Frustrated QB: ‘All You Want to Do Is Play Again’

Posted by Randy Lange on November 14, 2011 – 2:25 am

The Jets’ division title hopes suffered a major blow Sunday night and Mark Sanchez pointed the blame at himself.

“We would have liked to win. It would have set us up real well in the division, but unfortunately I didn’t play well enough for this offense to be successful and for us to win,” he said after the Jets dropped a 37-16 contest to the Patriots at MetLife Stadium. “To have two turnovers like that and taking a couple of sacks is never good for our offense. We just didn’t play well enough and hats off to them for playing well.”

Sanchez threw for 306 yards, but he was picked off twice in the second half by Pats LB Rob Ninkovich and those turnovers led to 10 points for the visitors. He was also sacked five times as DE Andre Carter was virtually unblockable with 4.5 sacks.

“We’re not really surprised by them doing anything new,” said LG Matt Slauson. “They always do different stuff against us. They’ll play every game a certain way and then, against us, completely change. It’s obvious that their goal is to beat us badly every time.”

Instead of inside stunts, that Pats executed outside stunts with the tackles and the ends. But the Jets had the Pats on their heels early, moving right down the field on their first possession, only to come up empty when Nick Folk’s 24-yard field goal try sailed left.

After spotting the Patriots an early lead, it seemed like the Jets had weathered the storm late in the second stanza. Sanchez called his own number on a 2-yard keeper and his third rush TD of the season gave the Jets a 9-6 advantage. But they mismanaged the clock as Sanchez called timeout after a second-down play and 1:24 left in the half.

“You can’t do that,” said Sanchez. “We had a running clock and we have to use all the time. It was poor clock management on my part.”

“Time management is an absolutely critical error and that’s my responsibility,” added Rex Ryan.

The Patriots responded with an 80-yard scoring drive and the Jets trailed, 13-9, at the break.

The second half was marked by self-inflicted wounds. First Joe McKnight muffed a punt and that led to a field goal, and then Sanchez threw a little hot to Shonn Greene. Ninkovich corralled the bounce and Tom Brady capitalized with a 57-yard scoring drive that ended on a 5-yard toss to TE Rob Gronkowski in the end zone.

“I threw a little too hard to Shonn. You can’t do that,” said No. 6. “He has good hands, but he’s a halfback. You have to give him a good ball. It bounced right off his head and the ball should be in his numbers. It’s an accuracy thing right there.”

Down, 23-9, late in the third, Sanchez led a 10-play, 71-yard march that culminated on a 7-yard red zone score to Plaxico Burress. But Brady responded with an 8-yard connection to Deion Branch and the Jets were down 14 with just 8:10 remaining.

Two plays later, Ninkovich sent thousands to the exits when he returned his second pick 12 yards for a TD. There would be no magic at the Met on this night.

“He made a pretty good play. He hit Dustin, so I’m going to my checkdown [LaDainian Tomlinson], and he jumped in front of the back and he takes it back for a touchdown,” Sanchez said. “So get to the back quicker or see in front of him and don’t make that throw.”

Sanchez and the Jets had their three-game win streak snapped and they’re 5-4 with a very short week on the horizon. They’ll leave for Denver on Wednesday and will battle the Broncos on Thursday evening in another critical contest.

“I’m just excited to get back out on the field. Anytime you don’t play your best, it’s frustrating, and all that you want to do is play again,” said Sanchez, who got his 306 yards on 20-of-39 passing. “If there’s any time to get rid of a loss quickly, this is the time.

“But we’re going to have our work cut out for us. Denver is playing pretty well, they’re running with some emotion. [Tim] Tebow’s got them playing well, so we need a great road trip. We need to be focused. We need to get rid of this loss and move on and know we have to play well down the stretch.”

    I absolutely loved watching multiple replays of the not fumble play! Especially since not one of the announcers mentioned Maybin beating his man and being hit in the back FOUR TIMES! This same thing had happened earlier in the game, And all I could do was scream at my T.V.! If it were the Jets O line doing the same thing we would’ve been called for momentum and drive killing penalties! I kind of new better but, My hope was that since we were the home team we might be the beneficiaries of some calls against the pats for once. YEAH RIGHT! We are the Jets and we are not allowed to have a supposed first round bust hit (pretty boy) Tom terrific. It is as if BB told his Oline if someone gets bye you tackle them, I doo not blame him.

    Never get flagged when it matters. I am disappointed in the blatant favoritism shown to the pats, How are the Jets going to get over the hump when the defense is tired out and over penalized! when they play other teams the announcers will sometimes even point out how they did not see a penalty committed by a Jet defender but yet they are flagged. For some reason when playing the Pats we are forced to listen to the announcer tell us how Tom Brady asked them to show how much the Jets defense holds and talk about it as these orders were actually being carried out ? I know this will not make BS call better plays nor make MS read a defense better and actually throw to the open receivers, BUT it does kill momentum

    And we all now momentum can be everything! I know I am a homer, but this is Wrong. It is hard enough to win in this league on a level playing field. I once again state How much more amazing this makes the Jets triumphs of the past two seasons even more so. Can someone please clarify when in the NFL rulebook is it o.k. for one player to tackle or shove another player from behind when in a blocking or non-ball handling situation?

