Try winning a Super Bowl with only short passes! It won't happen. Teams do not fear Sanchez beating them deep! They stop our run and wait for the short pass and then jump the route. But it is early and hopefully we will get a competant RT. Then we will find a new excuse for Sanchez if he retains the status quo.
