Sometimes, I wonder just what the Jets are up too and ultimately the question has to be asked: Is this going to be the last go around for the overly boisterous coach Rex Ryan and on the bubble QB Mark Sanchez? As the summer, is rapidly approaching, get ready for tons and tons of drama surrounding this team, as surely New York City would love nothing more than to analyze his every move, criticize every decision and ultimately watch the battle between Sanchez and new kid on the block Geno Smith unfold like a melodrama down on Broadway. What will happen? 2013 marks a year in which Mark Sanchez has to put away the interviews, modeling shoots and off-the field antics in order to focus on what could be his last shot to redeem himself (after at one point he was a playoff winning QB). Although, last year was embarrassing, Mark Sanchez ultimately, has the edge over Geno Smith given his knowledge of the playbook and just his overall experience versus NFL speed. Additionally, the Jets are paying Sanchez a large sum of cash. For that reason, Sanchez will start, given his $8.25 million dollar contract promise is too much money  to not use him. Although, other names on the roster exist such as David Gerrard, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms, watch for Sanchez to get the helm going into the season. Despite, all the drama that is about to confront the media over these next coming months, we will have to wait until the preseason, to see if rookie Geno Smith is really going to push Sanchez for the #1 spot. I do know one thing, I’m sure the Jets will have a short leash. But honestly, despite all the hatred NFL fans have built for Sanchez part of me hopes that he can prove the haters wrong and rebuild his once satisfactory reputation in New York.     Games Played: 62 Touchdowns: 68 Interceptions: 69 QB Rating: 71. 7 QBR: 23.4   -       Round 1 Pick #5 (2009 NFL Draft) -       During March of 2012, the Jets signed Mark Sanchez to a 3-year contract extension that includes $20 million in guarantees   2009: Defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 24-14 in the AFC Wild Card Round. Win 1 Defeated the heavily favored San Diego Chargers 17–14 to attain the Jets’ third AFC Championship appearance in franchise history. Win 2 2010: Defeated the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wild Card Round. Win 3 Defeated the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional Round 28-21. Win 4 Tied for the second most post-season victories by an NFL QB with 4.   Games Played: 62 Touchdowns: 68 Interceptions: 69 QB Rating: 71. 7 QBR: 23.4 2013 Predicted Receivers: Stephen Hill, Santonio Holmes, Jeremy Curley   Some other embarrassing moments:   Butt Fumble   Running into lineman   Potential good news: Sanchez is going to get another chance realistically, disregarding all of the criticism. He has a valid background; however last year was pretty damn embarrassing. The bottom line: like always this will be fun to watch. I just really hope they can pick up a few more weapons on offense.
