Call me crazy, but BUT I THINK MARK SANCHEZ LOSES THE STARTING ROLE OF QUARTERBACK FOR THE NEW YORK JETS WITHIN THE FIRST 8 WEEKS OF THE SEASON.

 

TEBOW TIME has hit the Big Apple, and just like in Denver, the Quarterback position will be a big mess! But we're not here to talk about Tebow. We're here to talk about Sanchez and why I think he'll lose his job so soon.

 

Last year, the Jets had a tough schedule. But more often than not, Sanchez couldn't contribute.

 

-Last year, the Jets (Sanchez in particular) faced 6 teams that were in the TOP HALF OF THE LEAGUE IN PASSING DEFENSES LAST YEAR. Those teams were Jacksonville (8th-208.8 pypg), Baltimore (4th-196.2 pypg), San Diego (13th-224.4 pypg), Washington (12th-222.1 pypg), Kansas City (6th-201.3 pypg), and Philadelphia (10th-212.3 pypg).

 

*Out of those 6 games, Sanchez's passing yards exceded the defenses' PYPG average 0 times. 0-6.

 

-Last year, the Jets (Sanchez in particular) faced 7 teams that were in the BOTTOM HALF OF THE LEAGUE IN PASSING DEFENSES LAST YEAR. Those teams were Dallas (23rd-244.1 pypg), Oakland (27th-251.4 pypg), New England (31st-293.9 pypg), Miami (25th-249.5 pypg), Buffalo (19th-232.1 pypg), Denver (18th-231.5 pypg), and New York (N) (29th-255.1 pypg).

 

*Out of those 10 games, Sanchez's passing yards exceded the defenses' PYPG average 5 times. 5-10. That simplifies to 1-2.

 

Now let's switch to this upcoming year.

 

-In the upcoming season, the Jets (Sanchez in particular) will face 9 teams that were in the TOP HALF OF THE LEAGUE IN PASSING DEFENSES LAST YEAR.  These teams are Pittsburgh (1st-171.9 PYPG), San Francisco (16th-230.9 PYPG), Houston (3rd-189.7), Indianapolis (15th-227.0 PYPG), Seattle (11th-219.9 PYPG), St. Louis (7th-206.3 PYPG), Jacksonville (8th-208.8 PYPG), Tennessee (15th-226.8 PYPG), and San Diego (13th-224.4 PYPG).

 

*If Sanchez went 0-6 against 6 of the top 16 passing defenses in the league, then math says Sanchez should go 0-9 against 9 of the top 16 passing defenses in the league.

 

-In the upcoming season, the Jets (Sanchez in particular) will face 4 teams that were in the BOTTOM HALF OF THE LEAGUE IN PASSING DEFENSES LAST YEAR. These teams are Buffalo (19th-232.1 PYPG), Miami (25th-249.5 PYPG), New England (31st-2939 PYPG), and Arizona (17th-231.0 PYPG).

 

*If Sanchez went 5-10 against 7 of the bottom 16 passing defenses in the league, then math says Sanchez should go 3.5-7 against 4 of the bottom 16 passing defenses in the league.

 

*The Jets, in the first 8 weeks of their season, face 4 of the 9 teams in the top 16. They also have 4 games with teams in the bottom 16. By the math, Sanchez should go 0-4 average wise against the top and 2-4 against the bottom, thus, making him 2-8 in the first 8 games.

 

If you're still reading this (in which case, I commend you for keeping up), my point is this. SANCHEZ CAN'T DO WELL AGAINST GOOD PASSING DEFENSES AND DOES WELL ONLY HALF THE TIME AGAINST BAD PASSING DEFENSES.

 

Sanchez won't be having a good season in the first 8 weeks. By that time, the fans will be egging on for TEBOW TIME, and Rex Ryan will have no choice but to succumb.

 

Call me crazy, BUT I THINK MARK SANCHEZ LOSES THE STARTING ROLE OF QUARTERBACK FOR THE NEW YORK JETS WITHIN THE FIRST 8 WEEKS.

Mark Sanchez is. I think, a managerial QB like titlists Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson. Not expected to put up Brady / Rodgers-like numbers. That run-game is essential to executing this Jets offense. Another mediocre showing by their run-game (NFL ranked 22nd in 2011) and it wont matter who is under center in Jetsland.

Its funny how much slack gets cut guys like Romo, Ryan & Rivers who have never made a conference title game but Sanchez leads Jets to two in three years and many are ready to give him his walking papers.

You are not crazy, SF809. You are a Tebow fan. Fair enough.

It's not even that I'm a Tebow fan. My brother ruined that for me last year when he overdid that whole Tebow Time thing. I just don't think Sanchez can handle the NFL.
