Peyton and the Jets

More

With Gang Green's locker-room in turmoil, Mike Lupica looks at the move that has everyone playing fantasy GM:


...if he is healthy, and he is available, the Jets would be nuts not to go after him with everything they have, whether this same play worked out with Brett Favre once or not. Peyton Manning, if healthy, is a better quarterback than Favre ever was. And we found out this season that he is as valuable as any quarterback has ever been in the history of the sport. If you are going to dream, dream big. 

The Jets can say how committed they are to Mark Sanchez, that they are in it with Sanchez for the long haul, that they drafted him because they thought he was a Super Bowl quarterback and they still think he is a Super Bowl quarterback. Rex Ryan in particular has been pretty vocal about all that. But you would be amazed at how fast things will change for the big guy if he thinks Sanchez might get him fired.
