FLORHAM PARK, N. Ray Rice Elite Jersey .J. —Mark Sanchez
spent a few days after his miserable performance wondering what was next. The
New York Jets quarterback had been benched, his coach tired of his mistakes, and
there was no guarantee Rex Ryan would give him his job back anytime soon. “I
knew at some point before I died, Id start at quarterback again,” Sanchez said
Wednesday. “Im glad its this week.” Ryan gathered his three quarterbacks
Wednesday morning and told them he made up his mind: Hes sticking with Sanchez.
For this week, at least. Ryan weighed his options after pulling Sanchez for
Greg McElroy last Sunday against Arizona, talking to many people within the
organization before settling on his quarterback. “I have to get this decision
right,” Ryan said, “and I believe I have.” So it will be Sanchez and not McElroy
or Tim Tebow on Sunday when the Jets take on the Jaguars in Jacksonville. “Im
pleased with coachs decision,” Sanchez said. “Now its my job to go make him
right.” Sanchez was removed late in the third quarter against Arizona, and
McElroy came in and led the Jets to the only touchdown of the game on his first
NFL drive, helping New York to a 7-6 victory. Sanchez was 10 of 21 for 97 and
three interceptions, while McElroy was 5 of 7 for 29 yards and the score, and
appeared to spark the team. Including, the Jets hope, Sanchez. “When I looked at
everything, the biggest thing I kept coming back to is, who gives us the best
opportunity to win?” Ryan said. “When I kept coming back to that, I believe the
correct answer was Mark Sanchez.” It was perhaps the biggest call in Ryans
nearly four years as coach, considering the sensitivity of the situation and the
possible ramifications. He acknowledged there were differing opinions among
those he spoke to, but said he received no pressure from owner Woody Johnson and
added that Johnson was “absolutely” OK with the decision. “From the day Mr.
Johnson hired me,” Ryan said, “he said its 100 per cent my decision who plays.”
Sanchez, whose confidence was shaken with Sundays performance, gets a chance to
bounce back from the first benching of his NFL career and to regain the trust of
his teammates. He has struggled recently, with two touchdowns and five
interceptions in his last four games. “It was probably the worst and best
experience of my life,” Sanchez said. “Hopefully, you learn from it and move on
and never look back. It was definitely was the worst, but it could turn around
and be one of the best things thats ever happened.” He said he had never been
benched, except for maybe on his fifth-grade basketball team. “I think (Ryan)
was, more or less, sending a message and its well-received,” Sanchez said. “I
know. I got it.” Hell likely be on a short leash against Jacksonville—with
Tebow the No. 2 if healthy, and McElroy also ready to go—but Ryan
acknowledged it might not be a quick hook if he struggles. Ryan also referenced
the teams colour-coded system which determined how much risk Sanchez can take
with each pass, saying the quarterback is now back in the “red light” area—
meaning he must be extremely cautious. “If he throws one interception, it doesnt
mean hes going to get benched, necessarily,” Ryan said. Its still uncertain if
Tebow will be active against his hometown Jaguars while he recovers from two
broken ribs. Despite being medically cleared by team doctors to play, Ryan chose
to keep him active but not play against New England on Thanksgiving night, and
then made him inactive against Arizona. If Ryan went with McElroy, a
seventh-round pick in 2011 out of Alabama, it would have been a clear indication
the franchise is moving on from Sanchez. “Im just disappointed because I let a
lot of people down,” Sanchez said. “You let a lot of teammates down when you
play like that. That never feels good. It just doesnt, not the way I prepare,
not with the skill set Ive been blessed to have.” Money might have played a role
in the decision, too, with Sanchez owed $8.25 million next year in guarantees.
