Everybody on the offense has made mistakes, but I can't go back to the old way of thinking because Sanchez and only Sanchez is to blame for his fumbles. He's also mostly to blame for his interceptions and pick-6es, but that's open to debate. Poor ball protection is all on the player.
As far as being a true Jets fan, the more I get to know the players the more emotionally invested I become in the team. Can I still be a Jets fan if i dislike some of their fans?
Of course you can. If someone was no longer a real fan because they didn't like their fellow fans, the JI wouldn't exist.
I do think this organization ruined anything Sanchez had to offer originally, but by year 4 you should be able to know when to just get rid of the ball. You also can't blame his poor pocket awareness on the Oline.
