He didn't bench him when he cost the Jets a playoff spot in 2011.
He didn't bench him when Greg McElroy bailed him out against Arizona.
He didn't bench him when he threw four interceptions against the Titans with a playoff spot potentially on the line.
This time, enough is enough. Rex Ryan should be fired for his stubborn refusal to bench Mark Sanchez.
There simply isn't an excuse this time. The defense was excellent. The Titans did everything in their power to hand the Jets the game. An excellent special teams play put the Jets in position to win.
But Sanchez still single-handedly managed to lose the game, and Ryan has to pay for that.
