Somebody tell Rex Ryan to stop talking and start living in reality. The New York Jets will never win a Super Bowl if quarterback Mark Sanchez is under center, in my opinion.


Mark Sanchez

The past two games Sanchez has been terrible to say the least. In Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles, he had a total of 150 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. In last week's game versus the New York Giants, his performance became worse, he racked up 258 yards, but threw for one touchdown and two interceptions.

I don't want to hear the baloney about the competitive and tough defenses he is facing, he has been in the league for three years now, there are no excuses. If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.

If the Jets chose a different direction in going out and retrieving a better quarterback around all that talent, the Jets can potentially be a top team in the AFC, but with Sanchez making the play calls, I don't see it.

Yes, he has tallied 3,267 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, but those interceptions might increase when they meet a tough Miami Dolphins defense.


Matt Moore

I can not give this guy a break. He played like a stud in the first half of the Week 15 loss against the New England Patriots, but in the second, it seemed like he vanished. You could blame the defense for Tom Brady's scoring, but Moore gave away the ball against a sluggish Patriots defense, who are last in the NFL for their pass defense.

Week after week, Moore has been doing just enough to get a victory, but this week I can see him having a big week. Last time these two teams met he did throw for 204 yards and two interceptions.


Keep an eye out on the preview for Sunday's game when the Jets fly into Miami to play the Dolphins on New Year's Day.
