Right now, the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback will likely either be Trevor Siemian or Mark Sanchez. Despite what people may say about the latter choice, running back C.J. Anderson wants people to believe in Sanchez.
Anderson, who has had some pretty good success with the Broncos over the last few years, is pretty confident in what Sanchez can do on the field. He recently spoke about his quarterback and reminded fans that he was once a very successful player in the NFL.
“People forget about Sanchez, you know, he has two AFC championship belts,” he said on Movin’ the Chains. “Even though he lost them, he has two under his belt, that he’s been to. And it shows, the leadership that he had when he was with the Jets.”
Mark Sanchez led the New York Jets to two straight AFC Championship Games in his first two years with the team after he was drafted sixth overall in 2009. However, his numbers were mediocre in those two years as he threw for just 5,735 yards and 29 touchdowns.
Despite that and him never coming close to 4,000 yards in a season, Anderson is okay with Sanchez possibly being the leader on the offense.
“He’ll have some better targets to throw to, I believe that,” Anderson said. “But he’s just very calm in the huddle. He’s a leader, he works hard at it.”
