Mark Sanchez understands the New York Jets' starting quarterback job is still up for grabs.
That doesn't mean he expects the final result to be anything different from what it has been the last four seasons: with him under center leading the team every Sunday.
''Naturally, as you progress in your career, you try and tighten up and hone in,'' Sanchez said Thursday after voluntary workouts. ''But, like I've said, this is something I dreamed about my whole life and now I'm not planning on letting go.''
Sanchez is approaching this offseason as though he is the starting quarterback, despite his hold on the job being extremely tenuous. There is one less competitor in the mix, however, with David Garrard planning to retire because his balky left knee has continued to give him trouble.
So with Garrard stepping away and New York cutting Tim Tebow two weeks ago, Sanchez, Geno Smith, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms are left on the roster.
BEST OF MAXIM
Mark Sanchez has had more than his fair share of unfair scrutinizing. Does he deserve it sometimes? Yes, all quarterbacks do, but Sanchez gets bashed week in and week out, even for games he doesn’t blow. His case is more extreme than that of Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys. I am far from a Jets fan, but while I do not like them, they are a team that has hope for the future.

Garrard plans to retire because his balky left knee has continued to give him trouble, so that means the Jets' once-crowded quarterback room has one less player. With Garrard stepping away and New...
So, being an AFC East guy, I couldn't help but notice that Mark Sanchez is making some noise again. He claims that there is still a competition at quarterback in New York. I don't think there is a better option for the Jets right now, aside from the fact that his salary is his biggest asset right now. He did admit that he needs to get better, an understatement considering...

The last four seasons in the Meadowlands have seen continued diminishing returns for Gang Green.

The latest breaking news from the New York Jets compound is David Garrard's stay with the Jets is a brief one for this veteran QB, as he is not healthy enough to compete. So what's next? Mark Sanchez is a quarterback with some magic lucky mojo. He's a guy who turned the ball over 26 times last season. A guy who played his way out of the starting job last season, yet...
