Rex Ryan Sticking With Mark Sanchez?

Is Rex not even considering a quarterback change?

Rex Ryan indicated in yesterday's postgame press conference that he is not even considering a change at quarterback.

"I believe we can win with Mark and I believe we can win with (Tim) Tebow, but I'm not going to let you or anyone else convince me otherwise," Ryan said after Sunday's 28-7 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. "This is how I feel. It gives us the best opportunity to win games, and that's the only reason I make any move."

Pressed, Ryan became agitated.

"Well, that's what I believe," he said. "It's what I believe to be the truth. Why do I believe it? Because I believe it. I don't care what you think or what anybody else (thinks). I believe it. In my heart, I believe it. I've had (a lot) of years experience coaching football and I put my trust in him."

I wouldn't expect Rex to announce a change right then and there. You cannot make critical decisions in the emotional aftermath of a brutal loss.

With that said, if Rex sticks with his guns and continues to go with Sanchez, there is a very technical term for his mentality, going down with the ship.
