So what is the lesson of the the Mark Sanchez disaster?

High-profile bust, especially at the QB position, should serve as a cautionary tale for the league on traits to avoid in a prospect. What can we learn from the Mark Sanchez experience?

There are many things we can learn, but I have narrowed it down to these 3 for me...

1) Don't give a huge contract to a QB who hasn't earned it with their play.
If a QB is horrible, he is horrible. And there is no shame in immediately trying to find his replacement. See Carolina with Jimmy Clausen.

2.) Build the scheme to fit the quarterbacks's skillset.
How many times do we see a square peg being squeezed into a round hole? If you're QB fits a WCO, run a WCO. Pretty simple concept.

3.) Put pieces around him to succeed.
If that means completely ignoring the defense for a year, do it. In this day and age, a franchise QB trumps everything.
