Talk about everyone’s favorite position certainly got ramped up against this week, didn’t it? We are getting down to the nitty gritty as far as the Darrelle Revis trade is concerned, and then a report comes out. Are the Jets trying to include Mark Sanchez in a Darrelle Revis trade? Oh, everyone’s ears picked up at that point, I’m sure. There was a lot of talk following the report, as to whether or not Revis would go, if he had to take Mark with him. I saw discussion about whether this would cause Revis to reconsider his demands, or Tampa Bay to pull out of the process entirely.
First of all folks, we need to keep this real, do we not?
Who brought this report out? Mike Florio! Florio?!?! Seriously? When did we resume assigning ANY credibility to any statement that Mike Florio makes? All of a sudden, Florio is a reliable source? Yeah, so is Fatcessa.
Secondly, we KNOW that it is not something that is even logical, much less logical enough to discuss. Is Tampa Bay really that stupid or desperate? “Oh sure, we are already taking your $15 million per year cornerback, throw in your dead money for your quarterback too, no problem!” Does that make sense…..to ANYBODY! Florio was clearly wiping his behind when he came up with this rumor.
Not happening. In the words of Sean Lester Durham, “Stop!”.
But now, I want to take it one step further, a bit into fantasy land, if you will. What if, by some stretch of the imagination, this scenario were to happen? What if Darrelle is jettisoned to the Bucs, and they are able to convince Tampa to bring Sanchez along?
Many will rejoice, no doubt. Everybody who wants Mark Sanchez outside the facilities faster than the plastic recyclables will be partying like it is 1999 when/if Sanchez is released. Some, myself included, will be disappointed, but will understand it. But I am not addressing my feelings about how it would be a mistake to let him go. Today, I am saying that if by some stretch, the move DOES happen, it will not secure an immediate change to the Jets’ fortunate. Remember:
…the glass is not always greener….”.
Turn the page, and I will tell you more about what I mean.
