You ask me, it was the lack of an experienced Offensive coordinator and a more seasoned QB coach that caused Sanchezís decline.
This was Tannyís fault for he bought into Rexís ground and pound, defence first philosophy. Tanny should have made Sanchezís development his #1 priority, but he didnít.
There's no question that Mark is guilty of trying too hard. He's not guilty of being lazy or caring too little.
In games where we lose, our feature RB gains less than 50 yards and our D gives up 31 points. If you're the QB of that type of team, you have no choice but to run the plays that are called and make the best out of the constant 3rd and 9's you face. Like every other NFL quarterback, Mark touches the ball 100 times a game and makes 2 mistakes. Mark's mistakes get amplified because we are such a fragile team that we can't survive them.
