Post-loss vibe mostly subdued from Jets fans this a.m., with WFAN's Joe Benigno setting the pragmatic tone: Gang Green was beaten by the better team and the best quarterback alive, end of story.

In my newspaper column I referenced the fact Ron Jaworski was all over the fact the Jets often take a deep shot on their third series, which they did successfully Sunday.

But Jaworski and his producer at ESPN's "NFL Matchup," Greg Cosell, were dead on when I spoke to them Thursday at NFL Films headquarters regarding several other developments that came true.

That includes the fact Pierre Garcon - who did not play in Week 16 - would have a huge impact, and that the Colts likely would go to three wide receivers plus Dallas Clark to exploit matchup issues in the Jets secondary.

Well done, sirs.
