The NFL Draft

NY Jets Logo
So the Jets drafted Mark Sanchez in the 1st round (trading away essentially no one of note) and then picked up Shonn Greene in the 3rd round. They're set for at least the next year or so with Thomas Jones at RB*, but I wonder if this means we'll see a two back setup like the one that the Carolina Panthers employ. I also wonder what this means for Leon Washington.

*Of course now I'm reading that he's not exactly happy with his contract situation.

On a side note, Oliver Perez (SP for the NY Mets) sucks. We paid how much for this guy this offseason? I'd like to note that we could have had Derek Lowe for about the same price, and Lowe is currently 2-1 with a 3.10 ERA while Perez is currently 1-1 with a 8.50 ERA. Oh, and Jerry Manuel says the Mets pitching must improve. Yah well, Jerry ... that's like saying a bunch of illiterate individuals better start reading more proficiently. They can't do it better until they start doing it in the first place! Aside from Santana, the Mets have NO. STARTING. PITCHING.
