Found November 15, 2011 on NBC New York:
You couldn't swing a dead cat this summer without hitting someone telling you that it was imperative that Mark Sanchez showed marked improvement as a quarterback this season. Because of that we thought we'd check in weekly to see how the Sanchize is progressing toward that goal. On the first drive of Sunday night's game against the Patriots, it looked like we would be celebrating a triumphant night in the career of Mark Sanchez when all was said and done. He moved the team easily down the field, taking advantage of a bad Patriots defense the same way Eli Manning had the week before and driving the Jets toward an early lead in the biggest regular season game of his life. And then he threw two incompletions in the end zone, Nick Folk missed a field goal and everything started screaming downhill. The Jets offense had a few good moments later in the game, but they all came with the Jets chasing the Patriots instead of leading the game and they were too few and far between t...

Sanchez, Jets adjust sights to wild card

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Mark Sanchez can do the math. While saying he wasn't conceding the AFC East title, Sanchez echoed Rex Ryan in pretty much doing that Tuesday when he said "the writing's on the wall" for the Jets to be battling for a wild-card spot down the stretch.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez, 11.15

On the challenge of playing on Thursday night on little rest… It’s a good challenge. There’s two ways to look at it, we can kind of hang our heads from the New England game and be upset about not being in the driver’s seat in the division, or we can turn right around, get the bad taste out of your mouth and play well on Thursday in a short week. And I think it’s obvious...

Sanchez: Things still great with coach

New York Jets…And The Hysteria Sets In

Let’s not sugarcoat anything from the New York Jets game last night. It was embarrassing to make the number of mental errors they did. The table was set perfectly for them to make a run for a AFC East title and they choked. Nobody played well. Nobody coached well. Now for some perspective: despite a missed chip shot field goal, a muffed punt, a tipped ball interception, horrific...
