Q: Jets-Saints this Sunday. Are we looking at a potential Super Bowl matchup? I didn't think Mark Sanchez had what it takes to make a playoff run, but with that defense, anything is possible.

-- Clark (Bethpage, N.Y.)

A: Clark: How far did the Ravens go last season with a rookie quarterback and Rex Ryan as their defensive coordinator? All the way to the AFC Championship Game. So I'm not putting any limits on these Jets. To me, they have a chance to have a great season. Young quarterbacks have proved they don't have to wait years to have success in the postseason. Look at Ben Roethlisberger -- he was drafted in 2004 and already has won two Super Bowls. If the Jets keep playing the way they have, they could find themselves in a Super Bowl rematch with the Saints. Not likely, but certainly possible.

Q: Chris Henry was one of the darlings of the preseason, and many thought his role would expand to the point where he might eclipse Laveranues Coles in the offense as the starter. We all know he has the talent, but was everyone just drinking the Kool-Aid on him?

-- Bradley (Cincinnati)
