Mike Donnelly examines the New York Jets offense surrounding the quarterback position
With the first round of Jets OTA’s in the books, the debate on who should be the starting QB come week 1 against Tampa Bay is really heating up. The fanbase is as down on Mark Sanchez as ever, and the vitriol directed towards him has reached monumental proportions. Yes, I am aware of the reasons for this, and whether it is a fumble, an interception, a headband, another interception, a silly quote, or a buttfumble, Sanchez has clearly brought most of this on himself. But while everyone was tracking each and ever pass each quarterback threw during OTA’s and coming up with a snarky joke or hateful comment about one of the passers as quickly as possible, I was focused more on who was on the field with the quarterbacks.

Connor Rogers explores if New York Jets tight end Hayden Smith have a break out season

Mays has the whole NFL to work with, we only have the Goddamn Jets…now there is a challenge, step your game up Mays!

Cole Patterson on the New York Jets issues at tight end and what free agent options are still out there
Ahhhh the rebuilding year. Another failed campaign means an eager fan base calling for heads and demanding a quick and timely rebuild. There are many pillars to a successful rebuild: management, coaching, and the all important on field talent (to name a few). It is the talent that most fans tend to harp on and at no position on the New York Jets’ roster is there less of it than at tight end. New general manager John Idzik has deftly filled many perceived holes on the roster including: quarterback, running back, and offensive line. He’s brought in depth players at linebacker and fostered competition with talented defenders early in the draft. However, tight end is one of the spots that he seems to have neglected.

Daniel Marcus explores New York Jets fans hatred of Mark Sanchez
Turn On The Jets is happy to welcome our newest writer Daniel Marcus. Make sure to give him a follow on Twitter.
Jets fans, it’s time to have a talk, a heart-to-heart so to speak. It occurred to me the other day that there has not been a New York Jet in recent memory that sparks such (in my opinion) undue animosity than beleaguered soon-to-be former Starting Quarterback, Mark Sanchez. I can understand why you would want to see him quartered and hung for the mind-boggling decisions he often makes on the field but there have been litany of terrible Jets QB’s in the past that have not received anything that resembles the treatment Sanchez has experienced during his tenure as the Jets signal-caller.
