    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:

    "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. "

    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 **** grammar.

    **** 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.
