[QUOTE=Dirtstar;4501448]don't have to look very hard, just type "Sanchez pro bowl" into Google.
this is from Rich Cimini, of all people: [url]http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/jets/post/_/id/9651/sanchez-a-pro-bowl-quarterback[/url]
prior to the last 3 weeks, where the offense had a complete meltdown, Sanchez had posted a combined 26 touchdowns and only 11 picks.
at that time, he was a borderline candidate.[/QUOTE]
Thank you Dirtstar; that was an outstanding read and just goes to show how much overall improvements Sanchez made last season, during awful situations ala Shotty Jr as offensive coordinator, an aging Burress who was completely useless as our #2 WR between the 20's; due to the fact that he spent 3 years away from the game of football (prison), Mason being a washed up 37 year old who was released due to low production (couldn't play the game of football any longer), having to throw Sanchez' slot WR in Kerley into the fire after the release of Mason 6 weeks into the season; a raw/5th round rookie at that, Nick Mangold going down, having to "replace" Mangold while starting an undrafted rookie who wasn't even with the team during the offseason (Baxter?), not having a solid backup offensive lineman for the simple fact that A.) Vlad has busted (thus far) and B.) Turner went down before the season started etc, etc.
Regardless of what the critics may (or may not) say, Sanchez has improved each of his first 3 seasons in the league and set a career high in completion percentage, total yards, TD's and overall QB rating; despite the fact that he was surrounded by an offense with a whole lot of ****ty situation(s). Can't forget that Holmes made it even worse on Sanchez.
