Are you saying that in year 5 with another group of offensive players he will get it and produce? What will change between year 4 and year 5? In those first two years he had a top 5 OL even if his targets weren't phenomenal he had ample players to get close to that and once again he didn't.
For what it's worth, history has shown that every QB would be better off anywhere but the Jets.
If you actually watched game film of Sanchez, and figured out what went wrong in each particular situation you would see a marked change in Sanchez over the years. Early on he made rookie mistakes, and was careless and reckless, but aggressive. By the end of year two, and into the playoffs, he was progressing pretty well, and coming up big in the biggest spots. He lost his confidence along the way, and had his aggression coached out of him. He is not the type of QB that could ever be a game manager. Think Brett Farve afraid to make a mistake. Now he's making mostly the right decisions, but he is consistently late letting go of the ball, and he never had great accuracy. It's not bad decisions that cause the turnovers. It's holding on to the ball too long. Most of his interceptions are actually on check downs, which is why they're so often returned. He needed to be a high risk/reward type, and they've ruined him. He has no idea what to do out there at this point and it's doubtful he'll ever recover.
