There are those who say that Sanchez is bad because of a poor supporting cast and I can agree with that to a point. The fact is that he keeps making the same mistakes over and over, telegraphs his throws and has very poor pocket presence.
I do expect a LOT of changes next year but I expect Rex and Sanchez will be back.
And how are they going to learn something new that they haven't seen in 4 years against the 28th ranked pass defense?
Moreover - and exactly to your point, they need to find out what they have - which is EXACTLY why McElroy should be playing.
