The First Blemish

When you start a rookie quarterback, you have to live with the possibility he will make mistakes that lose games. That happened today. How can anybody get upset with Mark Sanchez? Again, he is a rookie and exceeded anybody's wildest expectations in the first three weeks. With that said, the blame for this loss lies with him.

19-0 was never a realistic possibility. This was eventually going to happen. This was an out of conference road game against a terrific football team. Plus the defense just about shut down the league's most explosive offense.

The schedule really starts to open up from here. We've reached the soft underbelly. The Jets should put this one behind them quickly. This team has a shot to put itself in great position for the stretch run in both the division race and the battle for homefield advantage.
