New York Jets Predictions: 7 Possible Replacements for Mark Sanchez in 2013

Let's flash back to draft day 2009.

When the trade was announced that the New York Jets would move up and make Mark Sanchez their franchise quarterback, Radio City Music Hall exploded with emotion. Excitement, cheer, and the classic "J-E-T-S, Jets Jets Jets!" chants shook the building to it's very core. You could just feel the energy coursing through the veins of each and every Gang Green fan on that faithful day.

This young USC Quarterback, with only 16 collegiate starts to his name, was being anointed the savior. Forget his accuracy issues and lack of college experience—on draft day 2009, the New York Jets staff and fans got their man, and nothing was going to stop them from celebrating.

Oh how times have changed. All of that draft day praise, the back-to-back AFC championship games and the raw emotion that Mark Sanchez carried with him onto the field each and every Sunday is now a distant memory.

Four years later, Jets fans aren't celebrating anymore. The former 5th overall pick in the draft, now reportedly will be shopped around this offseason, thereby ending his brief career in a New York uniform.

With no Sanchez under center, that raises the question, who will be the starting quarterback of the New York Jets in 2013?
