Re: Doesn't seem to get much attention does it?

What gets the most attention is Sanchez's 74.3 career QB rating. To put that in perspective, Sanchez's 2016 80.7 rating was good for 47th best in the league last year.

I believe Quarterbacks in the NFL are separated into 3 bins. First are the top flight QB's. This includes QB's such as Brady, Manning (at his prime), Rodgers, Cam, Luck, etc. These are the quarterbacks every team wants because they can win games on their own.

Second tier QB's include Osweiler, Matthew Stafford, Phillip Rivers, etc. These guys are serviceable, but cannot deliver victory consistently through their own talents. Instead they need strong supporting casts. Sometimes top QB's fall into this category once they are past their prime.

The final category of QB's are the stiffs. Fan bases of these QB's usually clamor for the backup by the completion of the first regular season game. Furthermore, teams in this situation are typically the teams that spend high draft picks on a QB.

Being generous, Sanchez might have been a second tier QB earlier in his career, but those days are past. Elway is rolling the dice that the defense will be able to carry the Broncos through below average QB play next season.
