Jets' Ryan defends Sanchez, vows to restore order

Jets coach Rex Ryan says embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez has the support of the organization, and he vows to clean up a team that was in turmoil late in the season.

With some teammates and members of the organization anonymously questioning Sanchez's work ethic and leadership abilities in a Daily News story this week, Ryan came to his quarterback's defense. "If it's not all of them, the majority of our football team has a great deal of confidence in Mark Sanchez," Ryan said on a conference call Friday introducing new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano.

Ryan is also disappointed by players anonymously criticizing Sanchez.

"Saying things and not putting your name on it? That's not being a Jet," he said. "That's going to change without question."
