Random Thoughts from the Passionate Sports Fan's Mind III

Jets pull off another miracle win, this time vs. the Texans.
If this isn't a sign that this may be the Jets' year, I don't know what does.

Brad Childress finally fired as Vikings coach.
If the players really hated him as much as we think, then don't be surprised if the Vikings run the table.

The current Super Bowl favorites are the Patriots and...
Not the Giants. Not the Eagles. Not the Falcons. Not the Saints. How about...
The Green Bay Packers? Yes. Even with all their injuries, look who they have beaten. Don't be surprised if they are in Dallas come February.

Victor Martinez signs a 4 year, $50M deal with the Tigers.
The Red Sox have now lost their two top catching options for 2011, along with John Buck signing with the Marlins. How does a platoon of the headcase Jarrod Saltalamacchia and the ancient Jason Varitek sound, Boston?

Jeter's agent calls Yankee tactics "baffling".
If you think these negotiations will get messy, just wait until Jorge Posada's negotiations next year.

Now that Phillips and Childress have been fired, guess who the next coach to go may be?
How about Jeff Fisher? If Titans owner Bud Adams sides with Vince Young after Sunday's disgraceful show of emotion, Fisher will be shown the door. And it will be a fatal mistake.

Mets hire Terry Collins as manager.
But the most important move Sandy Alderson SHOULD make is to trade Jose Reyes. That's right, I said it!

Josh Hamilton and Joey Votto named League MVP's.
Don't you think this means more to both than any Comeback Player of the Year award can?

And my non-sports thought of the week:
A round trip train ticket from Hamilton to New York is now $30. Thirty. Two years ago it was 20. Imagine what it will be in 2015. Nice going, New Jersey Greedsit.

Everyone have a save and happy Thanksgiving!
