But overall, he will always be inconsistent at best unless the lightbulb suddenly turns on.....Who knows, maybe it will down the line, but we can't bank on it
This is the whole situation in a nutshell. He just doesnt have a feel for the game. All the pyhysical stuff he is fine with, which is why he has been able to stick around for so long, we are all waiting for him to "get it". But it simply isnt going to happen.
A lot of QB is about your arm and accuracy obviously, but the upper echelon guys in the league understand protections, feel pressure without seeing it, manage in game situations, throw the ball away, and take sacks without turning it over. Sanchez simply doesnt do any of that which is why he is so handicapped.
