    Mark Sanchez is on his way out as New York Jets quarterback

    The Mark Sanchez apologists make their familiar case:

    The New York Jets offense lacks weapons. ... GM Mike Tannenbaum didn't give the team depth. ... Santonio Holmes and Darrelle Revis are hurt. ... Dustin Keller has been injured and a non-factor. ... The Jets can't run the ball and can't stop the run. ... Tony Sparano has been worse than Brian Schottenheimer calling plays.

    I get it. Frankly, these are more facts than opinions. But let's not miss the obvious here.

    Mark Sanchez is the ex-quarterback of the Jets. He's done. He's finished. He's earned a demotion and an eventual ticket out of town. It is just a question of when.

    I used to be one of the Sanchez supporters. He won four road playoff games. Yes, it was with a legit defense and a powerful running attack, but you can't take that away. But over the past 21 games covering this season and 2011, Sanchez's play has regressed mightily. His attitude and lack of accountability arguably has been worse.

    If Sanchez was an average quarterback, the Jets would have knocked off the Houston Texans on Monday night in an upset special. With a chance to tie the game in the second quarter, Sanchez did the only thing he couldn't do -- throw an ill-fated pick. Jets fans couldn't be surprised. He did the exact same thing the week before against the San Francisco 49ers when the game was still a contest.

    Nobody should be surprised. Mark Sanchez can't protect the football. He is totally inaccurate.

    The Sanchez defenders argue that his receivers don't help him, that back-up tight end Jeff Cumberland could have corralled the high pass. On our SiriusXM NFL Radio show, former NFL MVP Rich Gannon explained, "A quarterback needs to know who he is throwing the ball to." Cumberland needed the ball in the bread basket. Sanchez simply can't deliver.

    I don't need stats to tell me how grotesque Sanchez's play has been. I watch the games. I see every throw. But here are a couple of nuggets of futility that will hit you between the eyes. Mark Sanchez is the first quarterback since the immortal Stoney Case, then of the 1999 Ravens, with four straight games of 25 or more passes and a completion percentage below 50 percent. Mark Sanchez is sporting a sickly season completion percentage of 48.4. That's the lowest through five games with a minimum of 100 attempts since JaMarcus Russell in 2009.

    Yep. That's Sanchez in the same breath as JaMarcus Russell and Stoney Case. Could Mark Sanchez start for another team in the NFL right now?

    And we haven't even gotten to the worst part of the Sanchez act. Mark Sanchez consistently flunks the fifth quarter.

    Against the Niners, a third-quarter interception came off a tipped pass. Against the Texans, a second-quarter pick also was tipped. Listen to Sanchez tell it, and he takes no responsibility.

    Sanchez called the 49ers play "bad luck" after the ball game. That's a totally unacceptable remark. It's the wrong attitude. It resonates with teammates and fans. Sanchez is consistently reluctant to point the thumb at himself, whether it is right or wrong. That's what quarterbacks do. That's what leaders do.

    Juxtapose Sanchez's comments with Aaron Rodgers from this week. The Green Bay Packers blew a 21-3 lead in Indianapolis on Sunday. Rodgers, talking to ESPN Milwaukee on Tuesday, put the game and the entire 2-3 campaign on his shoulders. There was no mention of the bad pass protection, the Greg Jennings injury or the defense. Those are the real reason for Green Bay's record.

    Sitting on the set of "Jets Post Game Live" on SNY watching Sanchez's press conference live on Monday night, I could see the proverbial steam coming out of the ears of my colleagues Ray Lucas and Joe Klecko. When Sanchez was done and we were back on the air, Klecko brilliantly summed up what he heard: "Sanchez is becoming a good loser."

    Sanchez deflects. He talks about being in a rhythm, which is a not-so-veiled shot a Tim Tebow coming into the games and disrupting the flow. Sanchez talks about Cumberland making some catches and missing some. There is no emotion and certainly no accountability.

    Contrast Sanchez's take to that of Chaz Schilens. The Jets receiver dropped the on-sides kick that would've put the Jets in a great position after a Joe McKnight return for a score. Schilens said he deserved all the blame for the loss.

    Somewhere, Sanchez was probably nodding his head.

    Oct. 10 will go down as a legendary day in New York sports. New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi stubbornly placed struggling Alex Rodriquez third in the team's batting order before a pivotal playoff game against the Baltimore Orioles. Then, in stunning fashion for the by-the-book Yankees skipper, Girardi pinch-hit Raul Ibanez for Rodriguez in the ninth inning and the Yanks down 1. Ibanez homered to tie the game and then entrenched himself in New York lore with a game-winning blast in the 12th.

    Earlier in the day, Rex Ryan said that Sanchez was his starter this week. He did not name him the starter for the rest of the year. It was a far cry from Rex's passionate defense of Sanchez in the past.

    If Girardi can pinch hit for A-Rod, Ryan can bench Mark Sanchez.

