Found October 23, 2012 on The Jersey Jets Fan:
Mark Sanchez, you’re Jets starting QB I’ve seen an unbelievable amount of complaints and noise from countless Jets fans moaning and ******** about Mark Sanchez, especially after the Jets loss to the Patriots in overtime. I’ve seen Jets fans calling for the team to start Tim Tebow. I’ve even seen Jets fans calling for the team to start Greg McElroy, who hasn’t even suited up for a game this year! You know what I have to say to those Jets fans calling for a different quarterback? SHUT UP and get used to it, because Mark Sanchez is the New York Jets starting quarterback whether you like it or not. Yes, it’s true that Mark Sanchez hasn’t played his best football this year. Statistically, Mark Sanchez is horrendous by quarterback rating and QBR standings go, bottom 5 in the NFL in both categories. Sanchez has thrown 9 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, a few of which are awful, inexcusable, hit your head against a wall decisions. But Mark Sanchez has also shown the ability to lead the Jets in difficult situations such as a 90+ yard drive to get the Jets within striking distance of the New England Patriots in the 4th quarter. Mark Sanchez will never be Tom Brady, Eli Manning or Drew Brees. With the position he was drafted in, we all hoped he would be, but it’s just not the case. But at this point in time, the Jets best bet is to roll with Sanchez. Is Tim Tebow really going to perform any better? No, I don’t think so. And neither does the Jets coaching staff or front office. Because if the Jets really did believe in Tim Tebow aside from Jersey sales and ticket prices, they would have given him more reps while Sanchez was struggling mightily. While the Jets fan base faith in Mark Sanchez might be low, the Jets coaches have even lower faith in Tim Tebow to get the job done. And to the Jets fans that want Greg McElroy to play? Find a busy road and run across it (just kidding, but seriously). McElroy hasn’t even suited up for an NFL game this year and his experience in the league has been restricted to preseason games against 3rd strings scrubs. McElroy would get eaten alive behind center, especially with the severe lack of weapons the Jets have. Oh, I mentioned lack of weapons didn’t I? That’s going out to you Mike Tannenbaum! Because while Mark Sanchez is severely struggling, find me a quarterback that would be succeeding with Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill as their #1 and #2? They’re both fantastic young receivers but they wouldn’t be sniffing first and second team reps on 75%. Bottom line, the Jets have a total lack of weapons on offense and it’s due to the front office, not Mark Sanchez. All in all, Jets fans can stop their complaining. Because nothing is changing anytime soon. The 2012 Jets team has some heart and fight in them. They might not be the healthiest or most talented team in the NFL, but they’re going to come out and hit you in the mouth.
