Whats up John? Yes, I honestly believe the Head Coach decides who starts at QB. I also know that the vast majority of the information conveyed to the fans & press about the progess of the players and their skills is communicated by the Head Coach.
At this point there are only a few ways to have a legit open QB competition on this team:
A. Announce that Sanchez will not be considered for starter
B. Cut Sanchez and eat the Cap money
C. Fire Ryan
D. Announce that the owner, GM, or QB Coach will determine the QB depth chart
See any of these things happening?
