Rams collapse as Jets lead 20-7

Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets came into the Edward Jones Dome as underdogs, and Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams came into the Edward Jones Dome after a heartening, if slightly disappointing, tie against the San Francisco 49ers. Narrative update: Through three quarters, though, Mark Sanchez has overcome the Tim Tebow sideshow and Bradford and company are getting booed by the optimistic St. Louis faithful. The Rams trail the Jets, going into the fourth quarter, by a score of 20-7.

The Jets, still on pace to set an all-time record for ESPN coverage to wins ratio, have looked like a perfectly competent football team against the Rams. The Rams, meanwhile, have looked like nothing much at all since a solid first drive. Sam Bradford has been unable to move the ball and everyone's been turning the ball over--turning the ball over enough, even, for the Jets to take advantage of it.

With 10 minutes left to go the Rams are down two scores on the Jets. And however good Sam Bradford's been in fourth quarters this year, it's hard to imagine this team scoring ever again, let alone today.

Rams, Jets meet for Tebow tete-a-tete #10,000

For the St. Louis Rams and their fans, Sunday at noon CST marks that most rare and ambivalent of homecomings on the NFL schedule: A tie on the road against the best team in your division. It's great to have tied the San Francisco 49ers, but it would have been much greater for them to have not blown all of the chances they had to beat the 49ers. Now the Rams get the reeling New York Jets, and a chance to make things almost-right by blowing America's favorite bad team out of the Edward Jones Dome.

For everybody else in America, Sunday at noon CST marks another chance to talk about Tim Tebow constantly, even though he has yet to succesfully beat out Mark Sanchez on the roster of a team that's not going to come near the postseason. Don't get me wrong: I don't mind Tim Tebow. I think it's great that he has strong beliefs that seem to have made him a good person, and I think it's dumb that we've turned a guy trying very hard (and often awkwardly) to be a good person into a punchline in a league filled with not-very-good people. And he was a great college football player, and an oddly successful quarterback last year, in spite of himself.

But that resume does not deserve the coverage and the attention it's gotten, and that constant attention is good for nobody, least of all Tebow.

It's not as though he's sucking the air out of some other national story about the Rams, though, so I suppose I can't really complain.