    I've managed to put 900 words on your screen only mentioning Tebow once. I like his energy, and the Jets need it. I know his limitations. I know his strengths. I'd start this week by using Tebow more in the Wildcat. And some point, Tebow will start to add energy and accountability.

    In reality, the Jets don't have a quarterback. John Madden said it perfectly on our "Madden Football" show on SiriusXM NFL Radio when he said, "Maybe it isn't either. Instead, it's neither."

    The swagger I saw from Sanchez in minicamp is gone. The play is awful. The act is worse.

    Ask yourself this, Rex: What would Joe Girardi do?

    Follow Adam Schein on Twitter @AdamSchein
    I saw what Klecko had said. I thought he hit it right. I like Sanchez but it does look sometimes like he is becoming a good loser. I also saw Ray Lucus drop the F Bomb during the show. It was great.

    NExt week will look alot like last week:

    Close game until Mark either:

    A. Fumbles in the pocket

    B. Gets his pass swatted at the LOS and Intercepted.

    This will be followed by a Rex Ryan "Mark is still our guy" presser.

    Nothing to see here.

    as the saying goes, talk is cheap. i really don't care what sanchez says at his pressers. but what he does on the field is important. apparently the jets were in position twice to take the game away from the texans and once he threw a pick and the other time he missed the throw. the qb is the most important position on the field and it's necessary for him to be decisive, react quickly and get the ball where it needs to be. thus far in sanchez's career he has not been a very decisive qb and this is the root of his inaccuracy. i don't know if he will ever become accurate enough. i do know he's not there yet and after 4 seasons he's not decisive enough either. that's why the jets don't have a good short pass game. it's okay to hit 40% of the long throws but you gotta be money on the short ones.

    luckily the season still has a way to go and they are playing a team in a serious rebuilding mode. after that the patsies and then doltfins. 3-0? seriously they need 2 of the 3, badly.

    I feel bad for the kid. He never had a chance with the Jets from day 1.

    #6 and the team had a great chance just this Monday.

    Mark takes more of the blame because he IS the QB; which entails a role of leadership, and he DID throw 2 INT's and fumble 2x.

    You take a kid out of school, put him in the toughest media market in the country and the drain the team of talent and its all on Sanchez? How about an OL that ranks near the bottom of the NFL or receivers who drop balls or a defense that is last against the run? Remember they gave Sanchez 8$ million extension so like it or not he is our QB at least thru the next 2 years

    One game does not make a season! Getting to and winning a SUPER BOWL is our goal not just beating the Colts with a rookie QB at the helm.
    I do predict that we will win 21 to 10 and I do not care how we scors the 21 points as long as we win!

    Not doubting you, but is it true that the Jets O line is ranked so low?

    SO we need to provide Mark with a good O line, stout defense, and talented receivers, to judge his capabilities?

    You forgot a superior running game (you know, for the masterful play action) and a brilliant OC who can scheme the Jets to victory.

    The Jets are only 51 players away from having an elite QB.

    There's no doubt that Sanchez is on his way out as the quarterback here. Jets failed him as much as he failed the Jets.

    It's crazy to think a QB should need a 1 or a 2 receiver, or more than a practice squad TE and RT. A RB that can't catch or run routes, or even run for that matter. A good QB would have made these guys pro bowlers by now. Who cares if they played 3 world class defenses, and don't add in Miami, who's defense turns out is really good. Don't worry about this being a brand new offense either. A good QB knows every offense inside and out. Sanchez blows.

    You really think hes gone?
    The capmasters informed me not for at least another year after this season.I think its why they are so delicate to bench him.

    I think they are gonna ride Sanchez all season long.

    Sanchez time is over. He may play out the next few games but seriously, he'll probably lose against the colts, get manhandled by the pats, and find a way to lose to the dolfins making this team a sorry 2-6 going into the bye week. Optimistically speaking, maybe the Jets win one against the colts but no way against the pats and Miami's run defense will put more pressure on Sanchez's weak play. I'm gunning for three losses coming up. Sorry to be a downer but the facts are the facts............

    And a top 10 special teams and that is why we went to 2 championship games even though with that kind of support qb's named dilfer and Gannon also went that far

    I know it will never happen but if they're going to roll the dice I'd do it with McElroy. This is not a knock against the Jets as I cannot see Tebow leading any team to a Superbowl let alone winning one. Put Tebow on the Pats, while his numbers would be better given the better receivers he ultimately would handicap any offense whether it be poor, mediocre or prolific.It will just be a different flavor of failure, you already know what he is capable of...he got his hat handed to him in last year's playoffs with an otherwise decent Denver team. Elway couldn't wait for an excuse to trade Tebow and likely had to seek medical attention for the 4+ hour pants tent he sprung after the Jets took him.

    McElroy ultimately may fare no better but at least you'll know for sure what you may have and this year could lend valuable experience going forward if he shows real potential. Also if that move doesn't light a competetive fire under Sanchez nothing will.
