Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
New York Knicks
Week 7 Record: 1-2
Season Record: 8-12-1
In honor of Hurricane Sandy, Snowicane, The Frankenstorm – whatever you want to call that crazy thing we’re supposed to get early next week that’s supposed to turn New York City on its ear, I’m going to flip things around this week and start my piece off with my Bonus Non-Football Bet of The Week. I’m 3-4 on the season with these, but the game I’m going to pick this week is one that’s closer to my heart than any other pick I’ve ever made on this site – next Thursday’s season opener for the New York Knicks against the Brooklyn Nets, Round 1 of the New York-Brooklyn turf war. Now it’s way too early for the line for this game to have come out, but this pick is much more symbolic anyway. I’m taking the Knicks outright, whatever the moneyline is.
I guess its natural that the Nets are being overrated heading into this season. The shiny new arena, all the Jay-Z crap, a new name and all will do that for you. But let’s get one thing patently straight

Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine's job just got a little bit harder, and it's all because a couple of guys couldn't keep their mouths shut.

Of all the things to take Bart Scott out of a game, would anyone have expected it to be turf toe? The New York Jets linebacker, who has played in 119 straight games, will miss tomorrow's game against the Miami Dolphins. Scott has not missed a game since 2005, and his streak has been an inspiration for the Jets' defense.

DAVIE, Fla. During a conference call Wednesday with South Florida reporters, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan used the word "huge" five times in describing his team's game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
