Don’t tell quarterback Mark Sanchez about the dreaded sophomore slump. In his second NFL season for the New York Jets, Mark Sanchez grew in leaps and bounds, leading his team back to the AFC Championship Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Sanchez was impressive in his rookie season but improved dramatically in 2010. He was better in every aspect of the game after gaining a valuable year of experience, and he has shown the Jets why he is their quarterback of the future and face of the franchise.
The Sanchize, Mark Sanchez, finished 2010 completing 278 out of 507 pass attempts for 3,291 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.
No longer a liability, Sanchez is now the leader of the offense and a quarterback that has grown in confidence since his rookie season. In 2011, the Jets are Mark Sanchez’s team. If they want to win the Super Bowl, Mark Sanchez is the guy that will lead them. So expect another good season from the Jets quarterback.
Here is how he is projected to perform each week of the 2011 season.
