- Worst NFL contracts: Sanchez is third
NFL owners have navigated through years of labor battles and escaped without having to fully guarantee contracts. Instead, teams offer huge signing bonuses and partial base salary guarantees to compete.
To appease fan bases and promote ticket sales, teams will venture into bad contracts. Many will rush to judgment on the Buffalo Bills signing Mario Williams to a six-year, $96 million contract. Through seven games, Williams has 3.5 sacks and 16 tackles.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — After last season’s debacle, Rex Ryan vowed to take a hands-on approach with regard to the day-to-day operation of the team. So, after seven games, how has that manifested itself? The Jets’ coach said he’s more involved with the offense than in the past.
“I feel really tied in with our offense, understanding our offense,” he said Thursday. “It’s not that I never understood it before, but I’m really more tied in with these guys.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan spoke optimistically Thursday about Sione Po’uha’s chances of returning to the lineup this week. At the same time, he admitted Po’uha’s back injury was “much worse” than the initial reports.
Po’uha developed the back condition early in training camp, claiming it was nothing more than “tightness.” The Jets shut him down for the entire preseason and the season opener. The veteran nose tackle returned for three games, but re-injured it and has missed the past three games.

- View from Miami: Impact of Revis injury
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The last time the Dolphins saw the Jets, in Week 3, there was a certain No. 24 in the secondary. Yep, that was Darrelle Revis’ last game. He suffered his season-ending knee injury late in the game, meaning the Jets have played four games without their best player.
Dolphins rookie Ryan Tannehill, on a conference call with New York reporters, said the Jets have altered their defensive approach without Revis at cornerback.
“They’re playing more zone coverage now, which is the biggest major change, but they still throw exotic blitzes at you,” Tannehill said.

- Mark: Coaches have ‘plenty of trust in me’
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Mark Sanchez insisted Wednesday he didn’t feel slighted that he was replaced by Tim Tebow at quarterback for the first play of the Jets’ final drive in regulation Sunday against the Patriots.
It seemed like an odd time to use the Wildcat — Tebow in shotgun, Sanchez split out as a receiver — and the Jets’ coaches have been getting hammered for not trusting Sanchez with the game on the line, and the ball at the Patriots’ 18.

“This game is a must-win,” S LaRon Landry said. “We can sweep these guys and also get to the bye at 4-4. That’s what we’re striving to do and that’s what we will do.”
Even mild-mannered DE Muhammad Wilkerson got into the action, embracing the 4-4 scenario at the bye.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The official practice report from Wednesday:
Analysis: Calvin Pace hurt his shin Sunday, but he’s expected to play, according to Rex Ryan. Joe McKnight told reporters that he intends to play even though he’s still less than 100 percent. Clyde Gates returned to practice, so it looks like he’ll be available to face his former team. The big question is Sione Po’uha, who has missed three straight games. The early indications are encouraging for Po’uha.
