Is Mark Sanchez being targeted to Fail!

We all know that he doesn't need that much help, but after watching the Jets tonight it looks that way.

Geno Smith had 3 INTs and stepped out of the back of the end zone on one possession, but played into the 4th quarter. With less than 12min to play Rex Ryan puts Sanchez in the game with the 3rd string Offense.

Sanchez was 5 of 6, but did have a fumble which the Jets recovered. During his only series for the Jets he was hit twice. The second hit on Sanchez, after his pass, left Sanchez on the turf in pain holding his right shoulder.

Sanchez was seen leaving the field with I've on his right shoulder and was sent for X-rays.

It looked to me that the Jets are looking for anyway to keep Sanchez from playing other than cutting him and Smith isn't exactly winning the QB competition out right.

That's just my opinion. I'm no fan of the Jets or Sanchez, but cut the man if you don't want him.

Re: Is Mark Sanchez being targeted to Fail!

Nah , I feel rex wanted Sanchez to throw a wrench at Sanchez in a close game against an arch rival , had Sanchez pulled it off and won unharmed , first take would've said what a great tactic for Rex to get marks confidence up and ride that momentum into the opening week. As a kid you always dream of those situations where your backs against the wall in the final moments and you want to find out if you have what it takes to pull it out ... Rex was trying to give Sanchez something to pride himself on ( knowing its been a while since he's had anything to smile about )

You Can't Say Impossible without first saying Im Possible ...

Re: Is Mark Sanchez being targeted to Fail!

I agree that Sanchez doesn't need any help to fail ... he seems to do alright on his own. Geno Smith looked pretty bad in the one Jets preseason game I watched and Sanchez once again is going to be the-lesser-of-the-two-QB-evils in NY, barring injury, IMO. RR is probably just stressing early and wondering how to get through another season ... just another day-at-the-office for the NYJ, .

The Jets have been a victim of their own hubris for a while now.

Who in the hell puts a starting QB in for the first time in the 4th Qtr of a preseason game?!?!

Why?!? There is absolutely nothing to gain from it.

Like Elway did to Tebow. Once you break a spirit it becomes a lamb.

Simms is actually the
Most talented QB on the roster.

McElroy is. Geno has the ability to be.

Re: Is Mark Sanchez being targeted to Fail!

Well part of it is New York. I used to live there so I know. They just ALWAYS have to have something for people to be angry about in the New York Post on Monday, or for the liberal New York Times to wring their hands and compare it to Greek mythology and the fall of Icarus or something exotic. And if you live in that world of repeated anger and frustration, it has an eerie weird way of perpetuating itself. Much like the early days of the Saints where nothing went right.
