04:09 PM ET 01.22 | The New York Jets are looking at releasing Mark Sanchez and ending the drama-filled era in which he occupied a roster spot for the team. But while the Jets and their fans are tired of having Sanchez under-perform for them, one NFL coach has a different opinion of the former fifth-overall draft pick. An unnamed NFL coach said to the New York Post that Sanchez would be his team's starter the instant he walked through their door. The key phrase there is 'quarterback-needy', as it appears that's the only type of team that would take a chance on Sanchez, given his body of work with the Jets. While it seems like a compliment that a coach would say Sanchez is a starter on his roster, that likely says less about Sanchez and even less about the roster he'd be joining.

the Browns... oh wait, they don't have a coach, so it can't be them...

A Who's Who of backup-worthy QBs.

Maybe they could give Vince Young a shot... he could use the $$$$$

NFL.com says Mike Pettine is a "finalist" for the job.

I guess that's code for "the only guy who hasn't turned us down yet."

This could be many teams including my Jags but I'm happy knowing Bradley isn't that dumb of a coach

January 23, 2014  06:32 AM ET

there's a good reason it's an 'unnamed' coach making the statement.

Definition of being desperate - Sanchez being the best QB on your roster. Trouble is that he's proven what he's capable of and that ain't much!

If the Jets think Thug-Daddy Smith is the answer to their problems, they're crazy.

Actually..I hope they continue to think so. ;-)

Until ,and unless, the NFL gets serious and institutes a drug testing program for Head Coaches, GMs and Owners, this kind of thinking will continue.

I was thinking they would be holding their annual meetings in Colorado.

No, it's not Ryan. Sanchez is already on the Jets.
