The benching of Sanchez has been debated for weeks. Why did Rex pull the trigger this week after having such strong feelings about him as the starter?
- The player that was traded for 2 picks is injured the week a major change at the QB position happens? With so much controversy this trade brought all year I find it fascinating that Tebow isnt dressed for the game when they pulled Sanchez. More and more it seems that all were not on board with this trade as claimed.
- At 35-3 against the Patriots, Sanchez was still "Rex guy" but in a 3-0 game he wasnt? I dont get Rex line of thinking on this
- McElroy doesnt dress the entire year, only dresses because of an injured Tebow, and goes into a 3-0 game with still the slimmest of chances to get to the playoffs?
I have be debating this with Demo on another thread... In the end I really don't think the coaching staff is high on any of the QBs on the roster... Whoever starts this week will be very telling into how the coaching staff feels. Maybe Tebow is inactive again just so the organization can save face on the trade.
Still won't surprise me to see Sanchez start this week although I would like to see what McElroy looks like with some extended NFL action.
