Respect in life is earned, not given away. Sports is no different. Last Saturday, my team, the NY Jets got their respect the old-fashioned way - They Earned it. After hearing for two weeks how they only got into the playoffs b/c the Colts-Bengals rested their starters, the Jets went out on the road and won. Good stuff as this team is all about progression. This win legitimized stud players like Darrell Revisand showed how important it is for roles players to step up like placekicker Jay Feeley who had to take on punting duties at the last minute.
