06:56 AM ET 06.20 | Left to a popular vote, insists one member of Gang Green, Mark Sanchez would run away with the competition. [Nick Mangold] voiced his support for the embattled Sanchez today during a promotional appearance at Washington Square Park, saying his close friend gives the Jets a better chance than rookie Geno Smith of being successful right away this fall. Asked if the rest of the locker room also hopes Sanchez will emerge as the starter, Mangold nodded. "I believe so," he told The Post. "I haven't walked around with a pen and paper and taken a poll, but from the feeling I get, the locker room wants to win. Whoever gives us the best chance to do that, we want out there -- and at this point, Mark gives us that best chance."

Looks like Sanchez has been offering his foot massages to a wider clientele.

"I believe so." Wow, what a ringing endorsement. May as well have said, "Yeah, sure. Whatever."

Jeezus Mangold, how hard is it to look around and see how many #6 tattoo's there are?

They should show it in London to drum up support for an NFL franchise there.

"Look, Liz, this is bloody hilarious."

"Oh, Phillip, have they brought back Monty Python?"

If Mark Sanchez gives your team the best chance to win....you're gonna lose.

Nick Mangold would be an excellent name choice for an adult film star. You could probably work a buttfumble and a sanchez into the plot, as well.

As a Dolpfan, I'd like to see Sanchez as the Jets quarterback too.

June 20, 2013  09:36 AM ET

WOW!!! Something tells me Rex Ryan won't have a job half way through this season. No matter how well the Jets play this season they won't make the playoffs. They are better off handing the keys to Geno Smith and letting moving forward with the future then with the a QB they plan on cutting next offseason.

Speaking for my sister and her husband who regularly go to Bills games, at this point they just hope for good weather for the pre game tailgate cook out....

Buffalo has fans???

Yes, and they must be faithful to stay that way all these years. A hardy lot, or just masochistic. Not much difference between the two.

From what I hear, real fans. Solid, loyal fans who go to an icy, old, windswept stadium to watch a perenially weak team play a game the way it's supposed to be played - outdoors, in the elements.

June 20, 2013  10:43 AM ET

I suspect their favorite QB plays for another team.

In fairness, it would be nice to give Sanchez a chance with a good OC, a decent running game, a solid line, and NFL-quality receivers...things he has not yet had in his career, particularly the last couple of years.
