When I wrote of my appreciation for the New
York Jets earlier in the season, I mentioned that their biggest
liability was their rookie quarterback from USC. I knew he was
inexperienced. What I didnít realize was how inept he is. He canít read
defenses and, to be charitable, his accuracy doesnít make anyone think
of Ken Stabler.
A few years back, the New York Giants benched
Hall of Famer Kurt Warner in favor of the potential of Eli Manning. Even
though Warner is among the top four quarterbacks in the league, behind
Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, and on a par with Bret Favre, Eli has
developed into an exceptional quarterback, so that decision was probably
a good one, given their relative ages.
Sanchez is no Manning. He doesnít have the
arm, but more important, he doesnít have the eye or instinct. He isnít
even trained in the basics. Watch him run with the ball. He holds it
like heís carrying a cat, with one hand. Last week, he did that and had
to switch hands, so he held it like he had the cat in the other hand. I
learned how to hold a football in junior high school, but I already knew
how. How can a guy, a quarterback no less from a major college
(well, I guess USC is considered a major college, even if they don't
teach the fundamentals of football), get into the NFL and not know how
to hold a football?
Even so, the Jets have a shot at making the
playoffs because there has never been a year when there have been more
horrible teams in the NFL.
The truly awful:
(proving that the talking heads know virtually nothing about their sport
because they all thought
Tennessee was a playoff-quality
The just awful:
New York Jets (anybody who canít beat Buffalo shouldnít even
be this high)
(lotsa talent, not much coaching; how stupid can you be to get rid of
