Before you take this the wrong way and call me a "Mark Sanchez hater," I'm not knocking him or calling him a bad quarterback. I think Sanchez is on his way to being in-between good and great. With that being said, how can you make the case that he's better than Aaron Rodgers?
Call it flavor of the month or whatever you want, but until proven otherwise, Rodgers is as good as a quarterback can be. I won't get delirious and put him above Tom Brady and Peyton Manning—yet—but behind those two, he's next on the list.
Rodgers can really do everything as a QB. He can throw the ball, having thrown for 4,000 yards or close to it in each of his first three full seasons.
Not only can he throw the ball which every QB should be able to do, but he throws it perfectly. Instead of making his receivers have to jump or dive for passes, he throws the ball right in between the numbers on the jersey.
He's as accurate as you can possibly be.
Want to know about his quality of mobility? That's not bad either. Rodgers had a stretch of four straight games rushing the ball for 20 yards or more during the season. He also had a 12-carry, 51-yard game against the Falcons in their regular season meeting. Against the Bears in the NFC Championship game, he ran for 39 yards on seven carries.
Rodgers just seems to be the perfect package, and he proved it by winning the Super Bowl MVP award, a feat that not even Brett Favre accomplished.
Now, tell me that Sanchez can do all of what Rodgers can do.
I don't think you can.
Starting off with the mobility portion of the debate, there were four games this season in which Sanchez ran for negative yardage.
Against the Colts in the first round of the playoffs, he had a terrible time accurately passing the football, having his throws sail high frequently.
Sanchez can have stretches of brilliance such as he did through the first five games of the season—not throwing a single interception. Then he can have stretches of inconsistency, as he did for most of the rest of the season after Week 5.
He did outplay Tom Brady in the playoffs, and that was perhaps the best game of his young career.
What Rodgers is, is much more complete than Sanchez.
He does it every game, and at the end, that's what wins you championships. That's exactly what the Packers did that the Jets couldn't.
