Despite going 11-18 yesterday, the Jets Mark Sanchez has still completed just 49.7% (88 of 177) of his passes on the season. Teammate Tim Tebow had himself another 1-1 day, lifting the Tebometer back to 47.5%.
On a totally unrelated (but funny to compare) note, Celtics point guard (and much maligned foul shooter) Rajon Rondo is shooting 100% from the free throw line (11-11) so far this preseason.
I can’t even fathom what kind of odds you might have been able to get in Vegas on a bet that after 6 NFL games and 3 NBA exhibition contests Rondo’s FT% would be more than double Sanchez’s completion rate.
