Flacco is not elite, but he's very good and getting better. Top 10.
If the Jets had a Flacco, we're a 10 win team in 2012. And a 4-time Playoff Team under Rex Ryan, even with the declining and againg defense of late.
Flacco's turnovers: 12, 12, 10, 10, 12
Sanchez's Turnovers: 20, 13, 18, 18
Sanchez averages almost 11 fumbles a season (most of them lost, many for 6 the other way). Flacco, 9, with fewer lost.
I assure you, those 5-12 extra turnovers Sanchez hands over makes a big difference.
Flacco's lifetime Comp % is 60.5%. Sanchez's is 55.1% 5% doesn't sound like much, but it's huge.
Completion Percentage and turnovers are two differences between a busted jag and a Super Bowl quarterback.
Raven's have one. We don't.
Any "rebuild" of our Jets cannot begin till we rid ourselves of Sanchez, or Sanchez VASTLY and INSTANTLY improves himself to a 60% passer with less than 15 total turnovers a year.
