New York Jets
After a trade with the Chicago Bears, the New York Jets inked workhorse running back Thomas Jones to a $12 million deal this past offseason, fortifying an impotent running game at the Meadowlands that had Jimmy Hoffa rolling in his grave last season.

YES! You make a great point about NY's passing game having a positive affect of Jones. Pennington, with all his faults, is much better than Grossman and I'm continually impressed with the Jets' receiving corps. Even McCareins, who is a typical underachieving wide-out, has been making strides toward improving this offseason. I'm so excited to see what these guys can do in '07. J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!

YEAH GENIUS, Good luck with that. First. Grossman took bears to SB check the stats.. way the hell better than penningpenis, second Jones goes down easy. He doesnt wear down d's. third, have fun shouting at jones who gets more 0 yard gains when he runs into a pile and falls down.

Jones "goes down easy", huh? I think you're confusing him with your girlfriend, bro. Three 1,000 yard seasons in a row with an anemic passing attach is GOOD. I admit the O-line had a lot to do with it, but the Jet's got it going on in that category.
Also, of all the arguements you could potentially use, Grossman being good b/c he "got bears to SB" is just aweful. He had a MAJOR breakdown in the SB, the playoffs and most of the season. He's aweful. Pennington will smoke him even with his bad shoulder.
Oh and genius, wait and see how Cedric "the holdout/major dissapointment" Benson fairs this year. As you so eloquently put it "Good luck with that".
