A lot of friends tell me I am crazy to give the Jets a fighting chance to upset the Indianapolis Colts in this weekend's AFC Championship Game. They say, "Jeremy, the New York Jets are a poor man's version of the Baltimore Ravens." Sure, the defensive schemes are similar, both teams rely heavily on the run, their quarterbacks are average and they lack playmakers at receiver. But make no mistake about it, the Jets are more prepared to play with the Colts than the Ravens were.
