Unnamed Jet goes to town on Mark Sanchez

Jets QBs Football AP

It’s good to see that Woody Johnson’s ban on leaks held up so well.

While this one wasn’t the front office variety which was so common before, an unnamed Jets player has already started the Mark Sanchez-ripping which I think we all saw coming.

Come to think of it, Unnamed Jet has been the team’s most consistent performer in recent years.

Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com talked to a Jets player, who didn’t offer his name, who said 80 to 90 percent of the team was ready to see Sanchez replaced as the starting quarterback.

“Everyone on the team likes Mark personally but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance,” the player said.

This comes on the heels of a three-interception practice by Sanchez which coach Rex Ryan deemed “unacceptable.”

This train is only leaving the station, and it’s only going to pick up steam. If not for the horrible contract extension the previous administration gave him, new Jets General Manager John Idzik might have been inclined to start that rebuilding effort with rookie quarterback Geno Smith.

But numbers dictated that they keep Sanchez, and now they’re apparently in for a fun year of back-biting and general mayhem.

    Gutless coward.

    What a coward. Put your name on that

  3. mikejsmith32 says: May 23, 2013 1:51 PM

    Unnamed Jets source = Geno Smith?

  4. toledoohoh says: May 23, 2013 1:51 PM

    Has Mike Freeman ever had an unanonymous source?

  5. jwilliamsspf says: May 23, 2013 1:53 PM

    Man up and put your name on a comment for once. The Jets are a team of cowards.

  6. kd75 says: May 23, 2013 1:53 PM

    Its the Jets…They have so many unnamed sources in Florham Park, they just should put “Unnamed” on the back of all their jerseys…

    We want Sanchez to be the starter for years.

    Unnamed sources sure do talk a lot. Like a lot of my exes unnamed friends,

  11. bender4700 says: May 23, 2013 1:54 PM

    Put your name on it or shut up.

    Sick of anonymous sources and comments. If its anonymous then it means nothing. Not brave enough to put your name then you’re just trying to talk smack.

    Childish.

  15. dustn36 says: May 23, 2013 1:57 PM

    Does this really surprise anyone that an unnamed Jet decided to rip someone? It would be news if the player would attach his name to it. Jets are a joke.

  16. hermanbates says: May 23, 2013 1:57 PM

    My guess is Geno starts. Rex and co. can ride the “we started a rookie,” claim, and with a couple good performances, could eek another season out of it. With Geno at the helm, the coaching staff gets 2 seasons at least. By starting Sanchez, the front office could justify axing the entire coaching staff after this season.

  17. longbino says: May 23, 2013 1:58 PM

    At least the Jets will keep my Bills out of the AFC East cellar this year and their QB mess will keep the press off the Bills mess with Kolb and Manuel !

  18. succulentnipples says: May 23, 2013 1:58 PM

    Is Mark growing a ponytail?

  19. classyjacklambert says: May 23, 2013 1:58 PM

    That is the most gentle ripping I have ever seen.

  20. styx630 says: May 23, 2013 1:58 PM

    I don’t disagree with anything said, but if you’re not willing to put your name on it, keep your mouth shut.

  21. roybiggins says: May 23, 2013 1:59 PM

    I’ll just have to assume that Mike Freeman said that. Every player in the league has a name, so this one obviously doesn’t exist.

  22. slickdemetrius says: May 23, 2013 2:00 PM

    That settles it. Unnamed Jet is going to be stitched onto my Jets jersey for next season. And he better be good.

    What a wierd name that player has on the team…what was their mother thinking naming their child “Unnamed Source”

  26. truthplainandsimple says: May 23, 2013 2:01 PM

    THAT’s “going to town”?? Saying what you’d think most Jets players thought anyway?? If I’ve seen him play and think he sucks, I know his teammates probably realize that by now. The entire country thinks he should be replaced.

  27. johndont says: May 23, 2013 2:01 PM

    I glad Tim Tebow is back with the Jets, now I can sleep at night and re-new my season ticket.

