    Well, it could really be the exact opposite of this for all you know. Polian and Manning were very tight, and maybe Polian was fired because he didn't want to move on from Manning. That's equally plausible.

    The Jets GM was the first capologist ever employed in the NFL. Mikey T will get it done if Manning is available. The Jets have always been able to make big signings since he's been there.

    You have to believe there's a day coming when the bottom will fall out. I guess we'll see.

    I find it hard to belive he's leaving, so it's difficult to even entertain eventual destinations for him, but the Jets would be attractive for sure.

    More momentum for Manning to Jets - if he's not with Indy, it's gonna happen. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...n-not-sanchez/

    Completely agree. Both sides are going to want this.

    Manish Mehta who is where this story is coming from is the Aaron Wilson of the Jets. He's the top guy and lot more right than wrong.

    “We have to bring in another quarterback that will make him work at practice,” one player told Mehta. “He’s lazy and content because he knows he’s not going to be benched.”

    Those are serious claims.

    Wow, after reading Florio's article and the responses, it's great to have an organization like the ravens in Baltimore. The ravens owner has made all the right moves to give us fans something to be proud of. Preston would love to be able to write about the Jets if he worked in N.Y. Glad Rex was not hired to be the head coach of the ravens, surely the team would have imploded and not had four straight appearances in post season. Peyton wll not play again in a situation where he could get hurt and cripple himself, the man is too smart to let that happen. I see him becoming a QB coach and a successful one at that. Hate to see him retire, he helped define what a great QB in the NFL should be like.But will not miss him when the Ravens consistently beat the Dolts from here on out.

    Competitive guys can put up with a lot of things, but a guy not giving it 100% isn't one of them. Can't believe Bart Scott or someone else there hasn't kicked him square in the ass if he's not working hard at practice. Rant over...

    Part of that resentment from the players comes directly from Rex and how he will NEVER criticize the QB under any circumstance. If Rex will call a spade a spade sometimes, maybe they wouldn't feel that way. Instead he gets up there and just lies right through his teeth, coddles him and never says an even remotely critical word about him.

    But again, Manning isn't going to the Jets. They just fired the OC, he was the fall guy for 2011. Sanchez has one more year to be protected, and I suspect if it doesn't go well both Rex and Sanchez will be out of jobs. Rememebr he was the one who just HAD to have Sanchez and wasted a bunch of picks and big money trading up for him.

    Is Rex really the one who had to have Sanchez or was it the GM? The Jets system is no different that the Ravens. The coach has input but it's the GM who makes the picks and is in charge of personnel. Rex is no different than Harbaugh or Billick in that respect. I do agree though that Rex love to talk and has no problem throwing his support behind someone to the public and then running him out of town in private.

    If I were Peyton, I would go to the 49ers, not the Jets. Can you imaging how good the 49ers would be if they had a real QB?

    That is a good question. I guess we will find out eventually, but with the way Rex is I can see him playing GM on the big decisions.

    No team is giving a rookie head coach that kind of authority. Doesn't happen here or with the Jets. Even big name coaches like Coughlin and Fox couldn't get that. We all know Belechick get it. I've heard Marvin Lewis finally got it with his last contract. Pete Carroll wouldn't coach in the NFL without it. Jeff Fisher has made it a condition for whatever job he takes since he never had it with the Titans. The days when the Head Coach got full control are long gone.

    Rex wanted Sanchez. He said that it came down to Sanchez and Freeman. He said that he brought both of them in for interviews and felt that Sanchez was better at analyzing the scheme/diagnosing plays. He absolutely wanted Mark Sanchez, fought for him and admitted so.
