Deep Drive: The New York Jets' 1-5 Mess

Thanks to Chase Stuart on Twitter for pointing out this well-written analysis of the state of the New York Jets. There's a persuasive argument here that it's time to move on from Rex Ryan. Personally, I think Ryan did a very good job in New York his first few years but I agree that it is time for a new direction there. And as writer Joe Caporoso points out, when you look just at players brought in during the last two seasons, blaming John Idzik for the problems doesn't really seem realistic.

Titans Lose Roos For Season

The Tennessee Titans announced on Thursday that offensive tackle Michael Roos would be undergoing knee surgery, and they announced Saturday night that the surgery would end Roos' season.

Roos, 32, was a first-team All-Pro in 2008 and a second-teamer in 2009. He will be a free agent after the season. Taylor Lewan, the 11th overall pick in this year's draft out of Michigan, will likely make the first start of his career on Sunday against Jacksonville. Lewan has played in every game this season, with 33 snaps on offense and 18 on special teams.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the following: "Court records show while giving his urine sample Wednesday, Adrian Peterson admitted to a staffer he had 'smoked a little weed' before the test.
