The real reason Sanchez has to go
Look at the tape of last weeks game and observe the expression on Sanchez's face while both on the sideline and coming on the field with the offense. Rather than looking like a leader who wants to come out kick some ass he looks like someone who prefers to be somewhere else. His confidence if gone, shot, evaporated and it's the current crop of Jet management and coaches who put him in this situation.
Any QB needs to have a help to win games. Brady has his tight ends and Welker but earlier in the season when his OL was weak even he was having issues getting the ball down the field. One could argue that a lot of Romo's problems, in addition to poor decision making, is because of his weak OL.
On paper the Jets offensive line does not look that bad but let's be honest the three pro bowl players on the left side of the line have regressed in their play and the right side of the OL is below average at best.
When defenses blitz, as the Dolphins did last week, receivers are supposed to recognize it and run short routes to get open but our receivers ran the route that was called and did not recognize that they needed to get open so Sanchez could have got rid of the ball sooner.
Now we have a QB who has taken a lot of hits, lost the ball during so and is being asked to "do more". Sure he needs to develop a better pocket presence but right now his confidence is gone and he can thank Rex and Tanny for that.
I personally like Rex Ryan but if he lost, and he seems to be lost, and feels that the team should perform because they had a good week of practice and that the team is loaded is talent than he is not what the Jets need. The sad truth is that the players are not responding to his motivation anymore. He was supposed to be a defensive mastermind yet our defense takes steps back year after year.
Time to clean house and start over and draft a franchise QB who can inspire and lead and achieve in arguably the hardest sports market in the US
