The Poll Was Right.......

This Saturday Mathew Stafford was selected with the #1 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.  The LFLS poll that ended on draft day had Stafford going as the top pick getting 12-22 first place votes. After a 0-16 season the Lions need all the help they can get.  Stafford better be the gunslinger that everyone believes he is.  Besides Stafford massive deal worth over $72 million, $78 including incentives, the talk of the draft was non other than my NY J E T S JETS JETS JETS!!!  The J E T S moved up 12 spots to make Sanchez the new face of their franchise.

The Jets traded with old Coach Eric Mangini of the Browns and moved up to get the QB Mark Sanchez to replace Brett Favre with the 5th overall pick.  For the first time in a while I was happy with a draft day move that the Jets have done.  Gholston hasn't done a thing for the Jets since he was drafted last year, so Sanchez better step up and prove Coach Carroll he made the right decision. More on the Sanchez trade later as I browse the web to see how much a Sanchez jersey would cost.  My Favre one isn't getting touched after last seasons debacle towards the end of the year.
