Do you think there's a single person in the Jets organization, outside of Sanchez himself, that doesn't regret that contract extension?
The money is already wasted, continuing to play him would be a waste of valuable time that could be spent developing a QB who might develop into something here.
You'll get no argument from me that the extension was idiotic. I think Tanny should be fired for it.
That doesn't change the fact that it's done, the incoming QB class is weak, and there are no free agent saviors available at QB.
It is definitely not a fact that Sanchez will be the starter next year. His best case scenario will be an open competition with Tebow, but that could open up to another QB taken in the first few rounds of the draft.
The Jets will help the QB by getting Holmes back off the IR. Maybe they'll find a mid-level WR or TE in free agency. But their focus should not be how do we help Sanchez? It should be how do we help the team? Especially where the draft is concerned. They need help all over the roster, and should hold onto their picks and go BAP from start to finish. If they land a WR, great, but it'll also be great if they land a pass rusher, a guard, or a RB.
What rookie QB picked in the middle rounds is going to come in and take over the 10 million dollar mans job? It's nice to think we'll find RG3 in the 5th round but that's not going to happen. The Jets are stuck with Sanchez and there's a 90% chance he'll be the starter.
