I think he is salvageable, but you’re going to have to build things back up. You have to run the ball. He has to be built back up.”
Westhoff said when the Jets went to the AFC Championship games in 2009 and 2010, the team had the right mix around Sanchez with a good running game, good defense and good special teams.
“I’m not necessarily a believer that he regressed,” Westhoff said. “I think the first two years when we went to the AFC Championship Game, we were a very good overall football team. … Mark was part of that package. That package dissipated just as much as Mark did. I think sometimes he gets the burden thrust on him. I don’t think there was any drastic difference in Mark. I just think the whole thing wasn’t as good and there was more pressure put on him.”
Good thing he was a st coach his entire career .....
