Edwards has played that card too many times. The Jets have to win games on attitude and performance, like they did Sunday against San Diego. They looked strong. Then they came out in the third quarter, played well and finished the second half. Chad Pennington looks solid, getting everyone involved in the game plan. That is important to the Jets' success. Curtis Martin looks like he is back and is ready to carry the load. Defensively, they played better than they have all season.
Question on the Chargers: Did the Chargers forget the bye was last weekend, not today?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