  28. captainwisdom8888 says: May 23, 2013 2:01 PM

    Sanchez was never cut out for a city like NY, and I’m surprised he’s lasted this long to be honest. I would tell him and Rex Ryan to kick rocks..

    So this unnamed coward can’t tell us if it’s 80 percent or 90 percent? Is he just an idiot when it comes to math, or did he not really take a roll call and is just making stuff up?

  35. joedirte says: May 23, 2013 2:03 PM

    Lets contract the Jets so we dont have to hear about them anymore.

  36. ninerfan81 says: May 23, 2013 2:03 PM

    If you can’t put your name by something shut the hell up…I honestly feel like the media shouldnt even print it if it can’t be substantiated or a name put on it.

  37. winkeroni says: May 23, 2013 2:04 PM

    I’m not so sure that an unnamed source equates to being a reliable source. An unnamed source will tell you anything you want to hear.

  38. mvp43 says: May 23, 2013 2:05 PM

    Hey, Sanchez was on the cover of GQ…. give him a break.

  39. jayniner says: May 23, 2013 2:05 PM

    Yup, the train is full….

  40. johosophat says: May 23, 2013 2:05 PM

    That didn’t quite seem like going to town on Sanchez, just that he would prefer to see someone else get a shot.

  41. johnnyb216 says: May 23, 2013 2:05 PM

  42. adoombray says: May 23, 2013 2:05 PM

    /Conspiracy Keanu:

    Maybe the unnamed source isn’t even real, and the press is just making stuff up because Jets get clicks because we all argue about it

    and thats why you name your sources or you don’t report it, it’s called journalism, try it sometime

    “Everyone on the team likes Mark personally but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance,” the player said.

    This is going to town on someone? Mr. Gantt must not have had any brothers growing up…

    I love all the internet indignation about anonymous sources, coming from anonymous commenters who say anything they want whenever they want.

    “Everyone on the team likes Mark personally but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance,” the player said.

    Sounds pretty reasonable at this point.

    I don’t condone anonymous player comments (if its even true) but given what is quoted we are really going to label that “going to town on..” ?? Really??

    And for all the Jets fans that are Sanchize (remember that) haters, as a Patriots fan I give you Jim Plunkett,run out of New England and went on to win two SB’s for the Raiders.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    What, the locker room that Rex created with his own big mouth ? And by allowing anyone who wanted to to shoot their mouths off as well ?

    Rex built this house of cards. He was all for trading away multiple draft picks to get Sanchez. Sanchez was the guy Ryan wanted.

    Ryan is the one who leads with his big mouth and can’t ever seem to shut up. He may not want to kiss Belichick’s rings, but he could sure learn a thing or 2 about keeping information private and internal, and not shouted to the world by himself and every other member of the team.

  56. northstarnic says: May 23, 2013 2:16 PM

    Coward and perfect representative of that joke of a football organization.

  57. miamimike1 says: May 23, 2013 2:17 PM

    This has gone on long enough. This team has no control or team unity. Rex Ryan does not push one or the other and the team is not mature enough to act like a team working as one for a common goal.
    Get someone in the front office who will get a coach who will then run this team as it should. Its sad the owner has allowed this to go on for so long. Im not a Jets fan by any means but they deserve better. No sports fan should have to deal with this petty crap that doesn’t stop. The fans work to hard for their money to go and spend it on a bunch of pro players acting like a childrens pop warner team.

  58. hawkforlife says: May 23, 2013 2:17 PM

    Maybe if good old Rex hadn’t washed laundry in public the other day as usual the players wouldn’t think it’s OK to do it.

  59. gohometrolls says: May 23, 2013 2:19 PM

    It’s always been cromartie, hey Antonio learn when to shut up and put your team ahead of yourself you wash woman !

