Which makes no sense. Someone should be the starter based on their ability - which was an unknown factor.
It makes perfect sense. I completely agree, someone should be started based on their ability. Geno, Mcelroy, and Simms all have unknown ability. At worst, their have no ability, and play as bad as a QB can possibly play. In that case, they'd be the same as Sanchez. If you can't see the wisdom in starting someone who might not be terrible, as opposed to someone we know is terrible, nobody can explain it to you.
