to take this analogy further, sure if the patient in question is a 97 year old man with lots of underlying medical issues who is going to die anyway, leave the big tumor in and let the man live the rest of his life in peace.
But if the patient is a previously healthy 45 year old man, he would ACCEPT the high risk of the surgery for a chance to be CURED of the disease.
so which way do the jets want to go? do they want to be that 97 year old guy and sputter along just to avoid the pain of rebuilding or be that 45 year old who is going to accept the short term pain for future gains?
there's no question which way an NFL team should go here - yes, do what the colts did! absolutely. cut away the cancers - starting with sanchez.
How many of us can honestly say that watching Sanchez for another year is acceptable? Personally, I can't stomach the idea of him throwing all those mindless picks (or losing fumbles) for another season. I've broken enough furniture.
Sanchez has had 52 turnovers the last two years. I think eating his contract is worth every penny.
