3. The reason Sanchez fumbled was because he was sacked on a completely unblocked blitzer. It was the third such hit he'd taken during the game and it's a miracle he didn't fumble the first two times.
4. I predicted this back in June. If that makes me the moron in your eyes, good.
Sparano and keller didnt push marks arm forward as he stared down keller long enough for a player to step in front of the throw....he did that on his own.
The bolded part above is completely and utterly not even close to what happened on the field. Yes an unblocked blitzer came free, that happens all the time, but instead of eating the football and losing the 4 yards that he would have with the sack, he tried to switch the ball in his hands, and throw it away, resulting in a fumble that is 100% his own fault. Not to mention, he has NEVER been able to adjust a protection at the line to protect himself, and this is his 4th season.
You are correct bad plays happen and these games come down to inches/plays, and when push comes to shove, sanchez never makes the ones we need. How many games will you have to see a fumble from the QB and a redzone int until you see that our "field general" should be holding a clipboard.
