I almost don't need to elaborate on that, but I will.
Your stats tell you Mark Sanchez was "bottom 16" in 2009 and 2010, but the truth is he was a 22 year old kid thrown into the starting role from scratch. His first 10 games were very shaky, made his stats look awful, then he led us on a run where we won 16 of 20 games. The kid is a winner. The kid needs some playmakers restored to him. Mike Westhoff said the same thing today on the radio and he's got no reason to protect him anymore.
Let's look at the receiving starters for that divisional playoff win over the Patriots:
Jericho Cotchery (5 receptions 96 yards)
Braylon Edwards (2 receptions 52 yards 1 TD)
Santonio Holmes (3 receptions 20 yards 1 TD)
Ladanian Tomlinson (1 receptions 1 TD)
Dustin Keller (3 receptions 15 yards)
We had no one, not a single Jet, who is anywhere as good as anyone on this list except for Santonio Holmes for three weeks. For the rest of the season, we had a bunch of scrubs that wouldn't star on a high school team.
You can't do two things:
1. Overblame Mark Sanchez for our failures these last two years.
2. Underblame the horrific defense for these last two years.
This is a thread about Rex Ryan suckage. Predictably, the Rex Ryan Apologists are steering it into yet another "blame Mark Sanchez!" pile of sh-t. They can't name 10 good things about Rex, so they twist the subject matter back to the quarterback because he's the easy scapegoat. Some of us aren't so gullible.
You are clueless. Please keep posting, they are hysterical.!!!
