But at least he wouldn't have been responsible for awarding the other team points. You do understand that if Sanchez doesn't throw that pick, the defense would have at least had an opportunity not to allow the Giants to score, right?
Throwing picks is essentially giving away points. I mean how many times have you seen teams that have an absolutely fabulous outing offensively? They look like juggernauts putting up massive yardage numbers and yet still lose because they had 4 turnovers? I've seen it more times than I can count.
And the whole idea of saying anything like, "BESIDES that ONE throw" is merely covering up the facts.
