Chad Pennington's failures were on Chad Pennington. He was set up to succeed but never did. Mark Sanchez, with a lot less help, did more in two seasons than Chad Pennington did in a decade.
It would be very simple if our problem was just Mark Sanchez. I wish it was our only problem, to be honest, would make things so much easier. Unfortunately the problems go way, way deeper than that.
I agree with this. On THIS team..Chad would be unable to generate any offense. He would, IF LUCKY, look like the Chad of the 2005 PITT loss. You know...unable to generate an offensive TD.
