Pete Carroll on Mark Sanchez

Here is the assessment of USC head coach Pete Carroll on Jets QB Mark Sanchez -

"Mark has shown he has the ability to be a really big-time quarterback in our system," said Carroll. "He has the strongest arm we've had since Carson Palmer. He is a resourceful quarterback, able to take off and move and make some plays with his legs. And our players really respond to him. Once he was named the starter, he came out more energetic, more demonstrative and took on more of a leadership role, which is what we expected."
