SAR might have have gone a little too far defending Sanchez and obviously has an agenda, but some of the things he said were right. Greene sucked, Sparano sucked, the D did give up big plays at the worst times. But still 75% of the board was filled with Sanchez threads. Even on Facebook when I see people talking about the Jets, all I hear is "Sanchez this, Sanchez that". And honestly, I can't help but shake my head.
I don't know if you are a fan of baseball, but I'm a huge baseball fan. I root for the Yankees. And every year in the regular season and playoffs, especially the playoffs, all the fans can talk about when the Yankees are losing is A-Rod. "A-Rod sucks, **** A-Rod, herpty derp derp". It's like where you watching the game? Did you see how every other player struggled and our pitching sucked. yet A-Rod is the only one lambasted.
I just hate when fans scapegoat players and pinpoint them for the team's problems as a whole. It's like, do you actually watch the games or do you just skim through them and regurgitate the same rhetorical bullcrap that everybody else is spewing?
I'm a Yankee fan too and I agree about ARod. And I always wanted Sanchez to succeed. He seems like a great kid.
The problem with the Sanchez apologists is that they seem to take all of the blame away from him. It's everyone's fault but his.
But that doesn't explain away his lousy play. His decision, leadership skills and demeanor sucks. But what really worries more than anything is his accuracy which is terrible.
Like I said, plenty of blame to go around but Sanchez is a BIG problem on a team full of BIG problems.
If he's the Jets QB next year, and I hope he isn't, I will root for him and hope that he somehow plays better. But I see a qb who has regressed, not a qb who has learned from his mistakes.
Let him go someplace else and see if he can resurrect his career because I just don't see it happening here. Then again, I don't see it happening anywhere at this point.
It's too bad.
