scouevas commented on How to explain the failure of the Tannenbaum era? Mark Sanchez.Haha, Obviously you have never played football. What wins games? Having a higher score than the other team. What scores? Touchdowns. Last Year, Sanchez was 9th in the NFL in touchdowns. This year he was bad ill give you that.But to blame the poor performance on Sanchez is just ridiculous. Tannenbaum is 75% to blame. It was his job to secure players/coaches to win games. He did not. The Jets offense line, besides Mangold, was horrible. In order to be a successful quarterback you have to have time to throw the ball; Sanchez did not. You also have to have receives to throw the ball to; Sanchez did not. Starting on the Jets were players that would not start on any other team and this is all Tannenbaum's fault. Also, each time a ne offense coordinator is named a new offense has t be learned. Have you ever seen an NFL playbook? They are multiple-volumne encyclopedias. These take years to learn. Sanchez had a couple of months, with a poor inexperienced team. Also, for a quarterback to be successful he has to have the faith of this team and front office. When the Jets got Tebow, that faith, no matter what was said, was called into question in Sanchez's eyes. This should not have affected him, but with all the other factors, I'm sure it did. So blame falls mostly to Tannenbaum, the rest can be equally split between Sanchez, Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano. Last year, Sanchez was 9th in the NFL in touchdown passes and 15th in total yards, these #'s were typical of a 3rd year quarterback who has never had been properly developed. This year Sanchez was bad but let the blame fall where it should: in the fired hands of Sparano and Tannenbaum.
