Buffalo Bills Should Pursue Mark Sanchez

The New York Jets have signed Michael Vick and released Mark Sanchez.  The Buffalo Bills should have Sanchez into One Bills Drive immediately.

Sanchez, when surrounded by appropriate talent, is a very good quarterback.  He took the Jets to the playoffs twice and has won four playoff games.  The talent is now in Buffalo and the pieces are in place for a quarterback of his age (27) and skill to thrive.

Forget the “butt-fumble” and remember how the Jets have let this guy down.  They pursued Peyton Manning and without apology brought in Tim Tebow.  Geno Smith was probably the icing on the cake and now the misfortune and mishandling of the Jets can be to the advantage of the Bills.  All that has happened to Sanchez in New York has only made him stronger and wiser.

So many times I see the Bills draft good players only to have them leave when they hit their prime like the Bills are some sort of minor league team.  For once the Bills have a chance to do this to another team and a team in their own division!

Sanchez would be a marked upgrade over Thad Lewis.  He could even challenge for the starting position. When is the last time we had the problem of two good quarterbacks in Buffalo?  Plus there is no guarantee that EJ will make it 16 full games and wouldn’t it be good to have a backup that doesn’t miss a beat when entering the game?

What say you Buffalo?  Is Sanchez a good fit for the Buffalo Bills?
