Found March 15, 2013 on In The Neutral Zone:
If you need further proof that the Jets will not have Mark Sanchez starting at quarterback, just look at the move to let Dustin Keller go to the rival Dolphins. Keller in many respects was Sanchez security blanket in the Jets offense. Sanchez had a comfort level with Keller. When a play would break down Sanchez would fall back to Keller. There has been rumblings of the Jets being interested in Kevin Kolb. Is he an upgrade? Maybe maybe not but consider this in the past 3 years the Jets have gone through Brian Schottenheimer, Tony Sparano and now have Marty Mornhinweg as offensive coordinator. 3 offensive coordinators in 3 years is alot and asking Sanchez to adjust to each one has apparently taking some steam out of his performance.Mornhinweg was the offensive coordinator in Philadelphia so he is familiar with Kolb and Kolb knows the offense which should he sign with the Jets would gave him a leg up on Sanchez. At some point the Jets are going to have start signing some meaningful players on offense to give whoever the quarterback is going to be, something of a fighting chance. The offensive line is still going to need help and the receiver corps is very thin. And not having Keller makes that even more obvious.
