    But we're now told that the Jets don't genuinely expect to land Branch from a division rival, and that they jumped into the fray primarily as a favor to Branch's agent, Jason Chayut, and in order to make it harder for the Patriots to ultimately keep Branch.
    -----
    the rumors are fast and furious now
    why would the Jets do this for an agent though?

    They're not doing it for the agent, they're doing it to make a division rival weaker. Or at least attempting to do so.

    It's a perfectly sound tactic to employ. If you can make an opponent significantly weaking by simply offering Reggie Wayne money to Branch, then it will make the Pats FO's job that much harder.

    While it may piss us Pats fans off, I don't begrudge Mangini and Co. He's doing his job.

    I don't buy this theory at all. What would Mangini gain by doing this strictly as a favor to Chayut? Nothing.

    A more likely but still far fetched theory is that the Pats definitely want to trade Branch and have "asked" Mangini to make a counter offer to the Seahawks or any other team who wants to bid for Branch just so they could get more from that team in return. While it seems unlikely that this has happened, I can see Mangini doing a favor for BB as much more credible then him doing a favor for Chayut. After all, who does he owe more for his career as a football coach? It certainly isn't Chayut.

    Week 2 revenge will be so sweet.

    Seriously I wouldn´t mind getting the Jets # 1 pick. Even with Branch they would still be a sorry team.

    There are no favors of this sort to be considered between division rivals. Why can't people just accpet that Mangini is doing what he has to in order to make an opponent of his weaker. Even if the offer is hollow, it's still a good way to make life rough for the Pats.

    The more these rumors keep coming (and they WILL keep coming) the more tired I grow of this whole situation and Deion Branch.

    I don't give a sh*t what the Jets were trying to do...if they want to jump into the fray as a "favor", then whatever. They don't have any real way of knowing the Pats motivations/intentions regarding Branch at this point, so they could be ultimately just wasting their time getting involved, which would be classic Jet behavior.

    I knew this day would be interesting, but I didn't count on exhausting and annoying as well.

    Because I don't buy the theory that he would be doing this strictly for Chayut. That's what i'm saying in this thread in particular.

    Why would Mangini do anything that would HELP his division rival?
    If he did something to help the Patriots, he should be fired, because that is not in the best interest of his employer.

    Eric Mangini's job is for the Jets to win. Helping the Patriots is an abandoment of his repsonsibilities.

    If you quit your job, and went to work for a competitor, then help your former employer get stronger at your expense, you would be fired on the spot.

    Mangini's incentive is to seize the opportunity to HURT the Patriots, not to help them. Like it or not, thePatriots are the prime enemy to Eric Mangini now.

    Not to mention that being owed a 'favor' by a player agent is also an advantage to any team.

    Why not help the agent, you may get something back in the future?
    Why not hurt the Pats, its his job if he can.

    It's the doing this for the agent part that is still far fetched to me. That's all I'm saying.
