Take off the homer glasses for a second and see the light.
Dude, I don't like Mark Sanchez as a QB and never did, not even at USC. That being said, it's idiotic to believe that he can't be traded. The problem with most fans is that they can only look at this from their perspective. I never once mentioned any of those teams signing Sanchez to be the starter. None of those teams have a true #1 QB, so the opportunity is there for the Kid to prove everyone wrong.
This is all up to Sanchez. He will ultimately be betting on himself. 8mil as a signing bonus for a QB is penuts. What did the Seahawks give to Matt Flynn as a signing bonus. How many playoff games has he played in. The Fans and the media told the world Flynn was signed to be the starting QB. The Seahawks management made no such promise.
Atleast not publicly.
