Mark Sanchez Named The Starting QB Against Jacksonville

For thirteen weeks, Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez has done very little to assist his team in winning. So far, Sanchez has managed a disappointing QB rating of 71.4, a miserable completion percentage of 55% and has an unbelievable amount of turnovers (13 INTs and 7 Fumbles). For Mark Sanchez to only have a total of 12 touchdowns with a few games left into the season is mind-boggling. The New York Jets are not going to win any games if their starting QB is throwing more interceptions than touchdowns.

If you didn’t know what happened last week, you probably don’t follow the NFL as much because everyone including the entire league knew exactly what occurred when the New York Jets faced the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13. Mark Sanchez had probably his worst outing yet this season and was taken out of the game by Jets’ coach Rex Ryan in the third quarter.

Sanchez who had already thrown three interceptions in the first half was replaced by third-stringer QB Greg McElroy being that backup quarterback Tim Tebow was inactive. McElroy led the Jets on his first drive with a touchdown, the team’s first scoring drive the entire game. It was this actual touchdown that won the game for the New York Jets with the score of 7-6.

With Mark Sanchez being replaced, the limelight was placed on the team and many questions were asked after the game in terms of which quarterback would start in Week 14 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

While we had our money on Greg McElroy (even Jets’ owner Woody Johnson thought so as well), coach Rex Ryan had finally decided this morning that Mark Sanchez will surprisingly be the starter for the Jets/Jaguars showdown. No matter how you view this move, this is the type of decision that could kick an immovable coach, such as Rex Ryan out of town.

Whether backup QB Tim Tebow is even available to play this coming week, his name never even came up. This is understandable, after all, it’s not like the New York Jets ever gave Tebow a chance to perform. Ten plays a game isn’t going to cut it.

Coach Rex Ryan is definitely trying to wake Mark Sanchez up, but given all the situations and criticisms that have already happened in the season, Sanchez no longer has the mindset to take the Jets to where the team wants to go. Luckily, the Jets face a Jacksonville Jaguars’ team that is probably the worst overall in the NFL with a 2-10 record.

There is without a doubt that this is Mark Sanchez’s last chance to prove the “nay-sayers” wrong. Otherwise, it’s off to another team for the four-year quarterback.

    If Sanchez flops, it might be Rex Ryan’s last game as head coach. The Jets are a mess.

      The circus of the NFL this year continues. If you want entertainment, the New York Jets is the team to follow.
