On Thursday, Greene said that isn’t what he meant at all and that his words were twisted. “What the quotes were was completely out of context,” Greene said according to Newsday. “What I said was, ‘We’re 3-6 and things need to change.’ I said nothing about changing quarterback, nothing about any single person on this team. I’ve been here four years. I’ve never once said anything about anybody on this team.” Here is Greene’s exact quote from the Yahoo! Sports story. You be the judge. “Something’s got to change.

Time for Rex to admit Sanchez is not his ‘guy’

I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10. At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule. But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...
