JaMarcus Russell to the Jets?
The Jets recently added other players whose organizations have soured on them over character issues, including Braylon Edwards (Browns), Santonio Holmes (Steelers) and Antonio Cromartie (Chargers).

1. While the Raiders may have soured on Russell over character issues,
they SHOULD have soured on him over talent issues. He's not a good QB. I'm not sure why the Jets would want him. I'd say he doesn't fit into the Jets system, but bad QB's don't fit into any system. He's not a starter, he's not a "reliable backup" and he's been around long enough I'm not sure he's a good candidate as a "development project", especially since he'd be the oldest of the Jets QB's.

5. "Mistake" Is Based on an Old Routine by the Comic Dana Gould
His routine went something like, "What if there was guy in your life, wearing a top hat and tails, who would jump out every time and sing "Mistake" just as you are about to make a big mistake."

8. Sanchez is actually pretty good
Russell would spend most of his time there riding the pine. (Hope they have reinforced benches. :P )

9. New York has the best restaurants in the country...well, that explains why Russell
wants to go there...still doesn't explain why the Jets want him.
