They STILL can't stop Leon...

(ESPN) - The Seattle Seahawks have been around since 1976.

Leon Washington has been a member of the Seahawks for three weeks.

But on Sunday, he became the franchise's all-time leader in kickoffs returned for touchdowns when he returned two against the
San Diego Chargers in the Seahawks' 27-20 win. Washington returned the first one 101 yards, and his second one went for 99 yards.

Besides the freak Seahawks fan who starts off this video and probably got caught and kicked out of Qwest Field for five knuckle shuffling to it in the bathroom, the last thing I wanted to see was Leon the holdout run back two kick off returns for touchdowns. But come on, dude with the grey hair, are you ****ing kidding me? I can't believe that this was the only video I could find on YouTube to embed on here. I SMELL BLOOD! Weirdo.

Honestly, I hated the Leon trade when it happened and it scares the sh*t out of me if we're trying to replace him with Joe McKnight. McKnight couldn't even pass a physical and I don't think he's seen a touch yet. I know Leon went through a hell of an injury to recover from, but look at him now. Fibula what? Get that $$$ Leon, you deserve it.

Really, Yahoo!, another corny/racy/who cares headline? On the front page? Guess you can't find anything interesting to write about.

And does this headline even surprise you? Like he's never tried this one least he's wearing that bling bling.

Jets-Fins quick postgame thoughts...

(Associated Press) - MIAMI — Braylon Edwards spent the first quarter on the sideline. Soon enough, he was dancing in the end zone for the New York Jets.

Benched at the start because of a drunken-driving arrest, Edwards turned a short pass into a 67-yard touchdown, and the Jets beat the Miami Dolphins 31-23 on Sunday night.

Mark Sanchez threw three touchdown passes for the second week in a row, and the Jets forged a three-way tie atop the AFC East with the Dolphins and Patriots. All are 2-1.

Bag one for Sanchez and his offensive compadres but I'm not going to lie, our defense scared me a little bit tonight. I don't know why Kyle Wilson won't turn his head around and find the ball, ever. And I also don't know why Antonio Cromartie falls down on every ball thrown to him. Needless to say, we're not the same team without Revis.

Despite allowing Chad Henne pull a Dave Chappelle all over the Jets' defense, the Jets still found a way to win. With Mark Sanchez throwing for over 200 yards and three touchdown passes in each of the last two games against divisional opponents, the Sanchize has undoubtedly silenced some of his critics...for now. It's still early.

Tell me this is a joke...

"Let's ****ing ball all year long." -Mark Sanchez, following the Jets' 28-14 upset over their division rivals, the New England Patriots.

So much for that, Braylon.

Shortly after I hyped you up yesterday, I wake up to a text from a fellow Jet fan telling me you get nabbed for DWI this morning. Looks like you took Sanchez's meaning of "ball" the wrong way.

Update: If that wasn't enough, it was later discovered that pro bowl left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson and 2006 draft-bust Vernon Gholston were passengers when Edwards was pulled over and arrested early Tuesday morning. Edwards will dress on Sunday against Miami, but will not start.

Just what the Jets need...more attention.

'Hey Braylon, teach me how to dougie!"

After the Jets' first quarter performance on Sunday, I couldn't help but to think of the MNF game just a few days before: penalties, third down defense, and a terrible offensive performance all around. I seriously debated turning the TV off and going to sleep after watching Tom Brady-locks march down the field to lead the Pats to a 7-0 lead.

But I'm a Jet fan, I knew the game would be exciting regardless if Tom Brady threw for 400+ yards and a handful of touchdowns, so I stuck around.

Even after Darrelle Revis got burnt on a Tom Brady-Randy Moss hookup, I still stuck around.

I guess you can say that I had a good feeling about this one.

Who would've thought that Mark Sanchez would chuck three TD's against a division rival after being criticized all week for his poor decision making and check-down mentality? No one. Who would've thought that the Jets defense would shut down Tom Brady in the second half without Darrelle Revis, who left the game with a hamstring problem? No one. And who would've thought that Braylon Edwards would teach Darius Butler 'how to dougie?' No one.

Get my point?

The Jets came out firing on all cylinders, looking like a different team from week 1. No more turnovers, conservative play calls or confusing formation shifts; it was time to let the boys loose.

Rex Ryan's 'next man up' accountability paid off. Jason Taylor recorded his first sack as a Jet in the fourth quarter with a Tom Brady strip-sack that Bryan Thomas scooped up. Rob Turner replaced Nick Mangold on a 70-yard Jets scoring drive when Mangold's shoulder gave out. Free agent signing Brodney Pool came in and had a huge pic down the sideline while Cromartie stuck to Moss like white on rice after Revis left with an injury to the lower leg. Speaking of Cromartie, this was his second straight game with a pic, not to mention he held Randy Moss without a reception in the second half. I thought he was overrated?

I hadn't even mentioned what we lead the league in last year: our running game. LT was an absolute BEAST out there, and that's always good to see from a Gang Green standpoint. And at the end of the game, what do the Jets do? Pound the football with Greene, wear out the D a little.

Week 2 in the books, bring on the 'fins.
