I was looking at an old game from 2002, Bucs - Vikings (week 9), and in the game, Brad Johnson, a guy who gets no credit on that team, went 24-31, 313 yds, 5 TDs. He looked like more than just a guy on for the ride during that season. When has Mark ever, ever put up a stat line as dominant as that? Forget Johnny U, Sanchez can't even look like 2002 Brad Johnson
Sanchez had a QBR over 90 in 23 of his 67 career starts. Roughly 34 percent of his snaps.
But my point had nothing to do with Sanchez's stats. And you could probably say the same of a lot of failed quarterbacks, as far as "flashes of brilliance." My point is just that it's an amazing thing about football that somebody can look so good sometimes and still not have what it takes.
