Why not work on developing a better team rather than just throwing a kid in there and watching him sink like Sanchez?
The Jets had a top tier O-line when Sanchez came in the league and some pretty good playmakers. They had the best running game in the league in 2009 and one of the tops in 2010. (might have mixed those two years)

It is known that good-great QB's make something out of nothing. I don't believe the Jets failed Sanchez in that they put no talent around him (at first), but they failed the organization by investing too much into a QB who started 1 whole year at USC.
