Unnamed Jet: Bench Sanchez

Recommended Posts

It’s good to see that Woody Johnson’s ban on leaks held up so well.

While this one wasn’t the front office variety which was so common before, an unnamed Jets player has already started the Mark Sanchez-ripping which I think we all saw coming.

Come to think of it, Unnamed Jet has been the team’s most consistent performer in recent years.

Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com talked to a Jets player, who didn’t offer his name, who said 80 to 90 percent of the team was ready to see Sanchez replaced as the starting quarterback.

“Everyone on the team likes Mark personally but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance,” the player said.

This comes on the heels of a three-interception practice by Sanchez which coach Rex Ryan deemed “unacceptable.”

This train is only leaving the station, and it’s only going to pick up steam. If not for the horrible contract extension the previous administration gave him, new Jets General Manager John Idzik might have been inclined to start that rebuilding effort with rookie quarterback Geno Smith.

But numbers dictated that they keep Sanchez, and now they’re apparently in for a fun year of back-biting and general mayhem.

There is nobody on the Jets capable of giving such an elegant quote.  Not buying this article.

 

But I agree.  Screw Mark Sanchez.  The guy sucks.

You have to love that this is the only thing from the entire article which is actually coming from this unnamed Jet, while the rest is just more of the same old desperate attempts at sh*t-stirring from the media.  Truth be told, this quote is pretty tame all things considered; about at as tame as you could get given the topic.  I mean, they like him but think that maybe someone else should be given a chance?  You mean exactly like the team is currently doing so with this QB competition?  Oh the horror!

"Maybe it's time to give someone else a chance," is essentially saying the same thing as 'we should probably bring in some competition.' The head coach, owner and GM has repeatedly said the same thing publicly, not sure how this is exactly news-worthy.

This is a total BS article.  Not that the theme of it is wrong, but it is way over blown, and not news

My money is on McElroy as the unnamed Jet.

 

this is already being called a "non-story" by Cimini..  that should tell you something.

My money is on Brick or Stephen Hill. Hill is articulate, but stupid enough to confide in a hack like Freeman.

McElroy is the only dude thats ever put his name on it around these parts.

Definitely offense, definitely not Holmes.

The unnamed player is basically saying that for the past 4 years it was 100% Buttfumble's job. Now, the team feels like someone else, Geno, should be given the real opportunity to start. I completely agree. Nothing replaces game experience. Start Geno in game 1.

Then draft  Teddy in round 1

There is no way the Jets can bench Sanchez this year, he will be but June 1, you cannot bench a player not on your team.

If Geno Smith really can't beat out Sanchez - never one to do well in pre-season himself - then he shouldn't be starting week 1.

 

As much as I can't stand Sanchez, if he wins the job he wins the job.  The chances of him keeping it are pretty slim anyway.

And that my friend, is the silver lining.

Actually the only one mentioning benching Sanchez, in regards to the article, is the OP

what else would one infer from the phrase "give someone else a chance?"

When you title a thread Unnamed Jet:  Bench Sanchez.  It  certainly infers a direct quote.  It's not really close to what was said.

 

I personally would infer "give someone else a chance" to mean exactly what they are doing.

 

Competing

I don't agree.

 

"Give someone else a chance" can be a polite way of saying sit Sanchez down and let someone else be the starter-not necessarily hold a competition to see who wins.

I'm curious why you think it is definitely an offensive player.  If you were a Jet defender, wouldn't you be sick of seeing Sanchez on the field knowing that he was a pick 6 waiting to happen and not likely to lead the offense to many points?

I'm sure its an equal hatred.  I just think the offense has more familiar faces.  Lots of new/younger dudes on D who couldnt formulate such an elegant sentence.

 

Cro?  No way.

 

Harris? He's a mute.

 

Pace?  He's lucky to be here.

 

Wilson?  Nobody talks to him.

 

Therefore, it had to be offense.
