You didn't want to do it. I pounded a desk emphatically to trust me on this one and to pay no mind to Mark Brunell's practice snaps. Mark Sanchez earns a game ball for his four-touchdown performance against the injury-depleted Buffalo secondary (George Wilson missed the game). It wasn't pretty. Sanchez completed 17-of-35 attempts for 180 yards, his fifth game this season with fewer than 200 passing yards. He's accounted for multiple touchdowns in eight of 11 games. Sanchez tossed touchdown passes to: - Dustin Keller: Keller finally reunited with the painted grass following a nine-game separation. Keller caught four passes for 61 yards with two touchdowns against the Bills. - Santonio Holmes: Holmes caught two passes for 22 yards. He's finished four of the past five games with fewer than 40 receiving yards. - Plaxico Burress: Burress caught four passes for 54 yards with a touchdown, his seventh of the season. He's caught three or more passes in five conse...

Refs Not Being Kind to Sanchez

From Rich Cimini’s blog: Game officials seem to have it out for QB Mark Sanchez. He has been victimized by at least two illegal hits that resulted in fines — the Broncos’ Von Miller ($25,000) and the Ravens’ Haloti Ngata ($15,000) — but no flag was thrown in either case and there have been no roughing-the-passer penalties all season. Sanchez has drawn two personal-foul...

Mark Sanchez Booed in New York, Leading Jim Leonhard to Call Out Jets Fans

Maybe it's because head coach Rex Ryan says it every chance he gets, but Jets fans expect their team to win the Super Bowl every year. Sure, they haven't won one since the Lyndon B. Johnson administration, but Fireman Ed and his crew have high hopes for the Jets. So when Mark Sanchez's Jets were sitting at 5-5, you can understand the fans had some frustrations, and they...

Jim Leonhard Unhappy with Jets Fans for Booing Mark Sanchez

Jets' season lies in the hands of QB

I think everyone knows by now that I'm not a big Rex Ryan fan. But that was a nice and also necessary comeback by his Jets on Sunday. They rallied to beat Buffalo and Mark Sanchez passed for four touchdowns. It was a career high for Sanchez, but it wasn't a convincing win for the Jets, that's for sure. The Bills have been stumbling and are pretty short on personnel....
