Ladainian Tomlinson Says Mark Sanchez Has No Future as Starting QB
Ladainian Tomlinson has no love lost for his former team, the New York Jets, and once again he is letting it be known. Yahoo Sports is reporting that Tomlinson recently announced on Adam Schein’s Sirium XM show when asked if Mark Sanchez will ever start at QB again:
“No, I don’t think Mark will be a starter again in the NFL. I think there’s certainly potential for him to be a backup and then get a starting job for half the year or what have you that way,” Tomlinson said. “But I think his days as a full time starter are pretty much over. Because you’ve got to realize in football, for a quarterback, you’re going to get three to five years in an organization to prove that you’re the franchise guy. I mean that’s just what it is. And if you don’t do it in that time frame then they’re going to move on to somebody else and then you’re position now will become a backup.”
Clearly Sanchez never made a great impression on Tomlinson. There hasn’t been any word from Sanchez and how he feels about what his former teammate had to say.