  60. svn2011 says: May 23, 2013 2:19 PM

    Dont think sanchez is any good personally but what Rex and the Jets are doing is a 180 turnaround to cover their ‘you know what’ . Reports about interceptions in ota’s, unamed jets etc they are building reasons to bench him after rex bet on him for 3 yrs. There is no reason to mention INT in ota’s unless it was intentional .
    Rex for all his bravado is a coward act who doesnt stick by his word like he claims to.

  61. rkt4mayor says: May 23, 2013 2:20 PM

    Not to put my foot in my mouth but Rex Ryan is clearly in love with Mark Sanchez.

    That is the only way to explain why Sanchez is even still given a shot at starting.

  62. floridaslonechargersfan says: May 23, 2013 2:21 PM

    Alert me when an unnamed Jets source says something positive about Sanchez. THAT will be the real news story/jaw dropper.

  69. 23chameleons says: May 23, 2013 2:37 PM

    Dear Jets,
    You know what you have in Sanchez, that’s why you picked Geno Smith early in the 2nd round. Why don’t you just put a stop to all the bs and just say, “Geno Smith is our guy and we’re preparing him to be the starter week 1. Mark understands that he had been given the chance to be the unquestioned starter for the Jets and now it’s Geno’s turn. Mark understands and accepts his role for the coming season.”

    Instead, you continue to put your business, decision making and employees in the most unfavorable light possible. Most of those people deserve better. You can’t possibly think you’re competing with the likes of the Patriot, Broncos and Texans for the right to represent the AFC in this years Super Bowl (and your fan base certainly doesn’t expect you to either). Show them you have a direction and come support they guys you’ve brought in to change the franchise’s (mis) fortunes like Smith and Ivory.

    Signed,
    Every NFL Fan

  73. CKL says: May 23, 2013 2:42 PM

    An unanonymous former Jet, Jason Taylor commented recently on NFL Live that Sanchez is indeed a bit immature. I think Damien Woody has said the same.

    Even though I am a Pats fan, I do feel a little bad for Sanchez. He hasn’t ever smacked back at any of his critics that I know of. That has to be tough. It’s not his fault that the Jets traded up to get him when they shouldn’t have (no player who ahs started ony 16 games in college should be traded up for) or gave him all that money. He simply isn’t good enough and now his confidence may be shattered to boot. There aren’t that many players who are even keeled enough to be in the NY spotlight and play that high profile of a position and do ok.

  74. fissels says: May 23, 2013 2:43 PM

    Un named sources equal vendetta driven media. My un named source at cbs sports.com tells me that Manish Mehta is jealous of Mike Freeman’s imaginary sources. Freeman’s sources are so much better at stating the obvious.

  77. txeer304 says: May 23, 2013 2:56 PM

    Funny how an unnamed source talks about Mark and everyone jumps at the chance to bash the unnamed source.
    100 of unnamed sources speak out against Geno and he became the biggest villain in sports.

    I’m not a Sanchez fan, but it’s time to let this guy up off the mat. He is NOT in the news for drugs, crime, womanizing or anything except being less skilled than the Jets organization and their fine fans want him to be.
    So the Jets’ brass, who CHOSE to move up in the draft, who CHOSE to name MS the starter, who CHOSE to extend his contract, are trying to deflect their fans ire away from their terrible decisions by hanging this kid out to dry. He’s not demanding attention, he is having it thrown at him and the Jets brass is happy to keep their own camps from being lit on fire.
    Trade him, release him or get off his case. He’s not blowing his own horn, he’s not demanding a big contract, he’s willing to compete for the starting role, so let it happen.
    And come on, all Rex Ryan knows about QB’ is that he wqas never fit enough to play the position.
    Let Sanchez up for air. It’s tough enough to play in NY.

    Don’t believe everything posted here, people.

  85. myopinionisrighterthanyours says: May 23, 2013 3:13 PM

    Why is it except for a couple of the comments, Rex Ryan is getting a free pass here? Rex had every reason and opportunity to bench Sanchez last year and didn’t until far too late. Notice the tense of the quote. I think this is referring to last year’s doomed season. Tebow or McElroy. Neither one could have performed any worse than what was being put out on the field.

