    N.Y. Jets distribute 'Media Bridges' cards to players

    The New York Jets want very badly for you to think of them as anything other than a circus.

    The franchise has earned the big-top moniker over the past two years, a fallow period in which they've gone from Super Bowl contenders to AFC also-ran status.

    A new season brings new hope for both the Jets and their media relations department. Perhaps in an effort to curb meddlesome tabloid drama, the team has issued players a "Media Bridges" card of phrases to use with reporters.

    Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News got his hands on a laminated card and helpfully tweeted out photos of both sides.

    Are the Jets alone in this practice? We'd be surprised if they were. The Patriots' card probably reads "GO AWAY" in red block letters. The Jets provide more options, and for that, we're sure the players are grateful.

    I wonder if every team has the same thing.

    The latest Sanchez press conference debacle was priceless and will probably cost Rex his job.

    The best thing that can possibly happen to that team. They need to scrap that media circus from the top down.

    Eh, what do you expect? Jets are the first team in history to have a rookie QB win the job, lose the job, then win it back, all in a single night.
