FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Mark Sanchez is keeping his job as the New York Jets' starting quarterback at least for a week.
He has a four-game redemption period to prove that he can still be the franchise quarterback - or show the Jets that they need to look elsewhere next season. With mostly mediocre opposing defenses left on the schedule, Sanchez would appear primed to step up.
Sanchez's coaches and many of his teammates have no doubt he'll prove himself. If he doesn't, starting in Jacksonville on Sunday, it could cost him his job and status as the face of the franchise.
Coach Rex Ryan made the bold choice to stick with Sanchez, and he disagrees with the notion that his future is tied to the success of the quarterback.
