Put Kenny O in Rex's QB killing G&P system and he would have taken 150 sacks/year. Sanchez might still stink but he's been handcuffed for 4 years. A passing QB in Rex's G&P is about as useless as giving a midget a yo-yo.
A passing attack going for the win,I miss this!
A Pro Passing game!
Just throw the ball down the field!
Mark Sanchez looks like a CFL QB who will have to fight to make his CFL team....somehow he was drafted #5 in the 1st Rd. of an NFL Draft....by a Cursed Team.
For all the O'Brien guys, I asked this earlier, and no one answered so here goes again. If you are starting a franchise and you have to use a QB who was O'Brien's contemporary, and you can't pick Montana, Marino, nor Elway, are you gonna really pick him to start your franchise with? Below is a rudimentary list of all the QBs who were established starters during the years that O'Brien was the Jets established starter ('85-'91).
Bills - Kelly
Colts - Trudeau / George
Patriots - Grogan / Eason / Millen
Browns - Kosar
Bengals - Esiason
Oilers - Moon
Steelers - Mark Malone / Bubby Brister
Seahawks - Krieg
Chargers - Fouts / McMahon / Friesz
Raiders - Plunkett / Jay Schroeder
Chiefs - Blackledge / DeBerg
Giants - Simms
Redskins - Schroeder / Williams / Rypien
Cowboys - Danny White / Aikman
Cardinals - Lomax / Rosenbach / Tupa
Eagles - Jaworski / Cunningham
Bears - McMahon / Harbaugh
Packers - Majkowski
Lions - Hipple / Long / Peete
Vikings - Kramer / Wilson / Gannon
Bucs - Testaverde
Rams - Everett
Saints - Dave Wilson / Bobby Hebert
Falcons - Dave Archer / Chris Miller
The bolded guys are my picks, and that's 14 QBs I'd rather start a franchise with than O'Brien. Heck, I can fill 4 team's QB depth charts before even considering O'Brien. A few guys I can't compare properly because although I do know their names, I don't remember seeing them (Archer, Lomax, Jaws), so there may be more. And when you look at the list of names left over once I've taken out my 14, there's a common thread: AVERAGE AT BEST.
O'brien really was our savior for a while, mostly because of great surrounding talent ( Wesley Walker, Bruce Harper at times, Toon, Shuler, Freeman, he was stacked with talent.) I remember those great Jets v Dolphs games with Wesley Walker.
He was nervous in the pocket, and he would go down before being killed. there really was no protection for QB's in the 1980's and our lines weren't that great. He would get sacked a ton, instead of throwing away the ball.
Our defense back then was weak, and we'd always have to score a lot to win., which did not happen too often.
