dr33, I agree that if you draft a guy like Tannehill 8th overall, he'd be better be the real deal...it doesn't have to happen right away (Bledsoe was a #1 overall pick, and it wasn't until Year 4 that he really put it all together, though he showed flashes of what he could be at times in his first three seasons, and was almost the sole reason the Pats made the playoffs in his second year), but it HAS to happen.
When you think about it, the Jets actually did a pretty good job overcoming Sanchez ultimately not working out...they got to two AFC Championship games in his first two seasons, and only really had one truly bad year with him as their starting QB (last season). It's not often a team can bail on #5-overall QB pick like Sanchez (I know he got hurt, but had he remained healthy, I don't think he would've lasted long) and not have that move set them back for two or three seasons.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
