Rex himself said that Mcelroy didn't have an NFL arm when he first got here.
I'm pretty convinced Rex would like to move on from Sanchez, it's just that he can't. Tebow sucks... McElroy doesn't show much better.
Even next year it looks like there is very little in the draft. Next to nothing in free agency or trade either.
While I'm sure Rex wouldn't mind a Peyton or Brady, I don't think he's lost confidence in Mark. What's obvious is that he's lost confidence in the passing offense as a whole. Including the combination of Mark, pass protection, and MOST IMPORTANTLY the receiving options (or lack there of).
If say Bray and Keller play at a decent level Monday night, along with Kerley, that gives a decent weapon-set. Still not up to par, given Keller will probably still be hampered if he plays and Bray will be learning. Yet much better than the high school level squad of "weapons" that was on the field last week. That alone will most likely allow for a much different offensive plan.
Looking towards next year... Holmes, Braylon, Kerley, Hill n Keller make one heck of an arsenal that I completely expect Rex to allow Sanchez to work with freely. Basically giving the guy a very good chance to succeed and extend his career here in Jersey as Gang Green's QB.
