Ryan: We Feel Good About Mark’s Progress

Posted by Randy Lange on December 7, 2009 – 3:05 pm

Rex Ryan wasn’t promising anything for Mark Sanchez. But the Jets head coach had a positive prognosis for his rookie quarterback’s availability on Sunday at Tampa Bay.

"We’re feeling very good about where he is right now, and the doctors are, too," Ryan said on his conference call today before the players participated in a light return-to-work practice at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center. "Could it take a turn and go south? Maybe it could. But right now we feel good about how he’s progressing."

Sanchez, of course, is progressing from his right knee injury suffered at the end of a third-quarter, third-down scramble against the Bills in Toronto last Thursday night. Ryan said his QB is undergoing vigorous rehabilitation to get himself ready to go at Tampa Bay against the 1-11 Buccaneers.

"He’s got a bungee cord on his ankle that he’s stretching. He’s been getting ice and stim treatments," Ryan said. "I’m not sure if he’s jogging. I know he’s doing a ton of different exercises."

So Ryan isn’t ready to declare on Monday if Sanchez will be ready to go by Sunday. But he said that if Sanchez does play, he’ll be wearing a brace on his right knee to go with the brace he already wears on his left knee. Asked if he knew of any other QBs who played wearing two braces at the same time, he pondered the question.

"I don’t know. Did Joe Namath?" he said. "I think Marino might’ve."

Ryan also said that Kellen Clemens, who came in for Sanchez to finish the 19-13 win over the Bills, should get some work with the first offense beginning with today’s practice.

"That’s what we’re going to look at even today. He’s got that time," Ryan said. "He can be with the ones today. We’ll progress it through the week. I think that’s only a smart thing to do."

Rex added his comment to those of his players on a story posted on newyorkjets.com earlier this afternoon regarding the Jets defense’s possible No. 1 overall ranking after tonight’s Ravens-Packers game, which would be the team’s highest ranking this late in the season since the end of the 1968 season, when the Jets finished No. 1 in the AFL.

"Well, it doesn’t surprise me that a Ryan helped coach that defense," Rex said about his dad, Buddy, who began his pro coaching career as Weeb Ewbank’s defensive line coach on that Super Bowl III outfit. "That’s something my dad was very proud of. I remember when Weeb hired him, he said he had to make a difference. If he felt he wasn’t making a difference, his career as a professional coach would be short. I think it lasted like 30 years."

Ryan also said being at the top of the defensive heap and also leading the league in rushing yards per game and per carry at this time of year doesn’t surprise him.

"We knew that going in it would be a lot of work but that we could have a defense that would be right up there," he said. "And then we wanted to run the football. And having those two things shows how close our football team is to really doing amazing things.

"Now we’ve found a lot of ways to lose games, close games. We’ve really been completely outplayed in the one game against New England. Other than that, we’ve been in every game all year. This team is close. We’re close to being a special football team."

New No. 6 in Practice

As Ryan promised, Sanchez did not work during today’s practice in the training complex’s fieldhouse. He soft-tossed before practice but then went inside to get treatment while Kellen Clemens and Erik Ainge ran the offense.

But there was a No. 6 in a red hands-off jersey on the field. It was being worn by CB Dwight Lowery, who sat out the Buffalo win with his ankle sprain suffered at New England. Lowery seemed to be moving well and Ryan said CB Donald Strickland (concussion) was imiproving also. The week’s first injury report won’t be issued until Wednesday.

Rooting Interests

Ryan admits to rooting against his former team, the Ravens, when they play on the Packers’ home turf tonight, since a win would put Baltimore a game up on the Jets in the AFC playoff hunt. And he also was happy to hear about the Raiders’ 27-24 comeback road stunner over Pittsburgh, which dropped to 6-6.

Did I say comeback? How about multi-comeback? There were five lead changes in the fourth-quarter, three of which put Oakland in the lead, of that game at Heinz Field. That equals the most fourth-quarter lead changes in the NFL in the last 10 seasons. It’s appropriate here only because the Jets were the losing team in two of those other back-and-forth games, including this year’s game at Miami and their 2006 home encounter with Peyton Manning’s Colts.