    I seam to remember NM getting called for a penalty for getting ran over and trying to put his hands upwards since it was all he could physically do to impede the pass rusher from nailing MS… and he was on his back and did not even slow him down once he was on the ground. Yet our defense has on multiple occasions gotten tackled or shoved from behind and………..NO CALL! NO FLAG! NO NADA!

    All 3 phases got beat tonight. The O stunk, the D stunk, and ST stunk.

    Good luck next year Jets, this year is over.

    That opening drive, I blame it all on Sanchez, he didn’t get the ball in the end zone, we come away with 0 points.

    Most of the blame for the loss falls on Sanchez. QB is the weakest position on this team and we cannot overcome that.

  7. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Nov 14, 2011 | Reply

    I’ll say this about Sanchez, and I’ve liked this about him from the start, he never makes excuses for his play and always takes responsibility. But as Don Banks writes on SI, Rex and the Jets staff sometimes seem hell-bent on making excuses for him, at least in public. I suspect even they’re getting tired of it; Rex’s calling the timeout “the stupidest play in NFL history” at halftime and then taking responsibility for it after the game is an obvious example of a guy trying (and failing) to hide what he really thinks. And then he claims the NE D is better than it looks, as if it’s simply not possible to admit that we couldn’t scheme and execute vs. them. But I guess it’s really about the refs or something, like jetfan1 is telling me…

  8. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Nov 14, 2011 | Reply

    As for the apologists for Sanchez on this site, I take no pleasure in watching him “come up small in big games,” as Banks writes the Jets must be tired of seeing him do in the regular season. My feeling is simply this: The QBs to play in the last 3 SBs are Warner, Ben R., P Manning, Brees, and Rodgers. At this time and in the near future, it’ll take a QB like that to win the big one. Trying to keep Brady off the field ’cause he’s great is one thing, doing it ’cause your own O can’t consistently score a lot is another. People who think you can go all the way with “a game manager” or without throwing downfield well can dream on. MS will either step up to SB caliber or not, the only question is how much time do you give him to do him to do it.

    Agree with jetfan1 on the “favoritism”from most of the refereeing crews the Pats regularly enjoy.However, last night the Pats didn´t need any helping hand because the Jets did all the work for them.Folk missed a chip shot from what it should have been an opening drive TD.Sanchez did his “Thing” and wrap gifted a picksix in his own Red Zone.And the D “polished” Brady´s shoes but could´t bring him down.A real Team Effort.

    If you didn’t know the names of the QBs playing given NFL game, didn’t watch, but were told one was running for his life and the other wasn’t, and asked to pick the winner, the choice would be obvious………Not beating GQ up today…………HIS OL, THE MOST EXPERIENCED UNIT ON THE TEAM. LET HIM DOWN. There was the question of adjustments when it was obvious that Carter was coming free…….As for the D, as I stated mid week, I thought that the DL was thin, that Brady would see this, and by Q4 eat them up……..The defense, in my opinion played more than admirably, they just didn’t got gassed by the best mind at the QB position……..while GQ showed he was still young giving him extra time to work before half time.

    As for Joe Mcknight, got nothing against the kid. He’s still developing. A kick return and a punt return are two very different animals. I was very surprised to hear that he was placed back there and held my breath as that punt was coming down……..Just couldn’t squeeze it for the kid………I swear to you my first thought was : HE’S GONNA FUMBLE THIS………………………….

They need to go win 5 games….I’ll be listening……………As for GQ, boy came to play. His mistakes happened late when he started pressing to make up for the vets letting him down…………CHEER UP BOYS AND GIRLS. IT’S ONLY A FOOTBALL GAME…….REMEMBER WHAT BROKE IN PA LAST WEEK. ALL FOR ALMIGHTY FOOTBALL. Personally, I’m not sure which I enjoy more the joy I get when Jets win or the new misery free Mondays after they lose……

    By the way, Jimmer, the draft order is S, OL, WR, LB, over and over for as many picks as we can get our hands on, assuming K Ellis isn’t deported. The next QB pick doesn’t come up for another few yrs depending on how Sanchez does and whether McElroy emerges as genuine competition for the job. Though if I know the Jets, don’t rule out some kind of panic move in the next yr or two like trading Sanchez for a pick and a vet QB. I wouldn’t do it, but that remark Rex made about “You can see what a difference a great QB makes” speaks volumes. He’s gonna get tired of not having one and one way or another, he’s gonna get one even if that QB has a few miles on him. Wouldn’t be surprised to see some eye-openers in the way of trades and cuts, either.

