post season, meaning Rex Ryan has finally beaten Peyton Manning. I don't really follow football that much, but is it at all strange that a coach wanted to beat a player that badly? Ryan sounded oddly obsessive about Peyton Manning. Like Manning had eaten his dog in front of his family or something. It just seems odd. But that's not my world. My world is on break for what seems like an eternity. In case you're just tunning into the Yankees off season, I'll catch you up:

-Derek Jeter's gangster will be respected in the Bronx for at least three more years.
-Mariano's signed for two more years.
-Russel Martin is now a Yankee.
-We got a bunch of relievers including Pedro Feliciano.
-We still need two starters (Pettitte leaning towards retirement), a 4th outfielder (Yankees have been tied to Andruw Jones), and potentially an 8th inning setup guy for Mariano.

I would have pegged Ryan as the dog eater in that matchup. Just saying.

That's a good point. He's now saying this next game is "personal". Maybe the only way he can get motivated for a big game is to pretend there's some sort of personal vendetta involved. Or maybe he really just has a personal vendetta with every other NFL team.

Russel who?

Haha, no respect for the poor guy. He was supposed to be an elite catcher before his numerous hip injuries.
