    sanchez is a pretty boy star in new york who is a servicable qb. his star appeal (it helps he's hispanic because there aren't many in the nfl) gives him a premium. i wouldn't do it but i understand. hopefully he gets better, but his team isn't all that either.

    This is dumb beyond belief. I can only imagine how much Jets fans will lather up about this.

    yep. I'd be pissed if I was a Jets fan. Let him finish his contract and go from there. He hasn't shown any good progression over the last three years. No way you give him that kind of extension.

    J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!

    For being this dumb, they deserve all of the future troubles they're going to have with Sanchez as their starting QB.

    I have yet to hear a good reason for why they did this. If they had extended him at the end of an existing contract, I would at least understand that they had to make a decision one way or the other. But he had two years left on his deal. There was literally no reason to extend him at that point in time.

    This is what makes extending Sanchez such an insane move. The Jets need to put pressure on him to improve and shake him from his comfort zone. Being comfortable doesn't motivate the guy.

    Next summer is when they should have extended (or not).

    Its hush money for not coming out of the closet with his lover Scotty McKnight.

    Seriously folks. That whole Sanchez slaying girls and dating Upton is just the PR machine trying to quiet the gay rumors.

    Not that there's anything wrong with being gay.

    According to ESPN, because Sanchez has such a weak standing in the lockerroom, the Jets felt it necessary to lock him up long term to let everyone know he would be the starting QB for at least 2 more years.

    I don't know what to say. It sounds like Sanchez is benefiting from the fact teammates think he's coddled and burped like a baby (by the team). In other words, his sorry leadership ability helped him get the extension.

    Same old Jets! Some things never change.

    :D it's so stupid. his problem in the locker room is that the other Jets feel the FO overprotects him. So their solution for that is to give him even more money!

    I think this extension, is just a way to say: "Im sorry" from the Jets to Mark Sanchez for talking about bringing Peyton to be the starting QB.

    they made a good point on first take this morning. the jets openingly courted manning so the probably made this move to assure everyone that he is sitll their guy. not the best reason but a reason

    So the Jets made a mistake and then made another one to smooth over the first one.

    Like I said: Same old Jets!
