Mark Sanchez Seems Determined More Than Ever to Keep Starting Job With New York Jets

The New York Jets have one of the most interesting situations at quarterback heading into the 2013 season as they have five players–yes five–that they claim are capable of winning the starting job next season. However, at this point, the starting job seems like it’s Mark Sanchez‘s to lose and if you ask him–he’s going to do whatever it takes to stay that way.

Sanchez made it clear to reporters this week that he’s going to do whatever it takes to make sure he’s still the Jets starter for the 2013 season. Over his first four seasons, Sanchez has shown potential at times, but he’s arguably one of the most inconsistent quarterbacks in the NFL and it’s shown at numerous times.

In fact, over the last two seasons, Sanchez’s inconsistency has put his job in question at times–which is why he’s in the current position that he’s in with the Jets and the other four quarterbacks on the roster.

If New York was confident in Sanchez moving forward, they wouldn’t have selected Geno Smith in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Sanchez claims that he’s determined more than ever to prove he deserves the starting job for the Jets, but where was this type of motivation the previous four years?

Sanchez has received every opportunity in the world to prove himself and if he hasn’t been able to make it by now–it seems unlikely he’ll find success during the 2013 season with the type of offense they have.
