I have heard many people say that March Sanchez regressed last season, but I disagree.
The New York Jets regressed as a team compared to Sanchez's first two seasons. However, Sanchez as a player did not regress, and his statistics prove that.
Obviously statistics aren't everything, but they do mean something.
In his first season, Sanchez threw 12 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. In his second season, he threw 17 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Last year, Sanchez threw 26 touchdowns (which was ninth in the NFL) and 18 interceptions.
His passing-touchdown total has gone up significantly each season. While his number of interceptions did increase from his second season to his third, seven of the 18 picks he threw last year were in the last three games of New York's collapse.
Sanchez's passing yards per game, quarterback rating and completion percentage have gone up each season.
