QB Comparison

There were a lot of questions about the conservative game plan last week and it made me wonder why it was such a big deal to make Mark Sanchez play more under control when Matt Leinart made a career off throwing passes to tight ends and running backs?
So here’s a good way to explain it: Mark Sanchez tends to be too aggressive and has to be told to reign it in against a defense like Cal’s. If Leinart faced Cal, he was good enough and patient enough to read defenses that the coaches could make aggressive calls and know if the receiver was not open, he would quickly find a running back to dump the ball off to.
On the other hand, John David Booty sometimes played too conservative and needed to be forced to throw the deep ball.
Hopefully, this explains the difference between the last three quarterbacks. And please note I was actually positive abou Leinart!
