Mike Sando's MVP Watch

By Mike Sando

Any quarterback on pace for 32 touchdowns, no interceptions and a 12-4 starting record deserves at least some consideration in the MVP race.

That's why Mark Sanchez makes his MVP Watch debut at No. 10 even though the New York Jets have sometimes used game plans designed to minimize the young quarterback's impact on games.

Sanchez is not lighting up the NFL, but those stats and the Jets' 3-1 record are tough to ignore. Adding Santonio Holmes to the offense should only help.

Check out these numbers on Sanchez from ESPN Stats & Information:
Is Sanchez going to win the MVP this season? Most likely not. But if he's going to average two touchdowns and no interceptions per game while winning three-fourths of his starts, he's going to get consideration here.
