Mark Sanchez was almost a Seahawk. When he was available in the draft back in 2009, the Seahawks supposedly were strongly considering him. They instead went with a guy considered to be a safe bet, in linebacker Aaron Curry. Curry didn’t work out for the Seahawks and they eventually traded him to the Raiders for a pair of picks. Curry didn’t do much in Seattle and spent most of this year on the Raiders’ physically unable to perform list. Sanchez has been the starting quarterback on two AFC championship teams. If we were to go back to 2009, and the Seahawks had a chance to take Sanchez over Curry, I’d still hope they wouldn’t do it.
Sanchez is a guy that the media constantly characterizes as having a fragile ego. He does not deal with competition well. He struggles to get his head right when his team is losing. These are not traits you want in a quarterback. Your quarterback needs to be a leader. He needs to be the guy that makes his teammates stand up and say, “That’s my quarterba...

Antonio Cromartie did not mince words when coming to the defense of the team's quarterback, saying the following about Mark Sanchez detractors: "They can kiss my a**."

BY NICK ST. DENISOffense just isn't the New York Jets' thing.Sunday, New York's offensive line had no push in the run game and couldn't protect Mark Sanchez, and when it did, Sanchez either couldn't made a decent throw or saw his receivers, namely usually sure-handed tight end Dustin Keller, drop passes.So despite a very good showing by the defense, the Jets couldn...
The Jets' front office can't seem to get enough offensive lineman to protect quarterback Mark Sanchez. Add Hayworth Hick's name to the list of the newest members of the Green and White.
The New York Jets are 3-5 this season and while players on the team continue to say words of support for quarterback Mark Sanchez, public opinion remains split. Now word come that at-least one executive inside the front office wanted to draft Russel Wilson.
Senior Personnel Executive Terry Bradway wanted the Jets to draft former Wisconsin quarterback Russel Wilson. That there was...
Russell Wilson threw touchdowns of 38 yards to Golden Tate and 31 yards to Sidney Rice, and the Seattle Seahawks sent the New York Jets to their worst start since 2007 with a 28-7 win on Sunday.
Wilson was harried for much of the day by the multiple looks from the Jets' defense. But the Seattle rookie responded with key throws, hitting Tate on the opening drive, then connecting...
The New York Jets defense came to play today. This isn’t the most talented unit and they are lacking in many key areas. Regardless, they put forth a respectable effort and gave their team every chance to be competitive and win.
The offense? Putrid. Embarrassing. Pop Warner quality. The Jets had two weeks to prepare and their major revelation was bringing Tim Tebow in the game...
After another loss to the hands of the Seattle Seahawks 28-7, The New York Jets fall to 3-6 and last place in the AFC East. Playoffs are slipping out of reach and when asked about the quarterback position Rex Ryan after the game say's he's sticking with Mark, who according to Rex gives the Jets the best chance to win. The Jets have scored 1 offensive Touchdown in 2 games...
The offense looked ugly in the early going, giving up turnovers and making the Jets look like they've got a legitimate pass rush, but an improved second half performance combined with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow hosting an all-game clinic on how not to play the QB position ultimately led to a nice, satisfying victory.
Also, I love how well the Seahawks are executing on Wilson...

Last season Tim Tebow was leading the Denver Broncos to the playoffs and a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card round. This season, Tebow is playing back up to quarterback Mark Sanchez and taking a...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' inter-conference road battle with the Seattle Seahawks.Nick's take:In Seattle, the 12th man isn't a cliché. It's a fact. The Jets travel to the top-left corner of the country to take on a Seahawks team that is 4-0 at home. Seattle rookie quarterback Russell...
A frustrating loss at St. Louis in Week 4 sent Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll in search of ways to make his offense more productive.
Russell Wilson and the Seahawks' offense had scored more than 20 points just once in four games and were converting just 28 percent of third down opportunities for the season. Against the Rams, Seattle was just 2 of 9 in third down conversions...
Coming out of a bye week, no one is expecting the 3-5 New York Jets to beat the 5-4 Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have the 3rd best defense in the league, are undefeated at home, and have the advantage when it comes to both their offense and their defense. Unlike the dismissive and treasonous so-called Jet fans that have been outnumbering the real Jet fans in Metlife stadium, the...
SEATTLE -- It was so much more than a win over the Seattle Seahawks and a loss for the New York Jets. Seattle's 28-7 thumping of the Jets on Sunday at CenturyLink Field was a showcase of teams headed in different directions. The Seahawks won their second straight game and improved to 5-0 at home. With the continuing maturation of rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and the running...
The usual suspects
The Seattle Seahawks are at home again this week, welcoming in the New York Jets. The Seahawks are looking to go on a win streak after reversing their recent luck last week in a win over the Minnesota Vikings. The Jets are just looking to keep their head above water as they sink further and further down the AFC ranks.
Last week, the Seahawks must have read this...
