I really love the usage of the All-22 film that's now available to fans to point out that Sanchez is bad because he's inaccurate and a terrible decision-maker rather than because "his WRs are garbage and never get separation"
People dont want to admit when something is over. They think back to 3 or 4 years ago, the good times. They want that to come back so they hold on longer then they should.
Its like when you were dating that girl and it was good in the beginning and then it went to sh!t. You hold on a few months too long thinking that the good times will come back.
Its understandable. In a few years, these sanchez supporting fools will look back and say, man he stunk so bad towards the end.
Sanchez has lead the offense to one touchdown or less in 6 out of the 12 games so far this season.
But yet, it's Rex's and the defenses fault.
The only thing Rex should be blamed for is keeping that hot steaming pile of garbage still in there.
People seem to forget how we couldn't score against the Ravens and the Packers at home that year.
People just look at the playoffs and see what the team accomplished and put it all on Sanchez.
He did have a big run, but it was a great supporting cast around him.
Now we have new people here this year, in his 4th year HE HIMSELF should be THEIR supporting cast. He's now a 4 year vet. He should be elevating his teammates play around him.
But sadly he's not.
The more footage that gets released of Sanchez being oblivious to primary-read open-receivers down field, the more I can understand where Santonio Holmes was coming from last season.
Not saying Santonio isn't a complete d*ck (he definitely is), but like Keyshawn said, "just give me the damn ball." Sanchez can't get that job done.
Shame that we didn't cut bait earlier and steal Russel Wilson.
When you QB can't break 60% completion percentage and regularly limits Yards After Catch with throws behind on completions then there's major issues.
The article isn't bad, but ever since he's been here I've pointed these things out and the Buttchez Defense Crew (BDC) is always quick to tell me that Fantasy football and the NFL are two different things.
Well no **** you morons, that doesn't change anything about Sanchez.
If you can't complete 6 out of every 10 passes you attempt you aren't a NFL QB.
SAR does this every year. Look back at the archives, it's rather humourous at times.
He'll strongly deny it of course, but like seeing Sanchez for what he is, a smart poster also can see what their fellow posters are all about after a while.
Great article. Here was my favorite quote:
I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry...The Jets' efforts to protect Sanchez from risk miss this point: Any pass Mark Sanchez makes is risky. What makes Sanchez disastrous is that so many of his passes are low-reward. He gets picked off on the checkdown plays.
But Eli is in his 9th year.
Give Sanchez some time. In Year 9 he will be better than Eli.
Rex blew this season before it even started. The defense was fully reloaded and failed miserably in the two most important games of the year that ultimately will cost us a playoff spot.
SAR feels that he has seen enough good in Mark Sanchez back when he had talent around him to give him a second look with a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, a good running back, and a consistent set of receivers that are better than the crap we have now. It's very hard to find a franchise quarterback, or even an above average quarterback that has a penchant for winning late games and pressure playoff road games. Before we throw him away, SAR would like to see if perhaps it is the talent around him that is the problem and not Mark Sanchez himself. We are going to be rebuilding for the next 2-3 years anyway, might as well give our quarterback a second look.
Mark Sanchez is Rex Ryan's hand-selected quarterback. He loved him, he courted him, he's the reason that Mark is a New York Jet. No different than Ducasse or Coples, or any of the other people that Rex decided he could mold into a great player and hasn't.
Mark's failure is a bigger reflection on Rex Ryan then almost anything else he's ever done except for the craptastically lousy defense whose best players were drafted by Eric Mangini and whose weakest players were drafted by Rex Ryan.
San Diego Chargers
St. Louis Rams
Green Bay Packers
New York Giants
New England Patriots
New Orleans Saints
I think he is going to get another shot next year. It just cant be Rex/Sanchez. That ship has sailed.SAR feels that he has seen enough good in Mark Sanchez back when he had talent around him to give him a second look with a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, a good running back, and a consistent set of receivers that are better than the crap we have now.
A new GM, head coach, o coordinator will come in with no preconcieved notions, no expectations about players. They open up the qb spot as an open competetion. Mark, Matt Moore, Big Mac and a draft pick. Just like mangini did in 06. Let the best guy have the job.
It just cant be a Rex/Sanchez combo. Too much history bad history there.
We found one in chad pennington. We just didnt know his shoulder was going to become a problem. If chad had the health of Eli manning, he might still be our qb.It's very hard to find a franchise quarterback, or even an above average quarterback...
