And so it begins…
Maybe Mark Sanchez is channeling David Beckham/every soccer player with long hair? The Jets quarterback spoke to the media with his hair slicked back and wearing a green headband that received lots of attention. He says there’s “a little fire” inside him as he faces the prospect of a tough competition this off-season. (Photo: Rich Schultz/The Associated Press)
“The Sanchez Era is over for the Jets. Whether they cut him tomorrow or next week, over the summer or if he somehow hangs on until after the season, he blew it. He could have owned this town like no Jets quarterback since Joe Namath. Instead, he regressed terribly over the last two years with nearly four times as many turnovers as victories. His confidence was shot by the end of last season as he failed to overcome his penchant for making huge mistakes for a team that set him up to fail by surrounding him with the worst skill-position players in the league and then throwing Tim Tebow into his locker room.”
Former Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff says that Mark Sanchez needs a better supporting cast for the Jets to succeed.
This topic was debated on yesterday’s edition of SNY’s Loudmouths. What do you guys think? Can the Jets win with Mark Sanchez if they upgrade the talent around him?

"I’m just confident in this team. Confident in this coaching staff. I told everyone during OTAs, there’s just a good vibe going around the building. I don’t know what it is, you can’t quite put a finger on it.
"Rex made a great comment to us that at some point during this season everyone in our locker room is going to see we are bleeding green. And we are really playing for each other." - Mark Sanchez, Yahoo! Sports
