Today, Mark Sanchez set Twitter and the internet ablaze.  What he did was the talk of the nation – something no one saw coming.  Did he get benched for rookie QB Geno Smith?  Did he rag on the Jets to the media?  Did he finally get released by the Jets?

No.  He wore a headband. Continue reading

The Wartime General: Rex Ryan, Purpose, and Survival

rexchurchill

Winston Churchill is perhaps the most popular leader in British history.  He helped lead them to a victory in World War II.  At home, he helped set up a government coalition to unite and move to achieve great mobilization during the war period.  Churchill was a brilliant war strategist who knew not only how to motivate, but how to go about winning battles he was in, especially when he had the sudden backing and weapon of the United States following the Japanese Pearl Harbor attacks.

So why did this strong and popular leader suddenly lose an election in 1945, just months after one of the biggest victories in the history of mankind – the ending of the Second World War’s phase in Europe?

An Unsocial Contract: The Jets and the People Assigned to Cover Them

rex-presser
Jets fans and the media have come to a disagreement over the past few weeks.  While most of the talk within Jets nation had been Sanchez, Tebow, McElroy, or Bust for most of the time, one thing that has brought together both sides is their dissatisfaction with the people who present Jets news to them.

The major cog in this development has been New York Daily News writer, Manish Mehta.  His calling card over the past two seasons has been an anonymous source within the Jets organization that has leaked him major news of distrust and disorganization.

On December 27, 2012, the Jets finalized the last days of Tebow in New York by declining once again to start him – even after the injury to current starter, Greg McElroy – in favor of embattled former starter, Mark Sanchez.

There will be a lot of articles talking about what a failure this was for the Jets, but let’s look at the Jets mindset on that day in March.

Here, in order, are some of the reasons the Jets traded for Tim Tebow.

Tim Tebow: Not a Savior, Nor a Sanchize Killer, Just Another Bad Jets Decision

He was “excited”.  He was really “excited”.  Everyone was excited.

Governor Chris Christie ecstatically welcomed him to New Jersey.  The Daily News had the Statue of Liberty in his famous stance.  His legion of fans were ready to take New York by storm.

Tim Tebow, coming off a surprise season where he relieved Kyle Orton in Denver and led the Broncos to a playoff overtime victory, was now a Jet.  Woody Johnson and Mike Tannenbaum helped complete the trade – giving Denver a 4th and 6th round pick – and putting the Jets right back in the forefront with the second consecutive sports story to knock the standing Super Bowl Champion Giants off the covers.

Tebowmania was here.

So was the end of the Jets season.  We just didn’t know it yet.

The Sanchize Crashes and Burns – The End of Defending Sanchez

And Possible Future Replacements

sancheztitans
The time to defend Mark Sanchez is over.

There are no more reasons.  There are no more excuses.  There are no more stats.  There are no more playoff victories to look at.

Lack of talent around him no longer matters.

No, Sanchez was tasked with one thing to do: Protect the ball long enough to beat three more bad teams and make the playoffs.  He could not do that.

Buttface or Mild Hope: The Jets and Their Sanchez vs. McElroy Decision

sancheztebowmcelroyWe are essentially a week from marking a new era in Jets history.  Whether or not Greg McElroy gets the ball for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, we have probably seen the end of Mark Sanchez as “The Sanchize”.  Mark Sanchez’s ineffectiveness for most of the 2012 season has sealed his fate as it exists.

The major question at this point is, who will Rex Ryan choose? Continue reading
