He may actually perform better in this offense than he did last year with Sparano's offense (which was an all around cluster ****). Not saying he'll be good, but he may be able to strive for average for all we know. But ultimately he can't be any worse than a guy who hasn't played in two years (Garrard), a late round pick who probably won't be much of anything now or in the future (McElroy), a rookie who probably should not be rushed into the lineup unless he far and away out performs everyone else (Smith), and a training camp body (Matt Simms). No point to cutting him from a football standpoint... and that's scary to say.
I've been of the opinion that this isn't all on Sanchez and his abilities. Is he a great QB? No, but he should be more serviceable then he has been. After those AFC championship games the wheels came off all over the place and he wasn't given a ton to work with. Plus with that circus not shocked he regressed.

It would be in Sanchez's best interest to get the hell out of there, but I do agree with you that it is in the Jet's best interest to keep him as there isn't really any other choice.
