The underrated -- New York Jets

This is really going to surprise some people. I maintain that Jets fans have been spoiled in recent memory by having the league's best offensive line. Now any drop feels like a plunge into mediocrity, but that's just not been the case.
Nick Mangold isn't having his most consistent year, but is still playing some fine football. Both guards are playing above average, even if Matt Slauson is struggling in the run game. And D'Brickashaw Ferguson? Well, he hasn't given up a sack and has been near shutdown on the blind side.
No, this unit is being made a scapegoat. They've gotten better and better since moving on from Wayne Hunter, with Austin Howard making up for some pass-protection problems with some good work in the run game. The real problem is that when they do allow pressure, their quarterback (Mark Sanchez) is so bad at dealing with it that it makes the pressure stand out that much more. As it is they've allowed only 97 combined sacks, hits and hurries -- seventh fewest in the league.

Kudos to Coach Sparano and his staff for doing a GREAT job this year in the trenches!

Unfortunate that it was wasted in front of nothing but backup players.

Translation: Running backs and receivers suck!

i've been saying this all damn year. altho Brick did give up his sack to Babin this week. still a top 10 unit easy, if not higher. especially look at the teams that are injured up front. Good OL like TEN, BAL, NO and TB have been riddled with injury.

This just proves the fact that we have 2 JAG RB's and that Sanchez is miserable because he's had time to throw all season.
