The 2013-14 NFL season doesn't start for another three months. But Mark Sanchez is already giving Jets coach Rex Ryan fits. During the Jets' organized team activity yesterday, the Sanchize took 15 snaps and finished just 6-for-11 passing. But that wasn't the worst part.
In addition to only completing 55 percent of his throws, Sanchez also threw three interceptions and reportedly looked as bad as he did last season out on the field. It left Ryan admitting that he was disappointed.
"Yeah, it is," he said. "Absolutely. It's a good thing defense makes the plays, but no, I'd rather him not turn the ball over once. It's funny, because you look at the practice and he did a lot of great things and then those negative things. At the end of the day, that's what gets you beat. And so we've got to do a better job of eliminating those turnovers."
At this point, the best way to do that might be to stick Geno Smith on the field and tell Sanchez to go have a seat. Well, either that, or just call a lot of running plays!
Good luck, Rex. Something tells us it's going to be a looooooong season if we're already talking about all the INTs that Mark Sanchez is throwing in May.
