This year is no different than any other. He works with ex-players and coaches to get a jump on things and it never helps.

IMO he would be better off traveling the world. Spend some of that hard earned money Jets fans put in his bank account.

It won't be long before he is on a permenant vaction, so he should get some practice at that.

He really likes practice

Jamarcus Russell is also working with Garcia. Maybe he and Mark are exchanging secrets to their success. Seems like Garcia likes working with the bottom of the barrel. That way, if there is even a shred of improvement, he looks like a genius.

Sanchez could be there (Garcia's camp) on the Jets' dime.

i'm not sure about it, but i would think that would be a violation of the CBA to be involved in any "team-related activity" during this period.  if the jets are sending him there, i would think that would qualify as a team-related activity.

Re: Mark Sanchez working with Jeff Garcia on West Coast Offense 


I am sure I came off real harsh earlier. Let me just let me clarify this.

Hard work is a great thing. A wonderful trait for people to have. I am positive hard work has gotten many players into the NFL. 

The bottom line though is you are either born or not born to be elite.  You need the physical plus mental tools along with a good work ethic to reach that level.

If all it took was hard work the league would be filled with all pros'.  It is not.

IMO Mark was not born with what he needs to be an elite QB in the NFL

True. What I should have said is, he might be there at the Jets' request. Garcia was quoted as saying he spoke with Marty Morhinweg about the kind of things MM wanted them to cover, so there seems to be some level of coordination. Maybe Mark is writing the check to JG, just to maintain whatever fig leaf of compliance they feel is necessary to keep everyone out of legal proceedings.

Yeah Jeff Garcia excelled in MM's WCO with the Eagles so it makes perfect sense...Mark knows this is his last chance and he'll have to win the job outright...

Although he did get help from Pennington for Sparano's offense last offseason and that didn't help much...

Re: Mark Sanchez working with Jeff Garcia on West Coast Offense 


I feel like Mark has been cuddled for most of his career. I can somewhat relate to protecting him by easing the offense onto him the first two years. That actually made sense to surround him with a solid front line, run the ball, and get off the field on defense. When they let the training wheels off Mark in 2011 he wasn't making good decisions on a consistent bases. The bickering became public between Holmes and Mark, and the locker room grew cancerous. So, we change the OC for many felt that Schotty was the cause. Schotty hasn't done much since he left; but Sparano didn't get it done either. Now we're in year five with Mark and he's on his third OC. Mark is only here because of his current contract. If he was a FA he would have been a cap casualty. This is a passing league. We've got one more year of this. Enough of the ground and pound, we can't overcome the mistakes to keep scoring on a long field. Build through the draft. Our gem is there.

He could be working with Walsh, Montana, and even the almighty God himself...I wouldn't expect anything different from what I've already seen.

In other news, Chris Weinke is working with Tim Tebow on his throwing motion (no, he really is).

Re: Mark Sanchez working with Jeff Garcia on West Coast Offense 


You can also put Rich Gannon working with Mark two years ago. He just doesn't have the pocket instincts or the vision down field to get to the next level. The fact that he didn't see Brandon's butt should tell you everything..

Re: Mark Sanchez working with Jeff Garcia on West Coast Offense 


I should have said in my opening post that Mark will have had a head start to see how the offense is run. Whether he has sucess or not we'll find out. I'm hoping he does but realistically I'm not convinced he will recover from last year's meltdown.

Is this Mark's leg up?

I just don't think Sanchez is "football smart",   so whatever he is doing may not help us in his reading the current game at hand,

Weinke probably took one look at Tebow's mechanics and said "Perfect! Don't change a thing!"

This is it right here. There is no coach in the world that can teach him how to see the field, read a defense, and make quick, smart, decisions with the football.

Really nice kid, hard worker and team player, but doesn't have what it takes between the ears to play at a high level consistently. Maybe it's because he was handed everything without earning it since his "glory days" in high school.

Re: Mark Sanchez working with Jeff Garcia on West Coast Offense 


I'd rather hear he's doing SOMETHING to at least try and improve, than just accepting what looks like his eventual fate.

Yeah... he hasn't turned out to be a great QB, but I'll always be happy to see him trying to change that and I don't understand the bitching about him doing so.
