    [QUOTE=bitonti;4297000]at this point, i have forgotten what Mark Sanchez does well anymore. What is his strength? What does he do well? All i see are weaknesses.[/QUOTE]


    Here's a thought - picture him as D'wayne Robertson or Vernon Gholston . . . it'll help you (and only you) see his strengths better.

    Is neck affecting Sanchez's long passes ?

    Let's do a little detective work here.

    Mark Sanchez's proficiency on deep passes started to drop off six games ago, according to ESPN Stats & Information. That means it started with the Nov. 17 loss in Denver, where it's believed he suffered a pinched nerve in his neck. In fact, he first appeared on the Jets' injury report the week after the Denver game.

    Though he never missed any practice time due to the injury (at least that's what the Jets tell us), a neck/right shoulder injury shouldn't be dismissed as a nothing deal, especially for a right-handed quarterback.

    Facts are facts. Sanchez has regressed on downfield passes this season, completing only 34.9 percent of his throws traveling 15 or more yards. In 2010, his mark was 41.7 percent.Sanchez has specifically struggled over his last 6 games, completing only 17.1 percent of throws on such distances, the worst rate in the league. Obviously, other factors come into play -- namely inconsistent pass protection and the receivers' inability to separate and get deep.

    But don't overlook the neck; it's an issue. Sanchez aggravated it two weeks ago in Philadelphia and he spent countless hours in the trainer's room, rehabbing before the Giants game. (Another reason why passing 59 times made no sense.) Against the Giants, he was 0-for-8 on passes of 15+ yards, including two interceptions.

    Category -- 2010 -- 2011

    Comp pct ... 41.7 ... 34.9*
    Yds/att ....... 11.0 .... 8.3
    Total QBR ... 89.2 .... 55.9

    Last 6 games: 6-for-35 (17.1 percent).

    LOL saying Sanchez 3rd year stats is comparable to Eli is actually a bad thing. Everyone agrees Eli was terrible his first 4 years so all you are doing is confirming that Sanchez is terrible. Just because a QB is terrible in his first three years doesn't mean he is on track to become the next Eli since Eli was also terrible. The logic is so flawed its kind of hilarious people are bringing it up to defend Sanchez.

    The Giants went all in to get Eli and built the team around him to win in the future.

    Sanchez hasn't been asked to carry the Jets. The circumstances are entirely different.

    When is this going to finally stop?
    [/QUOTE]

    When the Sanchez haters get their wish and run the kid out of town. Then they can watch a kid with talent, develop and grow under a different (better) system. Then these same clowns will call for the head of some other scapegoat in the Jets organization.

    It'll be Drew Brees from the Chargers to the Saints except it will be from the Jets to somewhere else watching him hoist a Lombardy over his head.
