New York Jets: Legends Speak

The Star Ledger- USA Today Sports

When you are great, you are entitled to even have a greater opinion, right? The New York Jets quarterback competition between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith has gotten so much attention that Jets legends Joe Namath and Curtis Martin are starting to speak about the situation.

Namath who is considered to be the greatest Jet quarterback of all time is staying committed to Sanchez. According to Namath, “I don’t think [the Jets] needed a quarterback… I am pulling for [Mark Sanchez]. I know that he can do better than he’s done.” Having Namath pulling for Sanchez must be a great feeling for the quarterback. As far as Smith is concerned, Namath said, Geno Smith is a “sensational athlete” with “good size.”

He is so convinced that Sanchez is the guy, that he believed the Jets should have used their NFL draft picks on other positions, “They needed the other positions filled. Possibly offensive line. They got some defensive line. The safeties are still questionable. The outside linebackers are still questionable.”… via Ebenezer Samuel of NYDailyNews.com

Martin seems to just like the fact that competition is going to take place for the quarterback position. Being the very polished guy that he is, Martin said, via Seth Walder of NYDailyNews.com “Either Mark will outperform Geno or Geno will outperform Mark.” If that’s not straight to the point, then I don’t know what is.

When legends speak people listen right?

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
