I have seen dozens of articles and interviews about how great Mark Sanchez is going to be this year and in the future. The Jets had the number one defense in the NFL and the number one running game last year while Freeman... well lets just say he had a lot less to work with. Now if you compare their stat lines from last year, Freeman had 10 TD's, 18 INT, 1855 yards, with a 59.8 rating; Sanchez had 12 TD's, 20 INT's, 2,444 yards, and a 63.0 rating.
Mark Sanchez did slightly better, but again he had a much better team around him, and he started the entire year. If everyone is gushing about Sanchez, we should be doing back flips at what Freeman will be able to do with an improved WR corp and a year of experience. I think when all is said and done we came away with the best QB in the 09 draft.
