Morning Dump

By Ernie Padaon

HAPPY HUMP DAY!! Have we moved on from that loss to the Jets yet? I still am a little frustrated, but I think I am finally OK after I grab a Starbucks this morning.

Enjoy your dump:

As the “coolest coach” on the block, Rex Ryan adds another line to his famous book of quotes (“Stay classy, San Diego”), men from both sides of the line criticize the lethargic and lack lustrous performance the San Diego Chargers produced against the New York Jets last Sunday.

The Jets stayed relevant heading into their bye week and the second half of the season by beating a poorly coached Chargers team, whose victories have come against the lowly Vikings, Chiefs, Dolphins and Broncos. But to say that the swagger is back and the Jets are headed to the playoffs is a huge leap of faith for a team that has struggled to find its identity through the first two months of the season.

“We were working the cadence quite a bit because we saw them get jumpy,” Sanchez said during his weekly radio spot on “The Michael Kay Show” on 1050 ESPN New York. “Shaun Phillips, he comes flying off the edge, so anything you can do to reduce their pass rush will help. Whether it’s an offsides penalty or a neutral zone infraction, those are big for us, free yards, and we kept picking them up.”

English, a first-round pick in 2009, can’t stay healthy, with his latest injury being a broken foot. His health problems may jeopardize his career with the Chargers. Davis, the team’s 2007 first-round pick, was released this summer after four seasons of struggles with various injuries.

Chargers linebacker Larry English has a broken left foot and may not play again this season.
