You don’t have to be a Star Wars nerd to think this NY Post sports cover (see a bigger version here) is fantastic. Rex Ryan as Han Solo, Joe Namath as Yoda, Nick Mangold as a Wookie an Ewok, Mark Sanchez as Luke Skywalker, and (of course) Bill Belichick as Darth Vadar.

Not much else to add here, but what an awesome, awesome cover. And this was the first shot across the bow in what has turned out to be a Boston vs. New York newspaper war.

Even the headline (Return of Jet-I), which should seem oh-so-obvious comes across as very clever. As Yoda would say, How cool this is?

RETURN of the JetI...? win one that matters before you return, still inferior to Giants and Pats, obviously

But seriously, those screaming that this is the BEST COVER EVER.....how bad were the past covers?  jeez.Really?  That is great.  Rex Ryan with the fat gut sticking out and his wife as Leia or however the heck you spell her name?  I am impressed someone got this past the editor if it is legit.  I think I may have to subscribe to that paper now.  They should have hooked up Belichek with a little more Vader gear for sure.  GO JETS ......cuz I hate the Pats!

The Giants? The San Fran Giants? Oh you mean the football team that had the biggest choke job in football in ages? And the one playing golf the last two years while the Jets were int he playoffs right? That Giants team? Gotcha now, thanks for the education Einstein.

Wow RonBoss grow a sense of humor, its a funny cover.  You can't put your Pats hat down for a second to laugh at a really funny clever cover? "Wah Brady should've been Luke" Its a New York paper. If the Boston paper had the same thing I'd laugh too.  Just like I thought the Welker press conference about feet was hysterical.  Chill out dude.
