4 ugly interceptions and a fumbled snap towards the end of the game to kill the Jets last hope of winning the game.
I feel bad for the guy but he just doesn't look like an NFL quarterback right now.
Sometimes, you just know when the eyes have it.
He's become a turnover machine--both picks and fumbles--and not just in this game. At this point I think he'd be better off somewhere else, but the Jets probably will keep him to avoid the massive cap hit they'd take by trying to trade, etc.
Help A Better LA bring peace to the South LA community. Are you in?
He sure looked like an NFL QB his 1st 2 years, especially in the playoffs.
But his WR core, RBs, and OL were just SLIGHTLY different those 2 years.
He's trying to do it himself and its lookin ugly.
Tebow must be pretty horrible to not throw him in there.
That whole team is a joke. Starts at the top and trickles all the way down. Rex is a fool.
Tebow didn't complete a pass but had a higher QB rating then mark...ouch
His wide receivers cannot get any separation. B. Edwards is a cast off from the Seahawks and he is starting. Mark was throwing into double and triple teams. It made me sick watching this game. I think he is under so much pressure because he is trying so hard. He pretty much telegraphed is four INTs. His receivers did not help the cause.
He definitely showed promise his couple of years and I was excited for his future then.
But I can't believe how much his overall play had regressed, especially now in his 4th year. It just doesn't look like he has any confidence out there.
But you could be right, maybe it's just the whole team has changed around him and not necessarily for the better.
He really makes stupid decisions which costs him time and again. Do they have a qb coach back there cause Mark can't figure it out himself. He throws into double coverage all the time. Mark tends to get down on himself and needs a sports psychologist to help himself. He could have benefitted from staying his last year at USC honing his craft. Amazing at 26 that his career is about over in New York.
I agree he doesn't have the weapons around him.But, at the same time, he doesn't help the situation.He had a wide open rb about seven yards in front of him on his last pick.Why not dump it off to the rb with two mins to go and two timeouts?The kid just doesn't have any pocket presence at all.I knew my Jets screwed by selecting him that high in the draft.Oh well, time to draft another qb.
Tough one to watch, being the number one qb in the league with 50 turnovers with Rivers a close second at 47 does not bode well for MS. Wish him luck and it will be desperately needed.
He's definitely starting to have the David Carr feeling just taking to many hits, no time, and a coach that is like a 6 year old putting together a team.
Just all the way around Ryan needs to get out of NY. He made that team a side show of his and it back fired on him and thats what the players look at him as a side show.
Yep. He has pretty much lost it. I see him becoming someone's back up if he stays in the league. I see they have decided to bench him.
Heard on the radio last night that Sanchize was responsible for 50 turn-overs the past 2 seasons. YIKES!
He needs to go to a different team, where he might have a coach that actually teaches him.
FWIW, CPC did tell him that he wasn't ready for the NFL when he declared.....
I wouldnt mind having him in GB as the back-up.
That was 4 years ago. Time to throw that tired excuse away.
I only point that out, because he wasn't ready to enter the NFL in 09 and then got no coaching for the past 4 years. Had he stayed at SC one more year, it would have been one more year of coaching than he's had now.
Sanchez has always been bad. I'm shocked some of you guys are just getting the memo.
No kidding. He had a couple good games as a Trojan (Oregon and Penn State in '08). Other than that, he was nothing to write home about.
I could never understand why people were clamoring for him over Booty.
He got no coaching the last 4 years? Ironic that you say that had he stayed 1 more year at SC that it would have been one more year of coaching. Brian Schottenheimer was supposedly PC's #1 choice to replace Sark as USC OC.
For a 1st year and 2nd year QB that had 1 year starting experience in college he was GREAT!!
A QB had never started after so few college starts.
Throw in great playoff wins in hostile environments:
@ Cinci looking better then Palmer
@SD Super Bowl favorite and vs the best D in the NFL throwing big clutch passes in the 4th to win!
Loss @ Indy in the AFC Champ game putting up very solid #s with the Super Bowl on the line.
Revenge @ Indy beating the defending AFC champs, Sanchez CLUTCH on game winning drive.
@NE best team in the NFL In a crazy hostile environment. Sanchez throws 3TDs 0 Ints. As he curb stomps Tom Brady in his own house.
@PITT AFC Champ game, toughest place to play in the NFL. Has a damn good game vs the best D in the league, outshines Big Ben but the Jets big comeback falls short.
After 2 years, people were excited about this kids future!! The bigger the game the better he played!! Now he's got real experience, let's see what he can do!!!
Last 2 years = one of the worst Olines, WR core, and RB stable in he NFL.
ZERO talent around him = Sanchez trying to do too much. His confidence is now shot.
I wasn't really talking about him in College though. I'd argue the Jets won his first 2 years because of their defense not Mark. He has never been anything more than functional at best IMO.
Not trying to be a Sanchez apologist here, but it's not just him that is the problem. It is also the personnel around him, particularly at OL and WR.
I agree, Bill. I'm out here in Jersey right now, and the NY media is saying they don't want another USC QB within 500 miles of the city limits!!!!
Markie can console himself with that next $8 million he's guaranteed.
Join the fight for YOUR liberty!
Pete Carroll was right. After only 1 season as a starter in college, Mark was not ready for the NFL. The Jets made the playoffs in the first two years because they had somewhat better offensive weapons, and a great defense. All that Mark was asked to do was to manage the offense and not make mistakes. He was successful at it. Now he needs to make plays, and he forces things. Some of those interceptions Sunday were absolute futile attempts to force passes into double coverage. Mark Sanchez needed time to develop as a QB and he did not get that. I doubt he will ever recover.
I hope that whomever drafts Barkley does not force him into a starting position right away, or he too may go the way of Sanchez.
It is sad, but there is not a former USC QB in the NFL now that is doing well. The closest thing is Palmer with the Raiders, and he is average at best. Quite frankly, a few offensive and defensive lineman, the 2008 linebackers and Reggie are the only former USC players doing much in the NFL these days. Anthony McCoy seems to be coming into his own of late. Joe McNight has had some success as a spot player with the Jets. But nary a non Reggie running back, and not a single wide out are among the impact players in the NFL today that are from USC.
Why is that?
So many of these young kids are playing pretty well as rookie's.
