ESPN Rates Sanchez As One Of The Worst Ever

Well, it didn't take long. Three days after the debacle against the Baltimore Ravens where QB Mark Sanchez was just 11 of 35 for 119 yards, 1 INT and 3 lost fumbles, an ESPN study showed that Sanchez's performance was the worst one for a quarterback in recent history. "Over 46 plays, Sanchez rated an 0.6, the worst of any quarterback involved in 40 or more plays in a game over the last four seasons. There were more than 900 such games over this stretch."

Also, Sanchez's passer rating of 30.5 ranks tied for 13th-worst among Jets quarterbacks in the history of the franchise.

In a separate article ESPN compared the three quarterbacks selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Detroit's Matthew Stafford was selected at #1, Mark Sanchez was picked at #5, and Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman was chosen at #17 overall. It probably doesn't come as a surprise that Sanchez is rated the worst among these players.

Sanchez fell into a situation where he came to a team that had a good running game and good receivers," Softli said. “He just had to manage a game, and now things seem to have changed. I don't think he's a guy that can win on his own and win big. Can he develop into that? Probably yes. But he's not there yet."
