That $8.25M guaranteed has never looked so great

That ending was so, so fitting.

One thing that really surprises me (sort of, anyway) in the NFL - the number of coaches, GM's and fans that cling to young QB's and have the "let's just give them one more year" type attitude (Ponder, Locker, Sanchez pre-2012)

Seriously, how many high caliber or even 2nd tier NFL QB's didn't show a ton of promise very early on? How many in the last 20 years were "slow starters"? Sure, all young QB's make their mistakes and have bad starts - Peyton Manning was pretty bad as a rookie. But even with the bad stats, you could tell that he had "it."

Peyton Manning had the legitimate excuse that he was on a largely talentless team. They had a few good pieces at the skill positions, but were otherwise bereft of talent. Honestly, if I was GM of a team that didn't have a top tier starter in place at QB, I'd be drafting one every year until I caught lightning in a bottle. With the current rookie salary pool rules, there's little risk in taking that approach, even near the top of the draft. The only guy that started slow and blossomed into something great in recent memory is Drew Brees, and he didn't really hit his stride until he hooked up with Sean Payton. Other than that, every quality QB currently in the league was showing themselves to be a legitimate NFL starter by their second season.


Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo... :wink:

By their second season STARTING, which was implicit. Hard to show you're legit on the bench.

Also, if you go to NFL's gamecenter on their website, the highlights for this game are all Sanchez picks. Absolutely hilarious.

The Sanchez/Ryan era of Jets football needs an all-encompassing nickname. Any suggestions?

It's the Buttfumble era. Done and done. Nothing will ever top that.

In addition to the 17 INTs in 14 games this season, Sanchez has 12 fumbles this season. A total of 109 INTs and fumbles in his 4-year career

What's amazing are the Jets fans who defend him. Not the occasional wacko, but scores of them. Anyone who trots out that tired old canard about New York fans being so knowledgeable deserves to be locked in a room with that stupid J-E-T-S chant on infinite repeat. No knowledgeable fanbase would ever defend and put up with such a loser for so long.

Giggles? I was literally laughing out loud at that last turnover for the Jets. I won't stop chuckling all night.

Still a better joke than Sanchez is a QB.

Laughing Laughing Laughing

I'll say this: Sanchez is perhaps the least enviable position of any starter QB in football. Seriously, I cant think a QB with worse surrounding talent.

It isn't even close. Jeremy Kerley & Shonn Greem are the offenses best skill players. Laughing

Not insinuating Sanchez would be any good with legit talent around him, but it is worth noting.

The buttfumble, instant classic. I did like the dirty Sanchez nickname though. Laughing
