Eddie CastroWeek 1 has passed in the NFL and it was surely a week to remember.  Many players before the game held one finger in the air in reference to the possible collective bargaining which could mean no football in 2011. The symbol indicates “we are all one” a sign that brings players together from different sides of the field to fight to keep a 2011 season alive. The week was filled with miraculous catches, touchdown returns, players coming of season ending injuries and veteran players still trying to show their fans that there’s still something left in the tank. The season kick off it’s first game with a rematch of last year’s NFC championship game. The Saints knocked off The Minnesota Vikings to flex their muscles that the party is still going in the city of New Orleans.
Now as far as our beloved New York teams goes, the Giants opened the brand new Meadowlands stadium Against the Carolina Panthers. For the most part both quarterbacks struggled out of the gates making careless mistakes. The wide receivers wasn’t making Eli Manning’s job any easier as they dropped several passes which lead to punts and interceptions. Ahmad Bradshaw showed Giants fans that when healthy he can be a threat and a big benefit to the Giants running game. Bradshaw carried the ball 20 times and rushed for 76 yards including a 39 yard outburst run and a touchdown. The biggest and surprising performance in Sunday’s games has to go to Giants second year receiver, Hakeem Nicks. Nicks, has four catches on 76 yards and three touchdowns. Even though Manning converted 20 of 30 pass attempts, he’ll tell u himself that it wasn’t a “Manning type” performance. The Giants came out on top to a 31-18 victory over the Carolina Panthers, due in part of the Giants defense making life hard for quarter back Matt Moore. The Giants head to Indianapolis this Sunday night for a showdown with Eli’s big brother Peyton and his Colts, only the second meeting the brothers have gone in a head-to-head matchup.
As for the New York Jets, they went in the season in a game that had players going back and forth with each other through the media to heat up their matchup with the Baltimore Ravens in the first monday night football game of the season. With all the  headlines the jets made this off-season, it was now a matter of “show me what the talk is all about” for Rex’s Ryan’s Jets. Earlier Ravens veteran line backer Ray Lewis told a reporter that Jets quarter back Mark Sanchez is not a consistent passer. “Thats just not his forte “ quoted Lewis”. For now that statement preserved to be accurate as the Jets could not get a rhythm flowing at all in the game. The Jets defense for the most part held up their end of the bargain, but the Ravens defense was better. Seconds towards the end of the game Rex Ryan was with his headset off, pacing the sidelines in disapproval. After all the super bowl talks the past eight months along with their infomercial “five-week series,”Hard Knocks” for now the Jets are being viewed as the laughing stock in the NFL after what fans and the media say is their worst opening-season loss in their history.  “ Our goal is still the same, a flustered Rex Ryan said. We want to win a super bowl, we still feel we can win one with our players, we just lost by 1 point to a hell of a Ravens team”. The Jets look like they have their championship defense to compete for a super bowl, but after a sloppy 10-9 loss, field goals just a’rent going to win u ball games against the elite teams in the league.
Whatever the Jets formula is , they need to figure out a way to get their offense going before even thinking about playing in Texas for the Lombardi Trophy. The Jets had over a 100+ yards in penalties which effected  them despite having good field position throughout the course of the game. Life does not get easier for the Jets as they have another home game against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Maybe the Jets need another look at their season ticket commercial cause this Sunday against another good team it will be “Go Time”.
