Best Soap Opera:

The Jets

Watching the Jets take the field this year was like watching oxygen-deprived coal miners emerging from six months trapped underground. But the on-field-play was nothing compared to the off-field lunacy. Watching a chastened, slimmed-down, prediction-abstaining Rex Ryan forced from above to find snaps for the Tim Tebow circus while Mark Sanchez's fragile psyche shivered under a blanket of yay-team cliches was crazy theater that ultimately exploded in the comic orgasm of the Thanksgiving-night Sanchez ass fumble, a play destined to become the top NFL blooper of all time.
