Stories about dissension in the ranks when a team is enduring a terrible season are nothing new. But when it comes to the Jets, they are usually too juicy to sweep under the rug.
For all the bad that happened as the Jets fell to 1-8 Sunday in Kansas City, the worst came inside the final two minutes. They packed it in.
The Jets aren’t quite sure how much of the playbook Harvin will have down by kickoff against Buffalo. And, even if they did, they’ll just keep everyone guessing — especially the Bills.

For a moment, it seemed as if the Jets had tied the Packers. Touchdown — Jeremy Kerley with about 5 minutes left to the game. One problem…
The wish list for the Jets’ offense was simple, yet ambitious. Playmakers — real difference makers — were needed, and general manager John Idzik went shopping during the offseason.
Anyone else tired of hearing about cornerbacks? The Jets need to start doing their defense a favor by moving the ball and putting up points like a 21st century NFL team.
