All but Sanchez may be being written off prematurely and a few of them may be suffering from the David Carr syndrome (lack of a decent supporting cast). Many college stars at QB played behind solid offensive lines and when a young QB is suddenly thrust into a situation where he is not getting adequate pass protection, he is going to have problems adjusting to such adverse conditions. Even an elite NFL QB would have a hard time succeeding behind a weak offensive line.

Damn easy to espouse negative comments. Notice how he made no workable solutions? Arm-chair QB, red-neck noise....that's all it was. Remember how everyone was all about Webbs ability? How did that work out? Before you throw Ponder under the bus, tell us WHO should be replacing him. Then we'd know if YOU KNOW what you're talking about.

First time in a long time that I attempted to read an article from bleacher report. It reminded me of why I quit reading them in the first place. Bunch of amatuer wanna-be journalism.

Gabbert might be OK if they give him time to throw for a change.

Liked Gabbert from college but his lack of mobility kills him in the pros.

Reason Sanchez is on the list is because Jets drafted Geno Smith who after mini camp has the entire coaching staff smitten with him.

David Isotoner Carr had no syndrome he was simply overrated.

He had a lousy tem and a disaster of an offensive line to protect him. I don't care if he were Sammy Baugh, Johnny Unitas, or Aaron Rodgers. He still would have had problems winning. There are NO Hall of Fame QBs who played most of their career behing a leaky line. He has stuck around for quite a long time as a backup and for the lousy lines he played behind as a starter, his numbers were not all that bad. Had he played behind a strong line, perhaps the results would have been much different. In his rookie season he set a record for being sacked.

I agree. Good college QB but never made the transition to the pros. He had a shot with the panthers but didn't produce there either.

Did you ever check his ststs for the last three years in Houston? They were actually very respectable for playing on a bad team. He has also played well when called upon by the Giants.

I have not checked the stats, I'm just going by memory. I don't recall him playing anything but garbage time with the giants?

I thought he played well with Houston in his last season there and got too much blame for the team's failures which were not nearly all his fault as in scapegoat.