  86. getyourownname says: May 23, 2013 3:14 PM

    Poor Jets fans. First Favre taking pics of his junk, then Sanchez generally sucking, now Geno Smith….sucks to be you. The Jets haven’t had a non-disgraceful QB since Testeverde and the sad thing is Vinny could probably lace them up today and still be better then all three of those clowns.

  97. accipiterq says: May 23, 2013 3:40 PM

    That’s going to town on someone? Sounded fairly polite, and gave an assessment of the team’s attitude without being vitriolic.

  98. lionsdraftguy says: May 23, 2013 3:40 PM

    I feel bad for Mark honestly. The guy has a horrible offensive line. Horrible receivers. Horrible running game. At least the guy has class, so you gotta respect that. And at least hes not kissing his tiny little bumps in his arms he calls biceps (Kaepernick).

  99. TylerHills says: May 23, 2013 3:41 PM

    At least they will have a Top 5 pick to rebuild with. Who might they take? Clowney? Bridgewater is Geno totally bombs this year?

  100. stainlessstill says: May 23, 2013 3:42 PM

    Worst franchise in all of sports, right there. They deserve to suffer. There’s only one team in N.Y worth talking about anyway. HINT: They won 2 Super Bowls this decade.

    Its kind of ironic if you think about. Everyone is upset because he didnt put his name to the quote, he’s just talking smack. We ridicule him and call him a coward,.

    So I know it is not just me but a buddy of mine a Jets fan asked me if I thought that Tebow was let go to save Rex Ryans job. I thought it a bit silly at the moment but it is looking like Ryan might have gotten rid of Tebow so he did not look bad backing a lame horse(Sanchez) and sitting a prized contender.

  105. rukkus1 says: May 23, 2013 3:51 PM

    And the Steelers will go nowhere this year except down Memory Lane.

    If memory lane is any indication of history repeating itself, then by all means, thanks for the kind words! Steelers will be a force. BOOK IT. MARK THESE WORDS.

    The Jets need to cut Sanchez today. Really, 3 interceptions in a practice game? We’re talking about practice? The Jets should be ashamed for cutting Tebow and leaving this freak show on the roster. Ole ButtFumble himself.

    Of course they’d probably go Matt Slausen on our best linebacker….

    The unnamed jet is the punter. Mark Sanchez will even make him look horrible if he starts.

  115. hor2012 says: May 23, 2013 4:32 PM

    I find unnamed sources funny and the reaction of people to unnamed sources even funnier. Why does everyone assume that just because some writer wrote it and then said that it came from unnamed sources that it was actually a team member that made the statement. I’m just wondering. Does anyone if think that these unnamed sources are just the reporters opinions and they are using the unnamed sources to mask thier feelings about MS

    Please clarify are you speaking of Sanchez or the unnamed source?

  117. dynaco says: May 23, 2013 4:34 PM

    Unnamed Jets and unnamed sources should not be published, period! What are these people so afraid of? And if the source is so secret, is it really a source or just fabrication? Grow a backbone and get back to me.

  121. flinestone says: May 23, 2013 4:44 PM

    No respectable journalist runs a story soley on an un named source or sources.

    Shoot…..it could be Rex himself or maybe it’s Mark because he knows the team will stink it up anyway and he wants to watch Gino struggle with that swiss cheese O-line.

    But then again this is the New York Jets….. a cut throat place to play and make a career.

  122. berg945 says: May 23, 2013 4:44 PM

    Unnamed Jets source = Geno Smith?
    ———————————————————-

    If it was Geno Smith I doubt it would have been an unnamed Jet. The media like to dump on the kid I don’t think he has any friends in the media. My guess it is an unnamed receiver that Sanchez can’t get the ball to

  125. NotoriousKDV says: May 23, 2013 4:58 PM

    Sanchez should get Obama to pull all of Freeman’s phone records and emails to find out who all of his sources are. Clearly Freeman is involved in espionage.