Here are the five games since 2000 with five fourth-quarter lead changes (home teams in CAPS):

 Year-Game Final Score Score After 3rd Qtr
 2002-1 Chiefs 40, BROWNS 39 BROWNS, 27-17
 2002-2 Bills 45, VIKINGS 39 (OT) VIKINGS, 26-23
 2006-4 Colts 31, JETS28 Tied, 14-14
 2009-5 DOLPHINS 31, Jets 27 Jets, 13-10
 2009-13 Raiders 27, STEELERS 24 STEELERS, 10-6

    I think it wonderful that Mark is making progress,however we need to make sure we dont rush him back before he is ready…if we make it to the playoffs we will need him more than ever.

    I guess I am somewhere in between Frank and Spicer as far as MS is concerned. At times he flashes, at times he looks just awful. I was against the pick back in April, but since he is here, he is a Jet and I support him. One thing is certain, there needs so be drastic improvement in his play next season, because we all know about the politics involved, and that is not good for us fans.

    USC 8-4 and 5-4 in the PAC-10! Sanchez would not have changed one game!
    The Jets were sold a dead horse and now they’re trying to ride it! Good job Woody!

    It’s not to early to start talking about team MVPs. I think we would all agree on TJ as offensive MVP and Revis as defensive MVP. But two unsung hero’s, from my point of view, are David Harris on the defensive side of the ball and Nick Mangold on the offensive side. All they do is play all pro caliber football game after game after game, and don’t seem to get to much attention.

    I am glad he is making progress we have won 2 in a row & have a shot at the playoffs. If he does not play we are looking at 7 & 9 at best.

    Spicer I realize you have a hard time understanding things so I will explain like I would my 7 year old.Henne and Gradkowski both have had less starts than Sanchize(not) Henne has already had 3 game winning drives this season including yesterday’s game vs. Pats.Gradkowski had a game winning drive vs. the Steelers. Your boy Sanchez has won nothing, nada, zip, zero. He outright lost at least 3 games

    If MS can’t go this weekend, Schotty has to find a way to get Brad Smith more involved. Clowney and Woodhead are in the same boat. This team has too many weapons that barely touch the ball. Look at the #’s and tell me these guys don’t deserve touches! Having the best Rushing Offense & Best Defense, but missing the playoffs, is like last year having the most Pro Bowlers and missing the Playoffs!

    Even thou Frank loves to blame Sanchez for all of the Jets problems the bottom line is this. Sanchez lost 3 games for the Jets but you win & lose as a team. The 1st Miami game we gave up 226 total yards to Brown & Williams they dominated us that loss is clearly on the D. The Jaguar game Jones Drew had 129 yards rushing & 148 total yards he ran over us another lose on the D. The 2nd Miami game 2

    2 100 yard kick returns for TD’S that lose is the on the ST’S. In those 3 games Sanchez had 649 yards 5 TD’S & 2 picks. Frank it is fun to give you the internet smack down on a daily basis.

    TMac, What does USC’S record this year have anything to do with Sanchez? Nothing thats what. Do you even wacth college football? The team is totally different the had 4 defensive players drafted in the 1st 2 rounds this year. There whole LB core is different from last year. They started a freshman QB what are you talking about? seriously do you have any idea? You are saying if Sanchez was there

  13. By Joe Volpe on Dec 7, 2009 | Reply

    Let Sanchez sit this one out. The more rest he gets the better. Start Clemons. If you are satisfied With his game go to Mark. A bad hit on Mark could be devastating.Start Clemons but have Mark ready. Two braces will affect his mobility and reactions. GO JETS…

    would not make a difference vs the freshman that starts for them. At this point you sound silly if you want to learn about college or pro football let me know I can teach you okay. USC last year had a dominate D & a O that was carried by Sanchez name a player on O taken in the 1st 4 rounds last year from USC? Ok then I just gave you a hot one let me know when you need a fresh one.

    I think MS has deffinately shown improvement throughout the year and will only get better most of his picks have come in 3 games and he’s been solid in the rest thats not bad for a young guy with alot on his mind –maybe we can beat tb without him but I don’t want to try –get healthy get wins and get to the playoffs -this team can play with any one if we hold the ball–Go jets

    Randy, That Mia game burns right now along with other losses this year. Hope at the end we are not saying what if. Mia has been a pain to the Jets all year. And i know its better for the Jags to get their 6th loss this week. I am rethinking it and now wonder if its better for Mia to lose and hope the Jags lose vs Indy and NE the following 2 weeks. Of course we have to win out.

