ESPN: Don't Write Off the Jets Just Yet

DVOA doesn't back up their 2-3 record, and the Jets are still a very good team despite their poor start.

People are writing off the Jets? Who is this straw man?

With that QB, I write off the Jets. Also, BUF, HOU and OAK are all better. Have a nice vaca, SOJ.

Thank you for this article- People forget that the Jets just played what has to be the most difficult 3-game stretch any team will have this year. At Oakland (hoke opener), At Baltimore, At New England. Right now, NE and BAL are clearly better (Raiders are good, but I'd like to see the outcome if Oaklnad had to come to NJ instead of vice-versa).

As for Buffalo, they have lost every game they played in which the opponent did not turn the ball over 3+ times. The formula is pretty easy.

Most of the ESPY article get sensational headlines, which I believe are at the discretion of ESPY.
