In most cases, you will suffer through at least 2 really bad years. I dont want that.
I want Sanchez to work, not because I like the guy, but for the team.
Basically you are right, but you can use Ryan, and Flacco as better examples if they don't get to the promised land, and maybe they will, there is a possible 5 years wasted, hell McNabb had 10 years. Additionally, this team has more than just a QB issue on O. Stick to your guns.
