Sanchez still the Starter…That Blows

Pardon my language, but I knew Rex didnt have the balls to make the QB change, its like Mark Sanchez has some dirty secret about Rex and he holds it over his head.  I think more importantly if Sanchez has another bad showing and Rex has to pull him then there is absolutely no way they can then go back to him…This is truly a circus and they have set the franchise back several years with their commitment to Mark Sanchez.  Well heres the article from ESPN about the decision to stick with Sanchez:

Jets Bench Sanchez, McElroy Gets the Win

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Jets needed someone to save the game, and possibly their season.

Tim Tebow was unavailable, so Rex Ryan turned to third-stringer Greg McElroy, who stepped in for a struggling Mark Sanchez and energized the Jets and their fans.
McElroy threw a touchdown pass to cap his first NFL drive early in the fourth quarter, leading New York to an ugly 7-6 victory Sunday and sending the Arizona Cardinals to their eighth straight loss.
McElroy Sparks Jets
Greg McElroy drove the Jets to their only points and nearly matched Mark Sanchez’s yardage effort in less than half the drives during Sunday’s comeback victory.

“It’s just something that I sensed, that I felt,” Ryan said. “When you’re around this game long enough, you get that feeling that, `You know what? I’ve seen enough, and it’s time to make that change.”
With Tebow inactive as he heals from two broken ribs and the Jets needing to win their last five games to even have a chance of making the playoffs, Ryan pulled Sanchez for McElroy late in the third quarter — as the crowd at MetLife Stadium cheered wildly.

Hey Bart F U!

I wanted to personally address something that is somewhat bothering me.  I live in South JerseyI drive an hour and a half to the games Sundays.  This Thursday was the first home game I had missed in almost 5 years.  My Stepdad(he always goes with me) was hurt(his knee was messed up he could hardly walk) I had something I had to do and it was Thanksgiving, add the fact that I knew they were going to get blown out and I said its just not worth it.  I even travel this year I went to Miami and Pittsburgh…I’m about as Die Hard as you get.  I have 4 season tickets, 2 that I have to pay a PSL for and 2 that I have in the 300 level, mainly for friends or I give them away on this site.  So I am “Invested” in this team.  I’m 34 years old and been a fan since I can remember even though I live in Eagles Country down here.  These two teams are kind of in the same place.

Except the Jets are better off I believe.  What is irking me is the Bart Scott comments and/or the lack or respect for the fans.  People ask me why do you care, I always answer I am not only a fan but because of the thousand of dollars I spend I am financially invested in the team.  Guess what it gives me the right to bitch.  Bart Scott has been less than stellar, in fact I would say he didn’t nearly live up to the free agent billing he was given just a few years ago.  What gives him the right to complain?  Listen Bart if you don’t want to hear complaints, obscenities, or whatever then give back your 8 million dollar a year contract and quit.  Look attacking ones family and things like that are off limits but telling him he sucks is fine by me.  Its part of the reason you get paid millions dollars as a athlete because people are paying thousands of dollars to show up to watch you.

Injury Report

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow (ribs) was limited in practice on Wednesday. It’s still up in the air if he will be active against Arizona.

For Arizona, quarterback Kevin Kolb (ribs) was also limited. Kolb was limited last week and was questionable for last week’s loss to St. Louis. He ultimately did not play in that game and indications are that he will sit again, leaving the Jets to face rookie Ryan Lindley instead.

Rex Doesn’t Like Rhodes

This is Rex Ryan’s worst nightmare:

Mark Sanchez drops backs to pass … looks into the end zone … throws to Dustin Keller for the game winner … intercepted by Kerry Rhodes.

And you thought the butt fumble was a lowpoint for the New York Jets?

Rex Wants To Run the Table

This doesnt bother me that much because its not the usual bluster and really its just coach speak or at least someone saying hey my goal as a coach is to get my team to .500…makes sense and nothing wrong with it…Well heres the article:

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – Rex Ryan is making no guarantees.

No wild predictions or brash declarations these days. But the Jets coach still believes his team has a shot at the playoffs.

That’s despite the fact New York is 4-7, coming off an embarrassing loss to New England, and hasn’t won two straight games all season.

Brandon Moore Not Happy About Butt Fumble

This is an article about Brandon Moore not being happy about the Butt Fumble…really because Collingsworth basically said that Vince Wilfork pickedup Moore and threw him which is far from the truth…Did he get pushed off the ball absolutely but if this was a pass play or even a run there would have been no issue, but it was a blown play and honestly I have no idea why Sanchez picked it up and basically ran right at Moore…Moore has been a solid guard for years now, so its unfair to make him the Butt of the joke.  The article after the break:

Sanchez Butt Fumble Still The Rage

A day later, Mark Sanchez‘s butt fumble remained a YouTube sensation, one of the most talked-about football follies in a long time.

“It’s mind boggling,” former Jets great Joe Namath said Friday on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. “Are your eyes closed? You don’t see where you’re going? I don’t know. I really can’t relate to that.”

Rex Ryan still was trying to comprehend the 52-second stretch that rocked the franchise, a three-touchdown meltdown that included Sanchez’s infamous collision with Brandon Moore‘s backside.

“Obviously, watching the tape, it’s still hard to fathom, the one stretch,” Ryan said. “I’ve never seen anything like it. Coaching football or even following football, I’ve never seen anything like that. I don’t know how else to put it. I think I said nightmare (Thursday) night and I’ll stick with that, because it’s just hard to imagine.”

Up in Foxborough, Patriots coach Bill Belichick was effusive as he discussed his team’s 49-19 rout of the Jets, but even Belichick admitted the butt fumble was an absolute fluke.

“Defensively, plays like the Sanchez fumble, we didn’t really have a lot to do with that play,” he said Friday, probably smiling to himself as he discussed it on a conference call with reporters. “That was more a mistake on their part than it was a great defensive play, but we were able to capitalize on it, take advantage of it.”

In case you missed it (really, how is that possible?), Sanchez got clotheslined by Moore’s backside. Sanchez made a mental error — he turned out the wrong way on a handoff — and he scrambled forward. There was some room to Moore’s right, but for some reason, he ran directly into the right guard’s bottom and went down hard, coughing up the ball. It was returned for a touchdown.

Just like that, the Jets had a season-defining play.

“I just can’t tell you what’s going on in Mark’s mind when he admits to having thought of another play when he turned out the wrong way,” Namath said. “Are they giving him too much to think about at this stage? I don’t know where his head is, man.”

Well, we know where his head ended up — and it wasn’t pretty.
