Is Mark Sanchez any good? Maybe it is just me, but I don’t think anyone can answer this question.
In a season in which Sanchez has looked less-than-spectacular, it was more of the same on Monday night.
Looking around the league and seeing guys like Andy Dalton, Cam Newton and Matt Stafford showing flashes of greatness, it makes me think, "is Sanchez just not that good?"
It is possible he has maxed-out. This is his third year as a starter, and can anyone say definitively that he is a much better player than he was in the first year the Jets went to the AFC title game?
Looking at his numbers, you wouldn’t think so.
Across the board there is not much more than minimal improvement in many key areas of his game. In areas such as completion percentage, yards per attempt, interception percentage and yards per game he has made either little or no improvement over time.
Have we just overrated this guy because of his looks and the success his team has enjoyed? Maybe. He needs to prove that stigma wrong, because it is starting to become popular belief among many observers.
