azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:52 AM) He is a good QB and I would love to have him. However IMO our 6 is not good value for us. Not to mention if he hates the idea of LA what is he going to think of NY? Contract situation would have to be worked out prior to trade as well. Extreme long shot to land Rivers. My money says we are more likely to land Brees.
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 09:53 AM) which is still a very long shot
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:46 AM) he may just hate ownership. LT's comments yesterday was interesting.
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) “I personally don’t think so,” Tomlinson said. “I really think this is a situation where Philip Rivers wants to move on. The reason why I think that and the reason why I feel like that is the Chargers have already approached Philip about doing another contract and he declined it. He doesn’t want anything to do with it; he didn’t even want to talk about another contract with the San Diego Chargers. That tells me that he’s thinking about moving on.”

“You never want to trade your franchise quarterback,” Tomlinson said, “that’s never the case. However, in this situation they might have no choice but to do so because I don’t know if Philip [Rivers] wants to be there anymore. I think he’s lost confidence in the organization. He’s seeing a lot of changes going on and the L.A. thing is valid; him not wanting to go to L.A., that is very valid, I can see that. So no, it doesn’t make sense to move on from Philip because he’s a franchise quarterback and he still has three to four very good years left.”
Chaos Icon : (21 April 2015 - 10:47 AM) missed the LA line. nvm. guess that is a legit concern.
Mr_Jet Icon : (21 April 2015 - 03:57 PM) He doesn't want to play for a franchise based in Los Angeles, but he'd be okay with playing for one based in New York City?
azjetfan Icon : (21 April 2015 - 04:28 PM) That's the point we have all been making.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:05 PM) Jets vs colts Monday night week2
MikeGangGree... Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:09 PM) Jets open at home against the browns
ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:11 AM) @ArifHasanNFL

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

Posted 22 August 2010 - 12:08 PM

Last April, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, 23, was leaving the "Saturday Night Live" after-party in a Lexus sedan. He folded his 6-foot-3 frame into the back seat of the car and was followed by a parade of young beauties who squeezed in behind him.

"It's like a clown car," said an observer, mouth agape at the number of girls piling into the narrow back seat grew to six.

The incident, captured on a video that went viral on the Internet, seemed to confirm what football fans wanted to believe: Sanchez was the Big Apple's party-boy bachelor -- heir to the nightlife throne of "Broadway Joe" Namath.

Sanchez knew better.

"It looked a lot more scintillating than it was," he confessed to a confidant.

The first girl who hopped into the car was his closest friend since high school, Rebecca Resnik, the Sanchez pal told The Post. The rest were Resnik's friends.

There was no canoodling in the back seat that night, no wild debauchery in a swanky hotel.

But Sanchez begged his friends not to tell anyone the truth.

"I'm happy everyone thinks that, because it makes me look cooler," he joked.

Like so many professional athletes, Mark Sanchez has a dirty secret. But it's not a love child, steroids or dog fighting.

It's that underneath his hunky veneer, he's a total dork.

"His girlfriend is New York Jets football, and she's a very jealous girlfriend," said his confidant. "I don't think he's been able or ready to carve out time for anything except his job. He's not dating right now, because he just loves football."

Sanchez grew up in Orange County, Calif., and was the big man on campus at USC. He was a popular student-government leader in high school, and a communications major in college. He was called the "Mexican Jumping Bean," even though the third-generation Mexican-American barely speaks Spanish.

He left college a year early to sign a five-year, incentive-laden deal with the Jets that could be worth up to $60 million.

His huge contract, good looks and rifle arm immediately drew comparisons to Namath, another heralded and handsome bonus baby drafted by the Jets. And like Namath, who led the team to its only Super Bowl victory in 1969, Sanchez is seen as a winner -- only the second rookie signal-caller in history to win his first two playoff games, and the poised leader of a squad that came within a game of the NFL's championship.

So how has New York's most eligible athlete (sorry, Derek Jeter fans) spent his off-season?

The highest-paid Jet could afford a private plane and a penthouse apartment overlooking Central Park -- but instead, Sanchez drives around in a Toyota Land Cruiser and lives with his brother Brandon in sleepy Bedminster, NJ.

