After it topped the “Not Top 10″ for 40 straight weeks, ESPN will retire Mark Sanchez’ infamous “buttfumble.” Que the jokes about ESPN not covering something about the Jets. Here is their quote: There will be comfort for Sanchez in knowing that the “Butt Fumble” – the Nov. 22, 2012 play in which he stumbled into the backside of offensive lineman Brandon Moore, fumbled, and saw the New England Patriots’ Steve Gregory return it for a touchdown – has been moved to the “Not Top 10″ rafters. “We are retiring it this week due to the start of a new NFL season, and the feeling that it was time to start fresh,” said Senior Coordinating Producer Mark Summer. “The ‘Butt Fumble’ has won the ‘Not Top 10′ each week since last Thanksgiving, and we’re not sure anything could top it.” I personally think that they should let the people decide when to retire it. We already have a candidate for worst play of the year already from Danny Trevathon. Even though it’s a new season, the “buttfumble” will live on forever. We will always have the Videos and GIFs. We even have a silent film!

Jets owner blames Mark Sanchez for injury

You would think that Woody Johnson might have learned by now how to pick and choose what to say and when to say it.  For Gang Green sakes, even Rex Ryan has turned down the rhetoric and now keeps his words to a minimum —maybe too much so. Either way, on Wednesday, the Jets owner spoke with such cringe worthy carelessness that it revealed just how much the Jets have distanced...
