The New York Jets lost one potential option with Tony Romo retiring from the game. Plus why Mitchell Trubisky may be the next Mark Sanchez?
For the love of everything that is holy, Paul. Can you stop bringing up quarterbacks in every Gang Green Daily?
We get it! We don’t have a quarterback, man.
Well sorry folks, I’m just reporting the news. Which if you missed it, Tony Romo will be donning a different uniform next season.

Sharp threads young buck, but in case you happen to be one of those conspiracy theorists, here’s something to munch on.
So the Dallas Cowboys in their press release said they “wanted to do right by Tony Romo and release him.” Okay, nothing shocking there. But when Romo had a chance to expound upon his decision, he spoke with the media and left us with this additional nugget:
Tony Romo says he doesn’t “envision” coming back. Then says “it’s about 99 percent” he’s done. And adds “never say never.” So… yeah.

Which leads not only New York Jets fans around the league, but all NFL fans to think that …
Sadly, I wouldn’t get your hopes up Jets fans … because it just isn’t happening. But the Houston Texans should be throwing money at Tony as if he was a 3 a.m. stripper, but that’s none of my business.
I can see why people like ESPN’s Rich Cimini are drawing comparisons between the two. They’re similarly built, they both had minimal college football experience, but the big difference would be the Jets team that babied “The Sanchize” in 2009 and the one currently constructed are imminently different.
Cimini mentioned it at the tail end of his piece, as did I throughout my 2017 NFL Mock Draft V1, this NFL Draft is a pick your flavor when it comes to the quarterback position.
*Inserts shameless plug.* Hey, come on now, I have to pay my bills too.
Spoiler alert: my personal flavor is Deshaun Watson. He’s experienced, intelligent and the best pre-snap quarterback I’ve ever covered/evaluated.
But back to the story at hand. I don’t care what comparisons are made about a player, what analysts say in April mean nothing. It’s all about what happens on the field, so if Trubisky is their guy, and they feel he’s going to be the GOAT, then you unhesitatingly take him.
