I just believe that we've seen enough of him to know that under circumstances that any team needs to win a Championship (good running game, good OL, good WR's) that he has an uncanny 4th quarter ability and is money in big-pressure games.
Some want him gone, I want him to get another year with a real coordinator, a new HC, and some offensive weapons. I don't think I'm being unrealistic in that regard.
Mark Sanchez is 26 years old, has 3.5 years of NFL experience, can only throw the ball to the weaksauce receivers his head coach has provided him, can only stand behind the porous OL, can only watch the RB's get no yardage.
Rex can't make it work despite all the tools to succeed. Mark might be able to make it work if given the tools to succeed. Dump Rex, keep Mark.
DUMP RE-DUMP and RE-RE-DUMP
The 1st time for SOJF squishiness/loserdom
the 2nd time for directing extra attention to the least needy among us
3rd for the creepy gheyness
You can't teach someone to make a 5 yard completion.... you gotta be born with that ability.... LOL
Sanchez.. Sucks. (.) period.
and as far as "weaksauce" receivers. if there open on a 5 yard play... gotta make that play.
And to be quite honest. For some reason he is good (sometimes) in the clutch..
and i believe this happens because he doesn't have time to sike himself out.
remember there has been just as many games where he could have won the game verses how many times he's actually came through.. so he has lost more games then he has won in that regard.
Big picture here folks..
You could put Calvin Johnson on this team and Mark would still find a way to overthrow him or skip balls at his feet.
And this sh*t about our OL being terrible is totally overblown. Half the sacks this kid takes are his own damn fault. No internal clock and literally zero pocket presence.
Good QB's can feel the rush coming, Sanchez is totally oblivious to it.
How you could hate Pennington so much but defend to the death a QB who has consistently ranked in the Bottom 3 among starters since entering the league is beyond me.
This is what SAR was right about (and I think he may have even said it back in year 1 of Rex):
(paraphrasing)Rex is a star, burning brightly, but bright stars can only burn for so long. We have to win right away with Rex because his demeanor means that he will flame out quickly if we squander this opportunity.
I remember reading that, knowing it was true and hoping that it wasn't.
It was. Rex is almost out of hyrdogen.
A dying star can fade away into a dwarf star, collapse in on itself to form a neutron star, or explode in a supernova. I think we all know which of those endings Rex is headed for.
A Top 5 offensive line.
A Hall of Fame running back.
A two-headed running attack with a bullish bruiser as a finisher.
A pass-catching scat-back to dump off to in times of trouble.
A set of steady WR's with which to bond over time.
A head coach that wasn't hell-bent on ignoring the offense completely.
Mark Sanchez had bits and pieces of that here and there during the first two seasons, nothing like that cache at all during the last two seasons.
Chad Pennington had all the tools in the world to succeed and didn't.
Mark Sanchez is handicapped by a horrific set of skill players and can't.
Not sure how anyone can consider Sanchez a game manager. He can't read defenses. Heck, he can't even remember what play he called. ( Excuse # 5,864)
QB, HC, GM, OC, OL, WR
Take your pick.
Sanchez had a better team around him his first two seasons. He had the league's top rated running game and defense. Sanchez never had to carry the team. They won despite him not because of him.
Pennington was smart and accurate. Sanchez is dumb and inaccurate.
