I honestly feel bad for the guy. He tries his hardest and has an entire legion of people who hate him. Can't be an easy thing to handle. Still, it would all go away if he could just quit turning the ball over and making bone-headed decisions.
I don't feel bad for him.
I wish he never came out in that Draft in the first place. Then when I learned that he only started his Senior season in High School, just like in College I practically put my fist through a wall.
I mean how much more of a reach could this guy have been?
He also scored in one of the last big rookie contract years. $60M for a so-called QB that can't hit the broad side of a barn.
I've been watching football for a long time and probably the most disparaging thing I've ever heard said about a player was by Bob Papa on Sirius Radio last year. Describing a pass Sanchez threw that was 20 feet over the head of a wide open receiver who had run an out route to the sideline and where Sanchez had zero pass-rush pressure and a totally clear throwing lane, Papa said,"I don't know, sometimes you just want to ask Mark Sanchez....do you really do this for a living?"
I wanted him to be great, I rooted for him to be great, then I rooted for him to be just good....he's just not an NFL QB....shame is that 5 years were wasted on this guy.
I'll always think though that Woody Johnson had an alterior motive and wanted him to be the "face" of the franchise as much as a star QB...didn't happen.
Last year. I don't care if they sign David Gerrard, let him play. I really can't watch "my QB" throw more INT's to D-linemen or curl up in the fetal position when someone gets to within 5 yards of him, or miss hitting half the screen passes called, or never putting the ball in a good place to be caught when he does complete one his passes (at a league low %)...guy is just brutal.
Nothing to feel bad about....don't worry for him, he's got probably over $25Mill banked and will own a bunch of those lousy In-Out Burger franchises he says he loves so much, when he's out of the NFL next year. Guy doesn't even know what a good hamburger is haha.