    OK, penalties always go the Pats way when these 2 team play. But, Sanchez needs to go. He is the only QB in the league that backs up as the pressure comes at him. He is horrible. Can’t rollout, or step up, or read defenses. He looks worse than most team’s back-ups. It’s time to call this fight and throw in the towell on Sanchez. Everything else is in place and the window to win the SB is closing. No WR will want to play here with him as the QB. It’s so frustrating to watch this horror show every week. I see fear in his eye, not fire. And why isn’t he talking to his receivers on the sideline instead of riding the stationary bike? Sad times for Jets fans.

    It seems SNF on NBC does not agree with the Jets. Besides that Romo melt down game which they were lucky to win they don’t pay well on SNF.
    Last night its real simple you can’t hand the Pats 17 pts because of turnovers and mistakes and expect to win. End of story. One HUGE mistake they made was not putting Cro on Gronkowski at times. Strickland and Smith were no match for him. Not having Pool could be a problem.
    With all the expectations all week this was one of the worst and must disappointing losses i have had in a long time. besides Pitt last year.

    Well unless New England has a major collapse there goes the division. Heres why, Eric Smith is the worst cover safety i have seen in some time now and him being so small and stiff at the hips doesnt help either. Matt Mulligan, I pray that Shawn Nelson gets over his illness cause Mulligan is the worst pass or run protection TE we have. Even last week against the bills when Brandon Moore gave him a peice of his mind during the game it was for the same misscues we saw last night.

    Last but definitely not least, Sanchez looks like he is regressing to me. Back to back AFC title games and a two targets like Holmes and Burress should bring out a lil more in the kid but i just dont see it him sometimes. Go Gang Green still though…..

    play well against the better ones
    hope other teams can knock off the Pats

    Once again the O can’t come thru when we need it. The opening drive could have set the tone however our red zone offense fails again. For those who have faith in Schotty’s ability to teach, all you have to do is look at the 49ers – Jim Harbaugh comes in, takes a QB off of the scrap heap (Alex Smith) and has him playing the best football of his career after many people thought they would cut him – all this after having to put together a new staff and his program in a shortened period due to the strike. Belichick’s entire 1st string defense could be hurt and he would still out-coach Schotty. Still no pass rush from the down 3 – so much was made of Devito coming back – he has no pass rush skills at all – need to draft another DE.

    By the way, anybody tempted to buy into Rex’s nonsense about how much better that NE D is than people say should read the piece on ESPN about the incredible number of recent pickups, undrafted free agents, guys who’d never played in an NFL game, and, uh, slightly out of position players (such as Julian Edelman, who at one point actually tacked LT!) in that secondary last night. A good example of Rex spinning anything any damn way he can to keep from REALLY having to take responsibility for something like our weak O, the loss of several of our own DBs this yr without bringing in anyone new of consequence, and of course the ridiculous decision to enter the season without a backup for Mangold.

    Goodbye home field advantage thru out the playoffs, goodbye 2nd seed & first round bye, goodbye 3rd or 4th seed & 1 home playoff game, We now have no shot of winning the division. The Pats by sweeping us are up 2 games with 7 games to go & if you look at the Pats schedule they have no hard games left. For arguments sake lets say the Raiders, Texans, Ravens & Pats win there divisons. We have the same record or worse record than Steelers, Bengals, Titans & Bills. If we EVEN happen to make the playoffs which right now it looks like we have no shot in HELL. We have to go to the Texans, then to the Pats & then to the Ravens. I have a better shot of winning the lotto then this team had of doing that.

GOOD TEAMS DONT PLAY LIKE THIS and make these type of HIgh school errors..Either woody needs to blow the whole thing up and start fresh from GM to REx and QB, or Rex needs to after season make these changes if he’s kept HC, Mangini only got 3 yrs and Rex’s team is regressing.

    Why do we keep making excuses for Sanchez? He is in his 3rd year in this offense. The improvement should be showing now. Granted I will give him that fact he lost two wideouts, but come on! Is Sanchez a bonofide starter or just a good back-up qb? I am not going to put all the blame of this lost on him, they stunk on all 3 phases last night. Let’s see how he does at the end of the season. If he doesn’t play up to standards I personally believe that the Jets should look into trading for Peyton (if he is 100%) for at least 3-4 yrs. Wishful thinking………sighhhhhh. Just not sold Sanchez is the answer, or it could be the OC..I just don’t know. We had a chance to take hold of our division and they let it slip away.

How is it the rookie in cincy who has a rookie reciever he throws to makes the plays when he has to. Jets fans have been waiting for a more consistent Sanchez for 3 season now. I hope McElroy gets a shot next season because this act is getting old fast

    The Jets had control of the AFC East in their hands until the game started. This team has no character, no moral fortitiude, no guts. A quality team wins last night’s game. The Jets barely showed up.

