If you put Brady or Manning on this team at best they are .500 Sanchez has become the scapegoat.
Do you really believe if we had gotten manning we would be .500 at best???
How does the pittsburgh game change if our QB hits wide open holmes in the endzone?
Do we beat the texans if our QB doesnt throw 2 INTs?
Does the NE game change if our QB doesnt miss a wide open HIll in the endzone?
What about Seattle if we score a TD instead of yet another redzone INT. Could peyton have recognized that we had the wrong protection on, leaving bruce irvin unblocked and changed it?
Look, there are holes on this team (any NFL team giving Clyde Gates menaingful snaps has an issue), but good QBs make their teams better, thats a fact.
Im not comparing rogers to sanchez as that is ludicrious, but rogers hasnt had a 100 yard rusher in over a year. He has been sacked more then sanchez, lost his #1 and #2 WR for different parts of the year and yet still leads his team to wins.
Our QB cant hit a wide open stephen hill in the middle of the endzone, and instead makes the same redzone mistake he made as a rookie.
Its not all on him, but he is a HUGE reason for the teams failure.
