Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis set the bar high last week when they declared Mark Sanchez needs to take "the next step" and become a top 10 quarterback.
But after a second straight preseason game with shaky pass protection and zero touchdowns, those expectations might need to be modified.
In discussing the many questions surrounding the state of the Jets, Revis said Wednesday that he's not convinced the front office has done enough to help Sanchez be successful.
"You've got to do what's best for the team," the All-Pro cornerback told Newsday, "and I don't know if we've been wise in that department."
If general manager Mike Tannenbaum isn't able to secure talent via trade or free agency, it's unclear just how this offense -- and specifically Sanchez -- will fare this season. After parting ways with Jerricho Cotchery, Brad Smith, Braylon Edwards and Plaxico Burress, the Jets' receiving corps consists of Santonio Holmes, an injured Chaz Schilens and several talented but inexperienced rookies.

“Sanchez! Sanchez!” yelled the five-year old girl a few steps to my right. She wore a Mark Sanchez jersey and clutched a small poster, hoping for an autograph. “Sanchez! Come over here!” The New York Jets quarterback stood about 20 yards away talking with a trainer. He was well within earshot.“Sanchez!” she yelled. Her father and brothers stood around her, caps and yearbooks...
Yesterday TJ Rosenthal wrote an article here looking at how the New York Jets can utilize the speed in their offense, namely Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley and Joe McKnight. Today TJ and myself take a closer look at what each player brings to the table -
Joe Caporoso - Holmes is an elite route runner and is explosive after the catch. He works best...
The Jets' offensive struggles? They're not entirely Mark Sanchez's fault because he doesn't have enough help around him. At least that's what one of his teammates thinks. Darrelle Revis, who has been a bit of a pain in the butt for the Jets in the last few years, is now questioning whether or not his team has done enough to aid its young quarterback. "You...
The New York Jets have hit rock bottom as an offensive unit. They can’t possibly play worse than they did against the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Giants. Their home pre-season game against Carolina needs to begin a road to improvement. Carolina has an average defense at best, so it will be good opportunity to build a little confidence and momentum heading into the regular...
Austin Howard felt more at home with the first unit Friday in his second day as the new starting right tackle for the New York Jets.
Howard got the starting nod Thursday, taking over for nine-year veteran Wayne Hunter.
''I'm on a line with three Pro Bowlers, and it can't get any better than that,'' Howard said. ''They're really helping me out...

5. New York Jets Have Failed To Score A Touchdown This only preseason, as Rex Ryan will be the first to tell you. However, it is still a cause for concern when you don't score any touchdowns in the first two games and you have Super Bowl aspirations.Mark Sanchez hasn't necessarily had the worst preseason, as he is 13/17 for 80 yards. He does have the single interception...
While Cam Newton says he's a big Tim Tebow fan, he downplays the reunion on Sunday night with his former college teammate.
Newton says his focus this week isn't on old friendships but rather keeping the offense looking sharp when the Panthers (No. 20 in the AP Pro32) visit the New York Jets in what'll certainly be his last significant playing time of the preseason.

Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason is so skeptical of Tim Tebow’s ability to play quarterback that Esiason thinks the Jets should cut Tebow. But today, when Tebow joined Esiason for a radio interview, Tebow said he believes he has already...

1) Jets: With Santonio Holmes injured and possibility of missing week one, the Jets do not have a veteran starter to play the outside. The Jets might also use this as a chance to steal a few pages from Miami and New England, not that Johnson was ever accused of becoming a pro in either system. Johnson might get a workout and sign a deal that he has to make the team to be guaranteed...
New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan finally made a change many sensed was long overdue by announcing Thursday that beleaguered RT Wayne Hunter will move back to a sixth-man role with former Baltimore Ravens backup Austin Howard moving into the Jets' starting lineup.
Hunter, who surrendered a league-worst 11 sacks among right tackles last season according to ProFootballFocus.com...
Say what you will about the wild, shirtless affair that has been the non-quarterback battle for the New York Jets.
The final authority has spoken, and unless Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow are going to be facing each other on an NFL field anytime, Madden 2013 will have the ruling on who the better quarterback is.
Sanchez has a better player rating and gets the starting spot for the...
Dear New York Jets,
Please excuse Mark from football practice until you can provide pass protection for him so that he may live to see his 26th birthday.
To say that the Jets’ offensive line has played horribly would be an understatement. Abysmal seems appropriate as they have given up 12 sacks in two preseason games. RT Wayne Hunter has been benched...
