.......People get hurt
trying to guard Julius Peppers:
The Jets' "injury parade continued sunday when Jason Fabini, the starting right tackle, was lost for the season on the first series when he sustained a pectoral injury while trying futilely to keep defensive end Julius Peppers out of the backfield."
It wasn't any better for Fabini's replacement. How about the play in the fourth quarter, right before Will Witherspoon's interception, when Peppers lined up wide and just blew past the tackle and the tight end to sack Jets quarterback Brooks Bollinger?
