Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News tweeted that fans began booing Sanchez during the Jets’ second drive of the third quarter. Mehta said the boos were even louder a play later after the offense went 3-and-out following an incompletion from Sanchez.
At that point in the third quarter, the Jets were losing 10-0 at home to the 49ers. Sanchez was 7/17 for 75 yards and an interception. The offense only produced 113 yards and turned the ball over three times through that point.
Ready to see the truly sickening stat? Here’s how their drives had ended to that point:
punt, punt, fumble, punt, fumble, interception, punt
As soon as the Jets acquired Tim Tebow, many figured that would lead to a quarterback controversy and that the former Broncos QB would eventually become the Jets starter. Tebow threw his first pass of the season on a jump pass earlier in the game, so a switch to Tebow would have made plenty of sense.
For those who were waiting for the breaking point that would have led to a switch to Tebow as the team’s quarterback, Sunday’s ugly showing by Sanchez may have been it.
