"He always plays at his best when the pressure is on him". As Jets fans we've heard this many times as well as witnessed it. Mark Sanchez seems to always play better in when the pressure is on, I.e the fourth quarter and the playoffs, that is when he is at his best. Now it makes you wonder, why isn't his best required of him every single day? The biggest thing when it comes to playing QB, all the good ones (Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning) always talk about practice and preparation for the reason they are so successful. Now I'm not going to say Mark Sanchez is lazy but do you think if someone was at practice that could out-shine Sanchez in it would light that fire under him that Rex always tries to light by giving Brunell reps? It worked last year because for the first time Sanchez's job was in jeopardy. This year Sanchez looked at it as more of a joke. If we had someone that could legitimately start games for us and do a serviceable job then I think Sanchez would bring his best everyday and thus it would show up on gameday. As LT said competition brings out the best in people and we all know how competitive Sanchez is so it would have to work, otherwise we move in another direction. Now I don't care who it is but it can't be someone that is just a career backup, it needs to be someone that can and has started games in this league. Names that come to mind, Kyle Orton, Jason Campbell, David Garrard, Chad Henne, or even Vince Young ( I personally think this city would cause him to commit suicide....seriously). I also think a new OC greatly benefits Sanchez, the reason being if all of us as fans that aren't getting paid to watch football and analyze it can notice that Schotty never called any plays that played into Sanchez's strengths don't you think Sanchez knew this as well. I don't know if Sanchez went into every game completely trusting the game plan and as a QB confidence plays a huge role in performance. It seems like everyone is split on the Sparano hiring, at first I was skeptical but the more I thought about it I realized that Sparano is exactly what not just Sanchez needed but what our Offense needed. Sparano first off is going to preach fundamentals from day one. Including Footwork, Ball Security, and Time Management. He will teach Sanchez how to prepare as an NFL QB. Sparano will also bring accountability to the Offense which we greatly need, especially at the QB position. If Sanchez isn't practicing well he'll do what no coach we've ever had has done, including Rex, he'll let him know about it. And if it continues Sanchez will work with the 2's. Sparano will also run the football which plays to Sanchez's strengths and hopefully out of all this Sanchez gains confidence. Now if we could get Todd Haley on board to work the passing game that would be huge (hopefully him and Sparano get in Tone's shit). But if we can't get him I'd be okay with Hue Jackson, I just want someone who has experience developing QB's in the building so we know Sanchez is getting proper coaching. I truly believe that Mark Sanchez is the future of this organization, as a fan just watching the game we all know how important this team is to him. He got knocked down countless times via crushing hits(that rarely ever drew a flag) and we watched him scrape himself off the turf and come back out and keep fighting. People say that Sanchez did not improve at all this season but I believe he did. I think Sanchez was the only thing on this team that did get better. If you look at it our o-line was worse, the running game was worse, the receiving core was worse(w/ the exception of Keller), the defense was worse, and even at his own admission Rex Ryan was worse. All in all I can't wait until this season starts because I feel like we'll accomplish great things.
