06:42 PM ET 12.02 | Rory McIlroy makes no secret of being a huge U.K. futbol fan, but who knew the Northern Irishman followed U.S. football closely enough to know what a wretched job quarterback Mark Sanchez was doing for the New York Jets? Golf's No.1 took time out from is Aspen vacation with girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki to weigh in via Twitter on the quarterback controversy brewing in the bowels of MetLife Stadium: "About time the Jets got a good QB!! Ha!"

Enjoyed reading my SBNation post here about how even Rory McIlroy knows that March Sanchez stinks, but would have preferred to get credit for it: http://tinyurl.com/ce9fzcd

We're practically neighbors. I'm in Bedford. Gelatinous, Mass, is a village-de-plume.

I wish they'd have noted that when Sanchez came in, it was Greg McElroy who filled in, not quite the same name, but close enough for football.

Don't expect much here. We're usually happy with good spelling and punctuation, but even that fails us some time. Strictly middle school.

More important, when you run full speed into someone's behind, do you fumble?

Hell - if a pro golfer from across the pond understood the need to put in the third string QB, why couldn't the coaching staff?