    You guys are missing the point. Another critical loss with really only one person to blame – Sanchez. The Jets played well enough to win even with the defensive miscues (several dropped picks and missed sacks) and special team errors. If Schotty is going to open it up Sanchez has to do his part. In Namath’s third season he was breaking records left and right. Sanchez is an error prone (fumbles, picks) game manager who can’t read defenses. Not a good combo. How does Sanchez not understand clock management? Truth he be told Schotty shares the blame too. A game plan predicated on passing against a defense that is so thin it has no reserves? Ground and pound! Slow the game down! Wear out the defense. Rex, Listen to Namath!

    I think this loss to the Patriots proves one thing. The Jets are never going to win a championship so long as Mark Sanchez is the quarterback. The Colts will wind up with the worst record in the league thie year and probably will draft Andrew Luck with the #1 pick. The Jets should inquire whether Payton Manning if healthy is available. It`s worth a shot.

    Sanchez is a 50/50 QB at best, for every good play 1bad.
    Why not try covering Grabowski with Cromardi ? How about help over the top?
    Why let one guy beat you single handed while he’s rubbing your face in it ?
    Now we need to hope no, pray, that we don’t loose to some one that has 3 wins
    or less ! Lastly, Shotty is the worst !

    The Jets did not lose that game because of bad officiating. There were many factors, but that was not one of them. I have been following this team for 51 years now and the bottom line is they don’t rise to the occasion when it matters most. Excuse me, they did do it ONCE (1/12/1969) Everything pointed to a win last night, the home crowd, the way the Jets have been playing, the way the Pats have been reeling, the fact that the Pats had the #32 D and were missing a few starters to boot, but, it did not happen. 14 points scored, at home against the worse rated D in the league. How? Why?

    I’ve been a Jet’s fan since Bill Parcells and I’ve been suffering for years with the SOJ teams. Ryan said he was going to play ground and pound football with the Patriots like they did in Buffalo. He said he was going to run out the clock and keep Brady off the field and that is the way to win. Well I can’t believe that Mark Sanchez is allowed to throw throw throw and not get first downs like usual. When that first drive went without any points I knew how the game was going to end. With all the talent on this team, to play stupid is to make me stupid to watch. I decided last night I would end the decades of suffering by giving up my fanship of the New York Jets. I am no longer a fan and will never watch another game, ever. GOOD BYE

    Little boy, rookie Sanchez should not be re-signed at the end of his contract I said it before and I will say it again I don’t know how or why he was drafted so high, or why the Jets were so high on him, he should be a backup some where not a starter in the NFL. With all the offensive weapons (except “boy rookie”) the Jets have, the scoring problem can be traced to one source – Shotty, bad offensive coaching, bad offensive play caliing.and, bad preperation. I never liked Folk either always have to hold your breath with him, surprised he got off to such a good start, watch him revert back to form. YOU CANNOT MISS THE CHIP SHOTS – NO ONE WILL BLAME YOU IF YOU MISS A 45 YARDER.I COULD OF HIT THAT.

    I see a lot of people on this blog want to cry about unfair penalties and calls against the Jets… The bottom line is the Jet players and coaching staff were not prepared for this game at all, as evidenced by the defense not even being lined up at times when Brady got the snap. Championship teams step up when big games are on the line, and the Jets I’m sorry to say are not a championship team. They had the opportunity to control their destiny and take the division lead on their home field, and failed miserably. And, against a supposedly weak defensive team missing two starters. If you can’t get up for a game like that and play your best, you deserve to lose. After the last interception on MS, I couldn’t even watch anymore.

    Very sad & pathetic performance last night.Next year’s draft is so critical. we all know what are needs are but does Tannenbaum & Rex? Pass rush is 1st and foremost, ol, stud receiver( with size) and qb maybe in the 3rd or 4th rd. Mcelroy is not the answer he’s to small.Not throwing in the towel just yet. remember last year’s NE butt kicking we took. Stop trying to pass to hands of stone Greene, that’s where Mcknight comes in. Sad to say it but LT is done, I live in San Diego and have always admired the player he “was” and the person he is. Schedule is very soft, but I’m afraid we might have to win no less then 6 to make playoffs.

    I don’t know about going after Manning, but I have to say it’s good to see some people on this site losing some of their previously-cherished illusions, such as: That you can win the SB without an elite QB or an explosive O; that you can rely constantly on the D to bail you out; that Schotty has anything like a stellar record as an OC for this team; and that Sanchez is making so much progress this yr. As long as our QB looks so confused and tentative so much of the time, there should be no talk of our allegedly deficient weapons on O. What would be interesting to see is whether McElroy or someone else can get more consistent results out of the RBs and WRs we have now. Rex is starting to sound just upset enough to give that a shot in 2012.

