NY Jets Report Card Week 7

Week 7: New York Jets @ New England Patriots Quarterback: C- Mark Sanchez: 28/41, 328 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 1 fumble A difficult performance to evaluate. There was much to like about Sanchez' performance: he made several big plays and by and large, he was quite accurate. The safety was not his fault. What [...]

New York Jets Report Card: Week 6

New York Jets Report Card - Week 6: Colts @ Jets Quarterbacks: B- Sanchez: 11/18, 82 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT Sanchez can still improve his efficiency, but this is a step in the right direction.

New York Jets Week 5 Report Card

Week 5: Houston Texans @ NY Jets Quarterbacks: D Sanchez: 14/31, 230 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT Sanchez look decent, at times. However, he made numerous mistakes -  including missing the mark on a crucial pass to Cromartie and getting numerous passes batted down at the line. In the end, he posted yet another game [...]

New York Jets Week 3 Report Card

Week 3: New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins Quarterback: D+ Sanchez: 21/45, 306 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT Sanchez' receivers could certainly do him some favors. They could, for example, pay attention. Or run routes. Or not have hands made of bricks. That said, this is Mark's 4th year and, as such, it's time for [...]

New York Jets Week 2 Report Card

New York Jets Week 2 Report Card: Jets @ Steelers Quarterbacks: F Sanchez: 10/27, 138, 1 TD Tebow: 1 rush , 22 yards Sanchez marched the Jets down the field for a touchdown on their first possession. When was the last time that happened? This was a different kind of "terrible game" for Mark, as [...]

New York Jets Week 1 Report Card

Week 1: Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets 9/9/12 During the pre-season, we heard it all: the Jets have 2 starting quarterbacks and neither of them can throw the ball. One of those quarterbacks is a fullback. We heard that Mark Sanchez can't lead this team, Tim Tebow can't lead this team and, at times, [...]

In Defense of the Tebow Trade

I was as shocked as anyone to hear that the Jets were in the running for Tim Tebow. Although it was being reported, no part of me believed that they would actually pull the trigger. Now that it's done, I'm equally surprised by the scrutiny that this trade has caused. The detractors include the entire [...]
