    Re: The Jets



    The funniest part is the contract extension the Jets gave Sanchez.

    Amazing.

    Re: The Jets

    I have always felt that Flacco and Sanchez were pretty similar. Look good one game, horrible the next. But after watching that display of horriblness I will never make that comparison again. The Jets had so many chances, so many. And Sanchez couldn't perform a simple snap exchange or screen pass. When he did get a little rythm going they brought in Tebow for a series and he was beyond horrible. I feel bad for Rex.

    $8M or not, they have to part ways with both of those QBs and move on.

    Thanks for the laugh, that is funny. Seriously though, this trade to bring Tebow in as co-starter will go down in NFL history infamy. It was a purely publicity move that backfired hugely. Very unfair to both Sanchez and Tebow. It gives every NFL fan a reason to dislike the Jets, if they didn't already.

    Sanchez rules, especially when you're getting +2258 on a prop bet that the next play will be an INT!!!

    Re: The Jets

    Joe Flacco should send Mark Sanchez a really nice gift basket for Christmas. Mark always comes through for Joe. Seems like every time Flacco has one of his stinker games, Sanchez manages to out-stink him and draw the media's attention.

    I had the same thought last night, one of those times where I'm glad were a small market team.

    I scheduled a chimney inspection recently & the company sent a couple of brothers originally from Long Island. I casually asked them if they were Giants fans & they said No, Jets, & before I could stop myself I blurted out, You poor bastards...

    The real problem with the Tebow trade is that it laid bare the dirty not-quite-secret of the NFL: It's become nothing much more than a made-for-TV reality show. "Survivor" with more rules & a longer history. Ca$h is king--generated by TV contracts--priced by ratings--generated by controversy, notoriety, herd following, & (very occasionally) the quality of play. The Jests noted that almost the instant the Ponies drafted Tebow his jersey (not even worn yet) shot to the top of the sales lists, & decided he represented a major opportunity to target the huge national fundamentalist-Christian demographic. (And who knows, the kid might actually be able to play some?)

    Let's not forget, though, that the situation started to slide toward farce when Sanchez was drafted with the #5 pick overall--waaaay above the skill set he showed at USC. That too was a ratings-driven target-demographic move--the target in this case being Hispanics, who prefer to follow futbol that's actually played with the feet.

    But I agree that both young men are probably damaged goods (at least as football players) from here on out.

    Re: The Jets

    Lob, that's a good post, and there's a lot of truth to it. But more than anything winning bringsin revenue.

    I don't think the Jets drafted Sanchez for the Hispanic fan, he was drafted too high, but he showed flashes of being a good QB at USC ( I think it had more to do with the players around him).

    I can't see the Jets wasting a to 5 pick and being the butt of of 90% of the jokes about bad teams just to pick up a few fans.

    Absolutely agree!
    He got the best out of everyone on that side of the ball.
    He is extremely smart and I believe born to be a DC.
    I would take him over any other DC anywhere.

    And yes, it probably would be impossible to get him back here.
    But if he was here, the defense would rise back up.

    Winning consistently, over a number of seasons, in an entertaining fashion, in a major media market. For dogsake, man, consider the Ravens--5 straight years in the playoffs, tons of respect from their peers & the media, but renowned for bone-jarring defense & a punishing running game. And as a result their national following is nil. Pittsburgh overcomes this via the 1970s championships (older generation of bandwagoners) plus the two recent Lombardis (younger generation of bandwagoners) plus the Mullethead Diaspora which scattered the Primanti-addled across the country...

    You're right, I exaggerated a bit for effect. It was still a heckuva stretch on the Jets' part. I think they honestly felt they could turn him into a very good if not great NFL QB, & they started the right (i.e., the Ravens) way: stellar defense & good running game, let him manage the game & not need to do too much. But IMHO he would have gone in the bottom of the first/top of the 2nd at the earliest without the Hispanic surname. Just look at all the marketing the NFL is doing to tap the Spanish-speaking audience. For years they tried Tony Gonzalez as their poster boy, but TEs (even great ones) have no celebrity status for a non-fan or casual fan. They need a Peytono Manninguez if they're ever gonna crack that market. Sanchez looked like he might be the real deal, NY franchises always get national attention (like everything else Newyorkish), & there's a huge Hispanic presence there. It was something of una lanza Ave Maria, but hey...

    Actually the Ravens have increased their fan base a lot over the past few years. I am not sure where to find it, but it's been posted before showing the rise in popularity and fans.

    Re: The Jets

    Jets have named McIlroy the starter over Tebow. I hee the man continues to be jerked around by Rex. All he did was win at Florida and in Denver.
