Even though Fitz sucked over the last half of the season, Sanchez sucked even more, especially in the final 3 games of the season with the playoffs on the line.
Where were all those "come from behind victories" when the Jets needed it the most?
Some quarterbacks — and people — thrive under pressure. So far in his still young career, Sanchez has proven he’s not one of those quarterbacks.
... couldn't disagree more strongly with this statement ...
... sanchez has been very up and down and there are plenty of things we'd like to see him do better ... but picking his game up when the pressure goes up is what i believe to be his greatest asset ...
Your act is old and tiring...why don't you go bother someone on a Fins board for a while and give us a break as long as none of the mods here have the guts to give you the banning you so richly deserve...............
Mark must play better. he has the skills, he needs to step up and I love Sanchez but I lve my children too. they aren't playing.
He's by no means an elite QB, but whoever thinks that he doesn't thrive under pressure has not watched him over his brief 3 year career. He has 11 come from behind/final drive wins in his 3 year career. In comparison to someone like Tom Brady, a HOF shoe-in, who has 35 of those in his 12 year career (say 10 years for the two years he didn't play - one he sat on the bench, the other via injury).
Sanchez 3 years, 11 victories
Brady 10 years, 35 victories
The percentage there paints a clearer picture. What percent of his total wins, were Brady's 35%? Much less than Sanchez's 11 to his total wins.
Accuracy, decisions and turnovers have been Sanchez's problems over the years, but to question his ability to step up when things are on the line are being based on his last 3 games where the entire team imploded is just a writer who reads the box scores.
Why don't we just make Brady a Superbowl choker since he lost his last 2 to the same team? We all know he's not, but the front-running media can't call things fairly.
When teams start doing stunt blitzes, pressure from the outside, CB and satety blitzes, Brady eats them alive.
There is no QB in the NFL that steps up into the pocket and slides better than Brady.
With that said, Brady is toast if the pressure comes from directly up the middle (like the Giants were able to do the last 2 Super Bowls). Brady has absolutely no mobility in the pocket if he can not step up.
Every sports writer in the country better offer an apology when the Bills win 6-8 games this year.
Never have I seen such fabricated hype for a team that hasn't had a winning record in a decade.
If Coples pans out, the Jets will improve tremendously. One elite player makes everyone else around them better.
Honestly, I'm expecting the defense to be way better this coming year than recent years. They seem focused, as does Rex (crazy, right)?
It seems like they're doing the things they need to do.
