Smith isn't some stud, franchise QB but he's a helluva lot better than Sanchez. That's not even debateable.
Chad Pennington could have completed 100% of his passes, he still wouldn't have made it to the Super Bowl.
These stupid stats mean nothing as they are skewed by circumstances:
2010: 11-5, 5 miracle comebacks.
2011: Aging WR and RB, injured TE, lousy OL.
2012: No playmakers, rest of team just as bad.
That's not the list of "excuses". That's the list of "facts". There comes a point where an offense is so depleted of talent that it simply can't function, no mater how good the QB is. Tom Brady doesn't win 8 games with the 2012 Jets. Neither does Joe Montana.
