Speaking of obnoxious, self loathing... etc.
- Rich Cimini Training Camp 2012.Cromartie seems intent on singlehandedly wrecking the preseason. Not that he did it on purpose, but he also took out Santonio Holmes in Saturday night's intrasquad scrimmage, hitting him in the back on a pass play and causing a rib injury. Cromartie, never known as a big hitter, picked a strange time to get physical.
What did Cromartie have to say for himself? Nothing. He walked off the field, refusing a PR official's attempt to have him speak with reporters. He kept going, muttering an expletive about the media.
Yeah MM is on the money with this one...reading this board i dont think some of the "fans" on here deserve a SB either...
MM is the worst beat writer in the history of the Jets. "The silent majority of long-suffering fans..." If this clown thinks there is a "silent" majority of us, he really doesn't know anything about this team or its fans. I don't understand how this guy still has a job with the garbage he writes. We need to start winning again just so we can keep people that are Vrentas-like around if we ever get the opportunity again.

Manish didn't like it when I asked him if he was out here ( jets camp) looking for more "anonymous sources."
I agree some what and disagree some what. The fans are tired of losing. Just when you think the team is getting close they fall. The spotlight is on Sanchez so he gets the brunt of it from the fans. The booing in training camp can be warranted. This is a simulation game and he was making mistakes. Not to say that Geno Smith out played - both were average at best. But with Sanchez in his 5th training camp he needs to be a lot better than that after the two prior seasons.
But when someone like Mehta writes an article trashing the fans it is comical. He and Cimini trash this team daily. They are the Mike Francesca of the news paper world. Mehta has written how bad Sanchez has been. But yet when fans express their displeasure they are called out by him?
I look at what Sanchez did from 2009-2012. He made dumb mistakes every season. He has not learned from those mistakes. But he is also 4-2 on in the playoffs all road games. That is impressive. But how many games during the season were lost due to turnovers that possibly caused us home field in the playoffs? Sanchez deserves to get booed when he makes mistakes and get cheered when he makes a play just like any other player.
People focus on it being a "free practice"...
It's not like this is a free peewee league practice. The people there spent good money to watch, maybe even more than they would for a reg season game due to driving expenses and hotel rooms out in the sticks.
And btw, the players aren't practicing for free, are they? Where's that money coming from...