Instead of jetting to Vegas with an entourage for his 23rd birthday last November, he enjoyed an evening of turkey legs and jousting at Medieval Times.

After a trip to Madrid with Brandon, which coincided with Spain's victory in the World Cup, the Sanchezes came home filled with a different kind of football frenzy, and spent hours on their Xbox playing the FIFA II soccer game. The football star even brought the video game and his console to upstate Cortland, where the Jets are training.

His Twitter feed is awash with goofy facial expressions, teenspeak and posts asking what Disney film he should rent that night. "Lion King? Aladdin? Jungle Book? Peter Pan? Help?" Seriously.

His biggest fear in shooting "Hard Knocks," an HBO reality show documenting the Jets' training camp, is dropping an F-bomb and disappointing his proud mother.

"I don't think he knows how big his profile actually is," said another friend.

"He's very much the [Giants quarterback] Eli Manning profile -- but cooler.

He doesn't seem to know that everyone in the room, wherever he goes, is like, 'Holy s- -t, Mark Sanchez is here.' "

If fame and money and New York have changed Sanchez, the son of a fire captain, it's only to transform him into a foodie and a music lover.

His favorite burger is at Le Parker Meridien, his favorite sushi joint is Nobu and he's a regular at the Midtown steakhouse Del Frisco's -- in part because of its proximity to the Broadway theaters.

Sanchez has seen "Wicked," "In the Heights," "Rock of Ages," "Billy Elliot" and "Memphis" multiple times, and friends say he often belts out show tunes in the car.

The quarterback even presented an award for "Memphis" at the Tony Awards last year.

Sanchez has been spotted partying at some of the city's hotspots like Abe & Arthur's, Monkey Bar and Rose Bar, but friends and observers said he's not a big drinker.

"He doesn't belly up to the bar and ask for the usual," said the confidant.

"He's never really been a drinker, but the older guys on the team have recently been teaching him about red wine."

His best friends on the team are tight end Dustin Keller, fullback Tony Richardson and center Nick Mangold, and he spends most of his time hanging out with his two older brothers.

There are women, of course. No amount of show tunes can keep a broodingly handsome quarterback single.

Since last fall, he's been linked to 20-year-old blond beauty Jennifer Mueller, a track star at USC who lives in New Jersey; bartender and model Ariana Madix, 21, whom he reportedly picked up at the Midtown watering hole Johnny Utah's; as well as celebs like supermodel Hilary Rhoda and, most recently, former "Sopranos" star Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

But Sanchez isn't focusing on the ladies right now.

"Jamie-Lynn was very sweet," said the friend, who spent time with the couple after they hit it off at a Tribeca Film Festival party. "But she's almost 30 and she's been married before, and they were just in different places. Mark's 23, and just trying to make sure he doesn't fumble the snap."

The two remain close friends after splitting up a few weeks ago just before training camp, the source said.

His teammates, however, like to give Sanchez a hard time for his heartthrob status.

"He's not meeting my daughter; she already thinks he's cute," said Jets backup quarterback and Sanchez mentor Mark Brunell, 39, about his college-aged daughter. "I like the kid, but I don't like him that much."

For his part, Sanchez doesn't want to be seen as the young guy making daughters swoon -- he's eager to prove that all the money and all the hoopla surrounding him will ultimately translate into a Super Bowl ring. "I'll be working every day, on and off the field, to justify this contract," he said last year.

So far, he is holding up his end of the deal.

Three weeks before training camp, Sanchez -- who had off-season knee surgery -- worked out twice a day with longtime trainer Todd Norman in California.
"It's always been expected of him that he's going to be great, and he always knew it in his mind, too," said Norman. "But he's never been one to be full of himself. He's just a kid from Southern California with a huge work ethic. He's the first guy I'd want next to me on the front line of a battlefield."

I honestly expected this to be some blog by a rival's fan. Not a bad read but really doesnt say too much other than Sanchez has humility.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

I'm glad he's a fan of Billy Elliot too - saw it over here in London last year and, despite the feminie storyline, it was brilliant.
