Huge difference between rooting for someone not to start and rooting for someone to fail in a game. Huge. Rooting for Geno to start is a positive thing. Rooting for Sanchez to be clipboard holder is a VERY GOOD thing. He is a boat anchor to this fanchise
If Mark is the starting QB I hope and pray that he plays well and we win, but that's not the point. The point is that very few of us have any faith that Mark won't fall back to playing poorly. Even when he played better he was never actually good. He may have played better than the last 2 years but that's far from saying he was a good QB. Many of us are tired of him now and just want to move on to a QB that has far more upside. That's not rooting for the team to lose.
Rooting for Sanchez is like someone spitting in your face and then saying, "IT'S OK! I'M SURE YOU WON'T SPIT IN MY FACE NEXT TIME! WOO HOO!".
"BU BU BUT ROOT FOR DA LAUNDRY, DOE!1!!". We are. We're just waiting for Sanchez to stop wiping his ass with that laundry.
I wouldn't boo Sanchez just for him stepping on the field, but the moment he makes one of his signature boneheaded plays (will probably happen Week 1 if he gets the start), then I'll roll my eyes, throw my arms up in the air, and pray that Rex has the common sense to move on sooner rather than later.
I've always been a big fan of Rex, but if he's really so clueless as to tie his career in New York to a totally inept QB...then don't let the door hit you on the way out.
It's not about booing Mark. It's about watching Mark not progress as an NFL QB. He has so many turnovers that it's just an instant reminder every time he throws another INT. He's been pretty much the same guy he's always been so far.
52 turnovers in the last 2 years and then the 4 INT's in team drills is what has people booing. It reminds them of losing in an embarrassing way and they don't want to lose or be embarrassed anymore. It's that simple.Though he scuffled in Monday's practice, Smith still has been the better quarterback over the course of the team's time in Cortland. In team drills thus far, Sanchez has completed 53 of 91 passes with six touchdowns and four interceptions. Smith is 41-72 with five touchdowns and zero picks.
