The Jets were in disarray before their game Sunday vs. the Dolphins. They still had a slim chance of making the playoffs, but aside from that uncertainty, there’s been plenty of talk the past few weeks about whether Mark Sanchez was the quarterback of the future and whether Brian Schottenheimer should continue on as offensive coordinator.

Although Rex Ryan asked you to light a candle before Sunday’s game, that obviously didn’t work.

The Dolphins knocked off the Jets 19-17 Sunday, and Sanchez -- and the Jets offense -- was awful. Sanchez went 21 of 32 for 207 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions, including one to Marvin Mitchell in the red zone with less than 3 minutes to play as New York was driving for the lead.

While LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene combined for 111 rushing yards, and rookie receiver Jeremy Kerley made some nice plays -- including a 41-yard pass -- Sanchez killed the Jets chances. And might get his offensive coordinator fired.

And if Rex Ryan keeps tying his fate to Sanchez, you have to wonder how much longer he’ll keep his job. Or if he’s smart enough to even have it.

Hey Rex, You are the head coach of an NFL team, act like one. Stop falling in love with guys and start paying attention to ability!!! Sanchez will bring you nothing but a pink slip. You have an oppurtunity here to do something special here and you are blowing it by sticking with "your guys". Time to drop;Sanchez.Scott,Leonard,Smith,Pool,Greene and of course, Schotty, Or your going next!!!

Fat Boy needs to learn to STFU and just coach his players. Stop making promises and start working on the fundamentals, Loudmouth.