  126. kinggator says: May 23, 2013 5:04 PM

    This team is “The Real House Wives of New York” – it’s May and I can already predict that this season will be another FAILURE for the J-E-T-S! F-A-I-L!

  127. eatitfanboy says: May 23, 2013 5:10 PM

    This is absurd. If the team is better off without him around as a distraction, eat the darn 8 million dollars and move on.

    Is a franchise that is probably worth close to a billion dollars REALLY going to hamper their team by keeping a guy around over 8 million dollars?

    The money is going to impact the cap either way. That’s over. There is nothing you can do about it.

    Don’t compound it by keeping a guy around you don’t want.

    One of the best poker tips I’ve ever gotten is never to stay in a pot just because you’ve already put X amount of money in it. If you can’t win, fold.

  128. rc33 says: May 23, 2013 5:12 PM

    I’m anything but a Sanchez apologist but I believe this guy catches waaaay too much flak. I suppose it comes with the town he plays in and being stuck with a loud-mouthed coach who talks as if his team is Super Bowl bound every year.
    A lot of the criticism he receives is, IMO, a direct result of dumb ass Rex Ryan comments.
    And guy’s like Steve Smith and other throwing insults in Sanchez’ direction; how ’bout worrying about your own lousy team?
    Who else in the league regularly catches stuff from like this from random players? The piling on is ridiculous.
    Sure he stinks but drafting him too high and giving him that absurd extension is on Tannenbaum; not Sanchez’ fault for accepting the money.

  130. weepingjebus says: May 23, 2013 5:20 PM

    Somehow we did it. Despite the INTs, and the buttfumble, and the jersey tattoo, and the repeated self-immolations in games like the Thanksgiving meltdown against the Pats, we somehow managed to get both Rex and Sanchez back for another year. I’m so proud of everyone here, I really am. Just excellent work all around.

  131. nastyn8770 says: May 23, 2013 5:21 PM

    Not a jets fan,but Sanchez has had too many chances! I’m sick of hearing about those turds already and it’s only May. Cut your losses and release that bust.

  132. lovefootball4life says: May 23, 2013 5:26 PM

    “Come to think of it, Unnamed Jet has been the team’s most consistent performer in recent years.”

    One of the funniest comments I’ve read in a while.

  133. kingpel says: May 23, 2013 5:31 PM

    Looks like Sanchez is going to get the Tim Tebow treatment by the most classless organization in football. So players and coaches are going to drag this guy through the mud all off season? If he is so bad, then release him and go with your superior back ups.

    Sick of anonymous sources and comments. If its anonymous then it means nothing. Not brave enough to put your name then you’re just trying to talk smack.

    Childish.

    I find it funny that bender and others rip a player for not putting their name on it when every commentor on this site does the same. Including me!

  135. jprcox says: May 23, 2013 5:51 PM

    When a reporter needs a story to write before the deadline, “Unnamed” always agrees and supports a juicy story.

    The only funny thing is when that quote by “Unnamed” is further reported on by national media.

    Personally, I don’t think reporters should be able to used “Unnamed” sources.

  136. sbdt says: May 23, 2013 5:56 PM

    At first glance I thought the headline was “Unnamed Jet Goes Down on Mark Sanchez,” which I would also believe.

  137. kokomike says: May 23, 2013 5:57 PM

    Time for Sanchez to change the name on the back of his jersey to: HE HATE ME

  138. bowler says: May 23, 2013 5:58 PM

    I,m glad Garrard got out of that joke of a team I would retire to if I had to play for the Jets

  139. steves11 says: May 23, 2013 5:59 PM

    The “Unnamed” is not even a current member of the Jets. It was Tim Tebow’s parting shot when he was released. He still thinks that he should have been given a chance as the starter this year.

