As much as people want to make excuses for Mark and blame his issues on others, it can't be denied that he just isn't that good. With good receivers, his ceiling is average.
Yes, he made bad throws , every QB does. In a normal offense they get masked by the fact that the QB can make amends, in Rex's offense there's just not that many chances. Look at Eli last year only 3 less picks than Sanchez , but in the Giants offense they don't lock the ball away a) when they get a lead, b) to try and establish a gameplan by running first. He might be average , he might still be very good and there's a chance he might just suck again , but at least the offense has a chance to move out the dark ages this season. Running the G&P in today's NFL is like trying to play a trombone in a phone booth it just doesn't fit.
