Mark Sanchez makes moronic decision to avoid surgery
Mark Sanchez, you’re a moron.
The starting quarterback for the New York Jets the last four seasons, Sanchez has clearly fallen out of favor for the Gang Green. The former USC standout, though, is in denial that his time with the Jets is at an end.
The Jets drafted rookie passer Geno Smith back in April, who appears to be the quarterback of the future in New York. The team took a gamble on him, and seems ready to let him learn on the fly. With their eagerness to get Smith on the field, it’s obvious that Sanchez has become expendable.
In the meantime, Sanchez’ torn labrum in his throwing shoulder – suffered in the third preseason game – has offered him two options. The first is rehabbing as the regular season rolls along and hoping to return in the next month or so while putting surgery off until the end of the season. The other option is having surgery and sitting out the entire 2013 season, effectively ending his career with the Jets.
Recent reports have Sanchez going with the first option, and it makes little sense. Why is Sanchez so eager to return this season instead of having surgery and preparing to play for another franchise in 2014?
No one knows.
By picking option No. 1, Sanchez is basically just putting off surgery and wasting the time he has to recuperate. Barring a serious injury to Smith, the rookie will start every game this season. By returning, Sanchez shows his desperation to be a part of the Jets and delays the inevitable.
If he chose option No. 2 instead, Sanchez would have plenty of time to get healthy and could enter 2014 free agency with a better image and healthier shoulder. Having the entire season to let the shoulder get back to full strength following surgery would be his best bet, especially if he plans to be taken seriously once free agency opens. He could also go out as a starter instead of spending the 2013 season holding a clipboard for Smith.
The decision seems pretty clear. Unfortunately for Sanchez, the hit that injured his shoulder seems to have him stuck in a haze.
I don’t know what you’re trying to prove Sanchez, but you’re wasting your time. Either way, you’re done with the Jets. Get over it.
