NFL’s own website questions Sanchez as a leader Dan Leberfeld

Mike Lombardi, writing for NFL.com, which is owned by the league, doesn’t think much of Mark Sanchez as a leader.

“How does [the Tim Tebow signing] affect Mark Sanchez? I think greatly,” wrote Lombardi on NFL.com. “I wish, upon hearing the news of Tebow’s signing, Sanchez would have displayed the same anger that recently signed backup Drew Stanton showed. For all the talk of being a leader, Sanchez never operates like one. He should have leveled the Jets for making this move, and made it clear he was not interested in leaving the game for a gadget offense. Sanchez needs to stand up for himself and not appear as if he was paid off to be a good soldier.”
