The Turn On The Jets 12 pack with predictions and thoughts on the Super Bowl and the New York Jets
- Ryan talks Super Bowl, Revis vs. Sherman
NEW YORK — Yeah, Rex Ryan likes Richard Sherman as a cornerback. But he’s no Darrelle Revis.
Obviously, the New York Jets’ coach is biased when it comes to the Great Cornerback Debate, but he claimed that Revis’ performances in 2009 and 2010 were superior to what Sherman did this season for the Seattle Seahawks.

NEW YORK — The New York Jets soon have to make a decision on quarterback Mark Sanchez. Based on an informal poll of former players-turned-analysts (including ex-teammates) on “Radio Row” at Super Bowl XLVIII, it’s a no-brainer:
Sanchez has to go.
“Nothing against Mark, but his time in New York is over,” said Tony Richardson, who played with Sanchez on the 2009 and 2010 playoff teams. “For Mark and the organization, it’s time for a fresh start. He deserves a fresh start.
