His performance in New England showed that he has the stuff to get the job done, but he must now show that over four quarters. Only then will his critics go away, and only Sanchez can shut them up. It remains to be seen if he can do that.
Ryan insisted on Monday that the Jets “go down to win,” and those who think that the team was playing “scared” in a 29-26 defeat are “ridiculous.”
They won’t be favored when they return from a bye week to play at Seattle in Week 10 or when they host the Patriots the following week, but they have an excellent chance of going 8-1 or 7-2 in the final nine games.
One thing is for sure after watching Sunday’s game — make that two things. The Patriots are vulnerable, and the Jets had no business losing that one.
The Jets snatched defeat from the jaws of victory on Sunday — and they managed to do it in as agonizing a fashion as the hardcore and old school fans have ever seen.

Jets tight end Dustin Keller and rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill are active for the team’s game against Indianapolis after missing a few weeks.
If the Jets don’t get to 3-3, it’s going to be hard to stay in the race for a playoff spot. Playoffs? Did I just say playoffs?
Why not go all in? Bring Terrell Owens into the circus. Ryan can wear a ringmaster outfit on the sidelines, something the Jets could market in advance of Halloween. Set up three small rings on the sideline. Owens could ride in on a white horse.
Simply, despite the odds stacked against them this year, the Jets have performed like expected — so far.
Hakeem Nicks remains down, Ramses Barden steps up. Barden goes down, Rueben Randle steps up. It goes like that for the Giants. Not so much for the Jets.
Jets tight end Dustin Keller, wide receiver Stephen Hill, nose tackle Sione Po’uha and fullback John Conner are all doubtful.
The New York Jets are lean, and not in a good way. Excluding Santonio Holmes, who was placed on injured reserve following Week 4 with a Lisfranc injury to his left foot, the Jets have 19 players on their injured list — the most in the NFL.
