Divergent paths for Greene, Sanchez
The Jets' RB could be the real deal; their QB could become JaMarcus V2
Each week of this NFL season, Vince Verhei of Football Outsiders analyzed the biggest upset of the weekend and what it meant for each squad going forward. This week -- in the final edition for 2009-10 -- he looks at the New York Jets defeating the San Diego Chargers -- and what we should be thinking about Jets building blocks Mark Sanchez and Shonn Greene.
The New York Jets' stalwart defense has carried rookies at both quarterback and running back to within one game of the Super Bowl; the Jets had better make this playoff run count, however, because while Shonn Greene looks like he'll be a good player for years, there are signs of a bleak future ahead for Mark Sanchez.
C'mon, Verhei. The quarterback comes off two straight playoff wins, helps put the Jets in their first AFC title game since 1998, and you gotta come out and say that? Time to defend yourself! If you want to see the defense -- it's pretty jarring if you're a Jets fan -- you must be an ESPN Insider.
