Mark Sanchez is Jets’ Starting QB “This Week,” Coach Says
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan says Mark Sanchez is the team’s starting quarterback “this week” — and wouldn’t make a long-term commitment.
Ryan has been asked about his quarterback situation several times during the last few weeks, and has insisted that no switch to Tim Tebow is coming. When he was pressed Wednesday about his qualifier, Ryan got slightly testy saying: “What do you want me to say? He’s our starter. He’s our starter this week.”
The comments come hours after owner Woody Johnson told CNBC that Tebow will “be with us for three years.”
Sanchez says he’s not fearful of losing his job, and Tebow says he’s happy with any opportunities he gets.
But the solution could be simple: Keep both on the field at the same time.
