Needless to say Coach Ryan wasn’t to thrilled about his team’s performance on Sunday against the 49ers.
The loss of Revis no doubt left the Jets reeling, but even with the loss of their best player it can’t explain why Sanchez wen’t 13 of 29 for a pathetic 103 yards yesterday…at home. The Jets failed to put up a single point–not a field goal, a safety, a pick 6…nothing. So if the theory of something always being better than nothing rings true than the Jets would be remiss to not at least give Tebow a try. Intangible value may prove to be a spark, as Jets fans will feel motivated to root for the ‘almighty’ Tebow to come save their season.
“We got our ass kicked… Here’s the recipe for getting your ass kicked, 2 for 13 on 3rd downs (that’s 15%), four turnovers, a blocked punt when they only rush 1 guy, and giving up 245yds rushing. Hows that for a recipe.”
Later Ryan went on to say: “I think Mark Sanchez is the answer…again time will tell…” not exactly the most resounding of proclamations one can make. So Rex Ryan telling us that if Sanchez keeps performing like…well…Sanchez, that he will strongly consider demoting him for Tebow? There’s been no indication of how productive Tebow will be as he’s been seen about the same number of times as Big Foot stomping through the wilderness. So it’s safe to say that inserting Tebow for Sanchez would be a gamble, but is it one the Jets are just going to have to take?
The experiment of Tebow could see miracles as was the case for the 2011 Broncos season, or it could play out like a scene from Frankenstein and go terribly wrong. But at this point, even with the financial commitment to Sanchez if he keeps putting up lousy numbers he’s a liability. But there is the bigger picture in the matter and that’s the plain old fact the the Jets offense for lack of a better word…stinks. So is Sanchez just the victim of scapegoating or does he really need to be replaced? The Jets have some decisions to make.
Santonio Holmes has already been ruled out for Week 5. Ryan confirmed that x-rays came back negative but they don’t have a firm diagnosis. He ruled out damage to the Achilles’ tendon before adding “it’s hard to say” if Holmes has a Lisfranc injury. It is a “multi-week” injury and Holmes will be seeing a foot specialist.
