A bit wistful over the fall of a regime...


Recommended Posts

What can you say in games like this? The Rex Ryan era, which started with so muh hope, two trips to the AFC title game, a head-scratching trade for Tim Tebow, and what we all thought was a young quarterback with so much upside potential, all comes to an end today. At least Rex, perhaps in a move of defiance, has given Mark Sanchez the dignity of one last NFL start, which will probably be his last n he NFL. Actually, today could very well be the last playing time Mark Sanchez ever gets inthe NFL.

I personally wih a one farewell (and offer my best wishes to the following):

Mark Sanchez - we all thought you'd get better, but you got progressively worse

Santonio Holmes - we hope you find a team that will make you the center of attention, even though you don't produce results - that is what you always wanted

Mike Tannenbaum - I'll be sure to visit your pizza parlor somewhere near the Hofstra campus

Calvin Pace and Bart Scott - I predict you end up in some Dilbert cartoon-like setting, where you get paid a lot of money for doing nothing, much like you do now

Shonn Greene - buy yourself a nice car, Shonn. For when your wife asks you to go out for some bread and milk, you'll need a car because God only knows you can't move beyond three yards on your own volition

Tim Tebow - God definitely owes you one after being traded to the Jets

I remember not too long ago when Deadspin was making fun of Sanchizes poise.

Those were days to remember.


Mark Sanchez possesses a certain je ne sais quoi. So how to describe him, just two games into his NFL career? If only there were some hackneyed bit of praise that elevates competence into a kind of holy state ...
