The only question is what took so long.
The Jets benched Mark Sanchez for Greg McElroy in the third quarter of Sunday's Week 13 game against the Cardinals.
Sanchez was almost indescribably brutal, going 10-of-21 for 97 yards and three interceptions. He was picked off on 33 percent of his initial nine dropbacks and failed to move the offense thereafter. When Sanchez was pulled with roughly five minutes left in the third, the Jets had zero points. McElroy isn't the long-term answer, but it's comforting to know that the long-delusional Jets are finally seeing the light on "Sanchize": He's not an NFL starter.
Can't wait till the Spin Master puts his two cents in on this. Speaking of garbage. Anyone check Gang Green to see what type of response the benching made over there?
Apparently the roar and general feeling of excitement from home fans when the switch was made were huge.
Let me guess, there's going to be talk that the Jets are still in the playoff hunt? Junc's already said as much b/c they play a "soft" schedule the rest of the year. Look out AFC!
