    He's a tough dude. He needs another baller - Braylon Edwards to fight and catch the deep balls in green and white.

    Not if you look at the 5 yard passes thrown to them that they turned into a 60 yard play.

    Best part of this is that he was a Junior in that game. Had a whole year more to mature and work on his game.

    Like I said before....I've watched every snap. We got a hell of a QB with the 39th pick. Be grateful. However, he has had bad games when it was windy or cold. I know Morgantown can be cold. I lived there for 12 years. Watch the Tex Tech game from last season. He was struggling in the wind. I'm sure he can get over it.
    Good news is he's an accurate passer, he is a student of the game, great work ethic, and contrary to popular belief....he has a great attitude. He's a team player. He's a very quiet guy. And not once in 4 years did he have any off-the-field trouble. He has a ton of potential. Be patient

    From what I understand and could be wrong teams prefer nothing under 9
    That and the fact Sanchez hands are 10 something yet he still has problems fumbling.If they get the ball away before the defence gets there then fumbling ought to be less of an issue

    So because Montana played with Rice, who took many 5 and 10 passes to the house, we should discount his passing ability to, right?

    If you watched the video on Geno that was posted before, I think you would see the perfect placement he put on many passes as well as his ability to get the ball in the narrowest of windows. Not to mention dropping the deep ball perfectly over his receivers shoulder. This kid is a VERY accurate passer who can make all the throws and YES actually helped his receivers to become better. How? By placing the ball where only they could catch it and also getting it to them quick enough to allow them to make a "football move" after the catch. That is a skill our current quarterback is sorely lacking.

    That's the main thing I looked for and was really glad to see, was all the times I saw him put passes in the tightest of windows where a defender was draped all over his receiver, basically like what you see in the pros.

    You can't teach accuracy. You never saw that from Sanchez in his small body of work prior to being drafted, so for anyone to say how great a prospect Sanchez was is a joke. That's why USC QBs virtually never pan out. Their competition is the equivalent of college vs high school.

    Another funny thing, is that Smith actually looks bigger physically than Sanchez, when the listed height/weight has Sanchez ahead in those measurables.

    I wish I could see them both wing it down the practice field at the same time, my bet would be on Smith...easy.

    All this article goes to show how much the Sanchez had skills and the Jets coaching staff hurt him.

    Only the irrational Jet hate obscures this self evident fact that Sanchez was
    hurt by the Jets "coaching"

    Hopefully Marty & co can do better than Schotty & co in developing Geno.

    And if he can help improve Sanchez's play into the bargain, that'd be a real bonus.

    Geno CAN make all the throws. However, so can Mark Sanchez. They're both plagued by inconsistency. Is Geno as sensitive as Mark? Probably not, but maybe. Can Geno improve instead of regress? That's the big question. The talent is there. Sanchez has proven he is not a starting QB in the NFL, at least not for a winning organization. Three or four games with 12 or 13 **** games does not make a good QB. Can Geno Smith do what Sanchez couldn't? That's the question.

    I think Smith is taller then Sanchez

    Team Leader. Rocket Arm. Dead Accurate. The USC Quarterback.

    These are the thoughts that jump into my head when thinking about former USC QB, Mark Sanchez.
    NO, it shows how over the top some are when looking at a college player. It doesn't show how someone was ruined. Funny, its only our coaching staff that ruins a QB, it's not the QBs fault for not developing.

    Exactly...

    You put any of the great QB's under the same coaches and Peyton Manning is still making it to the hall of fame.

    I'm not that worried about him in the cold, but for people pointing out the temperature in Morgantown, please remember the college football regular season wraps up the 3rd week of November. The average high in Morgantown in November is 54, average low 34. That's not the same as East Rutherford the 1st week of January. He's has some bad cold weather games, but no reason why he can't overcome that. Making the jump to the NFL will be more of a worry than the weather.

    Because you said so, it must be true. In the parallel universe inhabited by jetsfan1983 who knows exactly what would happen in hypothetical scenarios and thinks his opinions are 'facts'. You also knew exactly what Mayock would have said if someone else would have drafted Smith. and now people had expectations of sanchez being Peyton Manning?
