Not even Joe Montana had a fighting chance behind that offensive line, not against that Ravens front 7. Mangold was out in replace of a undrafted rookie in Baxter at the Center position. Baxter was so bad where we had to bring in Vlad, Vlad was so bad where we had to bring Baxter back into the game etc, etc. Sanchez was quarterbacking behind a disaster offensive line against Baltimore.
Exactly. That Ravens game was ridiculous. The fact that we benched our backup center and moved around the entire line to accommodate that is good enough of a point to me. It was a brutal game. And if you take away 5 turnovers, its still not where you want him to be but its substantially better.
Look, I realize where Sanchez is. He's not a top 20 quarterback right now in this league. I think he's around there BUT he just isn't there. He has the potential to be a top 15, no doubt in my mind. The problem is, he has to take that next step. I've been saying it for the past 3 offseasons but I truly believe that with a chain off his leg (Schotty fired) he can make that step. As Jet fans all we can really do is hope. And I guess you trolls can hope he keeps at the pace he is.
