Interesting quotes from Pete Carroll's perspective versus Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan's viewpoints:
"Through the first nine weeks of the 2012 NFL season, Mark Sanchez
of the New York Jets has performed at a level that puts him in Football Outsiders' opponent-adjusted metrics.
In his four-year career, Sanchez has never ranked higher than 20th in FO's season-cumulative DYAR stats, and never higher
in its per-play DVOA rankings. In the last year, Sanchez has seen anonymous teammates question his character, his own general manager wonder
whether he'll ever take that nebulous next step, and his team trade for Tim Tebow, thus throwing the quarterback situation into a perma-drama that benefits
Doug Farar poses the big question: "The real question with Sanchez seems to be: Would he really have benefited from another year at USC, or was this his ceiling all along, and this is what we're going to get?"
