As you've likely realized by now, Brian Schottenheimer is out as the offensive coordinator of the Jets and reports are that Tony Sparano's on his way in. So the team's in upheaval right now. It won't help matters that some Jets players anonymously and publicly ripped quarterback Mark Sanchez on Wednesday morning.


Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News has the story, and it's a doozy, with Jets players referring to Sanchez as "lazy," a "baby" and someone that can't win in New York.

Nightmare in New York

“We have to bring in another quarterback that will make him work at practice,” one player told Mehta. "He’s lazy and content because he knows he’s not going to be benched."

Mehta also writes that the "consensus among players" he spoke to is that the Jets need a change at quarterback, or at least a capable veteran to push Sanchez into better performances.

And the top choice for that veteran position seems to be ... Peyton Manning!

“We already have his coach — Tom Moore," one player, who Mehta calls well-respected, said. "Plus, he’s a field general and will get everyone lined up. He will get his playmakers the ball. We can win a Super Bowl with Peyton."

The issue with Peyton is that it's not as simple as "grabbing him and dumping Sanchez." First, Manning has to get cut/released/put on the trading block by the Colts. Then he has to want to come to the Jets.

Whatever, it could happen, but let's not put the cart before the horse, especially when it requires Manning wanting to play in the same locker room that just firmly shoved its current quarterback (and erstwhile leader) under the bus, calling him a "baby" in the process.

"They don’t want to be truthful with him," one player said about the way the team handled Sanchez. "They treat him like a baby instead of a man. He goes in a hole when someone tells him the truth."

See, looks like a really fun place to play. Come on down Peyton. But really, anonymously shredding the starting quarterback for a team -- besides being, ironically, lazy in its own right -- doesn't usually mean that there only needs to be one change.

UPDATED (7:33 p.m. ET): One of Sanchez's teammates has come to the rescue. That would be center Nick Mangold who tweeted today that Sanchez's accuser should "man up" and put his name with his criticism.

"That's just wrong," said Mangold, when asked today by ESPN about the comment that Sanchez was lazy. "I've never seen anybody work as hard as Mark has. I support him fully and I think the locker room does as well."

King.  Don't worry about 8ball, he's nothing more then an internet coward hiding behind a keyboard.  I don't normally argue to that degree with anybody in life let alone on the internet, but this clown has lost his mind.   He can't and will never find you or hurt you.. he's nothing more then just a punk.  A loser... a degenerate and a disgrace to his family.

Mark Sanchez was great in a pro-style offense at USC when he was moved out of the pocket. He was drafted by the Jets with a terrible offense for him. I think that something needs to be said about him leading the Jets to 2 AFC championship games in a row. Why not see how he does under a new coordinator instead of trading picks and giving up tons of money for an aging Peyton Manning coming off of injuries?

Wing -

it has been over 4 hours since i was last on this thread and cueball was fighting and trying to threaten everyone then. he left one thread to come to this one after being embarrassed and chased there.

i feel very sorry for the intelligent jet fans posting here, as he depicts jet fan as ignorant losers who respect no one ... i am not sure that is the case and seems more than a few jet posts have articulate intelligent points!


wing, he tried the same sh(t with me, i was sure to not use my home address and he still trolled my ID etc to try to access my personal information... he has even went as far as to bookmark me so he can troll when i enter a thread .. he is sick and has nothing on Hanibal Lecter!


what really surprises about this poor unfortunate individual is that his mother leaves him in the dark in her basement and allows him to play on the computer at all hours ... poor stupid fool! watch as people begin to ignore you even more!


this should fire him up a bit ...have a good night all and sorry for you jet fans!

Redwings I couldn't agree more!!!  I've had similar threats by crackball.  Tried to be reasonable but he appears to forget to take his meds and goes off the deep end threatening.

Who cares at this point - lets talk football and playoffs

Jabababa.  You're right man.... the idiot always suckers me into these stupid conversations.  The worst part for me was when he told me by private message that he knew my i.p address and knows where I live and to be careful....  I mind my own business and take care of my family.  In my world if you threaten to come to my house you go on a very special list.  If I knew he wouldn't steal my money I'd actually pay for him to visit me... the beating he would get would be one heck of a beating I tell ya.
