Mark Sanchez is receiving treatment for his bruised arm and he said on ESPN 1050 that he’s will be playing against Oakland. I guess the controversy is that with the Jets up so much in the fourth quarter, why did Rex leave him in the game so long? My take, he needs to take as many snaps as possible. That play could have happened in the first quarter. I like Mark, but he needs all the experience he can get. Look, if Tony Romo can play with a punctured lung, Mark can play with a bruised arm.
The bigger issue is our line protecting Mark. Can we please get Wayne Hunter to step up. He’s becoming the Vlad Ducasse of the preseason out there.
Per Cimini - Sanchez was drilled early in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 32-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. It became a controversial play because the Jets, comfortably ahead by 26 points, called a third-down pass near the Jacksonville goal line. Afterward, Jets coach Rex Ryan second-guessed himself, saying he made the call only because he wanted to get Plaxico Burress a reception. Burress finished with no catches.
“Feeling good, feeling good,” Sanchez said during his weekly spot on 1050 ESPN Radio. “All systems are go. Our training staff is awesome. They got me feeling great already, so I’m ready to practice.”
