The special teams have fallen apart, what was once a rock-solid strength is now a big liability.
The coaching has gotten worse, critical Miami game and the team comes out flat, new offensive coordinator who's worse than the guy we got rid of, investment in first/second year front-seven players not being developed, clock management, timeouts, dumb penalties.
After you've exhausted all mental energy on those four areas in which our success is based, then you can have the luxury of taking shots at the quarterback position. It's a complimentary component of a bigger strategy. The fail of Shonn Greene or Muhammad Wilkerson is 10x more important than the fail of Mark Sanchez. Focus on that, people.
QBs are team leaders on and off the field. While their success surely depends on the talent they are surrounded with, the cream of the crop finds a way to win REGARDLESS of the talent around them. Maybe not SB's, but certainly offer more solidity and improvement than Mark has shown.
Teams can not be built from top to bottom with talent. 9 out of 10 times, you arent going to end up with a top notch defense, running game, and wide receiving corp.
He sucks man. The Talent around him is average, but we dont need to wait and dream about building a SB team around him in order to succeed.
Thats just stupid. No team takes that approach. At least sensibly.
