Since the 2010 postseason, can you name a single big-win this team has had? A single epic comeback? A single defensive smackdown? A single bonafide star player he drafted? A single great coaching prospect he has groomed? A single big-stop to seal a victory? Nope.
Since the 2010 postseason, can you name all the huge losses this team has suffered through? All the huge halftime deficits? All the long drives surrendered? All the draft busts? All the failed coordinators? All the locker room distention? All the leads blown because the defense couldn't stop a single fourth quarter drive? Oh yes.
If we had a great team suffering under a lousy QB I'd agree with you. In fact, we saw that in 2009 under our rookie QB for a stretch. What we've got here is a team that sucks in all three phases of the game, areas in which Mark Sanchez does not play. The D sucks. The ST's brutal. The running game awful. Not a stretch at all to say that Mark sucks because of Rex Ryan's lack of coaching and focus on offense.
The Buddy Ryan Rex Ryan NFL strategy doesn't work, and he didn't build upon what he inherited to even sustain a shot at it. If you want to point fingers on last years 6-10 record, look no further than the "this is the greatest group of talent" that left Cortland last year on defense and rushing. The team was built to win games that way. We didn't build it to support Air Sanchez, forced to throw 40x a game because the D sucked and the RB sucked.
Mark Sanchez sucks. The D and the RB suck more. Blame them, leads right to Rex Ryan, doesn't it? Can't have that can we. So blame Mark Sanchez because its the clean and simple way to convince yourselves that there's an easy fix just like its always been since 1997. Not so anymore. Can't just flip the QB and make the playoffs. Can't just flip the HC and make the playoffs. We are rotten to the core.

I happen to believe he could have been handled a bit differently too. He should NOT have been given the job when he first came to the Jets! WRECKS babied him and gave him EVERY opportunity to succeed. When he sucked he still played! Most HCs would NOT have done that!
If Suckchez sat behind Favre for a year or two we might have won the Super Bowl and Sucky might have learned how to be a QB by now.

What does a subpar supporting cast have to do with Sanchez flatout not seeing open receivers and instead, chucking the ball into double and even triple coverage?
What does a subpar supporting cast have to do with Sanchez playing like a timid puss and running around the pocket like a chicken with its head cut off as soon as the least bit of pressure is applied?
The kid looks totally f*cking clueless out there and his demeanor on the field is embarrassing. The constant head hanging and pouting when things don't go his way. The sad, helpless puppy dog look that he expresses everytime he turns the ball over. It's like he concedes defeat as soon as he's faced with the smallest bit of adversity.
The majority of young QB's would kill for the setup that Sanchez was given during his first 2 years. A Top 5 running game, the most dominant OL in the league, and a Top 3 defense.
It isn't feasible to keep all of those things in tact for an extended period of time in a salary cap era. Sooner or later your "franchise" QB needs to step up and play like the player you drafted him to be. And when the Jets asked Sanchez to do more than just be along for the ride, he fell flat on his face.
Don't even give me the goofy argument about how "the Jets didn't draft him to be that kind of QB".
You don't trade up into the Top 5 of the draft for a QB in the hopes that he's the next Trent Dilfer. You take a QB that high to be the face of your franchise for the next decade in addition to being the focal point of your offense.
If all the Jets wanted was a gamemanager at the position, then they could've saved the expense of draft picks and a $60 million dollar contract by just signing someone like Kyle Orton or Jason Campbell for peanuts.
Unfortunately, 2 or 3 or more of those have been a fact for us every year during his career, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, so we've got to find someone that can work within that. It became clear this year that Sanchez can't.
Thankfully Rex Ryan is the Jets HC and hopefully will remain so for a long time because he is a very good HC
Thankfully Mark Sanchez will be on the bench or inactive for 2013 behind Garrard (and maybe McElroy or a draft pick)and released before 2014 because he is a very crappy starting QB
ALL Jet fans understand these basic facts
Mark Sanchez has been a bottom six QB every year he's been here.

Yes.Mark Sanchez sucks.
No.The D and the RB suck more.
umm... no.Blame them, leads right to Rex Ryan, doesn't it?
You got a mouse in your pocket?We are rotten to the core.
You're 100% right about his demeanor and his head hanging. It's like a spoiled kid. Granted, he's in NY, the toughest town to deal with the media, but he still says all the right things, and constantly looks defeated.
Mismanaging him by not giving him the right WR, having Holmes as a malcontent, etc., there are no excuses for overthrowing WRs, or throwing an interception to a defensive lineman. How many of those have we seen?
Once again, not everything is 100% his fault, but a strong QB would overcome and play better. He seems to turn to falter in the face of adversity in the last 2 years, unlike his first 2.
