Sleeping with the enemy

Jason Taylor could be a Jet

Free-agent Jason Taylor met with the Jets brass at Gang Green’s Florham Park facilities on Wednesday.  With Jay Feely leaving for the desert, the Jets have room to sign a free-agent, granted the contract is not worth more than $1.5 million a year.  

Gary Wichard, Taylor’s agent, stated that Rex Ryan called him last weekend and said Taylor was his No. 1 target in free agency.  The Jets need an outside pass rusher, and all indications point to Vernon Gholston being a complete bust.  Wichard further stated that Jason was very flattered by the respect the Jets showed and that he desperately wants to win a Superbowl and views the Jets as a contender.   

I don’t have to tell you how odd this is, and how tough it would be for Jets fans to embrace this loser.   Back in 2004, Jason Taylor referred to Jets fans as ignorant and said “J-E-T-S is the only word they know how to spell.”  Humorous, I guess but the next season he said “I wouldn’t want to live in New York in November or December either, so they (Jets fans) come down here and fill up our stadium.” 

No, we fill your stadium because the Jets have strong fan support and the lousy Miami fans give us their tickets. 

In 2009, Taylor continued crying like a bitch saying “Jets fans take the ‘c’ and ‘l’ out of class” and implied he would rather retire than become a Jet.  

“[Jets fans are] a bunch of them chanting their dumb-ass chant and all that other stuff, being the ignorant fans they are. I said it. I don’t care if they get mad at me or not. They don’t like me anyway. Quite frankly, I don’t care… I’m just being real. I’m telling the truth. You carry yourself with some class, and we’ll talk about you as if you’ve got class. If you want to act crazy and do all the crazy things they do, I’ll call a spade a spade.” 

Jason Taylor has taken every opportunity  to show his feminine ways by insulting the fans and complaining about how Gang Green goes about their business.  I haven’t even mentioned how the fruit-loop embarrassed himself on Dancing with the Stars.  Tension is bound to arise with Taylor and the fans, especially if he doesn’t perform, and particularly because at age 36 his better days are behind him.  

Nonetheless, 2009 was a solid year for the transformed Linebacker as Taylor recorded 7 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, an interception and 42 tackles.  

If Rex wants Taylor on the team, and believes he will improve an already solid defense, then bring him on.  Both Rex and Tannenbaum have shown that they are pretty good evaluators of talent.   Furthermore, I personally never got caught up in Taylor’s comments because they were meaningless and at the end of the day the only loyalty is to that green piece of paper.  If Johnny Damon can become a Yankee, I guess Jason Taylor can up his worth and join the Jets. 

As a die-hard Jets fan, the past will be put aside if Jason goes out there in week 1 and knocks Tom Brady out of the game in the first series and ultimately brings Gang Green closer to a Superbowl.
