    Would Mark Sanchez be the worst starting QB is Superbowl history?

    Rex Grossman, Trent Dilfer? I can't think of anybody ever who's been asked to do less for his team than Mark Sanchez, well maybe Jeff Hostetler. Love the rook to the death and I think he'll be great in the future but anybody can think of lesser rated QB's that played in the big game? I would still rather have Mark Sanchez QB'in this team than Rex Grossman to be honest. At least Mark at this point tries hard no to lose the game and can manage some first downs. Rex just threw the ball in the air hoping someone would catch it.

    O'Donnell was at least historically great at protecting the football. I thank God that the Jets had Mark Sanchez as a QB this year. If the Jets had a legitimately good QB, they'd easily be one of the five best teams in the league. If Sanchez reaches his potential and the team remains as good, the Jets will be tough as hell to beat.

    lol yeah man Neil gets a bad rep for that game but its actually true ... what eh was known for was being SMART with the football. What often gets overlooked is Dallas actually forced the Steelers to pass that game.... Something the Steelers didn't want to do ...

    Craig Morton was the worst.

    2 SB, 2 teams. Threw I think 10 interceptions in the 2 games, one for the Cowboys against the Colts, one for the Broncos against the Cowboys.

    And Rex Grossman was worse than Sanchez.

    How about we upset the Colts before we worry about Sanchez in the Super Bowl.

    Woodley and Eason were real bad. Hos and Dilfer did exactly what they were told to do. Protect the football, handoff, and not turn it over. They did that job just fine.

    Dilfer gets a bad rap in my opinion. He could also throw the occasional deep ball to help loosen up the secondary.

    Worst has to be Tony Eason. Only qb not to complete a pass in the SB.

    Sanchez makes HUGE throws in clutch situations. Just because he isn't slinging the rock around doesn't mean he's horrible. Personally I don't see the Jets changing much from their philosophy right now, because as we all see, running the ball and playing stout defense is how you win when it matters. Look at all the good QBs who put up gaudy stats this postseason but are on the golf course right now.

    Sanchez just needs to keep making smart decisions with the football and we'll win this thing.

    Is that true? I know the Pats got destroyed in the Jan. '86 game, but 0 completions???

    By the way, as a big Animal House fan, I love the user name.

    Absolutely true. 0-6 before being replaced. Tony was so confused with the Bears 46 he was curled up in the fetal position. And thanx, one of my favorite flicks as well.

    Sanchez is very similar to Dilfer, role wise. Except that Mark probably makes a few more plays. (Dilfer never would have made that TD pass to Keller Sunday, for instance.)

    In terms of who was worse? Grossman, for sure.

    Morton, Dilfer, O'Donnell all have cases.
