(2) After seeing McElroy (who I had high hopes for), he doesn't have the pocket presence I thought I'd see. I guess Rex already knew this.
(3) Even with either of the above options in there we didn't have any skill players to get anywhere, so....
(4) With "The Contract" and Sanchez not going anywhere, Rex had no choice but to hope
that Sanchez could turn it around at least while we were still alive. Once hope died he gave McElroy some starts to see what it is.
With 20/20 hindsight I've no problems with the way Rex handled the QB spot this season. He just had nothing to work with. Further, Rex is one of the the winingist HC in franchise hx. Rex haters, please step off
In summary...sad as it is....
Mark gave us the best chance to win.
