Simple as that. We don't need to blow up anything. We need a better QB, running a better offensive system, with a few select new pieces to improve areas of weakness. "Blow it up" is a simpletons answer to a complicated situation.
In Rex's version of G&P I really don't think you would have seen much of a difference regardless of who the QB was. In years 1&2 when they had a dominant Oline and running game the QB was a game manager , in that role any other QB would look much like Sanchez a caretaker at best.
In year 3 with the talent declining ( and Mangold injury key) the running game regressed,yet Rex stood by his system , this caused major frustration on the O and a clearly fractured the lockerroom.
Year 4 speaks for itself,just look at the offensive talent , Montana, Elway and Marino would have struggled to perform with this crap.
Bottom line Sanchez has never been in a progressive offensive in the NFL. No one can look at his past stats and say he'll suck this year. Sure he has some flaws ( poor pocket awareness, ball security) but these are things that can be overcome by good OC's by using him to his strengths instead of forcing a square peg into a round hole. We don't know what Sanchez is capable of this year no more than we know what Matt Flynn, Matt Moore or any QB that people are clamoring for. The Jets have taken a step forward by bringing in a strong OC , Rex has admitted he needs to step away from the G&P , let's see what Sanchez is capable of in a real offense. If he crashes & burns everyone gets their wish and he's gone next year when the cap hit makes much more sense.
