The only reason Matt Cavanaugh is still with the team is because there were no decent replacements out there. Rex Ryan wanted to replace him last offseason.
So Sanchez shouldn't be crying about spilled milk here. He KNEW he would be getting a bum QB coach back. He KNEW he was going into his 4th season as a pro.
So shouldn't he take ownership of the situation and attempt to change it on his own? If he can run Jets West in an attempt to build chemistry with receivers, why can't he watch film of himself?
Not sure you are understanding any of what I wrote. It isn't meant as an excuse, it's an observation. Feel free to make your own and refute what I said. Or not. Either way is fine by me.
As for his taking ownership of it; if you do something regularly a certain way, wouldn't you think it would take someone of importance or a whole lot of people to point out to you that what you were doing could be done better before you actually listened to them? Most people would, that's why there's coaches.
Hard to take ownership of something when you don't know the problem. The first post I made on the subject pointed out that the other experts missed this tidbit. It's a spot-on assessment, one that may be missed by Sanchez and the coaching staff, not just the likes of Trent Dilfer. I know, what the hell does a poster on JI know, right?
