All the Jets had to do was win 1 out of their last 3 games and they are in the playoffs.
The Jets had the #5 drafted QB, in his 3rd year as a NFL QB, and the guy fell flat on his face for 3 straight games with the playoffs on the line.
His last game against the Phins was one of the worst games an NFL QB could ever have.
As I recall, Brad Smith was causing a disruption in Sanchez's rhythm and Cotchery sucked. At least that was the opinion of the Sanchez supporters at the time. Now suddenly they were keys to Sanchez's earlier success.

Mark Sanchez Injury: Update on New York Jets Star's Injury
By Kyle Vassalo (Featured Columnist) on December 18, 2011
The Jets are in the process of being blown away by the Eagles in a must-win game, and to make matters worse, Jason Babin injured Mark Sanchez's neck and shoulder area in the process.
The Jets have a huge mountain ahead of them, and their quarterback being at less than 100 percent makes the climb that much steeper.
The injury persisted for the rest of the season and for a QB could've been worse than rib pain.
He goofed on not mentioning Thomas and the rest is true.
Face the truth.
The O line is not what it was those first two seasons. Hunter was a terrible, Brick was worse. Slaussen is coming off of major shoulder surgery, lucky to be ready for camp. We have zero back up at center, but all of this goes away because Sporano will go back to the ground and pound?
Thomas(i know he was hurt), Pace, Scott all sucked last season. They all have not lived up to the hype. These guys have one shot left and all will be released after this season or even before.
This is a rebuild year for the jets. After this season, I believe these players will be gone.
Greene....there are more....
Everyone is so excited about unproven rookies, as am I. With so much change coming, a team with out a top 15 QB and a coach who's just a glorified D coordinator. Face it.
I love the Jets, but they are not a contender.
