FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The numbers and their recent level of performance indicate the New York Jets are done for 2012.
Their comments say otherwise.
Somehow, in the wake of two awful outings in losses to Miami and Seattle, the Jets talk about remaining confident, about turning things around, about eliminating the mistakes that are killing their chances.
Indeed, after coach Rex Ryan again emphasized that Mark Sanchez is the starting quarterback despite his sinking play, Sanchez mentioned Monday how "once things go right, they turn around so fast it will make your head spin.''
Others might call that spin. The Jets (3-6) describe it as staying optimistic.
