Originally written November 23, 2012 on Helmet2Helmet:
For the second time in the past month, a Jets player has stuck up for Mark Sanchez by calling out the fans. Following the Jets' embarrassing 49-19 loss to the Patriots on Thanksgiving night, tight end Dustin Keller took to Twitter to call out those in the MetLife Stadium crowd who cheered when Sanchez went down due to injury. https://twitter.com/DUSTINKELLER81/status/271854748087492608 Late in the fourth quarter, with the game well out of reach and chants for Tim Tebow in full effect, Sanchez dropped back to pass and was hit hard by a Pats defender. Before he gingerly scraped himself off the turf and limped back to the huddle, disgusted Jets fans -- those who stuck around, at least -- and staunch Tebow supporters reigned down a round of sarcastic applause.

  • Maybe sanchez and finley(packers worthless t-end) should link up,then they can whine together...
  • scout59 : Dustin Keller is a man with character and is a hetic of a football player.Regarding Mark Sanchez he is as good as the talent that he is surrounded by.Mark is a proven winner and he has does this at USC and at the Jets.If you look at the talent hi is surrounded by then you will know the reason for the jets not winning.The Coach is the leader of his team and allows no one to supersede his authority.When players go to the media,there is a division.Negative comments about one of there own players breeds contempt,diversion and a locker room that is run by the club house lawyers.Coach lead,players play.The jets team has some great players and deserving of better leadership.
    There are seven players on that team that need a reality check.
    Coaching for 35 years and presently scouting players tells me that at the end of the season seven players need to go.
