Found November 18, 2011 on Pro Sports Daily:
Former New York Jets offensive lineman and current ESPN analyst Damien Woody admitted that quarterback Mark Sanchez is not looking good. "You could make an argument that (Sanchez is) going backwards in his third year," Woody said of the 25-year-old Sanchez. Sanchez struggled again as the Denver Broncos (5-5) rallied for a 17-13 victory over the Jets (5-5) on Thursday. Sanchez completed 24 of 40 passes for 252 yards on Thursday. He was also intercepted, which was returned for a touchdown for the third time this season. Sanchez termed that specific play as "embarrassing." The fifth overall pick of the 2009 draft, Sanchez has completed 193 of 338 passes for 2,333 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Woody retired on July 26 and joined ESPN just over one week later. He referenced several rookie quarterbacks flourishing this season while Sanchez is struggling with his completion percentage.

A Vent On The New York Jets Offense

Let’s start with something comforting Despite a recent rough patch of games, Mark Sanchez still is on the exact same pace that Eli Manning was on to start his career and we see how Eli has turned out.

Sanchez/Tebow: Two Unconventional Winners Share Scrutiny

For Mark Sanchez, two AFC championship games in his first two years as a pro hasn’t been enough to silence his doubters. Tim Tebow took over a 1-4 Broncos team that is now 4-5 under his leadership. Instead of admiring Denver’s re-entry back into the AFC West race since Tebow got behind center, detractors question his ability to throw the football. When the Jets and Broncos take...

Season on the Brink

Well I can’t say I didn’t see this coming, a short week after a deflating Sunday night loss where there were a few key injuries incurred but I’m not going to make this an “I told you so” type of post because those are unproductive and douchey (doo-shee).
