Default Jets Game: Depressing Pool

So then...

On Sunday the Jets bring their #1 in the NFL running game (165 yards per game average) to Invesco Field to face our beloved Broncos and our 25th ranked run defense (allowing 127 yards on the ground per game)

On the other side of the ball, Denver will pit what is easily the worst rushing attack in the league (51 yards per game) against the Jets #4 ranked run defense (allowing 79 yards per game on the ground).

Clearly, in terms of just the running game, this is all going to get a bit ugly.

In order to create some form of morbid intrigue about this whole affair, I'm going to propose a pool.

The question is... how many yards will the Jets outgain Denver by on the ground?

Winner gets a dinner date with Peyton Hillis.

Thread title fail!!

Was supposed to read 'Jets Game: Depressing Pool'.

I don't know how to fix it.

Anyway, my own guess.

133

(Denver 36 yards rushing, Jets 169)

I would gladly take the 79 yards from the Jets that they are giving up on average!!!

I would be an improvement for us!

Thanks fontaine.

If we gain 79 yards rushing I'll cry tears of joy, genuinely think anything over 50 would be a huge step forward for us, given the quality of the opposition and how pathetic we've looked thus far.

we get the ball first, and the very first play is an 80 yard run for a touch down.

after that we move only backwards, and end the day with 44 yards rushing

I'm expecting about the same as I've seen all season. No reason to really think otherwise.

Actually i think they get just over 100 yards of rushing because Josh stops helping with his infant child at home and devotes all of his time to game planning and coaching. This is one of the pivotal games because they can not afford to fall behind other teams in the division.

I think it should have been "Jets Game: Absolute Depress Pool."

I'll say 1 kabillion.

Jets will gain 289 yards on the ground, 134 from Greene, 102 from Tomlinson, rest will be whoever else runs the ball(ie Sanchez scrambles, Brad Smith).

Us? 46 yards.

I'm gonna wait and see what game plan twists and surprises Josh comes up with for the Jets before I pronounce defeat.

If the Jets don't play their best game and we play somewhere near our best we have a shot IMO, especially if Revis is out as it looks like he might be.

But anyone who thinks they're not going to significantly outgain us on the ground isn't optimistic, they're deluded.

Yes but their O-line >>>>> our D-line. Their D-line >>>>>> our O-line. A smelly turd >>>>>> our run game. Orton will keep us in a lot of games, but I have trouble seeing us pull this one out. If we do, I will be the happiest guy in town. In fact if we win more than 6 games this year, I will be consider McDaniels one of the elite coaches in the league.

What 12th man?

We have the 12th man rooting for Josh to Fail....
We have the 12th man rooting for Tebow to start...
We have the 12th man who is watching his P's+Q's so someone wont turn him in for making noise
We have the 12th man who is more interested in smooozing the business client he took to the game
We have the 12th man who isn't there because he sold his tix to the opposition to make a profit

which one are you referring to?

That's fine. It's a good thing your opinions mean nothing about the game this weekend.

You weren't a Broncos fan in the early seventies were you.

We won a lot games we weren't supposed to. We did it by playing as a team & with smash mouth football & home field advantage. This is exactly what Josh McDaniels is build now. We can win this game if the game plan is there.
