Once McElroy won that game Sanchez should of never been put back in. I think everybody on the planet knew Sanchez was done except Rex. Rex is to blame here. Now Rex has picked the right guy no matter how much flack he gets for picking McElroy over Tebow and I want to see what McElroy can do. Why? Because if McElroy does well these next 2 weeks I think he's the starter going into next season and I don't think the Jets are too far away from being a very good team. For some reason even without any decent receivers I think McElroy will show us something. At least with McElroy we have hope that he can be what we want him to be. With Sanchez all the hope is gone.
The week after he pulled Sanchez Rex didn't dress McElroy while he basically took the ball out of Sanchez hands which seemed to work. It was the 2012 version of color coding plays. Mark just didn't get it and as we all know went on to throw 4 picks the following week.
Rex desperately needed Sanchez to finally step up and be the game manager the rest of the way and Sanchez desperately failed. Due to all the skill player injuries at that point in the season there wasn't much downside to this gambit, re: a possible post season run. Further, he finally needed to settle things going forward re: cap/FO factors in 2013.
Bottem line, I'm not down on Rex.
