Is Sanchez already better than Eli?

If Sanchez won a Super Bowl and was MVP of it then this could be a topic, but until that happens please don't post absurd comments like this....haha
I understand you are trying to say after 2 years but come on, Sanchez went to two AFC championship games only to lose.....maybe you should compare him to Mcnabb not Eli.

Definitely not. Eli beat Belicheat in the SB to spoil the perfect season. Sanchez needs to win a SB before we have this conversation IMO. Rex said we're definitely winning the SB next year so lets revisit this thread in 11 months. I can't stop thinking about Eli's SB so maybe I'm a biased juror.

No but he won a Super Bowl in his 3rd full season as a starter.
If you want to compare stats alone, Sanchez in 2009 and 2010 vs. Eli in 2005 and 2006 (I wouldn't count 2004, he only started 7 games after the team lost 3 out of 4), then Eli has the upper hand. Eli has more passing attempts, completions, TDs, yards, higher completion % and QB rating. Eli had 35 picks to Sanchez 33, BFD. You can say all you want, but Eli has been, is and will always be a better QB than Sanchez.
Maybe if Sanchez stopped hanging around Greenwich High School and hanging out with 17-yr old girls and focused on being a better QB he might have won in Pittsburg.

I'd rather be scoffed on my own merit than lauded for emulation....

I'll tell you why the SB matters; it's the biggest game of the season and puts the most pressure on the players. Players that perform well in the SB don't get credit "because it's the SB", they get credit because of all the pressure they're under. It has nothing to do with the hardware and everything to do with the situation they're performing in.
Eli shocked me and the world in that SB and that late TD throw was nothing short of amazing. I give him all the credit in the world for that throw. But the problem I have with using the SB as a major point in the argument for Eli is that "clutch" is not a consistent attribute of his.
With that said I don't think its fair to put Sanchez ahead of him. But I can't really hold Eli to a much higher standard than Sanchez at this point either.
Both QBs have put up shaky comp% in their beginning years. And both have proven to be pretty INT prone. Eli owns Mark in yardage and TD's though.
But I think Mark is more consistent in stepping up his game when the pressure is on. I think he's going to develop into a better clutch QB than Eli. The Jets lost both their AFC championship games, but Sanchez also performed well in those games.
If Shotty/Rex had managed time better in this past AFCCG and gotten the ball back in Mark's hands I think he had a good shot at scoring a game winning drive and bringing the jets to the SB. He played great in the second half.
I think its possibly Eli outperforms Sanchez in yardage and TDs for most of their careers though.

Those comments don't look quite as absurd now do they?
I guess the end of this year should be the time to revisit this thread?
