Rumor has it that the Jets are considering signing the 73 year old former NFL quarterback Norm Snead. Owner Woody Johnson believes that adding Snead would add interest to his staid franchise...as the NY media would flock in droves to see whether Snead can succeed...and become the oldest QB ever to start a game, in NFL history.
"Just think of all the seniors who will trade in their walkers for Jets' season tickets", crowed a jubulent Johnson. "Too much emphasis has been placed on capturing the minds and imagination of women, teens, yuppies, and Fireman Ed. There's thousands of seniors who would like nothing better than to see one of their own turn the clock back, and mess up Troy Polamalu's hair! It's only fair that that we show seniors that we care!", cried Johnson.
The NY media them turned they attentions to coach Rex Ryan, getting his views on the pending Snead acquisition. "We're just in negotiations at this point, fellas", stated Rex as he reached down to rub his right foot. "I like Norman's experience. He has the size (6'4") that you look for in a QB. Some may question his arm stength...but you don't necessarily have to be accurate to be a successful passer in this league. Just ask my offensive coordinator, Marty Mornigwig!", opined Ryan.
When asked about the great number of QBs that the Jets will bring into camp, which could include Snead, Ryan snapped, "People...we're going to find ourselves a QB for this year! I'm not interested in 2014, 2015, or 2016. After all, my job could be on the line! If Norman can show me that he can complete a 10 yard square-out route, that automatically puts him ahead of 9 out of the 10 QBs we intend to bring to camp. There will be no ifs, ands, or butts...err...tussies for you ladies...in my QB decisions this year", Ryan cried.

Stated OC Mornigwig, "With his career TDs to PI ratio (196-257), Norm should feel right at home in the Green and White"!
