08:04 AM ET 08.29 | Wayne Hunter may be gone, but the troubles that ail the Jets may not yet be. Now what? Who goes next if the offense, which is the first since the 1977 Falcons to have gone the first three preseason games without scoring a touchdown, doesn't work? General manager Mike Tannenbaum, who has to be held accountable since he makes the final decisions on these things, is running out of scapegoats. In place of one disappointing right tackle in Hunter, Tannenbaum traded for another disappointing right tackle in Jason Smith, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft. Smith, who will make the same $2.45 million salary Hunter was guaranteed this season, is injury prone and has played in just 29 games in the past three seasons.

Enjoy that picture of Sanchez while you can. With offensive line issues, he'll be spending more time horizontal than vertical this season.

Or maybe our next picture of Mark Sanchez will show him with a clipboard. I dunno.

Bring back Richard Todd! He'll straighten out that mess!

Give a call out to Seattle and see if they'll give you Mr. Flynn for both Teebs and Sanchez.

The jets problems couldn't have anything to do with the head coach being a "head case" could it?

Tannenbaum = deranged captain of a circus ship.

If the OL continues to play this badly then the Jets will be starting Tim Tebow by Week 4.

Give a call out to Sea World and see if they'll give you Shamu for both Rex Ryan and Tannenbaum.

Amazing how a team that is below mediocre can command so much attention with the media. I wonder what will happen after five games when The Jesters are one and four.
