Can Sanchise survive at the Meadowlands?

Please note the time of this post. The Jets and Bills are still in the first quarter of their 4 p.m. game.

And I predict Mark Sanchez will struggle today.

Why?

Well, my prediction is based on what I've heard from more than one NFL personnel guy. Mark Sanchez is solid, he is likely going to be just fine as a quarterback as long as the weather is good or he's playing inside a dome.

But in the Meadowlands? With the winds blowing? In the dead of winter's snow or rain?

The NFL folks tell me he's not equipped for that kind of weather.

Now, the winds are apparently blowing at Giants Stadium today. We'll see if the NFL folks are right or not.

Check back after the game for the results.

[Update: The game is over and in his first bad-weather game at the Meadowlands, Sanchez completed 10 of 29 passes for 119 yards with 5 interceptions. The Jets lost a game in which they rushed for 318 yards. Buffalo wins, 16-13 in overtime.]

That's all I got to say about that.

Boo Dirty Sanchez! You no good! Pobrecito Sanchito

It look very cold and wind today. This what destroy CP10 arm.

Hey Armando...Parrish not active...Fins?

Jets SUCK!!!

Jets suck. Bills suck more.

My sources know what they're talking about ... at least so far.

Sanchez is 2 of 7 so far and several of his passes have sailed. Ha.

Never mind that stuff. Did you see what Brees did to the G-men D??? I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling about next week. Forget about 35 min. of ball control, we'll need 40.

are you guys for real what the hell is a jets acticle doing an a miami paper !@#$% u guys for real. how cares really about the wets. jezz

Saints will be tough, but they wont be as good when they not in the dome... hopefully they come in overconfident after big win too

Don't rag on Mando for this, this is article root against Jests. Its a bye week people, you too sensitive.

Good Job Mandito

Jets and Bills look like two evenly matched teams... LOL. Hopefully we can get Brees and company to check out some of the clubs on the beach the night before the game. They looked unstoppable today, and the fins secondary could look foolish trying to stop them. We need some party promotor to step up and get these Saints way drunk.

Int from Sanchito

Sanchise intercepted from tip of Edwards... Should call him Sanchype


You got a warm-weather QB (Sanchez) playing for a cold-weather team, and a cold-weather QB (Henne) playing for a warm-weather team. Advantage: Phins.

Anyone know what #1 quality WR's will be free agents after this season?

This was the Saints biggest game of the year...two 5-0 teams I really believe there will be a deflation next week.after betting on a few games in my life, this would be one of those games you would watch for after a huge game for a team...I like the Dolphins chances next week...and that's been the knock on Dirty Sanchez since he was drafted...bad cold weather QB and that certainly looks like the case so far....Southern Cal boy is gonna gets lots of cold weather play with the JESTS LOL

bobbyd12, I think u right, don't forget the dome factor too

Turd Ferguson, I'm writing on the topic you mentioned for Monday's Miami Herald. You'll be surprised by how the Dolphins feel on the topic.

And to the genius that said I suck and why am I writing about the Jets ... um, the Dolphins aren't playing today. The Jets are. And the Dolphins played the Jets twice a year. And the Dolphins and the Jets are in the same division.

Sanchez get away with illegal formation on 4th down... Jets playing very dirty today, there should have been penalty too for how they take out Edwards... very dirty.

U tell em Mando!

Is Fitzpatrick relate to Aj Feeley or John Beck?

Too funny, Armando!!

Man the Bills are terrible

Can't help but think they deserve it for signing T.O.

Titans are terrible. sheesh

was just saying that, golfito, in my fantasy league. essentially from 1st to worst

I'm playing against Randy Moss today, I had the other team put away and Moss bringing them back

I've got Brady and Welker, nice combo today

Eagles stay home today?? Losing to Oakland??? That would be a tough loss if that score stands today

I have Raplesburger, A. Peterson, and Ronnie Brown...

Nice golfito! I have Brown too, took him earlier than projected. I knew he would have a good year.

Brady, 5 TD's in the first half

who is Brady? Never heard of him.

;)

LOL... I know, I had to hold my nose when I drafted him. It will be Brady who, when Henne gets a #1 receiver, though.

any1 think reggie bush would be a good fit for miami?

Mark Sanchez 4 of 14 with 1 TD and 1 int so far.

Armando, you are right in there with the NFL guys. You supported what they said, so, if Sanchez plays OK, YOU made the wrong call.
I'll give you your due, if you accept the consequences, when it is all said and done.

"No" to the Reggie Bush question.

I personally love the power backs. Nothing like watching the bruising running style punish a defense

That's fair sgoodwins. If Sanchez plays well this winter in the elements, I'm wrong. If he doesn't ...

It could be snowing with a 40% chance of hurricane and Dan could still throw against the Bills defense. Yeah, even with a suit on!

Hey carlito, Sanchez didn't get away with illegal formation, he got away with illegal immigration, like you.

No wonder Calvin Pace doesn't like the Wildcat...less chances for him to make "dirty hits" on the QB...NFL should fine him for that one

Armando, you mentioned Sanchez has thrown a pick and a TD. Did he throw a TD?

He hasn't thrown a TD

I'm just not letting you have an out, is all. If you make a statement like that, you have to man up, and not leave yourself an out...
I'm a southern (Los Angeles, and Sarasota)guy myself, and know what it is like to go to PA, in the winter. So, I know things are working in your favor.

Another pick for Sanchez

Thanks. I gotta say, I like that he's struggling in less than ideal weather conditions.

Sanchez just threw another pick... And I don't see a TD in his official stats

INS,

You are horrible racist person and need prayer for you soul. Mark Sanchez born in USA to American parents. I took all legal avenues to come to america over 25 years ago and people like you a disgrace to this great nation of USA.

Sgoodwins...Sanchez had that same reputation in college, why wpuld anything change in his rookie year in the NFL??? Fact is Armando didn't reveal any huge secret buy a known fact

just ignore them carlito, they are not worth the attention

bills driving Jets are fake

LOL...Rex Ryan looks like his head is gonna blow up..Buffalo running for large chunks of yardage

I can't believe I'm saying this.... Go Bills!!!

Go Buffs!!

Sanchez 4/15, two ints and 0 td's

haha Sanchez has -4 points in fantasy football!

After watching what the Saints did to the Giants today; if the Fins win their next three games, they are playing in the Superbowl...and I will man up to that one!
