Pissed that he got snaps in that situation and got hurt in the process, on a late hit to boot, yeah, I see his point. A lot of ppl were wondering why Sanchez went in just then...shoulda left Geno to finish. It was a f*** all game anyway. Sometimes Rex's emotions carry him to strange places. In any event, at times life hands you a shit sandwich. Mark got handed one, except that the bread is stuffed with millions and millions of dollars. Sux to be him. If he rehabs OK and still has it in him to be an NFL quarterback then he will land with another team. If he was a never-to-be in the first place, then take the money, invest it wisely, and you can still have a wonderful life. It is what it is. Mark was on his way out here anyway. It was a magic carpet ride for him for the first few years but, how the mighty have fallen. Never woulda thunk his time in New York would've ended up as sour as this. But life is weird and these things do happen. How much would a golden handshake cost the team anyway? I dunno...I'm not up on this cap stuff.

Of course he was pissed. Who wouldn't be?
Who gives a crap if he is pissed? I sure dont.
If Mark,the fans, or media is pissed at anyone for Mark being on the field at that point they should all be pissed at Mark. Yes Mark pissed at Mark.
I guess it isn't Mark`s fault that he was one of the worst qbs in the league leading the league in turnovers in the four year span and having the lowest qbr in that span and being near the top of the league in most of the bad categories??
If Mark would have handled his business to begin with he wouldn't have ever been in a position to be out in the 4th quarter to begin with. 4 years of handcuffing the offense and not even being able to handle it as a game manager in a very dumbed down offense. Not even able to complete an accurate 6 yard pass.
Any fans or the media that says different is stupid.
There are plenty of long time veteran qbs in the league that used to be starters that are 2nd,3rd string or 4th string trying to make a team because they cant make it as a starter anymore or couldn't make it has a starter at all. Someone has to play in the game. You would never see an established qb that has shown he is the hands down starting qb playing then.
The media are a bunch of morons. I couldn't believe it when more than once they had the sheer stupidity to say Brady, P Manning, or Brees would never have been playing then. I was like wtf?!?!?! It was like they were trying to compare a failed qb in Mark to one of the greats in the league. Of course the greats wouldn't have been out there. You cant even put a sh*t qb in the same sentence as one of the elite. Mark had 4 years to prove himself and didn't so that is why he was out there. You dont or shouldn't get the starting job by default with sh*t play just because you were the starter the year before.
The Jets dont owe Mark the starting job. Its his job to prove he deserved it and he didn't so he should be mad at himself and no one else.
If anything Mark should be happy for the money has made for his 4 years of sh*t and the fact that he got a free ride this year because of Tanny`s stupidity with the big undeserved contract he gave Mark. Injury or not without that contract handcuffing the Jets Mark would have been cut before the preseason or traded for a container of fishing worms.
