Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld endorsing?

Almost fell off my chair when I read this one.  Weld was one of the best Mass Governors ever and a true conservative.  It does not make me support Obama but still a huge endorsement for him.  Could be the fork in McCain.

Farve who?

So it was all about Farve.  Now the Jets have him.  How they were finally going to beat the Pats.  This was their year.  What we have seen thus far is hardly the case.  Instead, it has been more of the Farve that tossed up the lemon ball in the NFC championship game last year in overtime.  A future Hall of Famer no doubt, but at 38 (soon to be 39), coming into a new team, learning a new offense, and trying to knock off the most successful team of the past decade, his job might be more than he is capable of.  He barely squeaked out a win against the putrid Dolphins, and scored a meager 10 points against the Pats.  I originally thought the Jets could pull off 10-6, now I am thinking more like 8-8.  Buffalo is looking like the team for the Pats to look out for.

Sox, Rays, Yanks and the A.L. East

So here it is.  September is creeping up and the Rays are holding strong.  I am still having a tough time with the reality of them maybe winning the division.  Since their inception, they have bean putrid, but here we are, 4 1/2 up and with the 2nd best winning percentage in the majors (only a single game in the loss column for the best).  I just can't seem to get used to checking how they did each day.  Or is the bigger story the Yankees on the verge of falling into fourth?  At the close of last season, this seemed unlikely, but again here we are.

So what do people think?  Do the Rays hold on?  Will the Sox catch them and the Yanks pull one of their amazing rebound Septembers and snatch the wild card.  It would be sad for Tampa fans if after leading the whole way, they tanked in September (will they make a last minute big signing?).  But September is when things happen.  Just look at the Mets and Rockies last season.  I don't know what to think, I just know it will feel weird if there is no potential for a Sox-Yanks meeting in the playoffs.  But maybe it's time for a Rays-Cubs...........

Farve to the Jets. What doe it mean for the East?

So what does this mean for the NFC East?  Is Farve the piece Mangini needs to return the Jets to the playoffs?  Maybe.  Farve is definitly on the decline, but he is still an above average QB, and don't underestimate his field presence.  This will at least for a season get them away from the failure that is Chad Pennington
The big question to be answered though is can Farve make the necessary adjustments at this stage of his career he needs to?  He can no longer live by the long ball, nor force a pass into tight coverege the way he used to.  A more conservative approach is needed to manage field position and clock, the recievers have the talent to make big plays.  In short, don't force it Farve.  Prediction is 10-6 as a wild card.  The Jets have a very farorable schedule, but this move alone will not surpass New England for the division.  But then again, anything can happen in the playoffs.
