You don't draft QB high and then not have a verifiable offensive mind to mentor him...Schottenheimer, Cavanaugh and now Sparano are NOT guys that are known as developers of QBs..and with Rex as HC? Sanchez never had a chance here.
We should have figured that out when Rex sprang his 'red,yellow and green' system on Sanchez during the first or second season. They wanted him to be a QB some weeks, and a game manager next. Rex and his boys MIGHT have been OK for a QB with an impressive college resume with a lot of game experience but that was NOT Sanchez..he needed a mentor or a tutor, and we didn't give one.
