Report: Mark Sanchez hasn’t decided whether to have surgery


When it comes to news about the quarterback position on the New York Jets, nothing is ever straightforward.

So it should come as no surprise that a few hours after news broke that Mark Sanchez had decided to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, another report emerged to contradict the initial report.

The new report comes from Chris Mortensen of ESPN, who says Sanchez still has not abandoned his goals for rehabilitating his shoulder and has no definite plans for surgery yet. The initial report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said that while Sanchez might want to give rehab one more try, he knows that surgery is coming.

Regardless of whether Sanchez has actually decided to have surgery or not, what’s clear is this: Sanchez and the Jets are ready to move on from each other. Although it’s still theoretically possible that Sanchez could return for the second half of the season, there’s almost no chance of that happening. The next time we see Sanchez will be in 2014, with some other team.

    Surgery or not, will you please get a hairstyle and lose the girly thing on your head?

    I don’t know what’s funnier Mark Sanchez’s QB play or him wearing that girly headband

    Please go away. Jet fans have moved on. Geez enough already.

    I wonder if anyone will be foolish enough to pick him up next year. Then again stranger things have happened

    You are assuming another team would want him.

    Was the picture taken into a mirror?

    The Jets could be 4-0 with a healthy Hispanic.

    I hope the surgery will be to remove the headband thing so he can regain some masculinity! I think he may have an estrogen imbalance and it is inhibiting him from being able to play a mans sport!

    While you’re thinking about it, may I suggest a hair stylist? Tebow could probably recommend someone.

    To be safe, doctors also X-Rayed Sanchez’s head, and found nothing.

    Who Cares…….have the surger or don’t have the surgery its not like your playing this yr….

    When I first heard about the surgery I was opposed to it.

    But then I said “Heck – if Mark Sanchez wants to become a woman, than so be it – I’ll still root for him”

    The good news is, now the headband won’t seem quite so weird.

    And King George wrote in his dairy: “Nothing of importance happened this day.”

    Can’t be worse than Matt Flynn. Can’t be.

    All those Jets fans demanding respect last week sure disappeared quickly

    That sissy hair band must be squeezing his brain,fore he’s done as a Jet,and if he can’t take a hint,shame on him. While Geno is immature,and makes stupid mistakes he does have the physical skills that Mark lacks.

  19. gmsingh says: Oct 1, 2013 7:52 AM

    The question is when will Sanchez come out of the closet and admit to being openly bad?

  20. jake0831 says: Oct 1, 2013 8:52 AM

    Rex Ryan is already making noises about Geno Smith not playing the “way” he wants. Perhaps he is attempting to keep the door open for Ms. Sanchez. Afterall, Rex’s mantra is: “It’s not all Marks fault” and “Mark gives us the best chance to win.” Good luck Jets fans.
