Young QB’s hurt by the lockout last year Dan Leberfeld

Rex Ryan feels that last year’s lockout hurt the development of young quarterbacks around the league.

What does Mark Sanchez think of this theory?

“It couldn’t have helped us,” Sanchez said. “Rex is making his own judgment on that and I totally respect that, but at the same time as a competitor, I don’t want to use that as an excuse or a crutch, like you get a free pass because of the lockout. I understand what he’s saying, but I needed to play better.”
