Maybe Mark Sanchez just doesn’t have it in him to be a hater like Tom Brady and Rex Ryan. But at least he plays along.
We found out this week that Brady hates the Jets. Ryan responded in kind, by saying he hates Brady (even though he threw in the respect card). But when Sanchez got his turn on Wednesday, he had nothing but love.
“No, no I love the Patriots, I love Tom (Brady),” Sanchez told reporters.
He then turned toward a TV camera and said: “Love you Tom.”
Aw, shucks. Still, this rivalary has been turned up ever since Eric Mangini headed south on I-95, and it only gets better and better. Sanchez did get to the point, saying the Jets have to bring it every time against the Pats.
“It doesn’t matter,” added Sanchez about the banter. ”We respect the heck out of him. I think he’s a great quarterback, he’s a great franchise (player). We have to bring our best when we play him, every time.”
