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."

Brian.  Remember that private message you sent me? You know, the one where you said you hired some "geeks" to look up my i.p and that you know where I live?

I'm still waiting Brian.... c'mon over !!  Kiss your girls goodbye first though, but don't worry about lying to them.  Just tell them you'll be doing some volunteer work in a Canadian hospital across the border from Detroit.  You'll be partially telling the truth,,, you'll be in the hospital. 

Give it a shot.... c'mon buddy !!! See ya soon???  

LMFAO

LOOK THE WANNA BE MASTER BLOGGER IS BACK TO TROLLING ME.

SINCE SPYGATE THE PATRIOTS HAVE NOT WON A SB AND HAVE  BACK TO BACK HOME PLAYOFF GAMES AND 1 TO THE JETS.

AND YOUR A LIONS FAN YOU KNOW THE TEAM THAT HAS NOT WON A PLAYOFF GAME IN 21 YEARS.

WOW THIS IS FUN

THIS JUST IN THE SAINTS JUST SCOREF ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN BECAUSE SUH AND THE LINE GOT NO PRESSURE,THE LINEBACKERS CANT TACKLE AND THE C.B'S AND SAFTIES CAN NOT COVER ANYONE.

I love how you don't reply to comments that don't make your case.  You still have nothing to say about the fact the Yankees had steroid users during their championships, and you didn't respond to the CBS member that mentioned the steroid user Jets employee that tripped a player on the sidelines.  Brian, you are the biggest loser on these boards.

So the Lions haven't won a playoff game in 21 years? Is that what matters now?  Because last I checked with you, only championships matter Brian... oh wait.... you can't say that now because your Jets haven't exactly one too many of those the last 40 years.  But wait, playoff wins didn't matter when the Tigers beat the Yankees, because they didn't win the world series.

So to recap.... playoff wins matter more in football but not so much in baseball.... gotcha !

Didn't the Jets knock the Pats out in 2010?

As a Patriots fan, I'd LOVE to see the Jets get Peyton.  It'll make the annual Jets Elimination Day that much more festive.
