RYAN SAID MARK SANCHEZ WILL BE JETS’ QB
Wed, 03 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

If Mark Sanchez continues to struggle, his days as the New York Jets’ QB will be numbered.

For now, he has the support of Rex Ryan, who was bombarded with questions as the inevitable Sanchez-Tim Tebow controversy erupted. Football odds

“I think (Sanchez) is definitely our guy,” Ryan related. “I don’t really want to get into the what-ifs, this, that or whatever. I just know in my heart, right now, that this is not the time (to change).”

After half a year of simmering, Sanchez-Tebow has reached a full boil, with Sanchez coming off 3 straight poor performances.

Even New York Jets owner Woody Johnson was questioned about the QB situation.

“It’s a question that’ll be asked more often if this moves on, because this is unacceptable playing,” Johnson said.

Johnson was referring to Sunday’s 34-0 loss to the 49ers, one of the worst offensive performances in Jets history. It marked only the 4th time in team history that the N.Y Jets were shut out with less than 150 yards of total offense.

And Sanchez is hearing it.

Ryan acknowledged Sanchez has to raise his game, but he wasn’t about to bail on his hand-picked franchise QB.

“Do I think Mark has the talent to be an excellent quarterback? I do, absolutely,” Ryan expounded. “We just need to find a technique to get that done. … At this time, I think Mark gives us our best chance to win.”

Jets LB Bart Scott echoed that sentiment, saying it would be a “panic” move to bench Sanchez in favor of Tebow.

“It’s (the media’s) job to push the panic button,” Scott related.” (The media) would change it from week to week. I don’t think we are at this point yet. Mark is our quarterback. We believe in him and the team will rally around him. … You just don’t jump ship after a couple of weeks without playing the type of football you want.”

What makes this debate different from others is that Ryan has the ability to increase Tebow’s role while not having to bench Sanchez, thanks to the Wildcat package. Ryan did not want to get into that discussion, but it’s a possibility.

So far, Tebow hasn’t been on the field for over 3 consecutive plays, but he could get an entire series if the Jets feel that he could provide a spark. That has not happened yet.

In 4 games, Tebow has played in only 32 snaps on offense, including 18 at quarterback. The ballyhooed Wildcat, hyped all summer by Ryan, has flopped. Tebow has rushed 9 times for 38 yards and has attempted only 1 pass, a 9-yard completion.

Ryan conceded the Wildcat has been a disappointment.

“We haven’t been as successful at running the Wildcat as I thought we would,” Ryan said. “I think that’s reasonable to say, but without question, I am not prepared to give up on (Tebow).”

Sanchez, who had 2 turnovers and only 103 passing yards against the San Francisco 49ers , said after the game he isn’t worried about his job security. Tebow said he supports Sanchez, who never had a backup that posed a legitimate threat.
