We could call it, "Kyle Orton Syndrome," where a quarterback who is already plagued by the reputation of being only slightly better than most backups becomes incredibly uninteresting once being backed up by Tim Tebow.
Sanchez hasn't played badly this year, and in fact, he has given his team a chance to win more games than not, including last night's matchup against the Houston Texans. Regardless, the Jets are 2-3, and the fascination and interest in Tebow makes Sanchez look extremely dull and unexciting.
The boos raining down on Sanchez in last night's game, which wouldn't have been heard had Tebow not been on the sidelines, were proof of such a lack of excitement.
At the end of the day, football fans want to be entertained, and they want their team to win. If it gets to the point where their team isn't winning and the guy behind center is far less entertaining than the guy backing him up, cries for a change of guard will ensue without fail.
Sanchez might be better than he looks, but at this point, even the slightest mistakes and errors will have us watching a rerun of last year's Tebow saga in Denver. The only question left to be answered is whether Rex Ryan is more patient than John Fox. Time will tell.
