The Good, The Bad, The Ugly….Quarterback Edition
Sanchez looked like the franchise QB the Jets drafted 2 years ago. In week one, it appeared the Jets would need to win in spite of Sanchez but he bounced back with a superb performance. Sanchez completed 21 of 30 attempts for 3 scores and no picks. With Santonio Holmes waiting in the wings, the Jets have the look of dominate team on both sides of the ball.
From Mother’s in Federal Hill to Momma’s in Canton, the mantra of the Inner Harbor has gone from “Wako for Flacco” to “Flacco is Wacko.” What an abysmal day for the 3rd year QB out of Deleware: 17 of 39, 154 yards 1 score and 4 interceptions. The Ravens entered 2010 with soaring expectations for their offense. However, after 2 weeks it’s the same old story. The Ravens have a great defense and an impotent offense.
