Saquon’s favorite playoff memory? Same as all young Jets fans’

New York crossovers usually keep that tidbit to themselves

Who knew that Saquon Barkley is a Jets traitor?

The Giants’ star running back was asked about his favorite NFL playoff memory from growing up. His answer surprised both Gang Green and Big Blue Nations: the back-to-back AFC Championship Games that the Jets made in the 2009-10 seasons.

Saquon specifically mentioned what Mark Sanchez was able to do as a rookie and then repeat the following year.

When Saquon said he was a Jets fan growing up, a reporter quipped, “Not that many?” Saquon responded, “Nah, I’m not saying that.”

Jets fans certainly weren’t going to let this slide.

We can wish Saquon luck personally in his wild-card tilt with the Vikings on Sunday for old times’ sake, but Jets fans are certainly not going to pull a Barkley and root for a stadium rival.

Sorry, Saquon. Jets fans have their own star RB, and he may just be better than you are.
