He probably will, but until it actually happens everyone has every single right to keep bashing him. Until he actually does, Sanchez is a sack licker who sucks to unimaginable levels at his job. 

 

I'm glad to see that you finally admit it.  ;-)

If you read his quotes, he's saying, "I liked him as a prospect, and if I was coaching him he would be good." Typical egomaniac head coach-speak. They all think their scouting is flawless and that their coaching can save any player.


That was my take. I took that comment at 100% face value. When the Jets and Sanchez part ways, there will be another coach who will think he can fix him. And another after that.

Yep.  And that's why someone will undoubtedly pick up Sanchez after this season and try to turn him into a backup Jeff Garcia.

Someone's probably already said this, but if Holmgren likes Sanchez that much, let's see what he'll offer the Jets for Sanchez.

Probably won't have to offer anything.

 

Sounds like he is applying for the Jets HC job maybe.   Maybe if he gets it he'll extend Sanchez

He turned down Dick Steinberg all those years ago.

But they didn't have Sanchez back then.   This is the QB Holmgren has been waiting for since 1996

I can't believe how offended some seem to be at the notion that Holmgren disagrees with them. 

 

Yep. Buncha ******* cry babies, it's amazing that grown ass men are the ones behind all these posts.

 

Don't get that logic.

 

if it were politics he would be talking about how much Sanchez sucks to cover his buddy's butt when the passing game falls apart

 

It was said partially tongue-in-cheek, but yeah, Marty may have told Holmgren he's going to have to start Sanchez - and Holmgren might just be trying to give a passive vote of confidence to keep the fans someone sane when they find out.

 

That, or it's an even deeper, darker level of psychology, and Holmgren is praising Sanchez, so that when Geno gets to be the starter... fans are like "ZOMG Holmgren sez Sanchez iz gud so Geno iz BEAST"

 

However you want me to spin it, I'll find a way. Since it's pretty much meaningless sh*t that most here over-react to. LOL

My lack of respect for Sanchez is well documented here but hey, Holmgren thinks he's good. I'm no expert and he is so why not hope he's right?
Stranger things in sports have happened no?

 

 

Seeing as he is most likely going to be the opening day starter, this is probably the healthiest way to look at it.

Weird.  I thought that mentality was exclusive to Rex Ryan.

Good, then Holmgren can take Sanchez and his $6 million salary. Let's see how far Sanchez can take the Seahawks.

 

Personally, I agree that Sanchez can have a fine year. After all, I think ESPN 5 needs a commentator for its NCAA post-game wrap up show at 2am. Sanchez would do very well there.

John Schneider and Pete might have a major problem with Holmgren taking Sanchez to the Seahawks

Maybe Homgren would like to take over another organization in trouble, and would put Sanchez in until a new draftee takes over.

 

Holmgren might figure Sanchez' role this year is the same as Kurt Warner's role with respect to Eli-play for half the year, get replaced in midseason, then move onto another team. The Giants virtually announced that Warner was only there until Eli was ready to take over, and Warner played well before being replaced anyway.  Holmgren might like to get a new team to be on the receiving end of a trade for Sanchez.

Can't read Holmgren's mind, and perhaps The Ape is right," it's an even deeper, darker level of psychology".

 

But until I finish my prophet course, and get fully certified, I'm taking Holgren at his word.

 

“I think actually he’s going to have a fine year,” Holmgren said.   Seems pretty straight forward to me

same question as last summer when all those reports were coming out about mark looking "buff" "in shape" and "confident": can you win comeback player of the year award if all you are coming back from is sucking?

I know Pennington was technically coming back from injury but let's be honest with each other....

Now that I've given this a little more thought I would have to say that even if Sanchez has a lights out, All-Pro worthy season next year he still doesn't qualify for "comeback" player of the year. 

 

He would have had to have had at least one good season first, then suck, then be good AGAIN in order for it be considered a "comeback."

How can you improve on a buttfumble-seems easy enough for Mark to do.

Holmgrem is out of the NFL for a reason, the game has passed him by. The only thing he ever did in football was luck into getting Favre as his QB.
Unless he means that Sanchez will be fine as Genos backup. Even then I don't think he holds a clipboard the right way

he sooo "lucked out" on Hasselbeck as well?
