Jets suffer from the same problem Dan Leberfeld

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the New England Patriots, 36-17, in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler had an interesting blog about the game with the headline – “The Patriots problem: Brady-Belichick loom large over Steelers’ progress.”

The Jets have the same problem, and have for many years.

It’s probably more of a “Brady-problem” than a “Belichick-problem.”

While Belichick is a great coach, the NFL is a QB-driven league, so it’s Brady’s greatness that is the #1 reason for the Patriots’ dominance.

So until Brady retires, or his game slips, the Jets, Steelers and the entire AFC is going to have a “Patriots problem.”
