Legendary NFL running back LaDanian Tomlinson says the New York Jets' Mark Sanchez does not have what it takes to be a starting quarterback in the league.

LaDanian Tomlinson says the New York Jets' Mark Sanchez can't be a starting quarterback in the NFL

Tomlinson, a retired running back who's now an NFL analyst, made his point on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Radio last Tuesday. 

"I don't think Mark will be a starter again in the NFL. I think there's certainly potential for him to be a backup and then get a starting job for half the year or what have you that way. But I think his days as a full-time starter are pretty much over." 

Sanchez now has four professional seasons tucked under his belt. His career got off to a respectable start with an exceptional running game and defense helping the Jets appear in back-to-back conference championship games in 2009 and 2010. 

However, his game has since tailed off, particularly his quarterback rating which plummeted to a career-low 23.4 in 2012. His touchdown passes dropped from 26 in 2011 to 13 in 2012. He also had 18 interceptions and nine fumbles in a forgettable performance for the Jets last season. 

With this, Tomlinson believes Sanchez wasn't able to prove he's the Jets' franchise quarterback during his first four years in New York. 

"Because you've got to realize in football, for a quarterback, you're going to get three to five years in an organization to prove that you're the franchise guy. I mean that's just what it is. And if you don't do that in that time frame then they're going to move on to somebody else and then your position now will become a backup." 

 Tomlinson's latest statements substantiate his comments in the New York Daily News last June.

"In preseason, if Mark Sanchez doesn't show the ability to improve from turning the football over and that race is close between the two, Geno Smith will be the starter." 

According to USA Today Sports' Nate Davis, Sanchez parting ways with the Jets may eventually happen taking his right shoulder injury and the presence of rookie quarterback Geno Smith into account.

Sanchez was Tomlinson's teammate with the Jets in the final two seasons of his memorable career in 2010 and 2011.

NFL Predictions Week 10: Early Odds, Picks and Projections for Upcoming Schedule

Nov 4 2014 10:00am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Early-week underdogs in the NFL picks department can put bettors ahead in a major way. That is, if they can properly identify the surefire underdogs to bet before the lines dramatically shift as others throw coin down on the full slate. Funnily enough, it seems underdogs have been ripe for the picking this season, but actually being confident enough to roll against Seattle at home or Denver in general is quite rare. No, let's play a bit closer to the vest this time around to ...
