Alright people, get ready to pile on...the Humble Pie Express.
Here he is, Mr. 0, count 'em 0, second half TD passes in his NFL career. Longest pass occurred week 1. Only game near 300 yds., the Bears debacle. A 12-5 int. to TD ratio. Today, an underwhelming 4.83 yds. per pass play. Last week, a nearly as impressive 5.09.
54.1% completion rate. 0 TDs over 30 yds. But the worst is the W-L record. Winning forgives much, but today's performance? Rusty Hilger never threw 5 picks. Choke Mitchell did not throw 5 picks, even in that abyssmal Eagles playoff game.
This was a performance for the ages. I know, I know. BBBBBuuuuttt Sanchez threw 5. Not with a 17 point lead he didn't.
I cannot place the entire blame on the rook. But I return to my emphasis on responsibility. Today was not a case of the prior week, where Lion receivers caught a case of dropsideus. This was a case of trying to force balls into spaces that were not there. Under throws. Over throws. Throwing behind the receiver. Zipping the ball in where touch was required. Hell, the TDs were on drives started at the 2 and the 29.
3 times out of 4 at the end of the game, the Seahawks started drives (or scored) via a Stafford int.
Once again, Scott Schwartz, I triple dog dare ya to defend the indefensible.
