NFL Trade Rumors:
The Jets announced that Mark Sanchez will start Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.
Reports from earlier in the week suggested that owner Woody Johnson preferred to see Greg McElroy starting this weekends game, but Sanchez had the support of OC Tony Sparano and GM Mike Tannenbaum, which most likely weighed heavily in Rex Ryan’s decision.
Things can’t get much worse for Sanchez and his recent benching will hopefully serve as some additional motivation. Another poor outing and we could be looking at McElroy finishing out the season.

Most people in the known world consider themselves experts on the mess that is the New York Jets. The criticism has been far-reaching and heavy this year as the team has fallen to 5-7.

Mark Sanchez is keeping his starting job, for now. But after being benched for third-stringer Greg McElroy last week, and chants for Tim Tebow continuing to fill the stands at MetLife Stadium, Sanchez may not have that job for very long.
Now, as the Jets...
