[QUOTE=southside;4501321]It's hard to be accurate when your offensive line breaks down before your receivers can complete their routes and you've been pummeled and INJURED from the start of the season. Remember, Mark was contemplating having surgery on his shoulder. This isn't going to affect accuracy?
If you think Mark Sanchez is inaccurate then that's your opinion. It's ill informed but it's an opinion none the less. I saw Mark Sanchez throw the deep route with incredible accuracy for 2 seasons. When you take away his best receivers and replace them with a selfish prick like Holmes and a washed up ex con and mix in a rookie from the slot who appeared to be the most solid of the bunch... what kind of success do you expect a QB to have? Especially when you're constantly in 3rd and long. [B]WRs couldn't beat the CBs. Holmes quit playing. Plaxico couldn't do anything[/B] and lacked anything near speed or explosiveness.
No, Mark isn't perfect. But he was straddled with the [B]worst OC in recent memory[/B] who is clearly living off the reputation of his old man. [B]No run game, no WRs, no protection[/B] = no success. I'm surprised he wasn't seriously injured with the beatings he took game in and out. He got speared with no calls from the refs. He was hit late constantly, no calls from the refs. When he was hit clean it was coming just as much from our #4 overall over rated LT as it was from the most inept RT in the league. If he wasn't anything but a gamer he'd have been Penningtoned after week 4 when the Ravens just destroyed him.
All that said, [B]if the defense does it's job JUST ONCE[/B] on any of the 4 or 5 game ending drives that they gave up after Sanchez gave them the lead then he'd probably have added another playoff win to his resume and this would be a moot point. However, he's been challenged and he should be challenged and he's accepted that challenge in a way that I think will bring about great progress from him.[/QUOTE]
The classic Sanchez Apologist post. Throwing [B][U]everybody[/U][/B] on the team under the bus to absolve him of any blame and not acknowledging a single flaw in Sanchez's game. Nope, Mark is awesome, it's everybody else who absolutely sucks, even the defense fails him. Poor guy.
