While the Jets coach was tap-dancing around questions about quarterback Mark Sanchez’s future, he made one declaration that’s hard to argue with.
“We’re acting like he’s dead. Mark Sanchez is not dead,” Ryan said, via Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. “Sanchez is going to be 100 percent healthy, guys. It’s not like his career’s over.”
Well, perhaps not, but every appearance is that his Jets career is with his season-ending shoulder surgery (and the reported blow-up with management that preceded it). The precocious play of rookie Geno Smith and Sanchez’s contract makes is all but certain he’ll be gone by the time he’s well.
