If there is one quarterback to root for, Mark Sanchez has gone above and beyond my expectations more so, his support will continue to gain another follower. Denver Broncos, in my opinion, will still acquire Kaepernick. However, Sanchez will be welcomed with open arms by me and hopefully, the rest of Broncos Country.
One person who would not mind Sanchez as starting quarterback is Emmanuel Sanders. Sanders and many of the offensive targets to California for Sanchez’s passing camp. Sanders was impressed.
“A great impression. I can’t speak for everyone else, but I can speak for myself. I went out to California. I worked out with him,” Sanders said.
That statement alone should make the Broncos comfortable even if the franchise does not land the quarterback of their liking. Sanders has been candid while in Denver and does not shy away from praise when give a chance.
A sign of leadership in a quarterback or a player is establishing rapport with the other players and backup quarterbacks. Sanchez invited none other than Trevor Siemian to his camp in California and has continued text conversations with Sanders since leaving the camp.
“He’s been texting me all the time wanting to hang. Just going out there to California, I can tell he wants to be a leader on this team, he wants to be the quarterback and he wants to be the guy,” Sanders added.

A pro in every phase of the word, Sanchez has done everything possible for wide receivers to laud him as a possible starter. Sanders, along with Demaryius Thomas, Bennie Fowler and Cody Latimer (sleeper Jordan Taylor) gives Sanchez the weapons needed to impress the Broncos staff, players and fans. Sanchez has even stunned Sanders with his arm strength at 29-years old, which is always a wide reciever’s best friend.
“I was impressed by his arm strength. I was impressed with the throws he was making. I’ve been here around the locker room and he’s been spending extra time in the facility. That’s the type of guy that we need. It’s going to be fun,” Sanders on Sanchez’s arm strength.
If Sanchez, under head coach Gary Kubiak, can relive his AFC Championship days with the Broncos and USC, Sanchez will give the Broncos the best shot to get back to the playoffs if they do not land a quarterback in the draft or via trade.
Emmanuel Sanders’ comments should not alarm fans since we have heard the same since Sanchez who has embraced the possibility of becoming starter.