  140. boswivel says: May 23, 2013 6:14 PM

    One thing I love about PFT…the picture speaks a thousand words.

    I’m no Chuck Norris, but no chance I ever wear that thing. Never. Well, I would do it for 8 million a year.

  141. gizzmonic says: May 23, 2013 6:15 PM

    The few remaing “good” players want out. Once they figure out they will get cut by putting there name on it, we will have many names for these reports

  142. dlk47823 says: May 23, 2013 6:17 PM

    Its ironic, but last year’s only stories that actually had named Jets (g Matt Slauson for one) were the ones where offensive players stated how bad Tebow was. Slasuson and others said he had no business being on an NFL team.
    Now, that was believable!

  143. dlk47823 says: May 23, 2013 6:18 PM

    I don’t think we’ve had a Jet story this year without a made-up (I mean unamed) source. Keep up the work!

  144. green41563 says: May 23, 2013 6:19 PM

    People can say whatever they want about the morality of making anonymous remarks. And sure, it should be kept in-house, but what do you do in a situation where you’re watching your career, your production, and your chance at a championship disappear because the front office has a politicized self-interest in keeping him around?

    I mean, if Mark Sanchez had been a second-round pick instead of a top-5 pick, the Sanchez chapter would have ended years ago. But because he’s a golden boy, he’s held to a different standard than his teammates. That has to anger you as a player.

    Not fair. Needs to end.

    So is Sanchez the number one case study in football skill regression or was he just way overrated from the get go because he played for the jets? I’m not a jets fan and don’t follow the afc that closely as a Seahawk fan but his career trajectory seems to be similar Rex Grossmans

  149. tedmurph says: May 23, 2013 6:36 PM

    Jets have to start over and rebuild. That can’t happen until they get rid of Sanchez and settle things down. He would benefit with a fresh start somewhere else too. Learn from the mistake(last regime), move on and eat whatever money you have to.

  150. @Cereal_22 says: May 23, 2013 6:38 PM

    Sanchez is an outstanding buy low candidate for a team needing a QB out there….to me this kid can play, he’s had NO help at all.

  151. rooneyruleblues says: May 23, 2013 6:57 PM

    Unfortunate that writer can get this much attention from unknown sources. Traffic down on the site? Slow news day? Oh, no problem. Just make up a story about an unknown Jets player talking smack on Sanchez. BOOM problem solved.

    I call Bull on this one. Freeman is a hack, just like much of the bull spewed here. If you wanted to be a professional journalist, you don’t use unknown sources.

  152. stankytoes12 says: May 23, 2013 7:05 PM

    When I read “goes to town” I was hoping for something like everyone thinks Sanchez is a complete joke for his middle school girl-esque headband and his embarrassing GQ pose and the fact that he sucks donkey nuggets at playing QB and should look into a career into interior decorating or floral design, and then I read “Everyone on the team likes Mark personally but there’s a general feeling among some of the players that maybe it’s time to give someone else a chance,”.

    Wake me up when someone says something we don’t all already know, or atleast says something we all already know in a fashion that could be described as “going to town” and entertaining. thanks.

  154. swaggyy says: May 23, 2013 7:15 PM

    How do you throw 3 INTS in practice? We talkin bout practice! Talking crap about the guy isn’t goin to help the situation. How about you shut your mouth and start competing like a real team and get behind the guy. With that headband, I’m sure bufumble would like if you got behind him.

  155. jimthebuilder27 says: May 23, 2013 7:42 PM

    If he wants to wear that headband he needs to shave!

    An unnamed source! Who’da thunk it? Yet another reason I hate the New York Jets. Such a dumpster of an organization!

  156. corkwriter says: May 23, 2013 8:48 PM

    Uh-oh. Plaxico Burress just invited Sanchez to go clubbing with him.

  157. lewiscafarella says: May 23, 2013 9:15 PM

  158. uncletuna says: May 24, 2013 12:09 AM
