Giants Punter Steve Weatherford says Sanchez is Lacking “Maturation”

Hey everyone is doing, why not a punter.  It seems like it’s the cool thing to do, to rip on Mark Sanchez. Steve Weatherford, the Giants punter, on an podcast, voiced his opinion of his old team and the quarterback at the helm.

Fresh off getting his Super Bowl Ring, why is Steve talking about the Jets and Mark?  People LOVE to talk about these Jets.  Wow.  Let it go.


“I like Mark — I think he’s a very talented quarterback — but from my standpoint, I haven’t seen a lot of maturation,” said Weatherford, making the media rounds this week because the Giants received their Super Bowl rings. “When you’re a quarterback and you come in, and you’re expected to be the face of the franchise, and you’re expected to lead the team.

“That’s a lot to take on as a rookie. But as the years go on, I think you’re expected to mature, skill-wise, and also mature as a leader, and to be honest with you, as much as I like the guy, I just haven’t seen that.” – Read More

I’m not into past players talking smack about previous teammates.  I’m sure Mark is going to be asked about the quote and he should take a page out of the great Peyton Manning’s book.   To quote Manning:

“The sad thing is, he’s a good kicker. He’s a good kicker. But he’s an idiot.”
