Despite having a terrible regular season in his first year, Sanchez still racked up an impressive number of post-season wins.
The Jets are a strong team, and they have no problem building around him.
Age: This kid is only 24 years old.
He's been to the AFC Championship game twice now, and he's only three years older than me. This guy is going to be around for at least 10 more years.
Health: He may not be the toughest QB alive, but he hasn't had any pressing health issues yet.
As long as he has a strong offensive line, he'll be fine for years to come. Someone may want to knock on wood, there.
Resume: Don't look at his regular season stats. If Peyton Manning is currently the king of the regular season, Sanchez is well on his way to being the post-season prince.
In just two seasons, Sanchez has played five post-season games and won four of them.
In those games, he's thrown for 922 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He's not quite up to Aaron Rodgers' numbers, but he's also not as experienced.
If you extrapolate his numbers, three more years might just be what he needs.
As usual, a good team needs to exist around a player to get him into Canton, and Sanchez has experienced veterans, youthful talent and a good coach.
The Verdict: Keep the team together, keep Sanchez on the fast track to success, and punch his ticket. He's young, but he will be in Canton one day.
