NFL  > New York Jets  > CINDERELLA SANCHEZ : Time To Return Party Dress
October 2, 2009, 01:27 PM
Everyone loves a good Cinderella Story ~ but it's time to get real .

The Jets have played exceptional and combined with timely schedulin' and fortunate ball bouncin' ... they're 3 - 0 .

There's an old saying "I'd rather be lucky than good " .

So far the Jets have been BOTH.

Sunday in New Orleons that's all about to change.

1) The Saints are a team that is already in mid-season form
( unlike the rusty Texans )
2 ) The Saints are healthy
( unlike the banged up Pats )
3) The Saints are home and in dome
( unlike the stumblin' & punt fumblin' rain soaked Titans )

Sanchez has played well , but there's no denyin' he's also been lucky .
There've been numerous times where he has faltered badly - Only to be bailed out by :
a) Foolish throws ending in EZ Dropped Ints
b) Backfield fumbles bouncin' back to teamates
c) Fortunate Circumstances ( pick 6 against Texans when Jets were up big anyway)

Just this past Sunday against the Titans he athletically scrambles toward the endzone , then blindly sticks the ball out toward the endzone where a defender swats it out of his hands
( again he catches a break as ball is apparently a millemeter over the goaline -disaster avoided )

IN THE NFL THESE BREAKS EVENTUALLY EVEN OUT .

The Jets Organization made a brilliant move in drafting the young Qb and though I'm a die-hard Pats fan - I readily admit that when it comes to how far he eventually can take them :
The Sky's the Limit .

But come THIS Sunday ...

The Clock Strikes Midnight .

( And looking upward from his sad sacked butt on the turf of the Superdome , Sanchez isn't gonna see no blue sky )


PREDICTION :
SAINTS 30
JETS 16

Sanchez - 13 - 29 , 137 yards , 2 ints 1 Fum
