The Penalty Flag:
Mark Sanchez finished an awful season after completing only 247/453 throws for 2,883 yards. His YPA has dropped every year since Sanchez entered the NFL. He is guaranteed $8.25 million for 2013 – likely securing his spot on the Jets. How bad of a decision was the re-signing Sanchez before he proved himself? The numbers tell all.
Passer Rating – Mark Sanchez had five games (SFO, HOU, SEA, ARI, TEN) with a passer rating under 55. He finished the season with 67.9 – that’s only 191 yards per game, which put him 33rd in passing – second to last in the entire NFL (only above Matt Cassal).
Turnovers – Sanchez had ten games (@MIA, SFO, HOU, @NWE, MIA, SEA, NWE, ARI, TEN, @BUF) in which he committed more than one turnover by interception or fumble.… Read more

MARK SANCHEZ CAN'T FIND END ZONE AS JETS LOCK UP WORST SEASON IN REX RYAN ERA. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Those who subscribed to the logic that Sunday's regular season finale against the Buffalo Bills would be Mark Sanchez's final "try out" to the organization -- and potentially others -- that he can be a starter in the NFL were disappointed as the clock stuck...
Remember when Tim Tebow‘s presence was supposed to light a fire under Mark Sanchez and thus make him a better quarterback? Me neither.
In a season in which everything went wrong for the Jets, Sanchez was particularly brutal, tossing 18 interceptions and just 13 touchdown passes while completing only 54.3 percent of his passes. In other words, not only did the fourth-year quarterback...

NOT CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF
After the end of a dismal season for both franchise and quarterback, Mark Sanchez has made clear his preference for where he wants to be in 2013.
Following Sunday’s 28-9 loss to the Buffalo Bills — and an embarrassing 6-10 season — NY Jets head coach Rex Ryan was asked why he never started Tim Tebow as quarterback despite Mark Sanchez’s poor performance on the field. His answer was telling: “I'm trying to win the game, and that's it,” Ryan said. “If I thought Tebow would have helped us win the game...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' AFC East road contest with the Buffalo Bills. Nick's take: There once was a game this season that saw Mark Sanchez throw three touchdowns and complete over 70 percent of his passes -- Week 1 against the Bills. Sanchez has fallen quite hard since then but gets the...

Johnathan Snyder: Jets 17-14
Ryan Talbot: Jets 16-13
Mark Sanchez enters the game late after McElroy is injured and leads the Jets to their only touchdown of the game. The Jets season is lost but Sanchez’s win saves Ryan’s job. In the long run that’s good for all AFC East teams.

After closing a disappointing season with another loss, coach Rex Ryan was eager for another chance to lead the New York Jets to the playoffs.
Who'll be on that team - at quarterback, offensive coordinator and even general manager - remains the question as the beleaguered coach and his turmoil-riddled team prepare for an uncertain offseason following a 28-9 loss to the Buffalo...
The New York Jets final regular season game, a 28-9 embarrassing loss to the Buffalo Bills, was an accurate microcosm of the entire 2012 season. Mark Sanchez looked as pitiful as he has all year. While he finished 17/35 with 205 yards, the player once viewed as the franchise quarterback for this organization represented exactly what he has become through 4 seasons in the NFL. A first...
