Jets' season: Over?

If Sanchez keeps throwing 5 INTs a game then yes.

A better question is over or very over?

I still think the Panthers would take him back right now.

Adam Schefter reports Kris Jenkins traded for Julius Peppers.

Sounds like a Ron Meeks decision....

I was just telling a friend the other day that I was surprised by the lack of season-ending injuries to big names this season.

Um, sorry about the jinx Jets fans.

Curse you Milkman Danimal!

Wahoo! I'm gonna have a great game against the Jets now!

The first 3 weeks were the most fun I've had as a Jets fan since 1998. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Now it's time for the Sione Pouha show, and everyone's invited!

Isn't Dewayne Robertson a free agent?

Patriots fans just got a little more excited about the season. Now if only Ryan would get a fit of temporary insanity and trade away Revis...

Still, I feel for the guy. It's tough to lose a season.

I know he had issues in Carolina, although I don't know the details, but Jenkins was one of the most likeable, interesting, intelligent and professional members of the Jets over the last couple years. I loved watching him being interviewed almost as much as watching him blow up plays in the backfield. Almost. I do feel bad for him personally. He seemed to have re-dedicated himself to being a team leader and championship player.

How are the Raiders closer to the AFC West lead when the Broncos are still undefeated? Please have a drink of the old booze first if that will help you to formulate an answer.

So typical of New York fans. Jets were going to the Super Bowl in Week 3, now their season is over in Week 6. What does FO call the week after Week 1? National Jump to Conclusions Week? In some respects all sports fans and NFL fans do this, but every day is a National Jump to Conclusions holiday in NYC and its environs.

The Jets were going to the Superbowl in week 3?

I waited 40 years for this & now you tell me I missed it...? Dang!

I for one, find the old "Jets fans self-mutilate on Draft Day"-misery far more entertaining than the impersonal "Jets fans cry in front of their keyboards"-misery of the 21st century.

Give me the Jeff Lageman pick any day over this crybaby crap.
