It’s been one hell of a week, huh?? Some of you may know me – others probably should! I’m typically the only lady at the bar that’s crazier than Millie J. Anyway, I’m going to try to blog fairly regularly on Jets-Fan.com! So keep coming back to read! Sometimes, I’m going to give you a technical analysis. Other times, I’m going to go a little crazy – maybe even rant a bit. But I can assure you this: I will entertain you!
So many people have asked me: Jess, what’s your take? My take: I LOVE THE MOVE! For a couple of reasons, really.
First, this is why!
Here are my thoughts.
1. Though I love him, Mark Sanchez had a tough year in 2011. But let’s not forget that the two years prior – including his ROOKIE year – he took us to the AFC Championship game. Mark Sanchez is the starter for our NY Jets. People have said that the second Mark throws a pick or goes 3 and out, the fans will be calling for Tebow. I have a couple of questions. Do we really think that Jets fans will call for Mark’s benching and then (THEN!) sit through the ugly, scrappy, what-was-he-thinking-just-throw-the-ball play of Tim Tebow? Also – have you seen the prices of billboards in NY? You’re not in Denver any more TOTO.
2 – Think back a bit for me. Remember that guy Chad P.? Remember how he used to kill us by throwing a 5-yd buttonhook on 3rd and 9? Remember how Brett did that too? What was wrong with these ridiculous players? And then (!) this clown from Southern Cal comes in and does the same thing! What the hell is in the water up in Florham Park? I think it was a bunch of ‘Schott.’ **NEWSFLASH** Schottenheimer is GONE! (!!!!!!!) Maybe we should give Mark a little bit of a break, eh? Maybe let him be the 4th year player that he needs to be? Maybe take the King of the Wildcat, Signore Sparano, and give him a brilliant piece of salary cap to play with…I’m just saying. Not to mention the special teams implications – give us a show, Westy!!!
3 – I can’t claim this as my own, original thought, but I completely agree. What Mark lacks, Tim makes up for. What Tim lacks, Mark makes up for. These guys are friends and stand-up guys. I think they will play nice together and ultimately make some magic in the Empire State. Maybe turn the JETS into the empire we have been waiting for.
4 – I think Rex needs to ban twitter from the Jets players. Ok, that’s over the top, but I they need to do something. Not 15-minutes into the talks of Tebow resurrecting the Jets offense, Antonio Cromartie had his twitter abuzz: “Y bring Tebow in when we need to bring in more Weapons for @Mark_Sanchez let’s build the team around him. We already signed to 3 year ext.” In the words of an old friend, “C’mon, MAN!!!”
