New York Jets, Mark Sanchez And Santonio Holmes Booed At Knicks Game

What do you think of the boos by the Knicks' fans?

Regardless of any NBA team, on any given night, no matter whom the opponent is, there’s always fans there supporting their home or away team. And even sometimes, one, two, three, or more of those fans are celebrities. Also, usually those celebrities that are cheering (usually the home team) are as a result cheered on by the home crowd fans.

However, at the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, where the Knicks took on the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Jets football players, quarterback, Mark Sanchez and wide receiver, Santonio Holmes weren’t cheered on…they were booed.

Matter of fact, booed loudly.

The New York Jets, whose season ended months ago after they went 8-8 last season and didn’t make the playoffs certainly wasn’t forgotten by the displeased Knicks’ fans.

Now while it wasn’t clear why the Knicks’ fans were booing, the answer to the question that has been out there since the addition of newly acquired quarterback Tim Tebow was certainly answered and that question; when will Sanchez first be booed?

Is it too soon?

As for Sanchez and Holmes they would decline to comment to ESPN about the fans boos at halftime. Though, Holmes would comment to twitter as he posted on his account:

Jets cornerback, Antonio Cromartie was also at Madison Garden Tuesday night. However, he wouldn’t bee booed, though he would be introduced as the wrong player.

The Knicks would go onto defeat the Clippers, 99-93, improving to 35-30 and move closer to locking up the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference.

Sanchez, threw for 3,474 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 18 interceptions last season and Holmes, who caught 51 passes for 651 yards and 8 touchdowns last season. As for Cromartie, known to Knicks’ announcer as “Shonne Greene” had 45 tackles, one forced fumble, and 4 interceptions last season.

Sources: Peyton Manning To Be Released

Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts will part ways.

After months of wondering what the answer to the question of, will Peyton Manning be an Indianapolis Colt in 2012-13 has been answered. Sources close to the team have said that owner Jim Irsay informed the 14 year Colt and four time M.V.P. that the team will release him.

Not even longer than one month after Irsay told the media that Manning can be a Colt if he wants, Irsay going completely against what he said has decided to release him.

“We can work out the contract if he wants to come back,” Irsay said. “We want him to make the call. He’s earned that. We want him to have the chance of finishing his career here if that’s what he wants to do.”

Sources have also said that Irsay who was traveling with Manning to South Florida on Irsay’s private jet will tell the news at their press conference tomorrow.

The decision to pass on Manning doesn’t come as to much of a surprise as people have been prepared for this to happen for quite sometime now.

As a result to Manning being released the billboard that manningtomiami.com sponsored becomes a likely possibility now as Peyton Manning will have the opportunity to go to any team that wants him.

Though the question that comes up now is who wants Manning? Also too, is Manning healthy enough to play and last a whole season? Well according to Manning, yes he is.

As to where Manning will land, the New York Jets have hinted that the Miami Dolphins aren’t the only team that Manning could go to as one player on the team told the New York Daily News that, they need Manning.

“I want him in New York,” a disclosed Jets player said. “He needs to be a Jet.”

As for Jets head coach Rex Ryan he defend that disclosed player as he felt the same.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to coach,” Ryan told the Daily News. “I’m never going to have a regret. So whatever that means.”

“I think Mark does have a bright future,” Ryan said. “He’s our quarterback. And those are facts. I don’t care who the player is. If Tom Brady gets released, we’re going to look at Tom Brady…We’re going to look at every single guy out there.”

So will it be the Dolphins? Jets? Or someone else? Where ever Manning will stop, not even he knows.

Fantasy Sleepers: Five Players You Must Have

My biggest sleeper.

Fantasy football is played by millions and millions of people each year and millions of those millions of people lose. They lose from a dumb trade, a touchdown, a couple yards shy of a bonus, or whatever, point is they lose. However some of them lose right from the beginning on draft day, a pretty awful way to start off the football year. So I’m here to help. These five players are five must players to have that you can steal in the later rounds of the draft that can turn your draft right around.

WR- Plaxico Burress: Selected on average in about the 8th round according to ESPN drafts Plaxico Burress is a steal. Now yes he has been away from the game for a couple years now and that can hurt a player, but in his first game back Burress would catch three balls for 66 yards including a 26 yard touchdown. Standing tall at 6’5 Burress towers over any cornerback in the NFL. Combine that with his speed and leaping ability equals one unstoppable and one great fantasy player.

Round to get him in: 6 or later

QB- Mathew Stafford: Playing in only three games last year due to injury Stafford didn’t really get to show his true talent. However people tend to underestimate the young player due to his team’s name, the Detroit Lions. With an improved defense this year and superstar Calvin Johnson and veteran Nate Burleson lined up next to him you can sign Stafford up for a big time year. Based off of ESPN online drafts Stafford has been picked on average around the 11th round.

Round to get him in: 10 or later

RB- Marshawn Lynch: Came on as a great fantasy presence towards the end of the season last year as his workload increased. Though he didn’t stop there as he continued it over in the playoffs rushing for 131 yards and a touchdown that came off of a 67 yard score breaking 8 tackles in the process. Causing Seattle fans to scream so loud that it caused a small earthquake. Selected on average in about the 8th round in ESPN leagues Lynch makes as a great flex play in ten player leagues and a for sure starter in 12 or higher.

Round to get him in: 9 or later

WR- Roy Williams: After three long awful years in Dallas Roy Williams is headed to Chicago where he’ll get a fresh start, but it gets better…Williams will re-unite with long time favorite coach Mike Martz. Martz who coached Williams in 2006 helped Williams have his best season ever as an NFL player. Under Martz Williams caught 82 balls for 1,310 yards and 7 touchdowns. Williams also did that with Jon Kitna a quarterback no where near the talent level of Jay Cutler, making Williams a must have player. Williams who has been selected on average in ESPN drafts during the middle of the 11th round is really a steal that late in the draft.

Round to get him in: 10 or later

WR- Lee Evans: A player that hasn’t had a good quarterback…ever now joins the Baltimore Ravens with up and coming quarterback Joe Flacco, can you say must have? I can selected on average 12th round in ESPN drafts Evans is another must have player. Despite being the number two option behind Boldin, it really doesn’t matter. Last year Boldin who was the number one option over Derrick Mason caught three more passes and had only 35 yards more and the same amount of touchdowns as Mason last season. So Evans who managed to strive in Buffalo will do just fine in Baltimore, maybe even better then Boldin.

Round to get him in: 11 or later
