Fact is Mark deserves every bit of criticism he gets and he is making millions to do something he isn't doing well. If he actually showed something Id give him credit for sure but he hasn't and tired of hearing the bullshit excuses all the time of why he is screwing up and laying the blame elsewhere even though he has been making the same mistakes for 4 straight years with no progression at all.Oh and any player that has started for 4 full years has had enough of a chance. Especially with the average NFL career being 2-3 years. Id say Mark has had his chance and a 5th year or part of one is just going to upset more and more Jets fans.
If Mark couldn't improve in the 2 years he had with a Superbowl caliber team while the past 3 years we are seeing starting rookie after rookie look really good and improve drastically in one year then if Mark hasn't proven himself by now he absolutely never will and is a lost cause. Its a waste of time starting him even one game. Let Smith have the starting job and if he is good he will probably show it by the end of the year just like so many other rookies after Sanchez has.
I haven't seen anyone here making excuses for Sanchez. All people in this thread have really said is the media likes to focus on the negative. And IF Sanchez were to have a decent practice, that would likely go unreported. Nobody is making excuses for him.
