Yes, I know that Sanchez made it to the AFC Championship game as a rookie, and then he made it again the next year.
And, he has started every game of his career.
But lets not kid ourselves, Sanchez has only thrown 55 touchdowns compared to 51 interceptions and 12 lost fumbles.
Additionally, he has never eclipsed 3,500 passing yards in season and has been carried by a strong defence and strong running game his entire career.
At the 2009 Draft, the Jets needed to grab a franchise quarterback, so they traded their first and second round pick along with three journeyman players to the Browns to move up to the fifth pick and draft "Sanchise."
But what if the Jets had stayed put at the 17th pick? They could have selected Kansas State star quarterback Josh Freeman and been just fine.
While essentially carrying the Buccaneers for the past two seasons, at times Freeman has shown that he can be a true franchise quarterback in the NFL.
The Jets would be a different team if they selected Freeman, and it would be interesting to see them in the playoffs with an actual quarterback.
