c'mon, you know better than that. the patsie lead was built on once in a lifetime mistakes all happening at the same time. not all of it was because of sanchez. had the jets scored on that possession in the 2nd qtr the game might have been very different.
in the cards game, sanchez started out poorly and was getting any better. the game was not out of reach but it was doubtful that sanchez could have gotten the points. it's moot because mcelroy not only got the winning td but he also put them in a position to extend the score. and it's not like the cards defense is so bad. a stupid sanchez pick six would have lost the game.

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?
