Mark Sanchez will not play in Super Bowl XLIV.  Nope. And that’s all right.

It will, however, be a great game between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints.

That’s all right. Sanchez, or if it really bothers you, Sánchez, 24, performed like a veteran in many of the Jets’ games in just his rookie season.

He led the New York Jets to a 24-14 wildcard victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, then topped that off with a 17-14 upset win over San Diego Chargers.

But the run ended last Sunday, when the Jets were stopped by Super Bowl bound Indianapolis in the AFC Championship game, 30-17.

Head coach Rex Ryan is already thinking about next season, because Sanchez and the Jets, were just a single game from the Super Bowl.

Jet-setter: With a rookie in the QB spot, a first-year head coach, New York finished the season at 11-8 while surpassing any criticism along the way. And lets not forget a Jets’ defensive mechanism that will only be improved upon next season.

Early in the season, the Jets started out with three victories. That 3-0 was followed with six losses in seven games, before New York worked themselves through five victories in their last six games granting them postseason play.

Sanchez is definitely on the Jets’ future.  His postseason numbers were 41 completions on 68 attempts for 539 yards. He threw for 4 TDs, 2 interceptions, and was sacked just once.
