Phil Sims, plunkett, testeverde, Rich Gannon, Kerry Collins and actually Eli Manning.
Playoff performace is not a big enough sample size for comparison. Four seasons is. Garrard is a much better, proven qb than Sanchez.
TDs passing and rushing: Garrard: 82 , Sanchez: 80
Fumbles: Garrard: 35, Sanchez: 43
Interceptions: Garrard: 41, Sanchez: 69
Total Turnovers: Garrard: 76, Sanchez: 112
Touchdowns minus turnovers: Garrard: +6, Sanchez: -32
Garrard is not great, but Sanchez is awful.
I don't hate Sanchez. I hate Sanchez as the QB of the NYJ. He is killing my team.
Mark Sanchez was so bad in his first two regular seasons, the O had to cut the playbook down signifigantly, he was on as short a leash as a Pro QB can be, and he was utterly carried by his D and Running Game.
His entire "legend" is based on two postseasons where he wes merely average. He has no regular season legacy worth note.
A Lie.Fact 2: This team was built to win on Defense and Rushing and the failure of those two areas hurt this team far more than the quarterback did.
The team (like every team) requires all aspects to win. Mark Sanchez was drafted to improve, not remain as bad as he was day one. Mark was expected to develop and grow and become better, to shift some burden from D and RB to himself. Thats what people picked 6th in the draft at QB do, what Franchise QB's do.
He never did, he's worse today that he was when he first hit the league, and he wasn't god enough then either and it shows.
What "anyone with two eyes" can see is that Mark Sanchez is:Anyone with two eyes could see that the offense coming out of Cortland
2. A poor uninspiring leader.
5. Turnover prone
6. Unable to come back when he plays poorly. I.e. Soft.
7. The PRIMARY cause of this teams problems on Offense, the primary problem that creates our lack of scoring, and the primary problem with our supposed lack of "talent" on O.
Mark Sanchez makes the talent around him worse. Not better.
You can mumble on about "coming out of Cortland" and "built to win with D" all you like, it will never change that Mark Sanchez has not, did not, and probably never will develop into anything more than a 32nd rated QB in the league. A career journeyman backup.
We live in the real world.
In the real world, we can either fire the entire staff and 51 players.......or we can replace Mark Sanchez.
Take your pick dreamland, or troll on. Maybee when Mark moves on, you should move the **** along with him. Like the Penningtologists and Tebowites you resemble.

In 2006, Del Rio named Garrard the starter in Week 8 and attributed the change to Leftwich's chronic injury problems...
So 2007 was his first full season as a starter. He started 2007 through 2010. Four years. The same as Sanchez.
First 4, last 4, they are all the same.
Alex Smith.. Still think he is a system QB though.
I am not crapping on what he has done. I am saying it is time to move on.
You asked me my reasoning behind my stating Garrard's worst year was better than Mark's best. Statistically and practically that is true, as I have explained.
I think that the best case scenario is that Geno sits behind Garrard for a year, or at least 10 - 12 games. I think Mark should be traded or released, so as not to splinter the locker room.
My fear is that Mark will win the starting job because:
a) Rex loves him, and
b) Mark is a good "practice" player.
When he wears the red jersey, Mark is good. In a live rush, he is toast. Hopefully Idzik will end the Sanchez "error" before Rex can extend this QB mess.
