NFL power rankings are out after Week 2. Once again, the Jets are last in the league for most of them. SB Nation is the only venue that doesn’t rate the Jets worst in the league. They are down one spot from 29 to 30 after the blowout loss in Oakland. San Francisco and Cincinnati rate lower.

There are still plenty of 32nd rankings.

Nothing doing for the Jets in Oakland this past Sunday. Feel for Josh McCown, a pro's pro who might not be a viable starting quarterback in the NFL on a long-term basis, but who isn't playing with much out there on the field. That said, new acquisition Jermaine Kearse caught two touchdown passes. It was also nice to see Matt Forte get more involved in the offense. Alright, the game still sucked. Work with me here, please.

32. New York Jets

For an offense that some thought could be among the worst all time, the Jets are scoring some points. They've averaged 16.0 points per game so far, which is the same as the 2-0 Panthers and better than teams such as the Seahawks, Texans and Bengals. And hey, the Jets are currently the highest scoring team in New York, topping both the Bills and Giants.

Anyone remember the basketball player Tony Campbell? He was a good, solid player who ended up as the best player on the expansion Minnesota Timberwolves in 1989-90. And his first two seasons he averaged 23.0 and 21.8 points per game. His career best in any other year was 11.0. He scored a lot because it was a professional team and someone had to score. He did it by default. That might be Jermaine Kearse this season for the Jets. Kearse, who was traded to the Jets from the Seahawks right before the season, had two touchdowns on Sunday. He’s going to end up putting up decent numbers basically because someone has to.

Why does one get the feeling there will be plenty of dancing opportunities on the opposite sideline at Jets games this season?
