I really didn't see this year coming though, I hoenstly thought Mark was going to be good (not just competent, but good) under a different coordinator.
The 32 TDs is misleading though and a result of play selection on goal to go situations. I don't care that Sanchez ran for 6 TDs, he is no threat as a runner. When RG3 gets a rushing TD, it means something becuase his rushing and mobility are such a large part of his game. When Sanchez gets one, it's because we were at the 2 yard line and chose not to give it to the RB.
Fact is, 2011 Sanchez led the league in turnovers, still couldn't complete 60% of his throws, and cost this team a playoff spot with an embarrassing finish to the season
