That’s when the tweets hit the fan. Half of Jets Nation instantly became excited, while the other half is so jaded, they are physically unable to believe anything good could ever happen to this organization. Unfortunately...
If Sanchez does go to TB with Revis, I will miss seeing this kind of stuff
You read right, according to a report from Pro Football Talk, a deal sending Revis to Tampa prior to the draft could include AssFumble Sanchez:
While poking around the question of whether the Jets could be trying to include quarterback-of-all-trades Tim Tebow in the package (which would keep the Jets from...
NFL Mock Draft News and Notes by DJ BoyerMark Sanchez…What is Going on?Maybe one of the most confusing stories now is the involvement/no involvement of Sanchez being tossed into the pot for Tampa Bay in the proposed Darrelle Revis trade. It does seem like this is legitimate and the Jets are not trying to force the hand of another team in order to make some type of move. Looks like...
