    Post New Story: Wake Up Call for the Sanchez Apologist

    Florham Park, N.J.: There are plenty of Mark Sanchez apologists for the way he has played this season.* I'll admit it,* I am one of them.

    You've heard it ad nauseum: Sanchez doesn't have the playmakers around him, the offensive line isn't doing their job, the wide receivers aren't getting open, etc.

    But the excuse heard on television or radio through commentators and ex-quarterbacks alike is how can Sanchez get in a rhythm?* When Sanchez completes a pass and then runs to the sideline for a Tim Tebow run, how can he stay in a groove throwing the football?

    For example: After Sanchez...

    More...

    But of Sanchezís 17 combined Ďmistakesí (INT + Fumbles), only four have come on drives where Tebow was entered for at least one play.
    Well Tebow made him feel all flustered and antsy pantsed probably.
    Also, Tim gets too close when Mark is talking over his next INT with Sparano....give him a lil space #15!!!

    It matters very little if a wildcat player enters or not for Sanchez, perhaps for other types of QB's but not Sanchez. He can throw a great pass on one play and make the most mind numbingly bad play the next and visa versa. He is simply a very inconsistent player, always has been always will be.

    The worst thing about Sanchez is that if the jets are backed up in their own zone or in the redzone fans are now always on pins and needles expecting some kind of disastrous play.

    It's all just not making sense. Sanchez was hitting recievers for 3 years and now he can't hit anyone. Yes there are dropped balls and yes he is inconsistant.

    It's just that the inconsistency has gotten so much worse this year and nobody has an explanation for it.

    Or hasn't it changed and it's really just the combination of the same inconsistency + bad recievers + worse OL + maybe even coaching?

    There are so many jumping to a single conclusion here... I'm just perplexed.

    Whatever about the excuses for Sanchez being Tebows presence, which certainly doesnít help...

    But what about the O-line that sucks and the receivers that cant receive or run proper routes and get open. What about the new offensive co-coordinator that might just be as bad as the last one. What about the complete lack of run game in this offense.

    Alex Smith looked just like Sanchez when the 9ers were controlled by Singeltary and prior to that when he was surrounded by what most people would say is a better O-line and receiving group than we have now and certainly an ok run game with frank gore.
    Back than he was considered a joke and 9ers fans wanted rid of him constantly jeering and wanting him replaced.
    Now he has decent weapons and a very good run game and the O-line is good and he is considered a decent NFL QB. People say he is a "late bloomer", no he aint; he has time on the ball, has some weapons and has a good running game in his offense that's respected and gives him better opportunities when he does throw. And his OC plays to his strengths. Things he didn't have previously, just like Sanchez now.

    Sanchez will never be an elite QB but Iíll bet he will end up being considered a decent QB again at another team that play to his strengths and gives him better opportunities to succeed when we do inevitably give up on him.

    The 2QB concept is the suck; it's harder to figure out than a an offense with a running quarterback (alluding to Vick, Vince Young etc etc etc).
