Some HOF-caliber QBs started their careers on horrendous teams. Peyton Manning, Troy Aikman for instance. Hell, Eli was 1-6 as a starter his rookie season. I don't know that there's much correlation between a QB's long term success and the quality of his team his rookie season. Would Geno be better watching Matt Simms or Brady Quinn suck all year long? I think he'll be fine.
The Sanchez injury is probably the best thing that ever could've happened to the Jets this season. A giant drama cloud is gone from the team and they have 16 games to see what Geno can do. If he sucks you have a high lottery pick and draft another QB, if he does good you have a potential future QB and something to build the team around. The quicker they get away from Sanchez, the quicker they can work on becoming a playoff team again.
