NEW YORK (WFAN) — Despite Mark Sanchez’s disastrous 2012 season, Jets coach Rex Ryan said last month that the former first-round pick is still Gang Green’s main man under center.
“The first snap, he’ll be the guy running out there first,” Ryan said at the time in regard to Sanchez. “But there’s going to be competition at that spot, there’s no question about it. We need to get better at the quarterback position.”
Most of the competition will be courtesy of David Garrard, who is hungry to beat out Sanchez for the starting job. The other quarterbacks on New York’s roster include Greg McElroy, Tim Tebow and Matt Simms.
So can Sanchez, who has struggled mightily each of the last two seasons, regain his form and again become an adequate signal caller?
