It is only because those two areas SUCK that Mark Sanchez is being asked to do too much on an offense that's not constructed to win that way. He's the SCAPEGOAT for Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum.
Typical JI, blaming the wrong people again and again.
I'm late to the Sar party, but this post needs to be said again (I know there was a whole thread about this..). The Jets have been constructed to win ugly, by Rex and Tannenbaum. We are suppose to win games 13-7, or 17-14. With that margin of victory, we could actually lose the game instead.
We all said it in the spring and summer that we have no receivers, and that if there was a god, Braylon would be back with us. Mark Sanchez may not be able to hit a barn in a consistent basis, but I have not seen his WR's bail him out if he does.
Our number one receiver Kerley (all 5'9" of him) cannot take it to the house for some easy TD's the way Victor Cruz or a top NFL receiver can. This happened at least twice this year. In the most recent game if Kerley doesn't get caught from behind (again!), the Keller interception would not have happened. I don't even want to mention the drops!
If any of you play touch or flag football as a QB on regular basis, you would know that playing with mediocre WR's is the most frustrating thing, especially in the NFL level were you get 3-4 sec's on average to get rid of the football.
One last note, the Tebow thing has to stop. Rhythm QB's like Mark cannot be pulled out after they complete a pass. This thing is so dumb various commentators (Simms, Gannon) point out that it doesn't benefit either of the QB's. I dont care who they start as long as the Jets win some M'Fing games!
