The Daily Shoutout: I like Mark Sanchez

OPENING HIT: Yes, I like Mark Sanchez. Not that there's anything wrong with that. And it seems like I'm increasingly the only one. I know Sanchez isn't Joe Montana but I don't get all of the extreme criticism. I think Sanchez is solid, has a decent learning curve, and is a good leader. I do wish he'd stop doing model shoots but I'm not going to hold his pretty boy-ness against him.

Bottom line: some of the criticism of him is a little off base. In all seriousness, some of what's happening with Sanchez is because of where he plays. There's a sort of reverse East Coast bias at work. If Sanchez played in Kansas City, we wouldn't be hearing how he hasn't improved since his rookie year. But he plays in New York so the criticism and harshness is more poignant. There's more media covering him and more media types on the East Coast covering him and the fact he went to a big-time program like USC also factors in. He's one of the most scrutinized young players in the sport.

(Not to mention he has Joe Namath commenting on his play on freaking Twitter.)

He's had shuffling receiver corps, revamped offensive lines and an assistant coaching staff that at times isn't all that good.

Is Sanchez great? No. But let's stop acting he's like Tim Tebow. He's got real non-gimmicky skill. He'll come along in time.

Now about those model shoots...

If he didn't want the criticim he could learn how to read a defense and make some good throws.  The guy is totally clueless and is killing his team.  With a competent QB the Jets could have won an SB the past two years, and maybe lead the division this year.  Just awful.

SECONDLY SANCHEZ OUTPLAYED BRADY IN THE PLAYOFFS LAST YEAR IN HIS OWN BUILDING AND IS THE FIRST QB EVER TO BEAT PEYTON AND BRADY IN BACK TO BACK WEEKS

YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT WINS BEING THE DECIDED FACTOR WELL ITS NO CONTEST

SANCHEZ IS 24-16 AS A STARTER IN HIS CAREER AND 4-2 IN PLAYOFFS THATS 28 WINS

Lol! For me, this article is not even about Mark Sanchez! (but btw, did you watch any of that game on Monday?) So, it's another article about getting in your shot at Tebow. The facts are simple. Tebow has won 3 out of the 4 games he's started, and has rallied his team to 2nd in their division. What matters most in the NFL, or in fact, in any sport? Wins. What keeps your starting job? Wins. What gets you to the playoffs? Wins. Right now, Tim Tebow is winning. That's something you can't argue.

Tebow's spread option offense is not sustainable for an NFL QB.  Too many hits.

He's great for fantasy, and I've started him twice, though this week I'm starting Palmer over Sanchez over Tebow.

At least Tebow can run the ball.  Sanchez can't pass or run.

I think Sanchez is solid, has a decent learning curve, and is a good leader.
Is Sanchez great? No. But let's stop acting he's like .

That's interesting.  Tebow is solid, has a decent learning curve and is a good leader.
Tebow is not doing things to hurt his team's chances yet he's continuously being criticized... especially, when we all know he's not Joe Montana.  

Keep winning, Tim, any way you can.  Create a new "NFL QB" along the way.
