Tebow.”Everyone speculated as to whether or not the mob would get its way Monday night; it didn’t, and Sanchez started the game for the Jets. His dismal performance against the 49ers last week was behind him, and he needed a big start and a win to disperse the mob.He didn’t get either. Sanchez finished 14 for 31, just under 50 percent passing. He threw for 230 yards, which is respectable. Some might argue, however, that the Jets' dismal running game led to more passing attempts for Sanchez. Couple that with two critical interceptions, and it may be best if Mark Sanchez begin sprinting across the Brooklyn Bridge.Is the feeling in New York justified? Looking at exactly what Sanchez ...

The Jets need to refuel their engines

At this point the Jets have no answers on offense at all. Tebow or Sanchez? Where’s first round pick from a few years ago in Shonne Greene. Santonio Holmes was their best offensive weapon and he’s done for the season. I think Antonio Cromartie was right when he said he was the second best receiver on the team. He beat Johnathan Joseph badly on a stop and go route on Monday...
