FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Despite being mired in one of the worst slumps of his four-year career, Mark Sanchez still has a firm hold on the New York Jets' starting quarterback job.
Rex Ryan remains committed to Sanchez as his team's leader - while popular backup Tim Tebow is still just a part-time contributor who many think should be given a chance at rescuing the Jets' season.
Owner Woody Johnson says Thursday that he doesn't just ``view'' Sanchez as the franchise quarterback, ``he is our franchise quarterback.'' That support comes even as Sanchez is ranked near the bottom of the league in several passing categories.
Sanchez says the Jets have enough talent, but ``now it's a matter of executing.'' The Jets (3-6) play the Rams (3-5-1) at St. Louis on Sunday.
