If the defense hadn't accepted that penalty and given us that additional play, the touchdown would have counted. Had he not thrown the ball again, it would have been a turnover on downs. So, while you may think it was dumb, it was actually the best possible outcome after the ball was tipped.

By making a play which you deem stupid, he actually gave us one more shot at a score late in the game.

And, he hasn't been throwing INTs, let alone dumb INTs. He hasn't thrown an interception in the last two games and has only thrown one interception in the last three games... And that came off of an unlucky tipped ball at the line, not a misread or stupid throw.

And, just as important, he only has one fumble this year and it was in the first game.

Again, I'd like you to cite these "dumb" interceptions he has apparently been throwing lately... Because, as someone who watches every second of every game, I haven't seen one in quite some time. I think maybe the last really bad interceptions he's thrown was back in the third week of the season against the Bills, and that only came after we fell behind late and he was forced to take shots down the field into coverage.

Not sure what you're seeing.

I think he is getting Mark Sanchez confused with Weeden.
