Jets institute body language fines for Mark Sanchez

Last year, Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez gave us color coded play calls.  Now we have body language fines.

“Today, there was a play in practice when [Sanchez] screwed something up,” offensive coordinator Brian
Schottenheimer said Thursday via Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. “He kind of looked like it was someone else’s
fault. That’s a fine.”

As we saw during Hard Knocks, Sanchez seems to struggle with how to act like a starting quarterback.  Or at least he doesn’t always act with the confidence that his coaches want. 

Sanchez reportedly wanted to start the system.  Backup Mark Brunell collects the money, which probably amounts to a couple bucks for a shoulder shrug or an exasperated eye roll.  As Braylon Edwards informed us, Sanchez isn’t good enough to criticize his receivers yet.

Things would have been even worse if they fined Sanchez as a rookie.

“He’d be broke,” Schottenheimer said. “As much money as he has, he’d be broke with all the body language he had last year.”

Just imagine if the Bears did this on gamedays with Jay Cutler.

    Wow fined for standing the wrong way or looking the wrong way ?
    Sounds like something that violates the CBA and the NFLPA will get right on this since they’re not dealing with important things like the new CBA.

    Don’t let Bankrupt Brunell collect the money…
    By the way, this is gay.

  3. St8_Ca$h_Homey says: Nov 5, 2010 11:01 AM

    How about if they fined Braylon Edwards for ALL his dropped passes.

  4. Uncle Leo says: Nov 5, 2010 11:01 AM

    Manning would be broke

  5. RexRyanHasntSeenHisDinkySince1987 says: Nov 5, 2010 11:02 AM

    WTF? Is there more information missing to the story? Is this something that only happens on the field? Or does he also get fined for typing “lol” into a text message? Does he get fined if he washes his hair before washing his jock after practice? Does he get money from Braylon everytime Sanchez throws a perfect pass, and Edwards catches it with his face mask? Does this violate any rules in the NFL? If it is against the rules to put a “bounty” out on another player, certainly there has to be rules about fining a player because he shrugged his shoulders the wrong way….or wiped his ass sideways or something

    What? You are kidding, right?

  7. Steelerschick43 says: Nov 5, 2010 11:03 AM

    And this is news how?????????????

  8. broncoMaineiac says: Nov 5, 2010 11:03 AM

    Me type gude juan day: “which probably amounts to a couple buck.”

  9. bayou says: Nov 5, 2010 11:03 AM

    Hey Rex, it’s because college and pro’s combined, this is his third year starting. Is the real reason for this extra money is because Rex needs more hoagie cash? HA! Rex Ryan in morbidly obese.

  10. dlmcc0909 says: Nov 5, 2010 11:04 AM

    This is stupid and Braylon Edwards isnt good enough to be criticizing anyone, him and Santonio have plenty of drops. This is a kid barely old enough to drink, of course he is going to have lousy body language at times on the field especially when those two drop passes. Its Sanchez’s idea so let him waste his money. But I have a bigger issue with Braylon Edwards acting like he is Jerry Rice all of a sudden

  11. poodawg says: Nov 5, 2010 11:05 AM

    OK,….. what?
    I thought the NFL fining guys for hard hits was starting to get ridiculous, but this is just crazy.
    So, he’s not good enough to get upset with his receivers, but he is good enough to take them to a Super Bowl?

  12. protectthishouse54 says: Nov 5, 2010 11:06 AM

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Is this real??? what a joke QB, coach and franchise. Is Bart Scott going to have to put a dollar in a jar everytime he curses too? Sanchez sucks… even his team knows it.

  13. damnvarmint says: Nov 5, 2010 11:06 AM

    Roll your eyes, that’s a finin’
    Shrug your shoulders, that’s a finin’
    Shake your head, that’s a finin’
    Do the Peyton Manning aw shucks, oh, you better believe that’s a finin’

  14. pearlbullets says: Nov 5, 2010 11:06 AM

    That is nice of the Jets to let Mark Brunell collect the money. Hopefully this will allow Mark to avoid bankruptcy again.
    /Praise be to God

  15. Jeremy says: Nov 5, 2010 11:11 AM

    Body language? LOL.

