1st round pick/Super Bowl mvp Santonio Holmes
1st round pick Dustin Keller
2nd round pick Stephen Hill
Sanchez has talent around him. He's just got to utilize it.
That's not the point. The point is that good teams continue to invest in first and second round offensive talent.
Packers already had Rodgers and stud receivers --> still went after Randall Cobb
Saints already had Pierre Thomas / Bush(Sproles)--> still went after Mark Ingram
Giants already had Nicks/Cruz -- > still went after Randle
We can't completely avoid offensive playmakers, and then scratch our head when the QB has no one to throw to...
On my mobile ESPN app Sanchez was ranked the #23 QB in the NFL - pretty much where many here on JI put him.
The only guys below Sanchez were rookies or 2nd year players (which included Luck and RGIII, both of whom I'd rank higher than Sanchez in terms of potential). So that means Sanchez was the lowest ranked experienced QB in the NFL. And the arrow for him pointed "down" due to a lack playmakers in the Jets offense.
well he isn't. does that mean they shouldn't stockpile offensive weapons to help out the offense? it's as if the front office bailed on the offense when they saw sanchez wasn't a star, and figured they needed to win with a suffocating defense.
Well if this was their thinking it means that they are dumb as dirt!!!
