Former Jets punter Steve Weatherford likes Sanchez, and wants him to succeed. He however, hasn’t seen the maturation that he thinks he should from his now cross-stadium quarterback. Take a look at what he said in a podcast yesterday:
“I like Mark I think he’s a very talented quarterback but from my standpoint I haven’t seen a lot of maturation from the position,” Weatherford said on the Cover Two podcast Thursday. “When you’re a quarterback and you come in and you’re expected to be the face of the franchise and you’re expected to lead the team that’s a lot to take on as a rookie, but as the years go on I think you’re expected to mature skill wise and also mature as a leader and to be honest with you, as much as I like the guy I just haven’t seen that.”
First of all, take it easy Steve. I didn’t realize punting made you the next great quarterback coach. Settle down, you are a good punter, not a talent scout.
But, I also have to wonder if this is what the officials inside Jets headquarters is thinking. I mean, why bring Tim Tebow in otherwise.