    Ira, since the 1970 merger, the 1990 Steelers, ’91 Eagles and ’98 Chargers all had the No. 1 defense and missed the playoffs and 12 teams had the No. 1 run offense and missed the playoffs. No team has had both the No. 1 run offense and No. 1 overall defense and missed the playoffs.

    coat, Thats right. The Jags are 6-2 conf and Mia has the head-to -head tie breaker. They both must finish with 7 losses if the Jets are going to get in. Balt and Pitt play each other and one for sure will have 7.Balt is 6-4 conf and Pitt is 4-5 as of now. Pouha, Devito and Green have really stepped up their play since KJ got hurt. Imagine how good this D would be if KJ was playing. GO JETS!!!!

    Spicer now that Drew my former pet chihuahua has departed after making himself looking foolish with his ridiculous rants you are clearly holding the baton now. Therefore I am now designating you my new pet Chihuahua. Ira great question to Randy. There has never been a team to lead the league in defense and rushing that has made not made the playoffs. I am sure Spicer will blame me for that!

  25. By Frank on Dec 8, 2009 | Reply

    Forget all this calculating nonsense. Here is the reality no way we catch Denver. The Jags since they have the tie breaker have to lose at least 2 games and we must win all 4 and with Sanchez at QB there is no way that will happen. Same scenerio for the division we would have to outright win it because of our poor divisional record. We need to win all 4 and hope the Phins and Pats finish at 9-7.

    You talk of Henne and Gradkowski yet they played and studied under a starter for a year or two so did a guy name Aaron Rodgers. It works a little bit in those guys favors. Sanchez got thrown into the Mix and is doing fine for a rookie. Mistakes are part of learning. I want to win now but with the way Green looks right now anything is POSSIBLE. J-E-T-S

    I agree with you about Kellen playing well if he were to get a full week of practice. We will have to wait and see how Sanchez is tomorrow. Really with either QB the Jets need to run the ball like they did last week and contune that for the rest of the season. Somehow they need to get Woodhead the ball on some passes or screens.

  29. By TMac on Dec 8, 2009 | Reply

    My point is and has been: Sanchez was not chosen for his talent..instead his Hispanic heritage, the LA “Mark”et and his USC hype background. It’s all about the media buzz and getting “fans” to pony up their hard earned bucks for the next Joe Namath…which Sanchez clearly is not! Brady Quinn is the closest QB comparison for scramblin Sanchez…Notre Dame buzz and no arm.

    The other issue is that Pete Carroll said he wasn’t ready…is Pete wrong? No! Mark saw the writing on the wall and his agents fleeced the Jets! Had he stayed and been part of the USC mess this year, would he have been a top draft pick ? Hardly. Then again Clausen’s getting hype as a loser at ND…like the basketball (Donehy) official says, “It’s a show and not about athletics”

    Congratulations TMac in this story alone you have made some of the stupidest comments ever written.

    What I love about all these remarks is that they’re the antidote to any spin from the front office. Nobody’s taking anything at face value or letting the Jets tell them everything will be okay if they just believe in whoever. A true three-way battle for the QB job would’ve served us a lot better, even if KC still would’ve come in 3rd. EA wouldn’t be the first guy to overtake a higher-priced pick.

    ….wasn’t looking out for his own program maybe was he? Closest comparison is Brady Quinn? Quinn was benched to save 11 million dollars, now he’s starting again and playing well. I don’t care if you like Sanchez or not, but your logic borders on that of a 10 year old. Here’s a bottom line for you. If the owners want to make the most money then all they have to do is WIN. They aren’t going..

    Frank, I am going to explain this to you like my 1 year old so you understand ok. Henne had a year to sit & learn the playbook like the back of his hand & learn from Chad. You say Sanchez has more starts yes he does a whole 2 of them. So you discount the year Henne had to sit & learn but the 2 more starts Sanchez has than Henne is a big deal. Gradkowski has 15 career starts & is in his 4th year

    …going to draft someone on “Looks” before talent. They don’t care if he looks like Cliff Claven, if he wins a SB his jersey will sell. Did Sanchez play the NFL? A bit, he saw that McCoy, Bradford and Tebow were staying another year and he knew that meant he would be a top qb drafted. The Jets worked him out and decided they wanted him. Time will tell if it was the right move or not.
