Players around the NFL literally laughed at the Broncos when they traded for Mark Sanchez last month. They a sumed the quarterback was brought to Denver to start, though popular logic suggests Sanchez, the "first step" in John Elway's proce s, will play a backup role in Denver.Sanchezisn't buying it. Nor should he.The 29-year-old told the Denver Post this weekhe has been getting himself physically and mentally preparedto compete for the starting QB job. And yes,he is well Derek Watt Jersey aware of theColin Kaepernick trade rumors that fillthe Denver air.MORE: Kap can't afford to gamble | Where QBs really go to die"Listen, I don't care who is there, what is going on right now. (The Broncos)are going to give me a fair shake, that's all I can ask for, a fair shot," Sanchez said."I will be friendly and profe sional with whoever is there. But I want this bad. Really bad."I will bet on myself."And, actually, that's not a bad bet.Bovada recently released odds on the Broncos 2016 starting quarterbackand installedSanchez as the favorite.Mark Sanchez 5/2Colin Kaepernick 7/2Ryan Fitzpatrick 15/22016 NFL Draft Pick 3/1Other 13/10The longer the Broncos, the 49ers and Kaepernick fail to agree to terms on a transaction, the stronger Sanchez'sodds become. Denver, with Philip Rivers Jersey the 31st pick in the draft and as Fitzpatrick inchescloser to a Jets return, has few options.Coach Gary Kubiak understands, and his words should prompt further optimism forSanchez."We need to stay focused on the guys on our team right now,'' Kubiak told ESPN this week Junior Seau Jersey , referring to Sanchez and Trevor Siemian."We're very excited about Mark, and we know those guys are up there throwing in California. So, that's exciting.Mark has a lot of background in our system, so he will make up a lot of ground quickly."Sanchez also said he wants "what they experienced last year." Given how the Broncos managed to win Super Bowl 50, there's little reason to believe Sanchez can't provide adequate play underKubiak.Peyton Manning threw a couple touchdowns and a pick, completed 55.4 percent of his pa s attempts and managed a 75.4 rating through the Broncos' three playoff wins last season. Sanchez in two postseasonswith theJets(six starts in total)threw nine touchdowns and three picks, completed 60.5 percent of his pa ses and managed a 94.3 rating.MORE: 10 players costing old teams millions | What's the Kap holdup?Nobody will tell you the former Jets Melvin Gordon Jersey and Eagles quarterback is a franchise pa ser his career TD-INT ratio of 86-84 andrecord of 37-35 as starter pretty much tellthe tale but even he is an upgrade over the garbage quarterback playDenverdealt with on its way to a title.Sanchez, provided a championship-caliber defense and stability with a trustworthy coaching staff, would be fine.And Elway's Broncos just proved that, at least in the short term, fineisdandy.
