It's Friday; I know you don't want to be at work. Enjoy these NFL links.
Earlier this season, the Jets had three straight road games including one in Oakland followed by games in Baltimore and New England. This week, they played the Patriots on Sunday night then were across the country to play the Broncos at altitude with, essentially, one full day to prepare. So when Jim Leonhard bitches about the schedule, I tend to agree.
As I've mentioned before, football statistics are -- in many cases -- useless as an ashtray on a motorcycle. Here, statistically speaking, is why Mark Sanchez is just fine, everyone. Just fine. The Jets are 10th in the AFCwhen it comes to playoff scenarios. Tenth. Lance Briggs is making sense. Others teams have sucked too after losing their quarterbacks, but nobody's quite sucked like the 2011 Indianapolis Colts. Not denying the fact the Colts are bad, but I wonder if they're even a six-win team with Manning. Pass-rushers. Who needs 'em? The Chiefs don't know who the hell they think they are.
