Ok I get your drift, your answer is we can look for JAG at the QB position(i.e. give a guy a chance) who in their third year will set Jets franchise records for TDs thrown etc...
I respectfully disagree.
I think what you propose is fantasy football. The NFL is not baseball!!!
You see in baseball if you can hit a ball you can hit a ball it doesn't matter what team you are on though the stadium will have some effect.
NFL football is different.
IMO football is an interlocking game of interdependant relationships which means that if your OL doesn't give you time and the proper windows through which to throw, or your WRs don't run their routes aggressively you will not be a succcessful QB.
This is why one key player on a team can have a devestating impact on the teams overall effectiveness. While this is true in all team sports it is especially true in football.
See I have actually watched Jets football for over four decades and I can say without hesitation that Sanchez is one of the BEST Jets QBs based on his current developmental stage that the Jets have ever had.
But I am sure that you would be happy if we got Bollinger back cause it is so easy to find QBs by using moneyball to run an NFL team.
As for all of the young QB guns currently in the NFL only Cameron has shown to me that he is better than Sanchez. I know all about Stafford while outstanding, I love the guy, he has Megatron who Stafford will without hesitation throw into tripple coverage to get a completion.
Sanchez has no such luxury...
We will see and if I am wrong I will certainly come out and admit it. I just hope that all of Sanchez's many detractors will have the guts to vow to do the same.
