Both of these guys combined have been in the league a shorter time than Sanchez, yet they're both better than him in every conceivable way.
A subpar supporting cast has dick to do with Sanchez routinely chucking balls into triple coverage, sailing balls over receivers heads, or just flatout not seeing guys that are wide open.
This f*cking guy even makes a routine 2 yard checkdown look painfully difficult.
The kid sucks, the kid is finished, the kid was never that good to begin with.
Bradford? Tannehill? That's the standard of quarterback you're looking for to lead the Jets?
The Jets are built to be a Ground & Pound team, to win it with the rushing attack. Mark Sanchez was not drafted to be Dan Marino. He was drafted to hand the ball off to an elite running back leading a Top 5 rushing attack. So when the RB sucks and we can't run, and the D is porous and we fall behind early, surprise, Mark Sanchez is asked to throw the ball 40 times to an offense not built for an air attack.
And it's surprising that he is no good? And it's surprising we get a lot of turnovers? It's no surprise. It's expected. That's what happens when your head coach has a strategy that fails. If I build a great sailboat and fashion a crew to sail around the world and the wind dies and the sails burn, who is to blame when the crew can't paddle the course around the world?
