06:53 AM ET 04.29 | For now, it's business as usual -- at least on the surface. Mark Sanchez may no longer be "The Sanchise," but the fifth-year quarterback has no plans to ask the Jets to cut the cord. The Daily News has learned that Sanchez has not requested to be released or traded in the wake of Gang Green???s decision to draft his presumptive replacement, Geno Smith, in the second round on Friday. The Jets have given Sanchez no indication they are attempting to trade him or contemplating releasing him, according to a source. ... New general manager John Idzik reiterated on Friday night after he selected Smith with the No. 39 overall pick that he expects Sanchez to "compete" like the other quarterbacks.

Where else could he even "compete" for a job ?

You know you're a horrible organization if even Mark Sanchez would ask for a trade. I can hear it now. He walks into the GM's office and says, "I don't want to be here anymore. I don't deserve this kind of treatment. I'M MARK FREAKING SANCHEZ!!" I'd probably wet my pants from laughing so hard.

I'm not real sure Sanchez even wants the starting job. He's getting paid and for him that might be enough. I've never seen any fire in this guy and this year will confirm that. If he lets G. Smith win the QB job he's done.

But why should he ask for a trade? If he does that he'd have to work too hard. Don't think Mark likes that work stuff.

He's afraid to.





The mental capacity of a bone.

Forget Geno Smith, Garrard can take his job as well.

Tebow was released this AM, so Sanchez can sit back and collect that check with no worries now.

The Jets have hamstrung themselves with Sanchez - they gave a maringal talent a top-flight contract that most, if not all teams will not pick up in a trade. They may have to either just keep him and see where he falls out on the depth chart or go the same route as Tebow and just release him outright.

I dare him to request for a trade. No other player in the NFL will be scrutinized and bashed as much as Mark Sanchez for requesting a trade. I can't think of another situation where a organization was more loyal and supportive of a QB even though all he did was force them to doubt their decisions. Mark Sanchez was treated better by the Jets then Peyton Manning was by the Colts or Brett Favre by the Packers.

NY made the mistake of crowning this guy from the start. The success (2years) the jets had was primarily off the defense's accomplishments. It never had anything to do with Sanchez. Sprinkle in a couple of hot model dates, endorsements, and pampering him in practice like he's the chosen one, and all the time he sucked.... It wasn't hard for the average fan of football to see, how the Jets couldn't see it is beyond me.

The Registry of Motor Vehicles, but you need "connections" to get the job.

Sanchez might have limited success somewhere else, eventually, but his current situation can't end well...

His current situation can't end soon enough.

Where would he go? Who would want him?

Jacksonville. Short term, he might bring in some fans, but without adding any potential for success. The Sheikh wants to move the team to LA, so continued mediocrity works to his advantage.
