Mark Sanchez is a New York Jet, and that's about all he can ask for right now.The much-maligned signal-caller, coming off his fourth and worst season, will head into the 2013 offseason without the starting job in hand for the first time since 2010. (photo: TexCap, Flickr)“I think he’s champing at the bit,” New Jets general manager John Idzik told WFAN Monday. “And he wants to get going with his new coordinator (Marty Mornhinweg). He’s all about competing. I got a really good feeling from Mark.”It will be up to Idzik to make Sanchez's job as difficult as possible. If he earns it, he truly needs to earn it this time. And if he earns it, Jets fans might not be tickled to death.Gang Green will almost certainly bring in a veteran via free agency or trade, and making what could be a reach in the first round for one of the questionable signal-callers coming out of college isn't out of the realm of possibility, though the Jets are better served getting a QB in Round 2 or beyond....
