Paul Kuharsky’s lede applies to Jets also Dan Leberfeld

Veteran football writer Paul Kuharsky covers the AFC South for ESPN.com.

Here wrote the following lede to a recent blog, “Look at the Tennessee Titans from any angle and the focus winds up on the same spot: starting quarterback Jake Locker.”

That lede applies to the Jets, and every other NFL team.

This league is all about the quarterback.

It’s a quarterback-driven league.

The teams that have an answer at the position, are consistently in the playoff conversation; the teams that don’t, are always a question marks entering any given season.

So to paraphrase Kuharsky, “Look at the New York Jets from any angle and the focus winds up on the same spot: starting quarterback Mark Sanchez or Geno Smith.”
