How do you know?
His first season he was a rookie. Tough to judge.
His second season he was great. 5 miracle 4th quarter comebacks. The 11-5 record our second-best in team history.
His third season was the Wayne Hunter/Plaxico Burress/Ladanian Tomlinson failshow. Still would have made the playoffs if the defense did its job at Philadelphia and against the Giants.
His fourth season was the "we don't need no stinkin' playmakers we have Tim Tebow" show.
If you look at the 20 game span between his first 10 rookie games and the start of the 2011 season, Mark Sanchez won 16 out of 20 games including some very high pressure playoff wins and some very important regular season wins against elite teams.
Since Plax/LT/Keller/Edwards got hurt or old or traded, Mark Sanchez looks terrible. Connect the dots. So does the defense, by the way. So does special teams, by the way. Mark Sanchez isn't the reason the Jets are a 6-10 squad. The problems go way deeper than that.
