News item: The New York Daily News quoted several "key" New York Jets players anonymously questioning the work ethic of quarterback Mark Sanchez and encouraging the team to make a run at Peyton Manning if he becomes available.

Schmuck's take: If the Jets' players really love coach Rex Ryan, they've got a strange way of showing it, since this kind of public locker room dissension does not reflect well on his leadership.JOE SKIPPER, REUTERS
