... only 4 months away.

New York Jets (+4) at Houston Texans -- This is the game on which I whiffed badly. I had the Jets as two-point favorites, but it makes sense that they'd be four-point dogs with either a rookie QB (Mark Sanchez) or a bad mediocre QB (Kellen Clemens) likely starting under center.

Yahoo (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Over-the-lines-It-s-never-too-early-for-Week-1-?urn=nfl,161619) which pulled the numbers from sportsbook (http://www.sportsbook.com/livesports/indexmember.php?sportsname=football)

If they still had Favre, they'd be 3 point favorites, and the they'd still lose by 4. This way, they can lose by 10. :fans:

Are we favored to win game one and 15 games after that?

he's bad AND mediocre... what a combination. does it work like double negatives or something?

well bad is ...bad...obviously.. but mediocre is between bad and good..

So bad mediocre would be...an average QB..but on the lower end of average QBs...

so either he was trying to describe a very specific "ranking" for Clemens..or hes just got shit grammar.

shit grammar +10 over specific ranking

Well, in the article, he crossed out "bad" then put mediocre, so I think he was trying to give a better viewpoint of a not so good situation.
