You can't play it off like Sanchez can have a mediocre year and the Jets still make the super bowl like they claim they will.
If you look at the starting QB's to win a super bowl since 2005 they were all good QB's, most of them elite QB's.
2010: Drew Brees
2009: Ben Roethlesburger
2008: Eli Manning
2007: Peyton Manning
2006: Ben Roethlesburger
2005: Tom Brady
Mark Sanchez can not be mentioned with any of those QB's skill wise. He's done little to improve. Defense helps win championships but with out a legit QB you aren't going to get it done. Look at the Bears in 07. They had no QB but a great D. Now look at the Steelers, great D, legit QB...2 superbowls.
Everyone is sleeping on the Giants this year which is a good thing. They've quietly improved alot this off season. The defense looks alot better, especially with our new 4 man rush and D coordinator. Piere-Paul Umeniora Tuck and Kiwanuka 4 man rush is going to help put our defense back on the map. Our receiving core improved, Eli is coming off a career year with what many called the weakest receiving squad the Giants have had during his time there, and Ahmad Bradshaw won the starting job from Jacobs who will do alot better coming off the bench.
Keep sleepin on the Giants baby.
