I'll say this...it's cool because we did draw the best preseason week for national coverage. However, there's no way we get into this timeslot without the Jets.
Network can have it both ways. If Jets play well, then the story is about how Sanchez/The Golden Calf of Bristol is a sensation. If the Jets don't play well (seems more likely) then the Rex Ryan meltdown can be the story.
Either way, the Jets are the story. They will probably talk about The Golden Calf of Bristol more than Cam, regardless of results.
Don't get me wrong...I'm not bitter...hell, it's preseason, It's just a fact that the Networks try to cover NY teams as much possible. Carolina will be in the back seat on this ride. If all goes well, the commentators (can't stand Collinsworth) will be forced to focus on The utterly dominant play of Johnson, Kuechly, Newton, Tolbert, etc.
Either way...this is one of those games I might have to watch on mute and listen to the radio broadcast...or silence...
So the Jets haven't scored a TD this preseason..
