What are Rex and Sparano supposed to do? Blame Tannenbaum for the crappy personnel.
but Sanchez is not without talent
So is Jamarcus Russell. It's his 4th year. his 'talent' is irrelevant in this point in his career. It's time to see results and production.
When? You mean when he has a top class offensive line, an excellent receiving corps, a dominant running game, and one of the best defenses in the league to keep the team in games?actually excels in certain situations
And he sure as hell didn't excel in 09 and 2010 even with a great supporting cast around him.
Fact is even when the situation is perfect (i.e. he has time in the pocket and an open receiver down the field) there's still a good chance he'll screw it up as Sanchez will either not see an open guy or will just fling it 5 feet over his head.
He missed Holmes for a wide open TD in Pitt this year, threw a duck to Cromartie against the Texans which should have been a TD if he actually led him, and was late finding Hill who had a step on his man against the Pats.
3 plays in 3 losses this year where he had a clean pocket and open receiver and just misses his guy entirely leaving points on the board. Those plays fall entirely on him he makes those throws and Jets have a legit shot at winning those games.
Sanchez sure as hell isn't the only problem on the team but he is a putrid QB. His surrounding cast isn't great obviously, but its getting to the point where calling Sanchez mediocre is wildly, wildly, overrating him.
For all the Rex hate going on the board, it would be nice to see what he could do if he had even an average QB on offense sometime during his tenure here.
