...that Rex planted these stories of the Bills talking trash? would be great if he did.
ORCHARD PARK -- Mark Sanchez had heads scratching just about everywhere yesterday with his postgame accusations of rampant Bills trash talk.
While the Jets' quarterback went to great lengths to credit the smack for motivating him and his teammates to a 38-14 rout, Sanchez refused to specify which Bills had said exactly what was supposedly so offensive.
"There were plenty of them," Sanchez said, referring to the supposedly mouthy Bills. "It was one of those things where we were like, 'What? All right, whatever. We'll see what happens.' "
Sanchez also claimed that the Bills had been quoted saying that they expected him to play the way he did in the first meeting last year, when Sanchez threw five interceptions in a Buffalo win.
But the alleged trash talk -- more than likely stoked by the Jets' coaching staff worried about a letdown against a winless team -- was a surprise to the Bills and to the media corps for both teams.
The only thing remotely close to bulletin-board material came from Bills safety Donte Whitner, who told the Buffalo News that Sanchez wasn't yet at the level of Tom Brady or Peyton Manning.
Hardly an insult, but Sanchez took it differently.
"I don't have much to say about it," he said.
On a related "trash talking" note, the Jets look like they have established a strong "mystique" (started last year). The defense is truly mighty, and Sanchez hasn't tossed an INT in 3 weeks. I think the Jets can rest on their reputation now, and fire back as needed. They are in a very good position especially if they keep winning. Soon they will have games won by time of the coin toss.
glad there was a follow up to this. I was somewhat confused when I heard that Sanchez said that....Glad to hear that I wasn't the only one.
My guess is that next time there is some actual trash talk and Sanchez is asked about it, he'll respond with "I don't read the papers or listen to any of that stuff so I have no idea what they are saying....nor do I care."
