Pat Schurmur (power run guy, and likes to sustain offense with a "West Coast Style" passing game.)
Al Saunders (very respected offensive mind, Don Coryell trained and great with WRs)
Ken Whisenhunt (power running game and deep, play action passing game)
Norv Turner (play-caller, 'seen it all')
Chan Gailey ("run-first" guy, but likes to get the ball deep too)
After today's press conference sounds like the Jets, and Rex might move to the spread, here is a link for anyone interested in reading about this offense, and how easy it actually makes things for a QB, and in this excerpt I'm gonna post below shows why M Sanchez can't succeed in this league, and IMO sounds like he is describing M Sanchez.
A big factor in pass protection is the quarterback's concept of how much time it should take for him to get the ball away. Many young quarterbacks have an unrealistic idea of what their protection should be like, and how much time the pro and college quarterbacks they watch on tv get to throw the ball. I coached one such quarterback this year. Early on in the season, if he was hit after the pass or he was pressured, at all, he would get down on the linemen. Over the summer, I had worked extensively with him on his drop and delivery, but he didn't get an adequate sense of the timing. What resulted was a kid who looked like an All-American in 7-on-7, but fell apart once a line was in front of him.
I addressed this by watching games on tv and timing how long it took for them to get the ball out of their hands from the snap of the ball. I timed both pros and colleges, and even timed one high school game (you'd be amazed with the HS kid from Buffalo who was beating the clock on the collegiates and the pros!). I tallied the results and was surprised, myself: The average was 2.3 seconds! I took this information to my QB, and drilled him in practice with a stop watch. The result was 209 yards passing the next game, against one of the toughest teams in the state.
Quarterbacks must develop a clock in their heads. There are two elements that go into getting the ball away quickly: 1) How quickly they set and make the decision to throw, and; 2) How quick a release they have (meaning, once they've made the decision to throw, how quickly they get rid of the ball). If their mechanics are lacking, they can only improve this time by making the decision faster, thereby reducing the number of reads they can make. If they have great mechanics, then they can take an extra read. Either way, you must drill the QB to get rid of the ball in the time you expect.
One more thing. The QB cannot wait for eye contact from the receiver before he delivers the ball. This should also be drilled, with the QB throwing on the break and the receiver looking for the ball in the air.
This element of time will assist greatly with pass protection.

Anyone have any clue of OC candidates who are willing to implement these ideas into a pro offense?
