This statement bugs me. It's not like he's dropped off of some steep precipice to last place. He moved 5 places from last year and 3 from the year before.
27th out of 33* in 2011 (above Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford, Curtis Painter, John Skelton and rookies Blaine Gabbert & Christian Ponder)
29th out of 31 in 2010 (above rookie Jimmy Clausen and Derek Anderson)
29th out of 32 in 2009 (above JeMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn and Mathew Stafford)
* To qualify for passer rating, the player must have thrown at least 14 passes/game.
To put this in perspective, of the 11 QBs Sanchez was slightly more accurate than in the preceding 3 years: 1 is out of the league, 6 are backups and the other 4 improved in 2012 with Stafford ranked 11th, Christian Ponder ranked 5th, Bradford 24th and Gabbert 28th.
