The mystery finally has been solved. The CDC can finally halt its investigation. The video conspirarcy theorists can finally be silenced.

The question of “Did Jets starting QB Mark Sanchez wipe his snot on backup QB Mark Brunell in the middle of the AFC championship game?” finally has been answered.

From the transcript of ESPN Radio New York, via sportsradiointerviews.com, here’s the play-by-play of what really happened, direct from Sanchez’s mouth.

“I have been getting so many text messages and phone calls about this. He is like my big brother and we have such a great relationship and I just feel so bad that it was on TV. I am on the sidelines but that is the way we are. We just have fun and joke around and keep things light because that is the way I play my best. I did not want it to be a disrespectful thing, obviously, and he knew that.  I called him the very next day, ‘I am so sorry.  I feel so bad’ and he said, ‘Oh don’t worry about it. Only 55 million people saw you fake-wipe a booger on me.’”

Aha! So, it was fake, then?

“It was like a fake. It was like a cold weather, like almost-runny-nose-not-even-a-real-b
ooger. If it would have been there it would have been a legit booger. I don’t think I could have done that to him… It was like it is cold outside and my nose is like not fully running or anything but just like a little mess around more than anything. It was more of a fake-booger-wipe if anything. If it would have been a legit booger they probably would not have showed it on TV. So that was the funny part and he just, just the way he brushed it off. ‘Oh yeah only 55 million people saw it.’ He was like, ‘You are good.’ I am so sorry. I mean he is the best. He is the best in the world and he knows I was just joking.  It is just too bad, and the worst part is, I mean, I know he is going to get me back. Nobody else is going to be around to see it. It will be worse I am sure.”

The Sanchez/Brunell incident finally resolved

Why is it more acceptable for Sanchez and Brunell to hee-haw while their team is getting wasted by the Steelers. They only had 100 yards at halftime. Derek Anderson caught flack when he was cracking jokes and laughing on the sideline with a teammate. Sanchez was involved in a bigger game on a bigger stage. Plus, the yardage they were able to pick up in the second half was from Pittsburgh playing safe to protect a lead. Polamalu never entered the box. He stayed deep center.

The Sanchez/Brunell incident finally resolved

The Steelers had the AFC Championship game from start to finish. The only thing that made is close was Ike Taylor slipping on the turf allowing Santonio to get deep on a touchdown and a fumble in their own end zone due to a mishap from a backup center causing a safety. Keep in mind Pittsburgh was winning by 14 points with 4 minutes to play in the 4th quarter.

Has anyone seen LT comment about the endless examples of the Jets "classy" behavior? I'm sure he'll tow the company line and then throw them under a bus when he leaves like he did in San Diego.  Hope it's all worth it for you LT in your quest for a ring, but it looks like the best you'll ever get is the AFC Championship game.
