I'll believe it when I see it throughout the actual season.
Tony Sparano is here to bring back the "ground-and-pound" offense, aka, to baby Mark Sanchez. He succeeded with top tier defenses and ground games, only asking him to throw the ball 15-22x a game, allowing him to do the only thing he does well, play-action and one-read throws. When he was asked to carry the team, he faltered.
He isn't a QB, he's a game manager. So is Tim Tebow, too, before I hear the crap from the Sanchez apologists, but Tebow makes plays with his feet and is more difficult to defend.
That being said, when the ground game is top five and the defense is top three, Sanchez can succeed, as can Joe Flacco, Alex Smith and probably Tim Couch and Cade McCown if they had those opportunities. He's a below average QB, but as a manager he's serviceable. He could be our Trent Dilfer.
Cue the dumb comparisons to Eli Manning.... But for those who watch more than just the Jets, they won't bother.
