The Jets blew a huge golden opportunity yesterday against the Patriots, losing the game in overtime with Mark Sanchez getting sacked and fumbled the ball at the same time which led the Pats to winning the game.
Mark Sanchez had a very good game against New England, but there were at times where he was terrible when a lot of pressure got to him and you saw one example at the end why he may not be the franchise QB of the future.
If they won that game yesterday, that would've been Sanchez's best win yet in his NFL career, even though there was horrible play calling by the Jets OC Tony Sparano where he would stop a very good passing game by switching back to running the football didn't make any sense.
A lot of Jets fans will protest MetLife Stadium demanding that they want to see Tim Tebow at quarterback. That likely will not happen since Sanchez proved yesterday that he gives the Jets the best chance to win football games.
I will agree with Jet fans that Mark Sanchez only had a great passing day because he faced the worse secondary in all of fooball in the New England Patriots.
I still believe Mark Sanchez will be the starting QB for the rest of the season over Tim Tebow who would've made the game close yesterday if he started at QB for the Jets.
For now, I will give Sanchez a vote of confidence until he proves to me that he can't get the job done. If he struggles rest of the way and deosn't find ways to win games.
There will be a new quarterback next year for this ballclub.

After the Jets crushing loss to the Patriots on Sunday, all Jets fans seemed to fit squarely into one of two categories: Either you were happy with the way the team played, showing fight, never quitting, and going toe-to-toe with the Patriots in Foxboro, OR you pulled the “there are no moral victories!” card, bashed Mark Sanchez for his costly fumble, and said a loss is a loss...

Sigh…yesterday’s NY Jets 26-29 OT loss to the New England Patriots was tough to digest. Actually, it still is. Mark Sanchez and co. had so many opportunities to pull out the win, but just couldn’t get it done. And as everyone knows, when you’re playing against Tom Brady, you have to play for the win. Not for the tie, or not to...
Jim Nantz is either losing his mind or not paying attention to the game he's calling. It's one thing if you have a brain-fart and slip up, but Nantz obviously thought the Jets won the game.
First he called the game a "stunner" won by the "biggest underdog of the day in the league." Umm Jim, pretty sure the Pats weren't home dogs, so what the hell...
