For better or worse, they were heavily invested in Mark Sanchez regardless of the contract extension or not.
Now, that certainly doesn't make me condone the extension Tanny gave him. And that does damage his credibility but I would still support one more opportunity for him.
You certainly can't criticize the move in drafting Mark Sanchez. He was considered a blue chipper by all of the draftniks. It was worth taking a shot at, especially when you consider we had no other viable options at QB at that time. Drafting a QB is ALWAYS a crap shoot and that will never change.
So I guess I'm off your imaginary ignore-list, huh?
