    Smith vs. Sanchez - through first 3 games rookie year

    Smith - 2-1, 3TD, 6INT, 53.9%

    Sanchez - 3-0, 4TD, 2INT, 59.4% (fixed)

    Don't get me wrong, I'm pretty pleased with Gino, and hate that Sanchez regressed, but let's not let facts get in the way of a good story.

    Yea just looking real quick that 88.9% completion percentage is completely wrong.

    Fair point. But I'm pretty sure Sanchez didn't have an 88.9 comp % through first 3 games. I'm guessing that's his QB rating. Geno's is 65.0.

    No doubt about the fact that something happened to Sanchez. Regardless if it was all on him or coaching or whatever that ship has sailed and lets just hope Geno goes up and not down.

    Yup - just fixed. 53.9 vs. 59.4 completion %, QB rating is 88.9 vs. 65.0

    Geno actually has 4 TD's (1 rushing). Watch most of the throws from game 2 vs the Pats. Safe conservative throws are basically the entire game plan. Geno is throwing INT's on passes of 15+ yards

    Another example of why you don't judge based on stats only.

    These 2 QBs are running completely different O's. They're not scaling back for Geno like they did for Sanchez.

    What is is it, a little over 500 passing yards vs 800+???

    The gameplay yesterday had more deep throws than any jets game in the past 3 years.

    And a pick 6 should be a recorded stat.. That's by far biggest mistake for a qb to make..

    When comparing these two QB's this is where stats go out the window, they are meaningless. The fact that Sanchez, over 4 years and more than 50+ games has the WORST STATS IN NFL HISTORY haha, is another story.

    What the Jets have now is a starting QB that is a THREAT FROM ANYWHERE ON THE FIELD, many experts as of today are saying Smith "has a Top 10 Arm", where as Sanchez basically had to "be perfect" to put points on the board due to his inaccuracy and at best average NFL arm.

    Smith is on pace to throw for close to 4,300 yards this season compared to Sanchez 2,400 yards in his rookie year (that was sickening just writing that, thats almost 2x better, is that possible??). Now Sanchez apologists will say,"Well that's because Rex wanted "ground and pound" and Shottenheimer is terrible"...well how come the Jet playbook looks wide open for Smith in just his 3rd game? Answer: He has all the tools a Pro QB would wish to have, the other guy doesn't.

    Completion % does not mean much when you can hit 3 bombs at different points of a game, little Sanchez could never do that.

    And that's another thing, I'm going off-topic, Smith is listed at 6-3, only an inch taller than what they list Sanchez, but he looks much bigger standing in the pocket.

    Not one more snap for the "poser" Sanchez as a NY Jet, and probably in the NFL.

    Sanchez also didn't have to pass in a monsoon in any of his 1st 3 games either.

    Here is another cool stat. Sanchez NEVER had a 11 YPA in a regular season game in his career. The highest he had was 9 YPA.

    Geno is making throws Sanchez never made.
