Anonymous Jets Player Says 80-90% of Team Want Mark Sanchez Benched
I hate when teammates decide to make anonymous remarks. If you think Mark Sanchez should be benched, own it.
Quotes like these are why the Jets have the problems that they do.
CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman talked with yet another unnamed Jets player who told him this week, “Everyone on the team likes Mark personally, but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance.”
The masked source estimated that 80 to 90 percent of the roster agrees. Naturally, none of the players have gone on record with that sentiment.
Who else are they going to give a chance to? Geno Smith? He’s not ready. If the Jets throw him out there with the collection of receivers they currently have, he will be forever ruined. The Jets best interest is to use this season as a bridge year. Let Sanchez play out the season and Geno learn from the sidelines.
