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?

Just like the NY Post to make the Big Mouthed Jets look like the good guys.  Dumb Liberals.

and is that Reavis as Obi-wan?  Is it even Obi-wan?  Good God, I was in junior high when this all happened ...

They really should have gone with Jen Sterger (or whatever) as the, um, princess/slave girl or whatever.  Go ahead, SWNs, tell me who she's supposed to be and then re-write.  Thank you.

Haha. I just knew I was going to ruffle somebody's feathers somehow some way with this post. Somehow, I completely forgot about the Ewoks, and because I was equating Mangold to Chewbacca - though clearly he's not Chewie on the cover - I thought about Wookie. STAR WARS NERDS ARE OUT TO GET ME!

In fairness he should have been a wookie.
