Same goes for Sanchez the Mighty Turnover Machine. No one is scared of him via the air. They know he'll toss at least 4 potential INT's a game, and fumble at least once. Thats 5 possible turnover a game just from Sanchez's bad play.
They know any pressure means a sack or an INT or a fumble. They don't even need to blitz, because Sanchez just sits there lie a blind molerat in the pocket. Too dumb even to throw it away.
Hate to break it to you my SOJF friend, but Holmes, Kerley and Keller are all absolutely starters on many other teams in this league. On some teams, any one of these three could be a pro-bowler tbqh.
Our RB's are individually weak, amde weaker due to our absolute non-threat at QB. Combined, they are absolutely a servicable comittee.
Again, we have a choice, we can either cut the entire roster to get better....or we can cut Sanchez to get better.
I know which one is vastly more realistic.
Easy counter - the Jets had the top ranked rushing offense in 2009 with Sanchez having roughly the same QB rating (I didn't look this up but I'm sure it's close).
Also, I want us to draft a QB and sign one in FA. But I'm not so big of a homer to think that we can score enough points with these receivers and runningbacks. We have to use more of our resources on offense. The talent is just not there, every analyst and fans from every other fan base know this.
