Mark Sanchez has progressed each year so I would give him that he did score double the touchdowns if you combined his first 2 years together. I still wouldn't give him that deal thou that is just insane and wacky. I don't know what the jets are thinking except that they don't want to rebuild again with another QB.
Ehh Im going to disagree with yall on this one. At least Sanchez has better mechanics and the reason why Tebow doesn't throw interceptions is because the system they have him in. When you throw a ball 10 times a game your probably not going to get many interceptions. But having said that I wouldn't want either of them on my team and I had no other choice I wouldn't give either one of those two a crazy contract. I guess with Tebow you sale lots of jerseys and media helps commercialize your team.
Sanchez rate is god awful, but when you compare it to some others it isn't that bad. Fitzpatrik was every 24.7 throws, Grossman was every 22. Palmer 20.5. Rodgers was 83.

True conscript but I would like to ask how many short passes and tosses do you think they had Tebow throw compared to Sanchez.
With all this talk of QB's, there's something that's bothering me at the moment.
Oakland has Campbell, Palmer, Boller and Pryor (they also have Rhett Bomar but he's not had a game anywhere in two years)
Oakland has essentially no draft picks.
There's no way either Campbell or Palmer would be happy playing second string for the other, and Boller is beyond the drizzling shits.
Why have we not traded one (or more, I'm sure Boller could be a backup somewhere for a 5th round pick) for a better position in this year's draft?
If Campbell leaves without Oakland getting anything out of it, my face will go through this desk in frustration.
Boller will be a missed opportunity but I'm not going to cry if we don't get a pick for him. Campbell is at least a 2nd round alone.
I'd think they could get something semi-decent for Campbell, but I would think any team would consider him option C or lower at this point. You'd have to wait for Peyton to sign, Luck and Griffin to get drafted and Matt Flynn to sign before teams would start seriously looking to trade for a guy like Campbell. That's without looking at the who the middle-of-the-pack type QB's who might be a FA this year. I'd think the major problem with Campbell is that where ever he goes, he'd want to be the starter, but any team that wants him would either want him as a backup or at least competing for the starting role. I have a feeling he's not going to be happy no matter where he lands.
As for Kyle Boller, I can't see a team giving up anything of real worth to obtain him; especially when you have a much better trade piece in Campbell. This was his first major playing time since leaving the Ravens (that I know of) and he had the same terrified, deer-in-the-headlights stare that he had when he was in Baltimore.

Campbell has the ability to be a starting QB in the NFL. If I had to put money on it, I could see him absolutely signing for the Seahawks or the Browns next year and becoming their starter out of the gate. I love T-Jax, but Campbell is better than him.
lol Couldn't agree more on your opinion of Boller.
I wouldn't want Boller,Campbell,Garrard,Sanchez,Tebow,Kolb,Fitzpatrick,Gabbert,T.Jackson or even Alex smith as my starting QB
Before his injury Campbell was actually having a good season at Oakland, he turned a corner then :endseason:
Granted a couple of the games after we'd not have won if it wasn't for Palmer (.. or more accurately Palmer throwing the ball deep enough for Janikowski to kick the Bears to death) But we'd be looking at a 9-7/10-6 season.
There are teams that could do worse with what they've got than pick up Campbell.
