The band is reported to have continued doing their job in order to maintain some kind of sanity while the ship went down. While the world around them was crumbling, they did their job successfully. This is not Mark Sanchez. He's more of the guy in the engine room who continued to feed power to the engine that drove the Titanic into the iceberg.
So yeah, I don't really get the reference. It doesn't make any sense.
well....Kris isn't exactly known for being smart.....he was a Football player once, I heard...
"Watching Mark Sanchez play QB was like watching the band play while the Titanic sank"
That was funny.... You have to laugh, I mean after that mess of mushroom barley soup with borscht that we just watched, you have to laugh..
Terrible metaphor, it makes no sense whatsoever. Mark does not = the band. Mark = The titanic. So watching Sanchez play QB would be like watching the Titanic sink, not the band play.
The metaphor would better suit the Pats, or any other team winning only because of the dominance of a player in the latter part of his career. As the Pats dynasty continues to eak out wins due to Brady's flawless play, I would say Pats fans are watching the band play (brady) as the titanic (Pat dominance) sinks.
Yeah, his analogy was off, think what he was trying to say (and I agree with) is that the Jets are the Titanic, Sanchez is just part of the problem. The whole team sucks - terrible on offense, defense and special teams. And terrible coaching, yesterday's game is what we get after a bye week? ****ed up
I'm definitely in favor of drafting a new QB next year but I know the game well enough to know that a new QB isn't going to solve the Jets problems, they go well beyond Mark Sanchez.