    Ok let me see…Rex says he developed the formula for beating Brady and the Pats that everyone else had success with but we get swept? Sanchez-Not couldn’t get it done against the Pat’s JV squad. They were about to drag Rodney Harrison out of the booth because they ran out of DB’s. The bottom line is Sanchez absolutely is NOT A GOOD QB. His accuracy is atrocious Holmes walks in with a TD on the first drive if he doesn’t have to make a leaping twisting acrobatic catch. He failed to properly call the line blocking and failing to step up in the pocket leading to some of the sacks, the TO at the half and on and on. Bottom line his mechanics stink! Not getting Cutler a few years ago was a huge mistake I have said ad nauseum the last few years

    64, you were prophetic on your quote “before” the game about the coverage ability of our safeties because that was the worse display of safety coverage that I have ever seen in all the years I have been following the NFL. Of course that was only one of the many meltdowns in this most recent debacle. Funny thing, I was speaking to a friend of mine, who happens to be a Pats fan, and I do believe he summed it up perfectly, he said “stats aside, Mark Sanchez just does not have “IT” Having IT, for a QB may not show up on any stat sheet, but it goes a long way in winning championships.

    If we had lost this game 45-42 or something like that, then maybe there would be some hope, but 16 points against the worst defense in the NFL. I hate to say it but I was praying Sanchez would get hurt, even Brunell at this point would be an upgrade.

    I see some blaming Folk for the missed field goal, cmon, we overcame that and took the lead, but our weak D couldn’t even hold them to a FG to keep it tied at the half. Besides it was Sanchez’s fault we didn’t score a TD on that opening drive. Sanchez got gun shy in that opening drive, didn’t want to throw his reciever open, oh wait, that means you have to be accurate with the ball. If a receiver isn’t wide open Sanchez doesn’t throw it, scared to turn the ball over, that is no way to play.

    I see a lot of frustration on the radar today, and rightfully so. Being a true realist of course I don’t believe in curses, or being snake bitten, and things of that nature. But at some point you have to begin to wonder what is going on with this team. There just has been so many times in big games, such as this one, that this team simply self destructs. So many signs pointed to a big win Sunday night and it just turned out to be “same ol results” This is not the end of the season by any means, it just makes it harder to get to where you want to be, you know, like the past two seasons.

    oh, and for all those that want to hold out hope for this season, you’re just kidding yourself. The Jets have no shot this year. If we win out, we end the year 12-4 and that probably makes a wild card, but 1 more loss and 11-5 will not make the playoffs, we will lose out on tie breakers. All of our losses have been in the AFC. Considering we couldn’t even show up on our home field and couldn’t score on the NFL’s worst defense, I am confident this team will not win out, end of season. See you all next year, hopefully Shotty will be gone too. No Jet team has made the playoffs 3 years in a row, why would that change now?

    Being past the halfway point there are not a whole lot of changes you can make. I think a change is needed at RT and at Safety but those changes are not on this roster. The one change that needs to be made right now is that b/u TE spot where Mulligan just can not get it done. As for our starting TE? Has anyone seen all of those nightmare match ups for opposing defenses that we were led to believe would be the case, because I sure have not.

    As scjoe said, EVERYTHING pointed to a win last night, and yet the Jets came up absolutely and positively empty. EMPTY !! I rate last night as one of the worst disasters in Jet history on every and all levels. There is nothing positive to take away from this disaster and recovery is going to be difficult at best. Not allowing a one dimensional QB (actually he’s got about half a dimension) who can’t pass the football to beat us on Thursday night would, I suppose, be a good start but even if we win this game then what ?

    Sanchez is not mentally tough enough to play consistantly. He is either going to have to wake up, or someone on this team is gonna have shake it put of him ASAP. The moves made in the offseason were “ridiculous” they did “nothing” to make this team better. The safeties are too slow, the LB were eaten up in the middle because they have no pass rush from any of the front three. There is no receiver on the team that scares anyone going deep, so it’s easy to stop the run. The offense is “offensive” they’ve yet to learn to create schemes for Keller who is the best pass catcher on the team. Ryan needs to wake up and get to be a complete coach instead of just a defensive coach. This team will be 9-7 “at best”. STICK A FORK THEY’RE DONE, SEASO OVER

    Watching this game was a huge disappointment. I expected so much better especially with so much on the line. However, call me crazy, I think Sanchez still has potential. He went to a school that practically manufactures football players (I’ll concede he played for a short time but that can no longer be an excuse) and he has the athletism. I believe the problem lies with Schotty, he is a horrible OC. Give Sanchez someone who he can actually work with and effectively coach him and he will pull through. Think about it, Alex Smith on the 49er’s was practically on the verge of being cut because of their horrible season last year. Look at them now, with Hardbaugh their 8-1 and Smith is playing very well. Can’t you see what good coaching gets you?

    After 35 years of disappointment as a Jet fan, I have given up hope of them ever being champions. This team simply does not know how to play like champs. If Sanchez hasn’t learned how to throw accurately by now, he’s a lost cause. And no matter what moves they make, they NEVER have a pass rush; the last time they had a solid pass rush was the New York Sack Exchange in the early 80′s. Sanchez wants to play again? Well, I want to go back to my childhood and pick a REAL team to root for. Mark my words: the Jets will lose, badly, at Denver. They will not make the playoffs and they will be lucky to finish 8-8. They are not that good, and they never have been,

I coached football also in my time and I agree with most of what you are saying but to come down so hard on Sanchez baffles me. He didn’t have a great game but he was the reason we were in the game until the fourth Q. First drive sanchez threw them down the field; he hits Holmes on a dig route; two defenders collide; Holmes should walk into the end zone Instead he gets tackled by the 12 yard line, no one touched him. A run and 2 passes later no one was open (burris was double covered) and folk misses a field goal. That’s not MS fault.