  16. Zox says: Nov 5, 2010 11:12 AM

    Not sure if it’s a wise move to give Brunell the money.

  17. FavresWaffleOutlet says: Nov 5, 2010 11:13 AM

    “Just imagine if the Bears did this on gamedays with Jay Cutler….”
    Man, I was thinking just that before I got to the end of the story. Finally….something here that I got a laugh out of….nice work.

  18. lamajet says: Nov 5, 2010 11:14 AM

    I love it. Make every shrug or eye-roll equal a dozen hot dogs for a food bank.
    Institute the same system for every time Wade Phillips looks confused or dumbfounded and there would be no hunger in America.

  19. Joe says: Nov 5, 2010 11:14 AM

    Huh, funny the Rams don’t have to worry about the Body language of Sam Bradford. Maybe that is because he is a Natural Leader, not a player Hyped up by the new york Media!

  20. Champ Kind with Sports says: Nov 5, 2010 11:14 AM

    Could have had Freeman, Jets fans!

  21. SomeFans says: Nov 5, 2010 11:16 AM

    Only the laughable jets could come up with this… yet another bad pick that will haunt them for years!
    Sancheeze is a joke.

  22. Bwa Ha Ha says: Nov 5, 2010 11:18 AM

    McNabb is the King of body language

  23. bjbroderick says: Nov 5, 2010 11:19 AM

    Will he be fined when Suh makes him cry on Sunday?

  24. KaoTiX10 says: Nov 5, 2010 11:24 AM

    “Backup Mark Brunell collects the money” – is he losing it shortly after as well?

  25. MightyMightyLAFootball says: Nov 5, 2010 11:24 AM

    Also, whenever Coach Jaba gets caught jamming another Ho-Ho into his pie hole, Sanchez collects a nickle…
    …so Mark’s covered, no worries there.

  26. marcduke says: Nov 5, 2010 11:27 AM

    Wow, if this is true, what a train wreck of an organization…

  27. nflhof says: Nov 5, 2010 11:28 AM

    Rex Ryans body language says “mmmm donuts”.

  28. Fizz says: Nov 5, 2010 11:28 AM

    Sanchez is sucks. The Jests traded up to get him when they could have drafted Josh Freeman insted.

  29. PED'S ARE GOOD FOR SPORTS says: Nov 5, 2010 11:30 AM

    Who cares. Sanchez sucks anyway. Fastly becoming one of the most over rated players today.

  30. Dan Mateus says: Nov 5, 2010 11:31 AM

    this is why the pats will win the division.
    Rex is a moron.

  31. azlionsfan says: Nov 5, 2010 11:31 AM

    I’m not sure what language Sexy Rexy’s body is speaking but its not pretty.
    Lets see how cocky Sanchez and Sexy Rexy are after Suh goes QB hunting this weekend.

  32. C. says: Nov 5, 2010 11:32 AM

    Fining Sanchez….that’s just Dirty, Very Dirty!

    Yeah that would be crazy.. i mean he has had like um 1 this whole season. What a bum.

    —————————————-
    Really… another for this front office? SO that makes what all of 2? ..IF and its a big IF a second year QB with 1 year of starting in college does not continue to get better.
    Jets have had fantastic drafts under this administration. I know independent thought is hard so I’m certain you probably think the Pats have the best drafts around. Why don’t you take a look at some of their classes..see how many players are en still in league let alone contributing to their team.

    i don’t even know what to say here. it’s like they are trying to give people reason to make fun of them.
    go.big….green?

  37. zleep says: Nov 5, 2010 11:45 AM

    nflhof is right on. Rex Ryan says ‘I’d like to display my lack of discipline to the world in the form of this extravagently-produced corpulent fatty tissue.’ No problem. Sanchez says ‘i want to call out a WR or two with body language (probably because other forms of healthy critique are disallowed) so we can win the whole donut.’ Not allowed. On this one, I would go with Sanchez. Give him the ability to lead, don’t treat him like an 8-yr old.
    You don’t think Peyton Manning does this stuff? He’s the GOAT of blaming without blaming. And it works OK for him and Indi.

