Sanchez solid for Jets

Last year, the football-watching world came to a standstill when the Jets’ new quarterback made his preseason debut.

This year, there was far less interest in the team’s newest pass-thrower.  But his performance suggests that, eventually, his performances will be appointment viewing.

Rookie Mark Sanchez, the fifth overall pick in the draft, completed a 48-yard pass to receiver David Clowney on Sanchez’s first play from scrimmage.

Sanchez finished by completing three of four passes for 88 yards, and leading the Jets to a touchdown on his only drive of the game.

Then again, it came against the Rams.

Kellen Clemens, the other candidate for the starting job, completed four of four passes for 24 yards in two drives.

Erik Ainge handled the rest of the game, completing ten of 17 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown.

    Wasn’t it already established that Rex Ryan and the Jets rule pre-season?

    I think Sanchez is poised to be a successful in his first season as Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco were last year. The only difference for him is that he is playing in the same division as Tom Brady and the very impressive looking New England Patriots. You almost have to win 12 games just to have a shot at the wild card in the AFC. I hope for his sake that he is able to make it.
