Well, youre a fan, you could always try.

Im not prejudiced, ive no bias, i havent been prejorative in the OP - just his contract and the question.

So, honest question: What do you think being a Jets fan?

12 million a year is 7th highest qb?

+ You got pre and post CBA , and when the other qbs signed there contracts, by the time the he gets to middle of that contract he will probably be in the bottom half of the league.

According to La Canfora, NFL, ESPN & Roto? Yep, 7th highest.

Despite the early cracker jack knee jerk responses in the media and forums regarding this move, the Jets really had to make it.

Sanchez obviously regressed last year, that last month ruined a promising season. That's not debatable. The Jets are gambling that he improves in the next two years with this extension, BUT....

Sanchez had two years left on his pre-rookie cap deal with crazy $17.5M+ due. This extension does a couple things, mainly free up $6.5M in cap space this year. In exchange, he's guaranteed $20M the next two seasons, $2.5M more than he was already getting and the Jets get him under contract for three years after that.

So not much has changed for the next two seasons. Sanchez or bust. If he bust, Rex, Tanny and Sanchez are gone in 2014. If he improves, we have him under contract through his age 30 season.

And finally, I don't know how they are calculating that he's the 7th highest paid. I'd be curious how that was determined.

Im sure they are all just reading each others fluff, until I see the structure I doubt I see him being paid 7th highest, plus like I said comparing his contract to to other qbs is going to be hard because of all the other factors that are involved.

^^ That makes more sense. Cap room

And fwiw in just checking for Rugger, Sanchez was 5th highest paid QB in 2011 - so this deal actually (as 'view just pointed out) - lowers his salary and gives the Jets a bit more room. Reason he was 5th highest paid in 2011? He hit escalators and was one of the last of the mega paid high Rnd 1 drafted QBs and was on $13.5m. Only Manning, Bradford, Brady & Vick earned more than Sanchez last year @QB which surprised me.

And thats according to Forbes - and all the other references ive cross checked marry. Noone disagrees, which is odd in the media when it comes to cap issues.

I dont watch many Jets games - save for when we play them (BUF) and im in full blown partisan mode (hence having no bias in this as i cant fairly judge) so would sanchez make progress with more of an infusion of talent at WR, the running game or something else?

With the vote of confidence im guessing weapons are forthcoming for him?

Im not arguing with you, what Im getting at is for instance eli and ben are barely making more per year than sanchez, but if you look at bens contract it started in 2008 and eli in 2009. If eli were to sign a contract at the same time as sanchez now Im almost certain he would be averaging nearly 5-6 million more a year. Cutler is making less but signed his contarct in 2009 and schaub is coming to end of his contract, This is probably more of a slightly above average contract at the present time considering post CBA and when other qbs signed there contract.


If you think about it, brees is almost asking double of what sanchez is here.

This is a great contract... for the Patriots

This was a makeup for looking at Peyton. They didn't "have to" like a poster above said, but it saved the chemistry in the locker room.

I have been a doubter of Sanchez since he declared for the draft, and so far I've seen nothing to change that opinion.
