    I think Hackett is the all time most hated in Jetsinsider history

    Hackett is a good one, but I'd also say Pennington, Mangini, Herm, Tannenbaum, and Favre.

    Who else?

    I happen to be on Woody Johnson's Tri-state area fundraising team for Mitt. Woody is doing an amazing job for Mitt. He must work 20 hours a day. And Obama better be nervous!

    Commander in Chief says that there 'seems to be a lot of tension' with the Jets' quarterback situation and is interested to see how it plays out.

    Everyone has an opinion on the Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow quarterback "controversy."

    Now President Obama does too.

    The leader of the free world weighed in on the Jets signal callers on 97.1 The Fan in Columbus on Thursday.

    "I gotta tell you, I don't like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of a season," Obama said. "So if I was a Jets fan, I'd be pretty nervous. Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet, but he led them to the playoffs two years in a row. I think Tim Tebow seems to be a wonderful young man, and he's got just a great winning attitude. He really steps up when things count."

    "But there's going to be a lot of tension in that situation," Obama added. "So it'll be pretty interesting to see how it plays itself out."

    Jets owner Woody Johnson is a prominent supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and is one of the former Massachusetts governor’s key fund-raisers.

    I guess we'd have to add Brady and Belichick...they're deserving

    He did for a few days, now he hates it with a passion.

    What the President also said:

    "Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet, but he led them to the playoffs two years in a row. I think Tim Tebow seems to be a wonderful young man, and he's got just a great winning attitude. He really steps up when things count ... But there's going to be a lot of tension in that situation, so it'll be pretty interesting to see how it plays itself out."

    You sure he didn't say this:

    "I gotta tell you, I don't like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of a season," Obama said. "So if I was a Jets fan, I'd be pretty nervous. Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet, but he led them to the playoffs two years in a row. I think Tim Tebow seems to be a wonderful young man, and he's got just a great winning attitude.

    Really? The last I heard ... going back to last season even... is Jets fans BOOING Tebow because he sucks.

    Am I missing something?

    Yeah, Hackett has to be up there with Shotty and Chad. I don't think Mangini, Herm, and Favre really quite cut it.

    I guess Gholston was so universally hated that he doesn't fit the model...

    I don't have any problems with what president Obama said in regards to the Jets. As a football fan, and not a Jets fan, but as a football fan? The man doesn't like a quarterback controversy during the offseason. It may not be a quarterback controversy to Jet fans (we all know Sanchez is our QB moving forward) but through the eyes of an outsider? It could be looked at as being one. Nothing to complain about there. What I do have a problem with, is with Obama being this involved in sports. As a president, he doesn't have that right to take a Sunday off in order to follow football. He shouldn't be worried about the Jets, Brady, Tebow, Patriots, Bears, Yankees, Mets, Devils, Kings etc, etc. As the president of this country? He should be focused, each and every second of the day (unless he's sleeping) on how to improve our economy and/or Country as a whole. He signed up for 4 years. He's willing to sign up for another 4 years. He needs to spend each and every second focusing on the Country as a whole, not sports. We have Soldiers of the United States dying each and every day. We have mothers who one day have their son/child, followed by the next day having to bury them because they lost their life fighting for our Country. But yet, we have Mr.Obama enjoying his little sports world? Nice to know.

    Yes, I wish our President was more concerned with horse dancing.

    I wonder if he could beat Tiger Woods.

    Message to Obama: STFU and GTFO

    Really hope we send this dude back to Chicago in November. But I am not going to get my hopes up.

    Please

    Rex and Woody wanted this when they got Tebow. My favorite team is little more than a real life soap opera