But Ryan adamantly denied that factored into things. “Absolutely zero,” he said
without hesitating. Still, the Jets are likely stuck with Sanchez and his
contract, so they need to see if he can rebound after the lowest point of his
career. “I believe in Mark,” Ryan said. It didnt appear Tebow was much of a
factor in Ryans decision. Ryan said all three quarterbacks would be in the mix,
but didnt speculate whether he would have pulled Sanchez in favour of Tebow last
Sunday if he were active. “Im not too worried about it,” Tebow said. “Just
trying to get better and trying to heal up.” Tebow was expected to have a major
role in the offence, but instead has been a spare part averaging about seven
offensive snaps per game. He has been listed as the No. 2 quarterback on the
depth chart, but if the Jets turned to McElroy, it would have meant the No. 3
guy leapfrogged Tebow to start for the Jets. McElroy said he has had a “normal”
week so far, taking his usual number of snaps along with practicing with the
scout team. “Youre not guaranteed anything, not at all,” McElroy said. “You do
your best to make the most of your opportunity and do your best to help the
team.” The fact the next two games are on the road should also help Sanchez. He
was booed mercilessly by the MetLife Stadium crowd last Sunday, particularly
after each interception, and chants for McElroy were heard throughout the game.
McElroy was cheered as he warmed up late in the third quarter, and there was
growing sentiment among some fans and media that he earned a start after lifting
the team. “This is my opinion,” Ryan said, “and I believe that sometimes you
dont need to sit a guy for X amount of games.” Now, Ryan has sent the message to
Sanchez: perform or else. And Sanchez gets another shot to save his job this
season—and his status as the Jets franchise quarterback. “This kind of thing
affects peoples lives and careers,” Sanchez said. “Its not just, Oh, man.
Bummer. Its not like that. This is serious.” Ravens Super Bowl Black Jerseys . Hes

is resurrecting a heavyweight division, and theres bigger way to do it than by
signing world-ranked and Canadas top big man Tim “The Thrashing Machine” Hague.
Hague (13-5) has agreed to a multi-fight, exclusive deal with the Maximum
Fighting Championship that will launch with a bout in the semi-main event of MFC
34: Brute Force on Friday, August 10 in his home town of Edmonton, Alberta. “Im
really excited about signing with the MFC,” said Hague. “Theres no question that
the MFC is the leader in Canadian mixed martial arts, and it has a great knack
for getting big attention for its events and its fighters. Thats one thing in my
career that has been lacking wherever Ive been before. “And the production
values of the MFC shows are second only to the UFC, and Im very excited to be a
part of that.” Hague has won three of his last four fights, and boasts seven
career victories by way of knockout with four wins coming via submission. Of his
13 win, seven have come inside the first round including his most celebrated win
to date – a first-round tapout via guillotine choke against Pat Barry. With
verdicts over Travis Wiuff, Sherman Pendergarst, and Ruben Villareal on his
resume, Hague is a great fit to restart the MFCs heavyweight ranks. “This is a
great match – were eager to bring in new talent with great pedigrees, and Tim
wants to fight on the biggest stage possible,” said MFC Owner/President Mark
Pavelich. “Its true that Tim and I have had our differences in the past, but
that has all been pushed aside in order for us too work together. Maake Kemoeatu Jersey. Tim is excited to be a
big part of the MFC, and Im very pleased to have him on board.”Hague, a former
elementary school teacher, plans on making something big happen at this stage in
his career, and the 28-year-old is evolving his strategy to move forward. “Ive
realized that Im not a kickboxer, but Im a boxer with decent jiu-jitsu,” he
explained. “It doesnt bother me to fight a kickboxer because Im going to push
forward and connect with my hands. “Im not going to look for the takedown. Id
rather stand and let my hands go and make it an exciting fight for the fans.”
Perhaps the most important decision Hague has made of late is to re-unite with
highly regarded strength and conditioning coach Shara Vigeant. “When Im in great
shape, Im a nightmare for anybody,” touted Hague. “If Id have been in better
shape Im confident I would have won the fights against Chris Tuchscherer and
Joey Beltran. But Ive learned that I have to be true to myself, listen to
myself, and being with Shara is the best thing for that.” So MFC fans will be
the first to get a glimpse at perhaps the best Tim Hague theres ever been. “Im
very excited about this opportunity and to fight in Edmonton again in front of
new fans in the MFC and all my current fans is really great,” added Hague. “My
suggestion is when they come to catch me fight, dont blink because the fight
could end at any second.” The Maximum Fighting Championship dropped its
heavyweight division in 2009, and had one former champion in Scott “Punk Haole”
