It was more of the same for Mark Sanchez and the reeling Jets in Week 10. Taking on the Seattle Seahawks and the "12th Man," Gang Green imploded for the second consecutive game, losing in a blowout, 28-7.

Sanchez, as usual, played in a big part in the outcome. He completed just 9-of-22 passes for 124 yards, threw a backbreaking red zone interception and lost a fumble, as the Jets were blanked on offense.

Somehow, Sanchez continues to stave off backup Tim Tebow, who earlier this week expressed dissatisfaction over his lack of involvement. Tebow actually completed a few passes against Seattle -- a variation from the usual gameplan -- but coach Rex Ryan stuck with the struggling Sanchez -- and will going forward.

"I believe we can win with Mark and I believe we can win with (Tim) Tebow, but I'm not going to let you or anyone else convince me otherwise," Ryan said, via ESPNNewYork.com. "This is how I feel. It gives us the best opportunity to win games, and that's the only reason I make any move."

Many in the media and a vast majority of the fanbase believe Sanchez, whose confidence is at an all-time low, should be held accountable and benched for his poor play.

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie, on the other hand, colorfully opposed.

"They can kiss my ass. Mark is our quarterback," Cromartie said. "At the end of the day, we couldn't give a damn what anybody has to say on the outside. Mark's our quarterback and will continue to be our quarterback. There's not going to be no division."

While it's noble of the outspoken Cromartie to protect unity, he's really in no position to talk after ... well, talking. In the days leading up to the game, Cromartie emphatically predicted the club would make the playoffs this season.

At 3-6, losers of five of their last six games, that statement -- along with the Jets' season -- is all but meaningless.
