Based on 2009 season, Not on potential
12) Eli .
Those are from my top 15 list and i think thats pretty spot on. This may be a little more controversial
Cutler demanded a trade and played his worst as a pro.
watch a game sometime, seriously.
cutler was relied on to carry an offense with very inexperienced weapons, poor blocking, and a non-existent running game.
from a pure production standpoint, he mass outproduced sanchez and henne.
not only did he still have a higher QB ratin than both, he threw for about 1000 yards more, and had more than twice as many tds.
from a skill standpoint, its not remotely close either.
Again Marks numbers are really really bad because of a couple doozys which is not suprising as a rookie. Think about this: 5 picks vs Buffalo, 4 vs the Pats and 3 vs the Falcons and Saints. So in just 4 bad games Mark had 15/20 picks he threw this year. He really weasnt as bad as his numbers suggest.
Next year with TJ potentially gone, expect him to pass a lot more, especially with a year under his belt
You're right about sanchez' stats being bad because of some really bad games. the problem i see is he didn't really have any really good games outside of a decent game against miami and the playoff loss against indy. If i were a jets fan and found out he was going to throw a lot more if they lose jones i'd be worried.
And Sanchez has only gotten better. He did a good job managing the ball, his cinncinatti game in the playoffs was fantastic and we just have confidence with the guy. If you watch the games, you see that his decision making process improved since early in the season and he still remains great in the pocket with his elusiveness, their is a lot of potential and with a year in the system with the same Ocord returning and his same offensive weapons returning for the most part, I expect Sanchez to do better next year.
don't get me wrong, i'm not anti sanchez i just don't see him as a top 15 QB next year.