    One more thing, if we had kept Favre and used the Sanchez draft pick for something we need – like a pass rusher – we would have won another Super Bowl by now. Remember, it was our choice to release Favre, we didn’t have to and everyone knew he was going to play again. Maybe we can package Sanchez and a draft pick and trade for Sam Bradford? Or go after Payton Manning if he becomes expendible (and if he can still play)? Hate to say it but MS is just a confused, immature, kid and his prioriies don’t seem to include becoming a better QB. I am so sick of slow starts and stupid mistakes. MS is in his third year! In JWN’s third year he passed for 4,007 yards and in his fourth year he won the SB. MS is simply not maturing as a pro QB! ENOUGH!

    In many pass plays our great recievers couldn’t get open from 3rd srting Def backs. Sanchez got sacked on a blitz to Holmes side’ that’s an easy read for a veteran reciever, run a hot slant route. Instead he runs a 20 yard out and Sanchez has NO ONE to throw to. Carter is a washed up never has been player who no one wanted and gets 4 1/2 sacks; that’s more than anyone on our squad has for the entire season. I counted Two TD’s that Brady should have hit but was off target. I could give 15 more examples of little things in the game that hurt us but to lay this all at Sanchez’s feet is wrong and misguided. I worked 12 hours today and was upset over the game all that time. We lost but everybody had a huge hand in that.

With some of the vets getting older it’s time to rebuild and please start at the QB position. I guess Pete Carroll was correct when he said Sanchez wasn’t ready for the NFL. I guess no one in the Jets organization heard that comment.

    Well, Spicer, good to see you talking more real about Sanchez. The reason I focus so much on him, Rex, and Schotty is ’cause though we have two of the worst cover S in the NFL (right, scjoe), our biggest problems are all on O. I’d fire Schotty as soon as we’re out of the playoffs if we are and try MS next yr with a new OC but as GaryC pts out, O guys are gonna start bailing if this goes on too long. At least as many excuses can be made for Dalton and Newton in this strike yr yet they show a better 4-qtr sense of the game than Sanchez has in all but his best games. Football being the business it is now, ticket holders will start fleeing if something doesn’t change big-time in Sanchez by next yr. Rex sounds like he’s starting to get it.

They have a much better shot at winning, running 40 times a game than waiting for MS to have great game. THEY NEED A PASS RUSHER.

    The receivers CANNOT get open when O-line is giving up sacks or constant pressure. Also the receivers cannot get open if the O.C. draws up plays that take to long to develop! AND most of all when the receivers are open MS is just not seeing them, throwing to a covered or double covered player, or just flat out missing the throws! I want to like him and will root for him as long as he bleeds green, But some of his play is scary!

    Good points superhumanjet BUT MS is the reason we didn’t score on the first drive. MS is the reason the Pats scored with 9 seconds left in the half. MS is the reason he was sacked four times (you have to step up into the pocket… if you roll out you have to be aware of where the pressure is coming from – see Brady for an example)… and he also quite obviously can’t read defenses which doesn’t help. You are right in saying that you can’t blame everything on Sanchez, and there is plenty of blame to go around (Schotty), but the game was there to be won if MS had been up to the task. He’s not a leader, he is still unbelievavly raw, he doesn’t understand the game, and he usually disappears for big chunks of the game. I am a Fan since ’65.

    shotties poor game plan the ball,and what happen to the screen pass.we can win a game 35to3 we can win 9 to 0 we just cant win 38 to 35.dont get it.i believe you play to your strength not the other teams weakness.we are a 35 run and 25 pass team.shotty cant call a game ,he does not keep you off balance .we have to much respect for teams.but even then we gave it up 3 times and let a fumble go and 2 int.1 of the int should have been pick 6.stay strong .GO JETS!!!!!

    caliber teams

    Payton, Drew, Ben, Tom, Aron.

    until the jets get one of there own
    be content with just a good jets team
    not a great one

    when have you ever heard ” the path to the super bowl is through the new york jets.” or ” the jets are the team to beat.”

    This is seriously laughable that some “smart” and “wise” Jet fans are suggesting we trade for peyton manning or sam bradford! that is hilarious and there talking like their pro head coaches and use to play for the NFL. Its things like these that make me think ALL 32 fan bases are just bad. I defend our fan base all the time but when we talk with your behind its hard to defend you guys. Stop bickering and complaning like old woman. Seriously get a grip and move on to the thursday game at the broncos Jet fans or so called jet fans. I would love to see you all try to do the jobs of the coaches and players on this team.Come on people think! And for the record Brett Farve retired and chose not to go to the Jets again, he tore his bicep too.

