Do you remember Sanchez against NE? Indy? Where he actually made throws, where he made played ok? Maybe the Jets were wrong to think he'd improve and not to challenge him more. But to give him the Tebow distraction at the same time they made every other part of their offense worse didn't help much.
The problem with the "he gives them the best chance to win" argument is that they aren't winning. The record stinks, the offense is terrible and the quarterback gives up 3-TO games with regularity. Really, compare Sanchez to Tebow last year. Are his stats better? With Tebow the ball didn't move but at least the team held it long enough to punt. And in the event that Tebow exceeded Sanchez's at times historic awfulness? They aren't a playoff team anyway, at least they'd have higher picks. If not for the stupid extension they gave him for no good reason they'd be starting McElroy. Like a poker player that got called on a bluff and now just throws good chips after bad.
