In the past two seasons, Jets QB Mark Sanchez has greatly underachieved. Now, it appears that even his own head coach his noticing, saying that the former phenom will have to earn the starting job in 2013 despite his large paycheck.
While being asked by AroundtheLeague.com about who his starter is, Ryan said this:
"No. 1, you heard about what John talked about, the competition. Bringing in competition at every position, not just the quarterback position. ... That is what we want to do. So to say Mark Sanchez or this quarterback or that quarterback, I think there's clearly going to be competition."
So, it appears that Ryan has lost some of his confidence in the guy. Despite him being bad, he'll probably end up starting so that the Jets will get at least some of their money's worth.