    Now that my head has stopped from spinning and I’m a little more coherent, I’m able to look beyond our lose Sunday night despite how frustrating and extremely disappointing it was. I’m kind of not too worried. I think if we can win at least 6 of these last 7 games, we can make the post-season once again. CIN has to play BAL 2x, PIT and HOU (hopefully with a health Schaub) those are all potential loses or if BAL just keeps losing, we definitely have a chance. I’m not gonna state the obvious problems anymore, everybody here already knows what they are and we see them almost every week.

    I swear some of you fans a delusional I love the Jets but let’s be realistic, to many inconsistencies for this team to make a serious run plus I the Jets have blown many chances to be seeded #1 and when it matters the most they fail to execute. Either some of you are new fans and haven’t suffered long enough or a very optimistic people. I hope for the best but will not bank on it.

    superhumanjet, though the protection for Sanchez has been bad, 3 yrs in he’s starting to look Clemens-like in terms of pocket presence. As Cimini rightly pointed out, his sense of the pocket was awful Sunday and in some cases he walked right into sacks. By contrast, Brady’s pocket presence is magnificent, as you saw on Sunday. Unless you actually slam him to the ground, he finds open guys and hits them. I’m not saying MS should be anywhere near Brady on this or any other level yet, but let’s not oversimplify. MS is still making very green mistakes and most of the Jet fans I know agree with what Clowney said a few months ago, that they can tick off the plays to come as they watch the game because of Schotty’s bad calls and MS’s weak play.

    Backing you up, jetfan, and again to you, superhumanjet: There was a series in the late 2nd qtr, I think it was, that was like Sanchez’s Greatest Hits of Ineptitude. 1st he threw on the sidelines to Plax, I think, when there was nothing and he was lucky to avoid a pick. Then he threw to the wrong side of Greene short over the middle. (Why we throw short over the middle to SG instead of screens to McKnight, who’s twice as fast, is beyond me.) Then he stared down Plax on a slant so everybody in the park knew he was throwing there, trying to force it in without ever considering another target. This is NOT the way any 3rd-yr backup, much less starter, should play in a single series! And this why Rex is starting to lose his patience with MS…

    Why do you build me up, buttercup? I had super high hopes for this game. In defense of Hunter, Tom, I think Carter was beating our pro-bowl T for those 4.5 sacks. Haven’t watched the tape, but I think Fergy was getting burned by Carter, not Hunter. I don’t expect Sanchez to be elite, but I’ve said it before on here, you can’t turn the ball over! Someone else posted last week that we had to pass first b/c of the weak pass d we were playing. I’m telling you I don’t care if their pass d is ranked 1,000th in the world we are a play-action pass team. We must run the football to set up the pass. 17pts off t/o’s. If Sanchez waits to call the 1st half timeout, maybe 3 pts instead of 7 for the Pats before the half. Coulda won if not for mistakes.

    The sad thing is, I think Schotty would have run it more in the 2nd half if not for the turnovers putting us more than two scores behind. I hope our Jets can bounce back to beat the Broncs Thurs. I don’t know how, but Tebow just continues to win out there. One thing’s for sure, we shouldn’t need half of our team to consist of DBs in this one. Bring the big boys and make Tebow learn the hard way that this is not college football. DL and LBs must be physical. Let’s go get a win and hope for the best. Remember the miracle, guys. Remember the miracle. Anything can happen with 7 games left. Eternally optimistic, jetsfan80. J-E-T-S….JETS!JETS! JETS! By the way, Branch, somebody owes you a hard hit for your antics in the end zone.

    Mike V, Even thou Mark has to get some of the blame for this loss. To say he is the reason the Pats scored right before half time is wrong. The bad D that gave up 30 plus points for the 4 time in 9 games is the reason they scored & if you are refffering to the timeout. In todays New York Post page 78 & 79 it says he was told to take the time out. So that is on Schotty not Mark. Also he was sacked 5 times not 4 times by a team with no pass rush & for you to say that is on him is just wrong how about putting the blame on a bad O line. BE FAIR!

    I agree, Spicer. Both sides of the ball were to blame for this loss. The D did not give up the pick six and couldn’t help the McKnight fumble that led to a field goal, but the other 27 pts are on them. Too many big plays given up to the TE…and what’s up with the 50 yard pass play given up to Chad “Disappearing/Reappearing Act” Ochocinco? Jets need to find an answer to cover TE Gronkowski in the future.

    And for the encore i just heard that today REX ran his mouth about how he can not wait to play the Pats in the playoffs.PLEASE they just came in our stadium and kicked our butts.Concentrate on Denver and try to decide who gives us the best chance to win with all of those fantastic players you have been drafting lately.

