"[Sanchez] would be the starter for us as soon as he walked in the door"

It's the JN way because of people like you.

I wasn't this way when I was young and beautiful. You are to blame. You made me this way.

You should have aged better.

Oakland?

Cleveland?  Probably not...dont think Lombardi would make such a claim.

Jax?  He's not better than Henne and they're all about an open competition, so doubt Caldwell would say that.

Houston?  maybe

Min?  Not better than Cassell

St. Louis?  Maybe with the Schotty connnection

I think its the Raiders. Sanchez is a Cali guy and would fit in with the misfits in Oakland. Plus, he would get to throw a couple of pick sixes against the Jets.

If he does go to Oakland, they should look to also add Jamarcus Russell, and if that doesn't work, you can always give Ryan Leaf a call.

So, yeah, Sanchez didn't cost Rex two Super Bowl appearances.

 

He was easily the weakest link on two Super Bowl-caliber rosters.  You've said it before, no HC can win a title with a "C" QB anymore.  Sanchez was an "F".  Rex hitched his wagon to the wrong QB, but your boy Idzik didn't think that was a good enough reason to jettison him.

Geno was our QB this year....it was only Idzik's first year as GM...how do you judge someone for something committed in the past when this year he was using the GM's guy?

Very interesting, just as the reactions around here will be.

The vets out there are terrible. It's not hard to make a case that Sanchez (at a significantly reduced rate) is their best veteran option. Young, has won some (playoff) games, knows the system. I'm not advocating it -at all- but I can see the argument.

The draft will also be interesting. Jets have a lot of picks, but they're not currently in position for one of the top QBs this year, and (maybe) outside of Bridgewater, they all have question marks of their own. Do they spend a second or third rounder on an even more questionable QB? Or do they go with a safer pick at another one of their many needs? Any QB taken in the first four rounds will be a story around here, and a perceived threat to win the starting job.

And the thing is, the Jets need a QB (or two) who is a threat to win the starting job. I'm sure Idzik hopes that Geno is the answer. That he'll at least be a competent starter. With so little out there in terms of potential replacements, it'll be very interesting to see how he addresses it.

That would not surprise me at all with the way our FO operates.  He would also likely beat out Geno if give the oppurtunity.

I'm just hoping we also address QB in the draft.

Sanchez's career playoff numbers are a solid B.

That's true, it was only the one time that Sanchez was by far the most significant reason amongst many that cost the Jets an appearance.

 

The other time he merely was a contributing factor in the overall failure.
