There was no reason to move up when a guy with better measurables would have been on the board in our initial draft slot.
That guy would have been Josh Freeman.
As you state, we traded up for Sanchez. Had to. There were no good prospects in free agency, Favre wasn't returning, Pennington had left.
It sounded good on paper- rookie HC and rookie QB growing up together. Problem is, Tannenbaum indulged Rex's defense with all the support in the world and he ignored Sanchez.
