"We're embarrassing on offense. Forget the stats and 'This is where we are rushing the football.' We're not making plays when it counts, and we are continuously in a situation that is embarrassing, irritating, frustrating coming in on Monday, knowing that we could have won yesterday then we would be ahead and almost certain, if we won the rest of our games, to get in [the playoffs]. Now here we are again, if we win out, we have to have this scenario happen [to make it]. It's irritating."

When Sanchez has a solid game (QB rating > 80), NY is 5-2, and he's had more solid games than most signal-callers in the league this year. I would imagine Braylon isn't really complaining when Sanchez performs at that level, but Sanchez has also had more than his share of clunkers this year as well:

The Jets are 0-5 when Sanchez has one of his bad games, and as you can see, there really isn't a lot of room in between good and bad for the rookie -- in all but one game this year, he's had a rating of either greater than 80 or less than 60. No other QB has alternated solid and bad efforts as much as Sanchez, which means Braylon should only really be embarrassed and irritated half of the time. All things considered, I guess that's better than the team he started the year on, which, prior to their rush-happy 41-point explosion vs. KC, had a frustrating and embarrassing offense all of the time.
