Pretty much everyone outside of this fanbase sees Sanchez for what he is right now. A bottom third, inaccurate, turnover prone QB.
Please stop talking about the two AFC Championship appearances as if that's enough to anoint Sanchez as our QB for the next 10 years.
And the whole "he only had 16 starts in college" excuse doesn't fly anymore. The kid has started close to 60 professional games, including the playoffs. Yet the pro game still seems to move 100 mph to him.
Enough with the excuses. Sanchez hasn't performed up to par so far. Rex and Tanny have said as much publicly numerous times. Hell, so has Mark.
Either he becomes a more efficient QB this year, or his career comes to an end in New York and he tries to compete for a starting job elsewhere.
Eli manning has 5. Lets actually get the facts straight before posting.4 road wins, no one else has more.
Dump this thread.
Nothing good can come from this.
This is the key right here. Sanchez doesn't have to become a more prolific passer, he just has to improve his efficiency. Cut down on the turnovers and make better decisions. The Jets aren't Grounding and Pounding by choice, they are doing so because that's their best chance at winning games. If the Jets signed Peyton they'd probably have kept Schotty and gone to a full on aerial attack.
I really do believe Sparano's offensive approach is going to make Sanchez feel a lot more comfortable and help to improve his efficiency. And maybe, just maybe, that's enough.
We don't need Sanchez to develop into a 4,000 yard, 30+ TD passer in order to be successful. That would be awesome if it happens, but it's not essential and it'll probably never happen anyway.
He just needs to improve his accuracy and cut down on the turnovers. Hopefully a more vanilla offense will help him achieve that.
The last 3 Super Bowl champions have had their qb post these numbersWe don't need Sanchez to develop into a 4,000 yard, 30+ TD passer in order to be successful.
So recent history says you do need those type of numbers to win a super bowl.
The AFC Championship talk is weaksauce.
The Jets should sign Donovan McNabb. He led the Eagles to 4 Conference Championships! 4! That's twice as good as two!
Or maybe the Jets can get Neil O'Donnell back. He helped lead two teams to the Super Bowl.
Based on his current body of work, Sanchez would be hard pressed to get a starting QB job anywhere else in the league. Statistically he's near the bottom. On top of that his locker room imploded last year. His job is to be a good quarterback and a good leader. That hasn't happened yet.
If it doesn't come together for him this year, he'll likely be a backup for the rest of his career.
A few plays go a certain way and Brady = Montana. A few plays go the other way and the Ravens are playing the 49ers in the Super Bowl and validating the importance of a strong defense. Whatever. Just media narratives.

You can keep making up scenarios that never happened, or you can look at the facts. The last 3 super bowl champion qb had 30 td 4,000 yards seasons.A few plays go a certain way and Brady = Montana. A few plays go the other way and the Ravens are playing the 49ers in the Super Bowl and validating the importance of a strong defense. Whatever. Just media narratives.
But I don't buy this bullsh*t for one second that "Ground and Pound" is dead and you can only win a championship if you're throwing the ball all over the place.
The Steelers have won two Superbowls in the last 7 years with that philosophy while appearing in another. We made it within 30 minutes of the Superbowl two years in a row with that mindset and we were a couple of blown chances from seeing a San Fran vs Baltimore matchup last season.
Running the football and playing great defense has been an effective, winning formula in this game since its inception. A couple of guys throwing for 5,000 yards isn't going to change that.
If you want to dig into this deeper, start talking about rule changes, QB protection issues, etc. What you said means nothing in terms of talking about football. They are just statistics.

You didn't just quote yourself so that you would have another reason to bump your thread, did you?
No need to answer. It was a rhetorical question.
