Backlash vs. Jets has Leonhard bewildered

By Roderick Boone

"I don't really understand," Leonhard said Monday. "It's not like we are trying to put down any other team or get ahead of ourselves. This is what every team in the National Football League plays for — to play for a Super Bowl. So I don't really understand why you can't talk about it. It's not that we are not extremely focused on the next opponent. We realize you have to take care of business now to get to where you want to go.

"But the Super Bowl on most teams is that elephant in the room that no one can talk about. 'Don't mention it. Don't think about it.' Everybody knows it's there. We are not afraid to talk about it."
