skrame: I love when people rip on Weeden's age, ignoring the fact that he was born in the same year as Rodgers, and is younger than both Mannings (by 7 & 2 years), Brees (4 years), Brady (6 years), etc.

A rookie is younger than guys who have been in the league a decade, won Super Bowls, and are pretty much all shoo-in HoF candidates (assuming they don't die this year)? WOW!

js34603: KC isn't good but better than Jacksonville. Jacksonville, especially with their offense injured and out for "significant time", is the worst

This. Even with MJD the Jags were dead last in just about every offensive category this year, and bottom five in most defensive ones.

-Points scored: 32nd (15 behind 31st)
-Yards/game (offense): 32nd (nearly 60 yards behind 31st)
-First downs/game: 32nd (almost 3 fewer than 31st)
-Third down conversion %: 32nd
-Passing yards/game: 32nd
-Defense (yards/game): 28th
-Defense (points/game) 26th
-Pass defense: 24th (no doubt aided by the fact that other teams just run the ball knowing the Jags can't score)
-Rushing defense: 29th

They ranked just 25th in rushing yards/game with Jones-Drew; his backup (and the only other RB with more than 1 carry on the team) is now averaging 2.6 yards on 34 carries. The Chiefs have had terrible quarterback play so far, but have the #3-ranked rushing offense in the league & are actually 15th in overall defense (yards/game); they've just been killed by turnovers. Cleveland still has some significant holes on defense & at receiver, but Weeden has been much better than most expected & they stay close in their games (worst loss was only by 14 points, to the Giants, in New Jersey; 4 of their 6 losses have been by 7 points or fewer).
