Originally written on Turn On The Jets  |  Last updated 1/1/12

I have spent plenty of time defending Mark Sanchez this season and the previous two ones he has been the Jets quarterback. Yet, his three consecutive awful performances, culminating with one of the worst of his career today has me fully off the bandwagon. He gets next season with a new offensive coordinator and a new system but next year is a complete make or break season for him. And you honestly can’t even be sure at this point that he will get that chance. Crazier things have happened.

Brian Schottenheimer and his playcalls were particularly bad again. Yet, today the blame is on the Jets quarterback who threw three horrid interceptions thanks to his incessant obsession with throwing check down after check down. It was scared, pathetic, incompetent quarterbacking at its finest. He has brought all the off-season speculation about Peyton Manning and every other quarterback on himself.

We have a long off-season to go through what a failure this season has been on just about every level and we will get after it starting tomorrow. But for now, know that this offense needs to be completely destroyed and rebuilt from scratch. You want a good summary of how messed up this team was by the end of the year? Captain Santonio Holmes spent the last 2 minutes of the game while the Jets attempted a comeback sitting on the bench without a helmet and not watching the game, sulking.
