Packers 9, Jets 0: Mark Sanchez Takes Blame

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez took the blame for the team’s offensive struggles in Sunday’s 9-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

“It’s disappointing for everyone across the board – except for the defense of course. I think our defense did a really good job today. It was a great effort. They held them to nine points and we need to help them out on offense. That starts with the quarterback. I can’t give them picks like that. I was happy with the decisions but the throws have to be better. It was a poor performance by myself and it’s tough to get an offense going when your quarterback isn’t playing well” Sanchez said.

The second-year quarterback finished 16-of-38 for 256 yards and had two passes intercepted.

“I think some passes got away from me. The good thing was that I was making the right decisions with the ball – I just wasn’t putting it in the right spot and I have to help the receivers out. When I’m not playing well, it’s really hard for Schotty (Brian Schottenheimer) to make the right calls. It’s hard to get the running game going when we’re not getting completions and we left a lot of completions out there today. It’s just a poor job on my part,” Sanchez said.
