[QUOTE=JetsNeedNewton;4298940]That is exactly the issue, as you and several others said. When Sanchez is 100% on instinct his decisions and accuracy improve greatly.
But that said, can you really make a career on instincts? I can't fault the coaches for trying to take him to the next level but there is where the criticism is valid. Maybe he can't make it at the thinking, deliberate level? He'd have a better chance if the OLine gave him time though.
Did you see NO on Thursday? Not only did the Oline give Brees time, they were clearing passing lanes because Brees is not so tall. What could Sanchez do with that kind of support?[/QUOTE]
I was thinking this exact thing yesterday....who is the Saints QB Coach? Would that guy be someone to bring in here to implement the same type of play design, especially in the blocking scheme? Brees is over an inch shorter then sanchez never has the ball batted down.
As far as the coaches quelling his instincts....sanchez is SO tentative to run, its maddening. I know he got hurt ONCE, but he is a pretty mobile guy...and routinely has an opportunity to get good yardage running, but he always hesitates, and winds up getting 3 yards when he could have had 10 and also added a dimension for the defense to have to track. That is all on Rex trying to keep him healthy and hurting his ability to make plays.
