This is how I rank'em:

-D3 receivers who drop passes
-Losing 2 of the best athletes on the team
I believe a good running game helps the QB quite a bit AND on the other side of the ball a good pass rush can help when the offense screws up.
I think this excercise explains why our viewpoints differ when it comes to Sanchez.
Take all of those problems, eliminate all of the plays where they are a big problem. That leaves the 6 or 7 plays a game where:
A good play call is made.
The Receiver runs a good pattern and is open.
The oline gives the QB lots of time.
The Qb still misses those plays as often as not. Forget all the other bad aspects of the team and look at plays where we have a chance to make a big play. (Classic example the Cromartie deep pass) and he still fugs it up at least half the time.
