So since they don't have Brady they should just abandon the offense and put the QB in horrible passing situations. No because they don't have Brady they should have looked at more creative ways to put the QB in better passing situations ( ie first down passes , screens, throwing deep on occasion to open up the running game) instead of ignoring it and running Greene into his Oline's back for two yards at a clip.
Sanchez turned the ball over via throws because he was trying to do too much, force throws to avoid sacks and keep the O on the field. We saw firsthand what happens when a QB plays the Rex system to a T when McElroy got the start , he didn't force throws and took sacks when no one was open. Sanchez could have done that and absorbed 100 + sacks this year, then everyone here would have been saying he has no confidence to throw the ball, he sucks.
