Why does it matter if it ended up like Favre again, don't you think Sanchez is a bum anyways? And I wouldn't think this would be a 1 year thing, he would be 36 next year as long as he can get his arm back into form he could have another 3+ years left in him. Seems like QBs can play at a high level in their late 30s still, he doesn't take many hits anyway since he understands protection schemes better than any QB in the game and gets rid of the ball so fast.
Good point on the "avoiding hits". Your right, he does do a lot of that but he might be the only QB that avoids getting hit as much as others, yet he's still has a serious neck injury.
It doesn't matter if it ended like Favre? Of course it matters. If you haven't noticed this team is the laughing stock of the league. We trade up, get Sanchez, Rex has already said he's going to back him till the end, then we flip flop and get Peyton and if we lose? The ramifications would be of epic proportions.
What do I want? Give Sanchez another go with Sparano. They will baby him even more, protect him with defense and a running game and give him every avenue to succeed. If he doesn't pan out then it's good-bye and we look back to the draft and get our own guy and start over. I want our own guy, that can be THE GUY for years to come. Not a 36 yo QB on the verge of living the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
Also, even if we win a superbowl with him... to me, it wouldn't seem totally right. It would seem like we bought a superbowl, or used someone else hand-me-down. That's just me .
