Could Sanchez ruin the Jets Season?

Pro Football Weekly says that if there’s one player that could spoil the Jets season, it would be QB Mark Sanchez.

Jets QB Mark Sanchez’s preseason proved that he hasn’t yet taken that next step from game manager to game winner. The stats – 64.6 percent completions, two touchdowns, two interceptions, five sacks taken – say that Sanchez still isn’t sure where to go with the ball but physically, the 6-2, 225-pound QB can make every throw in the book, he just hasn’t been able to do it quite yet.

Head Coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer have said publicly that they aren’t worried about Sanchez’s development but they have to say that, and Ryan can’t pound his chest that the Jets will win the Super Bowl if he also is discussing QB problems but New York will know right away, after games against tough defenses from Baltimore, New England and Miami the first three weeks of the season, if the second-year player is up to the challenge.

Top receiving target Santonio Holmes will be suspended for all of those contests, and it will be up to Sanchez, the Jets’ running game and the team’s other receivers to pick up the slack. Of course, with every story comes a plot twist and maybe the “Hard Knocks” cameras won’t follow the Jets’ entourage to South Beach to talk to Revis, and maybe Sanchez will prove to be a championship quarterback but based on what has developed so far on both the show and the field, neither of those twists seems likely.
