07:57 AM ET 10.22 | Inconsistency continued in the most heartbreaking fashion Sunday for Mark Sanchez as the Jets inched toward a win. [Offensive coordinator] Tony Sparano -- remember his pedigree is as an offensive line coach -- literally took the ball out of Sanchez's hands when he was finally, after all these years, playing like a franchise quarterback. ... Where was the shot into the end zone? Where was the killer instinct? Where was a pass play on first or second down designed to get a first down? Sparano knew [Bill Belichick] had all his timeouts and the two-minute warning. Unless the Jets picked up a first down, they were not going to run out the clock. Remember the Patriots are awful defending the pass. Instead, the Jets took a measly 24 seconds off the clock.

Sanchez actually looked pretty acurate for the most part of the game yesterday, IMO.

And his receivers were pretty open for the most part.

He must be as frustrated with his offense as we are with our defense.

Poor Tony Sparano. Last year, Chad Henne. This year, Mark Sanchez. Sometimes, I think he wears those dark glasses so he can close his eyes and not have to watch.

I think Sanchez looked very good yesterday, I was impressed by his performance.

October 22, 2012  08:51 AM ET

I hear his teammates keep their backs to the wall when he enters the shower facilities...they REALLY don't trust him...

you'd think Romo would have a headache from constantly banging his head into the ceiling he can't get past...

Agreed... For the first time since I've seen him, he actually looked like a QB.

The team isn't all that bad. It's the management and coaching. All the circuses. Sniping from the locker room. Divas. A better coach would field a better team, first of all by having them come together as a team. First step to the next step: get rid of Toe Boy.

Sanchez is the Romo of the AFC. Some games he actually does look good, then others he looks out of place and without a clue.

October 22, 2012  09:34 AM ET

I thought Sanchez looked better than he had in the past. He still doesn't have a great running game and that O line is a bunch of overpriced prima donna's. The coaching sucks to.
I stopped ragging on Sanchez when I realized all of the above. He may be the only rock on this peice of crap team.

Oh yeah those were great calls by Sparano after the kick off fumble recovery......they had as much imagination as z pee wee football coach.....what in the world was Tebow doing in there....not one shot down field into the endzone...nothing...and oh...Sanchez sux...

When a ball thrown by Brady isn't caught, it's the receivers fault. When a ball thrown by Sanchez isn't caught, it's Sanchez's fault. Kinda have to feel bad for the guy.

On some plays. But watching the first half I was glad that he couldn't hit all those wide-open receivers that we let run through our secondary untouched.

October 22, 2012  09:55 AM ET

Maybe if his receivers would have caught the balls thrown to them (yes, I'm talking about you, Stephen Hill), we wouldn't be having this conversation today.

Jets ran for 106 yes yesterday...and thank god they did...because it opened the play action...and that was the reason for his limited success throwing the ball.....they lost that game settling for the FG after the kick off fumble recovery....no killer instinct.....
