Late night open thread

Time for Jersey City, After Dark

Bridgegate hits Ward E; Christie's minions approached Candice Osborne for support

We'll end any and all speculation -- she told them NO.

The best political reporter anywhere, Terrence T. McDonald points out Osborne's name came up when Christie operative Matt Mowers asked to meet with Osborne around the same time Christie was trying to get Mayor Fulop's support (Which Fulop did not give) to see who in a big city like Jersey City they could get support from:

Mowers said he and Christie campaign staffer Pete Sheridan sat down with the Downtown councilwoman in August 2013 on the recommendation of Fulop and the mayor's political advisers.

"They believed she was going to endorse Gov. Christie's re-election campaign," Mowers testified. "And they thought Mayor Fulop wanted to be helpful towards the governor's campaign, or seem helpful while also not endorsing himself."

Johnny wonders why the hell they'd think that, as Osborne herself pointed out to them but you'll have to click this handy link to see her response to Mowers and Sheridan. Couple questions do arise, why Fulop would send them to Osborne if he wasn't planning on endorsing or supporting Christie, the Candice Osborne Johnny knows would have no interest in helping Chris Christie. Also, did Osborne know her name had the possibility of popping up in Bridgegate at any point? Inquiring minds and all. If so that info is best gotten out ahead of moments like this.

The real story here though, and as usual in this story, is just how bad Christie's people were at reading people.

All aboard the Trump Train, no refunds.

Quite the train wreck for Trump tonight

Nobody thought he looked good, just a while back in the spin room Trump acolyte Rudy Giuliani said Trump might not do any more debates. That's a red-assed beat down kids.

Jets and Giants football Gameday!

What a day it is out there football fans, the first true fall-feeling afternoon on tap for two big games for the New Jersey-based NFL ballclubs.

First the Giants are at the New Meadlowlands at 1pm to take on arch-rival and division foe, Washington with their 0-2 record. Thus far, well, they're a mess. Last year's breakout QB Kirk Cousins isn't having a "You like that!" kind of season.

First off the Skins cannot run the ball. They average an abysmal 68 yards a game so far. Big Blue should be able to use this to an extreme advantage and get after the pocket-passing Cousins. The Redskins CAN pass, Cousins is capable of throwing for 300 yards but the New Jersey defense has to make those "trying to play catchup" yards.

Now let's get back to where the real fun might pop up, Odell Beckham Jr. and Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and their ongoing grudge. Let's look back at last year when Gordon was with Carolina shall we? (Tom Coughlin sighting)

So, with all the extra-curriculars that might go on with age-old rivals today could be a knock-down drag out fight where the Redskins pull the GMen into the deep water of the 4th quarter but Johnny doesn't get that feel today.

Fearless Forecast
New Jersey Giants 31
Washington Redskin Potatoes 21

Now, off to the J-E-T-S- Jets Jets Jets game out in Kansas City at 4:30pm, Wilbert Harrison won't you set the mood:



Ah, Kansas City, you never know what the hell to expect from the Chiefs at home do you? Could be an all-time performance with great screaming fans or they could easily lay an egg. Johnny thinks betting on games in Chiefs-land are a fools errand. Let's go to the tape:

Pretty simple today Jets fans, run the ball. The Chiefs have a fairly well balanced offensive attack with passing being better but on defense they allow a lot of yards on the ground, a Jets forte'. This should help cover for the hideous Jets pass defense if they can keep the Chiefy Wiefies offense off the field. If this game were being played in New Jersey Johnny would have no trouble going with the Jets. This one is tricker and road games in the NFL are notoriously difficult. Coin toss time.

Fearless Forecast
New Jersey Jets 23
Kansas City Chiefs 20 OT
