Rex Ryan says Mark Sanchez will keep starting at QB for Jets
Despite a nightmare evening for the Jets, Mark Sanchez will keep starting at quarterback for the Jets.
Despite the beatdown, Rex Ryan said afterwards that Mark Sanchez would keep starting for the Jets moving forward.
"It's hardly on one guy," Ryan said after the game. "I thought Mark threw the ball well. Again, Mark will be the starting QB this week."
Sanchez finished the game going 26-of-36 for 301 yards and a touchdown, but he also threw an interception. Oh yes, and he ran into his offensive lineman.
It was a bizarre game for the Jets, mainly because they never used Tim Tebow, who seemed like a reasonable option when they faced a 35-3 halftime deficit. After all, if you're gonna go for broke, who makes more sense than Tebow?
Maybe Rex is staring at the next five games and hoping 9-7 and a playoff berth is an insane possibility: Arizona, Tennessee, Jacksonville, San Diego and Buffalo are a fairly easy stretch of opponents.
But if things continue the way they have, it might not matter who's under center for the Jets.
