Marty Mornhinweg Says Mark Sanchez Has 'Leg Up' Over Jets QBs
Newly hired Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg told reporters Monday that Mark Sanchez has an edge over the in-house competition as New York sorts out its mess under center.
"Mark will probably have just a little bit of a leg up, it would appear," Mornhinweg said, via The Associated Press. "I would like to have competition at that position as well as all the other positions. There are a select few on this football team that have kind of earned the right to step in there as No. 1 on the depth chart. But I certainly would like competition at all the other spots, including the quarterback spot."
It's assumed Sanchez -- based on the $8.25 million in guaranteed money he'll earn in 2013 -- is going nowhere. Mornhinweg told The AP he sees "a lot of strengths" in his quarterback -- they have yet to work together in person -- and disputed the notion that Sanchez's play needs fixing as the team shifts to a West Coast attack.
Most who watched the Jets play last season will struggle with Mornhinweg's rosy assessment.
