And I agree on Sanchez, I believe Rex when he said Sanchez gave them the best chance to win. If there was a better option we would have seen him sooner. McElroy in the Arz game was a desperation shot at staying alive. McElroy against SD was a the season's over lets take the heat off Sanchez move.
Meaningless as far as the playoffs, yes. but not as far as keeping his job.
he had the opportunity to start and give min to players thatwere going to be on his roster. a chance to see them in a starting role. But he thought the games were important enough to trot out his best players.
It appears we just have a different perception on his actions. no biggie.
