He is not supposed to be asked to throw the ball 50 times a game, especially with the craptastic receiving targets he's been given.
As usual, here's a heated Mark Sanchez thread on an angry Friday. Where's the Shonn Greene thread? Where's the Rex Ryan thread? Where's the Bart Scott David Harris thread? Where is the finger of blame and why isn't it being pointed at the right villains?
Mark Sanchez isn't playing well right now. We all know this. That isn't the point.
The point is that even with Mark playing weakly we are SUPPOSED to win it on DEFENSE and a POWER RUNNING GAME of which we have NEITHER. Talk about THAT.
I wish that Mark Sanchez was the problem. Truly, I do. Would be so simple if we could just remove him like Testaverde '02 and have a magical turnaround to a division title. He's not the problem. He's not the quick-fix. The defense SUCKS and the running game SUCKS and the coaching is MEDIOCRE and so the fact that the quarterback is weak doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.
Truth. Would be nice if we could just plug another QB in there and be a contender, but that's not the case. This team is seriously flawed, there's a lack of talent across the board.
The next QB is going to fail hard if we continue this philosophy of changing receivers yearly and failing to use high picks on game-changing skill position players.
