The next two years he was stripped of every offense of playmaker, lost his best wide receivers, had a tight end who couldn't stay healthy, lost his dump-off back, and had an offensive line that betrayed him. Not to mention, two offensive coordinator's last two seasons, and the Tim Tebow distraction.
There's a good chance that Mark Sanchez is done. There is also a good chance that Mark Sanchez needs some help and will return to solid NFL quarterback status and then grow from there. Let's find out.
Even if you take away his inaccuracy and put that blame on the receivers and you allow that our OC was terrible and the running game was bad, where do the turnovers fall?
Did we have such bad skill players in 2011 when holmes and keller were healthy? Because he was still a turnover machine.
Maybe you can blame the line for sacks, but who gets the blame for the RIDICULOUS amount of fumbles he had? Or his inability to know when to thrown the ball away.
Every defender of sanchez mentions his "talent", and there is no denying that, but the guy has zero football intellect and feel for the game. He didnt have it as a rookie and he doesnt have it after 4 seasons being a starter. Throwing the ball away and covering the football when you take a sack are BASIC principles that he simply doesnt get.
I think he should improve with the MM offense, lets all pray its as our backup.