  38. bleedgreen422 says: Nov 5, 2010 11:52 AM

    Right a train wreck of an organization…compared to the bears who sold everything for a qb that has done nothing, or the raiders (I think they speak for themselves), i’ll throw the lions of the last decade on that list, the 49ers, minnesota, buffalo (what defense are they going to run this year and with what guy at qb, talk about indecisive…) if dysfunctional organizations is what you’re ranting about the jets have had their mistakes but I think there are other teams in the league that are far worse….
    oh and right mark sanchez is a bust, hence why he’s avoided the sophmore slump, nearly got his team to the superbowl his rookie season and is on pace to have a good season…and when josh freeman was coming out, people weren’t sure what the bucs were going to get but for all you hindsight gm’s posting above, maybe you should extol some of your brilliant insight upon some of the floundering nfl teams, not one of it’s better ones…haters

  39. Citizen Strange says: Nov 5, 2010 11:52 AM

    I think this was just a move by the embarrassed Jets staff to try to cut down on Sanchez’s curious “presenting” behavior.

  40. Stephen Starring says: Nov 5, 2010 11:57 AM

    This is hilarious, they are falling apart. Schotty is the biggest fraud in football behind Mangini!

  41. bspurloc says: Nov 5, 2010 11:58 AM

    Braylon hasnt had a dropping pass issue yet….
    if you watched the last game he was one of the stable ones…..
    santonio was not

  42. Rick says: Nov 5, 2010 11:58 AM

    Brady and Manning would get fined half their pay

  43. wtf__seriously says: Nov 5, 2010 11:59 AM

    Sanchez sucks?? He’s a second year QB. He led his team to win 2 playoff games last year. He was half of a football game away from the Super Bowl. He was the last NFL starting QB this year to throw a pick.
    Yeah, ok. Sure, he sucks.
    That’s just as intelligent as calling Rex fat, but I see you covered that already too.
    Here’s hoping PFT gets some comments from readers OVER the age of 18. It makes for more intelligent reading.

  44. trolling_troll_is_troll says: Nov 5, 2010 12:00 PM

    90% of you are a bunch of mouth breathers.
    This kind of thing happens on nearly every team in the league. The Colts O Line fine themselves every year.
    If it breaks him of some of his visual bad habits, great. Last year at times it looked like someone kicked his puppy.
    The other 10% of you still suck.

  45. MkePackFan says: Nov 5, 2010 12:02 PM

    Methinks, based on some of the comments, people just read the title & posted.
    Sanchez came up with the idea, so what business is it of the NFLPA to question Sanchez’s self-fining idea?

    ===========================
    SomeFans, who do you root for? Are you one of those Miami Dolphin trollers?? Why do you have to trash the Jets on EVERY story printed about the Jets? Just wondering where the jealousy and anger is coming from.

  48. steelerdynasty says: Nov 5, 2010 12:05 PM

    i would officially be ashamed to be a jets fan….if i were one

  49. bringingthewood19 says: Nov 5, 2010 12:17 PM

    Wow, I’m not a Sanchez fan, but the Jets are classless. Way to stand by your young quarterback. Jeez.

  50. koch23jk says: Nov 5, 2010 12:19 PM

    Can’t stand Cutler’s smug look on his face after something doesn’t go his way…dude needs to be punched.

  52. steelersmichele says: Nov 5, 2010 12:25 PM

    This is something that should have stayed within the locker room, but it’s out there now and people are making way too big a deal of it.
    If Sanchez wants to do this to make himself a better QB, there shouldn’t be an issue. It’s like RBs holding onto the ball in training camp and guys trying to knock it out for money. Yeah, maybe Sanchez could spend more time watching tape, but this is something small that he thinks could help him improve.
    It may be corny, but it’s not wrong.

  53. louisianafootballfan says: Nov 5, 2010 12:28 PM

    OK people…the league is not fining him. He is fining himself. If you actually read the article it says that SANCHEZ wanted to do this, thus not making it a violation of the CBA. I can’t stand the Jets and even I can’t come up with some of the crap you people do. With that said, grow up and be a professional. You should have to fine yourself in order to stop rolling your eyes. My momma taught me that in the 2nd grade.
