Putting a statistical stake in Mark Sanchez's Jets career.
In 2009 The Jets had the number 1 ground game in the NFL, and a top 5 defense. Sanchez for some reason gets the credit.
In 2010 the Jets had a top 5 ground game, and a top 5 defense. Somehow again Sanchez gets the credit.
In 2011 the Jets had an average ground game, and a top 5 defense. Somehow its everyone elses Fault but Sanchez but at times youll still see a ton of cherry picked stats in which posters think he was actually improving :steamin:
Well here is some advanced metrics for you guys from Football Outsiders:
Primer: Im using DVOA although some can use DYAR if they would like.
The other statistic given is DVOA, or Defense-adjusted Value Over Average. This number represents value, per play, over an average quarterback in the same game situations. The more positive the DVOA rating, the better the player's performance. Negative DVOA represents below-average offense. DVOA (and its cousin, VOA, which isn't adjusted based on opponent) is further explained here.
In 2009 Mark Sanchez had a DVOA of -29 which ranked him 35 in the league. Yes he was ranked below some 2nd stringers.
In 2010 Mark Sanchez had a DVOA of -4.3 which ranked him 28 in the league. Yes even with a good ground game, Edwards, Holmes, Keller and LT Mark Sanchez was one of the worst QB's in the league.
In 2011 Mark Sanchez had a DVOA of -12 which ranked him 37th in the league. Yes, there were several backup QBs that were ranked above him. For those Cherry pickers please read this a few times.
In 2012 Mark Sanchez currently has a DVOA of -23 which ranks him 31st in the league.
Lets Sum it up:
-Mark Sanchez at best has ranked 28-31st in the league at the QB position.
-Yes this is saying that the majority of first stringers during this time period were better, as well as some backups.
-Mark Sanchez has never EVER produced even an AVG offense.
-Mark Sanchez Makes 13million a year.
The $58.25 million gives Sanchez the seventh-highest financial package among NFL quarterbacks, sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.
The majority of this teams wins since 2009 has been because of the defense and running game and coaching. Rex Ryan has beaten Peyton Manning at Indi in the playoffs, and Tom Brady in Foxboro in the playoffs. He has this team playing as hard as ever right now. Give him the credit. Give the Oline the credit. Give the defense the credit. Because there is an overpaid JAG taking way too much of the credit at the QB position for anything thats went right the last few years.
Here is final attempt to knock some sense into you guys. Here are the last 20 superbowl QB's.
Anyone see the trend here? You dont win the Superbowl without a stud QB. There was one anomaly in 2000. Trent Dilfer won the Superbowl with a DVOA which ranked him 38th in the league(Sanchez territory). How did he do this? They did it with one of the best defenses in the history of the game, and best rushing games in the history of the game. Its a task that has been impossible to replicate by anyone else since and wont be happening again.
