The breakdown of Sanchez's play could have criticized a lot of things...but criticizing the interception play is a little silly IMO
Agree to disagree.
In NFL terms, that is a wide open deep pass. The safety is already turned and running toward Gates before the ball leaves the quarterback's hands.
I'm not saying Sanchez is terrible, but he's leaving plays on the field, which has been the case with him from the very beginning. All quarterbacks do it, the key is to limit these incidents, and strike more often than not.
In this instance, a great quarterback looks off the receiver and hits Kerley for a touchdown. All the variables were perfect ... good protection, multiple receivers with single coverage and gaining separation. He made the worst decision possible.
