Mark Sanchez is as good as Eli Manning
 
Mark Sanchez vs. Eli Manning Through First 4 Seasons: Stats Matchup Shows Equals

Quote:

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez officially lost his starting job on Tuesday, when head coach Rex Ryan named Greg McElroy the starter for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers.

On the surface, Ryan's decision would appear to be a slam-dunk choice that was long overdue. Sanchez is coming off a four-interception effort that killed the Jets' season, in a must-win game against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

The Jets were eliminated from playoff contention in the 14-10 defeat to the Titans. Adding insult to injury, Sanchez also fumbled away a snap that ended the game deep in Titans territory.

Still, Sanchez needs to be starting for the Jets. Despite suffering through a subpar season, it is only his fourth and he is just 26 years old. When Sanchez is compared to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning at the same age, they are near mirror images of each other statistically.

Taking a look at Sanchez and Manning through their first four seasons at age 26:

Sanchez: 1,832 passes, 1,011 complete, 55.2, 11,887 yards, 68 TD, 68 INT, 72.0 Rat

Manning: 1,805 passes, 987 complete, 54.7, 11,385 yards, 77 TD, 64 INT, 73.4 Rat


By the numbers, and considering how wildly successful Manning has become since, Ryan is making a gigantic, shortsighted mistake by benching his young franchise quarterback now.

Although Manning won a Super Bowl in his fourth NFL season, his level of quarterbacking is eerily similar to that of Sanchez at the same stage of their careers. LMAO LMAO LMAO

If the Jets surround Sanchez with better receivers, who is to say that his numbers will not keep pace with Manning's or even surpass them? Sanchez actually has the higher completion percentage, with more passing yardage, despite having a poor 2012 season.

In defense of Sanchez's 2012 numbers, he has been without his primary receiver Santonio Holmes for most of the season.

Given that Sanchez is owed $8.25 million in 2013, and the fact that he is maturing at the same rate statistically as Manning had, Ryan should reconsider his decision to change quarterbacks now.

Ryan must do right by the Jets and start Sanchez. His statistics, when compared to Manning's, indicate Sanchez can possibly follow the same road to a successful career if given the opportunity to continue growing as a quarterback.

By the four year statistical sampling: Ryan benching Sanchez would be like if the Giants had chosen to bench the young Manning after a slump.

With two meaningless games remaining on the Jets' schedule, Ryan needs to finish what he started with Sanchez.

That means staying the course with his franchise quarterback, not ripping one-eighth of the season, and valuable development time, away from him.

It may not be the popular choice—but it is the right choice.

I've always said eli sucks. So yea.

cosmo20002 12-20-2012 07:22 PM

So, kinda sucking for 4 seasons means you will probably win a couple SBs.
Worst. Logic. Ever.

QBs that win multiple SBs and consistently chuck it for 4000 yards do not suck.

Mr. Kotter 12-20-2012 07:24 PM

Screw Alex Smith....I want Sanchez!!! ;)

...But, hey, trade down 10-15 spots and still take Smith or Barkley for insurance. Just sayin'.

This, of course, AFTER Pioli and Romeo are jettisoned....

Ace Gunner 12-20-2012 07:45 PM

oh ya. bring sanchez here. isn't KC where every crap QB goes before he becomes a successful realtor? what a fit. loser.

BoneKrusher 12-20-2012 08:06 PM

But Eli knows how to drive a CLUTCH.

Bacon Cheeseburger 12-20-2012 08:08 PM

Why are you posting garbage from bleacherreport.com?

Count Zarth 12-20-2012 08:09 PM

Because it's funny.

Flachief58 12-20-2012 08:14 PM

ERMERGERD It's all so clear to me know. They're twins separated at birth. They're Identical in every way. Except for the SB rings and the fact that Eli is a good qb who knows what it takes to win championships, IDENTICAL :facepalm:

kcfanXIII 12-20-2012 08:15 PM

eli is average, his super bowls are a direct result of a great defense. getting hot at the right time also helps a lot too.

ClevelandBronco 12-20-2012 08:18 PM

I forwarded this to Clark. He needs to know this kind of stuff, but I don't think he pays really close attention.

This isn't 10 yrs ago.

You can't just win with a great D.

He may be average during the regular season, but he is elite when it counts.

And that is all that matters.

What Eli does during the regular season is not what matters. When he gets to the playoffs and beyond he's a ****ing machine. He wins when it matters most. Has that magic about him. Sanchez couldn't find magic if it kicked him in his retarded ass.

This. I'd take 10-6 every year if it meant a SB every couple of years
