Charges against Jets: Grand theft

The New York Jets fleeced their former coach Saturday.

That's the only way to describe their move up to land Mark Sanchez. They have their franchise passer. No more broken down, old quarterbacks in New York. Sanchez will be special.

The Jets fans will come to love him. You wait and see.

And all it cost them was three players they can easily afford to lose and a second-round pick. What is Eric Mangini doing in Cleveland?
How many ex-Jets can he accumulate? Doesn't he realize they hated playing for him when he was there?

I do think safety Abram Elam, one of the players Mangini acquired, will be a good player, but they didn't get enough.
Somebody arrest Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum. He committed grand theft Saturday.

As long as Tom Brady still plays for Bellichek in New England, what does it matter what the Jets do?  They are still gonna get trampled and never make the playoffs.  They have to hope for a wild card, because Brady won't get hurt every year, and usually the North and the South eat up the 2 wild cards. So enjoy Sanchez  Jets fans, because you STILL won't be in the playoffs.

Theft?????  How can you say this was a theft, unless Sanchez is a sure thing, which he definetely is not.  He has no experience.  I don't understand what these so called experts see in Sanchez.  Congrats Jets, you just got your backup quarterback for the next 10 yrs.

I disagree with you.  The Browns were in a good position to upgrade their performance on sundays.  they did that.  And then business wise they do not have to pay a high draft pick guaranteed 20 million for riding the pine for a year or two.

If the Jets had drafted a wide receiver, the question would be, well, whose going to throw him the ball? In drafting a QB, the question is who is he going throw to? I'd rather be sure about who is throwing it, because good receivers can be found in any round if you look hard enough and scout smart.

Prisco's analysis brings me great comfort as a Brown's fan. He is wrong far more than he is right. I guess perspective is everything, because Brown's fans were all very much in favor of ditching that number 5 pick. Sanchez has one good year at USC and now he is the second coming of Peyton Manning? Maybe, but I doubt it. We Browns and Jets fans are kindred spirits. There is always next year and the draft is our Super Bowl. Enjoy this feeling, it's only downhill from here.
