The talent doesn't matter if you can't read a damn defense.
My tickets will be up on StubHub if this comes true.
You want to say that Mark Sanchez isn't a great quarterback and I'll be the first in line to agree with you.
But when you say "he is the number one reason this team is in the shape it's in" is ludicrous. This team is a train wreck because:
1. We have a head coach that has been running the wrong strategy. Ground & Pound doesn't work. The head coach admitted this. Don't argue with me.
2. Because of #1, the passing game has been ignored. The draft picks and FA money instead put on the defense.
3. Because of #1 and #2, we've had the wrong offensive coordinators, bad passing personnel, and thus a disregarded and unsupported quarterback.
So "what's wrong" with the Jets is Rex Ryan's 2009-2012 strategy which went out of its way to ignore the passing game for the last two seasons. Mark Sanchez has been made into a bad quarterback. He might be able to be salvaged.
