Fanecca was 100% better in the run game than Slauson who is a barely servicable tackle who is marginally okay because he's between a very good LT and a great Center. We squeezed the last year out of Jones who unlike Greene could actually stay on the field. Woody was servicable 2 years ago, he was done last year and our replacement went down in TC.
We had a much better D 2 years ago and we ran the ball more than any team in football 2 years ago. We were committed to it and matched up against loaded D's that were set up to stop the run. We didn't go to empty backfields all the time so we could go over the top easier out of play action, less decision making for the QB easier throws down the middle of the field.
We had 3 bad breaks this year. The RT going down, Greene's inability to take the load from LT and Mangold's injury. We needed Sanchez to step up a notch and instead without an allstar cast around him he has shown outright fear to stand in and make throws. He hasn't manned up and that's a fact.
I can live with it, the guy has to develop but the Jets need much better QB play with this team than they did the last 2 years.
