The special teams were HORRENDOUS vs Miami! Even Westhoff called it "the worst game of my career!"
Do u know how long Westhoff has been coaching?
SAR 1 is right, you can't throw Mark out with the bathwater until you see what he can do with players around him & legitimate threat at running back.
You put McCoy behind Mark & see if DBs & safeties are crawling all over his azz at the snap of the ball.
Greene makes it to easy for the defense to cheat, because he's not a threat to get to the next level so it squeezes the field that much more. No one here is saying Sanchez is great, no one, but we have seen him have really good games.
Remember that the Chargers once traded Drew Brees. Brees obviously is a more accurate QB but he still "GOT BETTER" later in his career.
Look, in no way did sanchez lose the pats game for us, by himself. His number were excellent for most of that game.
However what I am saying is that he does not make the 1 or 2 plays per game that are necessary to elevate his team. He can "not lose" a game for you, but to win in the league you need your QB to be a leader and make plays when it counts.
We all blame hill for his drop vs the pats....but what if sanchez had simply hit him earlier in the game when he was wide open in the endzone? That is a pass he HAS to hit.
What about pitts, where our defense couldnt get off the field. Would things have changed if sanchez hit a wide open holmes in the endzone and we went up 14-0 in the first quarter?
We dont have the 1999 Rams on offense here, but we have enough talent to not be able to put up more then 10 points against miami at home.
