What was the issue with the catch/non-catch with the Buffalo WR over the middle? I only saw it for a brief second but he caught a pass coming across, took four or five steps, got tackled and the ball popped out when he was down. Apparently it was ruled incomplete? Anyone else see that?
Gotta' give credit where it's due...those are some of the better excuses you've come up with for Sanchez being an atrocious quarterback. Now, I think I saw some threads on the front page that aren't about Sanchez yet...you're slacking.
Gotcha...and you bring up a fair point with Fitz not being criticized and I'll offer my theory on why that's the case. Fitz does enough good on the field that he builds up some equity and the fans cut him some slack. No different than Marshall. How many huge drops has he had this season, that go go along with the lateral in the Philly game? He's made some killer mistakes but fans don't go crazy because you take the good with the bad. In the case of Geno, there bad outweighs the good by so much that every single mistake is under the microscope and intolerable. Fair or not, that's just life.
This is something I hear a lot from Geno and Sanchez fans. You state a fact about their performance and because they were terrible QB's, they call it "bashing". Referencing the fact that a guy got a playoff win despite completing 50% of his passes and throwing 1 TD and 1 INT isn't bashing, it's a fact. Saying that Geno threw three pick-6's last year and missed multiple open receivers deep down the field in games that were lost by a score or less is not bashing. It's an actual thing that really happened on the field of play in 2014.
I've always viewed wins as team stats. This Sunday it's Jets vs. Giants, not Eli vs. Fitz. I'm not shocked when an average QB on a bad team has a terrible record. I was under the impression you were saying a QBR (which is an individual stat, not a team stat) was meaningless so I asked if you'd prefer a QB with a QBR of 30 or a QB with a QBR of 130.
He was definitely not horrendous in that game, but if he'd have managed an early score or two to keep it close, people might care more. Putting up some late points in a blowout doesn't get much attention from any fan base IMO.
Number of times NY Jets QB's posted 90+ QBR from 2012-2014- 9 Fitzpatrick 90+ QBR this season- 7 Never thought I'd see Jets fans so upset to get competent QB play. Had no idea people enjoyed watching Pick 6's so much.
