Mark Sanchez named Jets starting QB

saw it on espn's ticker


I didn't think he should start. What do you guys think, will he have a Matt Ryan year?

No, he won't at all compare to Ryan. As far as starting, it tells me how bad Clemens is. He has a good line and good running game. If they are smart with him and play very conservatively I think he can have moderate success this season, hide him if you will. Long term I don't think he'll be anything special.

Sanchez is going to have a very very good year and a decent career.

I agree completely.
He won't match Matt Ryan's rookie stats, but Sanchez is a better QB than all the other Jets Qbs.

I think he'll do fine in the long run but I agree they need to basically hide him for now. Especially due to the fact that he doesn't have the best group of WR's. Matt Ryan had Roddy White, so I would have to compare Sanchez more to how Bmore handled Flacco.

I agree, and I thought he played pretty decent vs. the Ravens starters. He may not light it up this year, being in a division with Tom Brady doesn't help either.
Sounds like the same situation Alex was in. Throwing him out there to the wolves, with no weapons around him.
I have a feeling that he's going to struggle this year and grow through some growing pains.

Either way, i'll be keeping a close eye.

I wouldn't go that far. he has at least a top 10 Oline, the leading rusher from last year and leader overall the last 3 years, and Washington was in the tops for all purpose yards. He shouldn't be bombarded with that line like Alex and David Carr were. Now to say he looked decent against the ravens, he looked pretty terrible. His 1st 2 throws should have been pick 6s. He was saved on the night because of Washington. After playing one season in the pac10, he's going to have serious trouble against all the defensive fronts and speed because he has never seen them.

There's no growing through those pains in New York. The media/fans will eat him alive.

I think your over stating the word "decent", sure he made mistakes, but he did look poise at times and even had a nice pass for a TD, something Jason Campbell and Todd Collins were unable to do.
D'Brickashaw is a good pocket protector though, so he just needs to learn the playbook, get rid of the nervousness and play .










Only thing is that the media is trying to turn him into the next Joe Namath ( hollywood wise)
I am an SC fan, this kid is special.
It's going to be interesting to see how this works out for the Jets. I hope he's not boing to be fed to the wolves.
