Jason Taylor has seen both Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez up close as teammates, and has studied both of them as opponents. And Taylor says it’s clear to him who has more talent: Henne.
“I think Chad has grown immensely since I left here a year ago,” Taylor told NBC Miami. “I saw a kid in New York, Mark Sanchez, that is young, I don’t think he’s as talented as Chad Henne.”
Taylor is in his third stint with the Dolphins, and after playing with the Jets last year he has a good perspective on both Sanchez and Henne. However, his answer is more about who his teammate of the moment is than a candid assessment of the quarterbacks’ talents. Taylor made that much clear last year, when he was with the Jets and he was asked the same question.
“I know who I’m going to pick, and it’s my quarterback here,” Taylor said. “I’ve always been one of those guys that rides or dies with his quarterback. Sanchez is my guy, and I better not hear anybody say anything bad about him.”
Unless it’s saying he’s not as talented as Henne. That’s something Taylor is willing to say now.
