Mark Sanchez Named Starting Quarterback for Sunday's Game

Sanchez keeps his job.


The Jets have announced Mark Sanchez will start Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

I guess the best thing I could say about this is I'm disappointed but not surprised. It doesn't matter how poorly you play on this team. If you're one of the favorites, you can't lose your job. If you have a compelling argument for the Jets keeping Sanchez in instead of giving Greg McElroy (or even Tim Tebow) a shot, I'd love to hear it because Sanchez has shown an inability to do basic things an NFL quarterback needs to do in order to succeed.

The definition of insanity is doing things the same way and expecting a different result. I'm not saying Greg McElroy is going to prove to be the solution at quarterback. I'm not even saying he'll be good. He probably won't. But the Jets should find out for sure because Sanchez certainly isn't the solution.

I've said it before. I'll say it again. This is a Mickey Mouse operation.
