It's a legit question! This team is losing talent each year. And next year we lose more players. Greene, maybe Keller, maybe Landry, Pace, Scott, who knows now Revis, etc... These players aren't great but they aren't addition by subtractions players either. We aren't loaded like we were 2-3 years ago. The one guy who could make up for players leaving and holes in other areas is your QB. And our QB does't help us. He's not a "franchise guy".
Let's see how this season plays out. But I think it's pretty clear Mark is not elite and won't ever be.
I'm not ready to give up on Sanchez for just anyone. But if the right deal came around, or a team with 2 QB's is looking to make a move or a Rivers was on the block, etc, this offseason could be the time to start looking. And with the rookie cap, maybe we invest in another high draft pick QB.
I know we are in season, this isn't a dump Sanchez rant from me. But as a team still in search of their franchise guy us fans can look a head.
I still as always hope Mark turns the corner. And I'd be the first to eat crow and say I was wrong about him ever becoming elite or someone who we can depend on to carry us. But he has too many flaws in his game, he's innaccurate and very easy to game plan around. Mark is what he is IMO, an average QB. Thus making him upgradeable should we get an opportunity.
