    Josh Freeman

    This is probably the guy Sanchez should be compared to. He's quietly having a very good year and is developing nicely. His completion percentage isn't where you'd like it to be, but he's averaging a whopping 8.27 yds/a. TB has also done a nice job putting pieces around him -- Mike Williams, VJax, Doug Martin, etc.

    He was also was drafted out of school as a junior and considerably younger than Sanchez.

    Remember, though.....


    He's on a Tampa team that has a REAL HEAD COACH....



    ....A REAL OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR...

    ...REAL FOOTBALL PEOPLE IN THE FRONT OFFICE....


    Oh and BETTER Players surrounding him.





    I think he would struggle here on this circus act in NY.

    I think the "BETTER players surrounding him" covers that.

    Yup, and he [Sanchez] was a better QB in his first two years too. Also, let's not rewrite history, just a year ago some were saying Josh was a bust.

    The reason we chose Sanchez....

    ...was the assessment that Sanchez was the better leader. I believe Rex said one of the big impressions left on the Jets staff was that when they did their private workouts, 22 of Sanchez's teammates showed up to 3 of Freeman's. Unfortunately, I believe Rex and the Jets staff confused popularity with the more important mental toughness. I watched the Inside the NFL mike on Peyton Manning and you see/hear the leadership that the Jets desperately need. All you have to do is watch the sidelines, Sanchez never leads, chides or even argues which explains his popularity. We need leadership more than anything else.

    Yup, the Jets could have selected Freeman without trading up, Mangini got his revenge on trader Tanny by making the deal seem too good to resist...

    Freeman is on his second Head Coach, 2nd or 3rd OC, and has had plenty of roster changes, just like Sanchez...

    Freeman has better stats and Sanchez makes bad decisions under pressure

    That's not true. Freeman out up 25 TDs to 6 interceptions his second year on a ****ty team. Who was he even throwing to? Sanchez hasn't even come close to that.

    This sh!!ty TB team of 2 years ago won 10 games, although it did choke down the stretch. The HC was being praised as the next best thing....so I don't where you get that the team was sh!!ty? Not to mention that in Josh's first season the Bucs were horrible.

    As for stats, they are meaningless. The only stat that matters is wins in any sports. Peyton Manning has all the best stats in the world during the regular season. Yet, when it counts, he is mediocre at best (sub-.500 playoff win record) throughout his 15 year NFL career.

    Yes, stats are meaningless. Sanchez has a better winning % in the playoffs than Peyton. He's a better QB, right?

    Name the receivers on that TB team.

    Wins? Sanchez was just along for the ride. In fact, he's probably cost the team wins, if anything. That 2009 team had a better than 9-7 roster. The 2010 was probably better than an 11-5 team.

    Now, when the team is asking Sanchez to do more, you're seeing how good he really is. 8-8 last year and heading for a top 10 draft pick this year. Meanwhile, TB is set at the QB position.

    How about these receivers?

    Dezmon Briscoe
    Preston Parker
    Micheal Spurlock
    Maurice Stovall
    Sammie Stroughter
    Mike Williams

    25 TD to 6 interceptions with that crew.

    What's your point? He has to throw a few more to catch up to Sanchez.

    19/6 TD/int ratio. Sounds pretty good to me.

    Was I debating that? No. I just mentioned that he just threw a pick 6.

    Get off my dick, mate.

    Freeman wouldn't last a NY minute in NY IMO. I doubt he could handle the media as well as Sanchez..... he's almost crumbled a few times over there in fuarkin Tamba Bay.
