I’d tell you to mentally prepare yourself for a summer filled with anonymous quotes from kind folk in and around the Jets locker room who are saying horrible things, but such preparation isn’t needed. Recently, anonymous Jets vitriol has been just as much a part of summer fun as beer, bikinis, fast boats, and apple pie. If you don’t think apple pie belongs there, you’re doing it wrong.
We’re still about a month away from the official start of summer, but what the hell, let the fun begin. What say you now, nameless Jets player who hates someone?
Surprisingly, our first foray into Jets self mutilation this offseason was actually sort of…kind? Well, it was at least much more tame than your average verbal spear coming from the place that happiness forgot.
This one is brought to us by Mike Freeman, and of course the subject matter is Mark Sanchez, and the team’s forever mangled quarterback position. Annnd here we go…
“Everyone on the team likes Mark personally but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance.” The player went on to say that he estimates that 80-90 percent of the team feels the same way he does.
So it seems the Jets like Mark Sanchez the person, but not Mark Sanchez the quarterback. Unfortunately, last year the league stopped awarding points for smiles and shirtless pictures, so being super nice is no longer statistically relevant.