    PS in regards to all the scrutiny about Sanchez call ing a time out at the end of the half=(giving Brady 80 seconds to go 80 yards.)REX you CLAIM to have the best defence in football if so you stop the Pats offence instead of FEARING them having the ball.I never saw the 76 Steelers or 2000 Ravens afraid of giving any offence the ball with a minute 20 to go.

    to jetfan1, let’s be real here. I have to be one of the most die-hard Jet fan that there is. For 41years now, i have watched or went to every Jet game played.Even watched them the entire season under Kotite going 1 and 15 .But you can’t tell me Sun. game didn’t make you sick. We as fans, deserved a better showing than that. Totally confused, unorganized, and outplayed. So don’t tell me about REAL Jet fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    jetsfan80, the problem with what you’re saying is the whole problem with Rex, Schotty, and Sanchez right now. Why in the world should we be “a play-action team?” Why should we be “a run-first team?” Why do we keep talking about “ground and pound,” especially when our O line is inconsistent, LT is done as a runner, and we don’t really want to try McKnight and Powell yet? None of this stuff is working well enough to get us into the caliber of teams that harry-o is referring to ’cause we don’t have that kind of QB. Rex will either get hip to this in a yr or so and change course or he’ll be gone himself, leaving it to a new coach to make the changes that are needed to win big. Right now all he’s doing is talking and losing his temper.

    Everybody watched the same thing. The game was there for the taking but Sanchez didn’t take it. Again. Namath, Staubach, Unitas, Marino, Elway, Montana, Favre, Young, Baugh, Starr, Brees, both Manning’s, Warner… all the great ones live for the moment and seize the moment… that is how they became great. This type of game isn’t never easy, usually an uphill battle, but the great ones win them. This was Sanchez’s moment (really his third try at his “moment”) and he stunk it up. Again. He is a 3rd year pro; game clock management, pocket awareness, reading defenses, LEADERSHIP, etc., should be second nature by now. Can you imagine Namath calling that timeout? You give JWN this team at 24 and we are on the way to three SB’s in row.

    Problem is with Sanchez, He can’t throw a tight ball like Brady,Brees,Rivers oh yea Rodgers, if he could they would be Super Bowl bound with all his weapons.
    he just doesn’t have it. End of story.

    Ground and Pound is nothing but an excuse for a team without a QB.In todays NFL (unless you have a DEFENCE loaded with ALL PROS )that doesnt work.It is a quarterback driven league Steelers,Saints ,Pats Colts Packers all win Superbowls ALL have elite QBS for a reason

    Good points ’64 Tom. I’m not saying that a play-action team is what I want us to be, just that it’s who we have been built to be. I just think that they’re going through an identity crisis right now and trying to be something that they are not. Playing the #32 pass defense means squat if you’re not a pass-first team. I agree with you, I think we should move from ground and pound to the type of potent pass offense that has won SBs the last several yrs (i.e. Pack, Saints, Colts, etc.) The last team to win a SB that was true ground and pound with teriffic D was probably the Ravens. That’s been a while ago.

    Problem is potent offence teams have the personal to impliment that type of system(maimly an elite qb and numerious wide outs )the Jets do not.

    joe, jetsfan80, Mike V, and STAY, it’s a pleasure to read your posts. Ground and pound is for the early ’60s NFL, nobody’s won on more than a fluke with it since. And what’s really crazy is that we don’t even have the kind of larger-than-life RBs needed to run the ball that much, guys like Gore, Charles, and yes, Johnson, though I think Greene and McKnight could eventually approach that. This delusion that our current O will ever outscore the teams with the QBs you list looks worthy of entry into the DSM-IV. I agree that Holmes is our only A-list WR right now, joe, though Kerley shows promise to become that too. But what’s obviously mediocre a lot of the time is our QB failing to throw to them from 10 yds away. Until we deal with that…

    Greg McElroy would’ve been fun to watch. Can’t figure out why the Jets didn’t draft some pass rushing or get a REAL pass rusher in free agency. Next year give 3 picks just to get a young, BIG, big fast guy who PUTS THE FEAR into the quarterback. Better than a whole line who can’t. If that’s all the Jets get in the next draft is the number one pass rusher, they’ll be better than this year. A tall strong fast safety would be good and a 6’7′ 280 LB Tight End who can run a 4.6 forty would be nice. Shawn Nelson couldn’t play. They Needed HIM. This game killed my fanship. I don’t want to root for SOJ teams who make so many stupid mistakes. I would rather say “May the best man win” than root for the Jets anymore. Won’t watch another Jets gam

    Exactly i think the book on Sanchez is he cant throw the ball downfield and their loading up on him.All in all i think the Jet braintrust really overvalued the talent on this team (Rex bragging about winning the Superbowl every year is starting to grow old )They are what they are a 9-10 win team (maybe )but cant see them beating the Packers,Steelers,Saints,Ravens

    Ps when Rex says ground and pound that means to me( at least) we dont have the talent,ability to throw the ball .As fan since 64 said that stuff worked in the 60s.Today every superbowl winner i can think of the past 15 years except Baltimoe and Tampa bay has an elite QB .Baltimore and TB had defences with multiple all pros and hall of famers (other than Revis we have no one of that caliber of those teams )
