Coming out of 2010, boy, you'd say the Jets found a very good kid who is 25 and ready to really learn and grow on the job. Right? You bet. That summer of 2011 no one was talking about Mark Sanchez as a 'problem'. We were flirting with Aso and adding missing pieces like Plaxico, remember? I do.
Well what the hell happened? Did Mark just take stupid pills? Or did the Jets take away every offensive weapon they'd given him and replace them with sh-t? Or did the Jets let the OL fall to pieces and let him get slammed around? Or did the Jets keep an OC who has his head in the sand? Or did the Jets bring in a new OC that had never done that job before? Or did the Jets bring in Tim Tebow to mess with his head? Or did the Jets leave Cortland with the worst offense in the NFL?
I don't have an infatuation with Mark Sanchez. I just know that we had a 23 year old kid that accomplished a hell of a lot by the time he turned 25, still a baby, and was mishandled by a lousy head coach that doesn't give a damn about offense.
Let's find out. Let's see if he sucks outright or just needs a set of offensive playmakers like the other successful NFL quarterbacks have.
Lets surround him with all-pros! He will still be inaccurate and a non-leader! He will be imtimidated by the talent surrounding him and crawl into his bunker in a fetal position. Last year he was scorned by Holmes and who knows who else? This year he has the excuse of Tebow and less talented players surrounding him then in prior years!
We keep providing him with excuses but the guy is just not a leader nor is he an accurate passer! With all the talent surrounding him in his first two years, did he ever complete 65 per cent of his passes? Did he win a championship? Case closed!
