Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
It is no secret the New York Jets didn’t create an ideal environment for Mark Sanchez to succeed in, especially the previous couple of seasons. Yes, he gets the majority of the blame for not elevating his play in 2011 and 2012 but you are kidding yourself if you think he was put into a favorable situation. What is important now is that the Jets learn from their mistakes with Sanchez and work to create a quarterback friendly environment for Geno Smith. What does that involve?
Consistency - At the beginning of Mark Sanchez’s four seasons as the Jets starting quarterback he had a different top three wide receivers in every single year.

In 2010, it was Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery and Brad Smith (and then Santonio Holmes started playing in week 5 after a four game suspension).

As the new season approaches, most assume that while Geno Smith could eventually take over as the New York Jets' starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez will fill the role to open the year.
