Meanwhile, how long did it take for guys like Steve Young and Brett Favre to establish themselves? Patience is officially dead, and we're all dumber for it.


The reason patience is dead is that the money they make nowadays... Rookies back then weren't paid nearly now as the QB's drafted are now. Teams can't afford to sit players like Sanchez, Smith, Stafford, VY when they make a ridiculous amount of money. They also don't have the best QB's in front of them or they won't be picked/started so they don't have the luxury of learning for 2-3 years. Alot of it's the hype also if your picked high you have high expectations. But like I said it's because of the $ part, Jets paid Sanchez $60 million with 28mil guaranteed they just can't afford to let a player with that much money sit on the bench, it's not like Clemens is better then Sanchez. Steve Young was also a 3rd round pick and played behind Montana and didn't start till he was like 30.

It doesn't matter what they're paid, as far as my point is concerned. 2 mil or 20, Sanchez isn't going to learn to read coverages any faster.

You think QB's who sit on the bench will automatically learn to read coverages? The only way to get better is by playing on the field. Yes a lot of qb's struggle starting straight out of the NFL like Couch, Leaf but there's the Mannings, Aikman, Brady, Big Ben, Flacco, Palmer who started early and had tremendous success. Starting early gives the QB actual game experience, you can watch all the film you want but you won't get better until you actually play. Would the Jets really start a QB like Kellen Clemens or Erik Ainge over Sanchez? Getting the QB's out there early is better for them it's better to get over the bruises in the early years instead of the later years.

You're still missing my point. I'm saying that QBs need time to develop and should not be judged so definitively early in their careers. Whether they're starting or not. I am not saying that Sanchez shouldn't start, I'm saying that he should be labeled neither "bust" nor "Sanchize" when he's only played 11 or 12 games.

I agree with you then.

Another strong game by Smith. 27/45 310 yards 2TD 0 picks. Should of had at least 1 or 2 more TD's but drops from Davis/Crabs/Walker didn't help. Niners should of had this game easily but we just choked away the game and our season.

We got to see the real Alex Smith today. The one who's eyes light up when he sees more than 4 guys lining up to come after him. The one who has one option when he's rushed out of the pocket: throw it out of bounds. The one who rushes his throws, can't make plays with his feet, and throws picks right into the defender's hands (that one to LB Tracy White was horrible...what was he thinking?). Guy is only decent until the blitz comes for him.

Not a clear bust yet, but as a starting QB? I wouldn't want him. Aaron Rodgers was takin #24 that draft. Wasn't he projected higher?
