Honestly, it's not the intention here to write about the Jets' miseries every day. But it's impossible to ignore the daily foolishness emanating from New York. Actually, the latest Jets item originates from Seattle, where former Jets (and current Seahawks) receiver Braylon Edwards weighed in on his old team's quarterback controversy.
Edwards isn't happy with the treatment former teammate Mark Sanchez is getting, and he let the fans know they should direct their anger elsewhere.
Tweeted Edwards: Don't blame Sanchez. I played there. Blame the idiots calling shots. Mark is a beast and will [prove] it when given a proper chance.
Edwards didn't identify who he meant were the "idiots," but coach Rex Ryan on Monday said he had not yet decided whether to stick with Sanchez, go with third-stringer Greg McElroy, who passed for New York's only touchdown in Sunday's 7-6 victory over the Cardinals, or give the ball to Tim Tebow, who is recovering from cracked ribs but said he could have "forced it" against the Cardinals. The Jets play Sunday in Jacksonville, which would be a homecoming for Tebow, a former University of Florida star.
"I feel good about three quarterbacks," Ryan said. "I think we’re in a lot better situation than probably a lot of teams.
"I just want to make sure I get all the facts," he added. "It’s a big decision. … So I don’t want to say that there’s a way that I’m definitely leaning. I want to make sure that everybody knows that it’s an open discussion. I want honest feedback."
