However the real reason we can do this is the New rookie salary cap. Check out how cheap these contracts are: http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/09000...rstround-picks
We wont be picking top 5. Picks after that make 2-3 million a year or less. It has NEVER been more appealing to draft a rookie QB. Combine that with Tebows super cheap salary as a backup and we will be fine.
We have been pretty good with a terrible QB ranked 28th-37th these last 3+ years. Im pretty sure we can find the next tannehill, Russell Wilson or Andy Dalton to duplicate Sanchez sub par performance while saving a TON of money. All of those guys are making 2-3 million a year tops. Dalton and Wilson are playing for 1.5 million a year or less.
Sanchez is a goner. There is no way he is finishing this season as our starting QB as we face Seahawks, Dolphins, Patriots and Cardinals who all stop the run. The bye week is looking real good for a QB change.
lol... a quarterback change in the bye week?!
let's say we are 4-4 going in to the bye... let's say New England is 5-3 at that point - leaving us 1 game out of first place... at that point, you want to take our quarterback that has led us to TWO AFC CHAMPIONSHIP games... played to a 100+ quarterback rating in the playoffs... and replace him with TIM TEBOW?!
Just to clarify again... You are arguing stats... telling us Mark Sanchez is a terrible quarterback.. but you want to replace him with TIM TEBOW!?!? We have no backup quarterback... we have a third string quarterback... our backup is nothing more than an athlete that can't throw the ball - but tries to...
There is going to be NO quarterback change - and if there is, we would then see what actually having a terrible quarterback is like... some of you guys are just out of your minds...
