THANK YOU!!!!I posted this in another thread last week...
"Sanchez has been coached into a QBot...so he's not a QB anymore. All of his good football instincts and mobility, that he showed in college, has been coached out of him. He's a trauma case that may never recover. IMO...it's best for him to move on and try to revive his career elsewhere.
I remember Sanchez in his first game in Houston against the Texans. He moved out of the pocket and ran towards the near sideline to avoid pressure, saw a Jets receiver, all the way over on the opposite sideline...running down the field and waving at Sanchez for the ball. Sanchez quickly flicked his wrist on the run, and delivered an accurate pass to the receiver. It was about 35 yards across the field, and about 10-15 yards forward, for a 1st down.
It wasn't an RGIII play. Or a Cam Newton one. Nor a Russell Wilson one. It was a Sanchez play. It was what made him effective in college...throwing well on the run. Those other three were allowed to use their instincts and improvise what they did well in college, and incorporate it against NFL defenses.
IMO...it was important for Sanchez to be encouraged to use his mobility to throw well on the run, at the very beginning of his Jets career. Cause he was competing against NFL defenses on the experience of only 16 college starts. But Schotty and his playbook...with Cavanaugh and Rex not objecting...decided that Sanchez had to be groomed into a pocket passing robot. Having to do this with all that motion nonsense that Favre wouldn't put up with. It succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams.
Mark Sanchez...QBot NYJ."
In the last year of Mike Singletary as HC of the 49ers, Alex Smith was a complete mess at QB. His spirit seemed broken and his confidence shattered. Pretty much what Sanchez is today. If Smith had one more year with Singletary...and him bringing in another new OC and playbook...I think Smith might have sucked on a gun and blown his brains out.
Instead he got Jim Harbaugh as an HC. And he's played well ever since. Even though he's not currently starting for the 49ers. Smith is now thought of as a viable candidate by fans and FO's...to be a starting QB for their team. Very few are saying that about Sanchez. And under this present Tanny-Rex regime...Sanchez will continue to fail next year too.
Once that happens...I hope Woody blows the whole thing up. I don't believe Tanny should get another HC to work with. Or draft another young QB and overseer his development. Sorry to say...Rex isn't equipped to do that job either.
IMO...the baton should then be passed over to someone with a very strong football background. Player...scout...coach...HC...GM...at least some combinations of these should be on that individual's resume. Added to this, he should have a reputation for talent evaluation and development. And also possess a clear vision for this NYJ football team. And a blueprint for achieving it.
Anything short of a real football man calling the shots...will result in a continuation of a Circle Jerk Jets operation, that we're all too familiar with. Round and round the NYJ will go...taking maybe a decade or two...before getting a sniff at another AFCCG...as this current one has done...twice.
Right now patience is needed. Woody needs to have a carefully thought out plan in place before taking any action. For now...he should let the Tanny-Rex-Sanchez dynamic play itself out in 2013.
After that...blow this up and implement the new plan. Headed by an individual that has spent 20 or more years on his life in various football capacities.
A football man.
