The New York Jets now find themselves at 5-5 for the season and after watching New York lose to the Denver Broncos on Thursday night, one question needs to be asked. Is QB Mark Sanchez the answer for the New York Jets? Supporters of Mark Sanchez will quickly point to his record of four playoff road wins, but is Mark Sanchez really a quarterback that you want to build a team around? Yes, he has won four playoff road wins, but that is more of a result of Sanchez benefiting from a very strong defense.

A Vent On The New York Jets Offense

Let’s start with something comforting Despite a recent rough patch of games, Mark Sanchez still is on the exact same pace that Eli Manning was on to start his career and we see how Eli has turned out.

Sanchez/Tebow: Two Unconventional Winners Share Scrutiny

For Mark Sanchez, two AFC championship games in his first two years as a pro hasn’t been enough to silence his doubters. Tim Tebow took over a 1-4 Broncos team that is now 4-5 under his leadership. Instead of admiring Denver’s re-entry back into the AFC West race since Tebow got behind center, detractors question his ability to throw the football. When the Jets and Broncos take...
