July 29, 2008; Hempstead, NY, USA: New York Jets quarterback Brett Ratliff

With the opening workout of training camp just a few hours away, we talk about the quarterback, Mark Sanchez. Actually, former Jets QB Chad Pennington talks about Mark Sanchez. Newsday caught up with Chad at his home in South Florida, and he talked about how the Jets QB situation can only go one way or the other:

“Or else the Jets will lose, Mark will get the blame, and they’ll put Tim in,” the former Jets starter said from his home in South Florida. “One of those two things will happen. It’s either/or, as far as I’m concerned. I don’t think there’s really any other scenario.”

As we have talked about before, Mark Sanchez sought out Chad on two separate occasions after Tony Sparano took over for Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator, to talk about the offense as well as his experience here in New York. During those times, Chad learned that Mark has the desire and work ethic to get it done:

“He made the effort to come to South Florida twice, and that says a lot. I think he probably wanted to reach out to me because of my experience with Tony [Sparano], and also because he knows I’ve been in the exact spot he’s in right now — playing in New York, experiencing some success as well as some failure.”
