Fouts said something in the 3rd quarter, when Sanchez has a perfect pocket, time to go through his progressions he can be very accurate and effective, however as soon as something goes wrong or he gets pressured a little he just becomes a mess. If you watch the NFL you are just not going to have a clean pocket every play, your QB needs to make plays when the play breaks down.
We had the same thing with a qb named chad. With him, it was mostly physical limitations. With a clean pocket, he could step in and drive the ball. With pressure, he couldnt. With Sanchez, its more of a mental, decision making issue. When he has time, he'll find the open guy and hit him. With the first sign of pressure, all bets are off.
After 3.5 yeats, the game has not slowed down for him like it has for other successful qbs. It may at some point down the line, but for the Jets to decide (after this season) to count on it happening soon, is wishful thinking.
Sometimes you have to suck at the right time. When we get the top pick the best player in the draft is Keyshawn Johnson.
The only reason I wouldn't give up anther 1st in this draft for a B is because there are like 6 great prospects coming out this year. I was hesitant at 1st but OK I think it is obvious at this point Sanchez is not a pro QB and no one really believes in Tebow or he'd be starting by now. So I think we should take a good look at our options for next year.
I love this years class and right now a 1st rounder sounds good to me. We likely do not get a top pick but there is a very deep class here. Geno Smith, Matt Barkley, Tyler Wilson, Tyler Bray, EJ Manuel, and Landry Jones are all 1st round quality QBs. Even Logan Thomas has a Cam Newton quality to him. That guy is a monster. Brey reminds me a lot of Sanchez only more ballzy. Even if they pass on QB in the 1st I'd be thrilled with Manuel or Landry in the 2nd. Really how many teams are looking at 1st 2nd round QBs this year. KC, Buff, Zona maybe Oak and Philly. We have to get one of those 6. I'm actually loving Manuel right now. 6'4 240 fast and has like a 70 % comp right now.
