    JJT: It can only get better for Dallas QB Mark Sanchez after Philadelphia game

    It can only get better for Dallas QB Mark Sanchez after Philadelphia game

    FRISCO, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have no desire to see Mark Sanchez play this season, because it means disaster has occurred.

    Dak Prescott starts, Tony Romo is the backup and if Sanchez is in the game then it probably means those two players have been injured.

    Sanchez did nothing in Sunday’s 27-13 loss to Philadelphia to make the Cowboys feel confident about his ability to perform, if they have to use him.

    He entered the game late in the first quarter, and he finished the game 9 of 17 for 85 yards with two interceptions and a passer rating of 27.2. He was 1-of-5 for nine yards and two interceptions in the first half.

    Prescott has thrown four interceptions in 459 attempts this season.

    On Sanchez' first interception, linebacker Jordan Hicks tipped a screen pass and caught the deflection. On the second interception, Sanchez threw the ball late and behind tight end Gavin Escobar and Hicks intercepted it.

    Sanchez, a former first-round pick, who has played in two conference championship games, looked skittish. He double-clutched throws, held the ball too long at times and looked, in general, out of sorts.

    Perhaps, that’s why he chose not talk about his performance after the game.

    "Early on with the two interceptions it was a rough start for him," coach Jason Garrett said. "We tried to throw the screen and the linebacker made a good play knocking it down and intercepting it.

    "Then that same linebacker did a good job cutting under the drag Escobar ran and intercepting it."

    Now, he was 8 of 12 for 74 yards in the second half and led the Cowboys to field goal on their first possession of the third quarter.

    "Often times, it takes a little bit for a quarterback to get comfortable playing,” Garrett said. "I do think he came back out in the second half and did a really good job."

    In the third quarter, Sanchez also made his best throw of the game during that series, a beautiful 33-yard toss between two defenders that hit Cole Beasley in stride. He did overlook Escobar, who did not have a defender within five yards of him in the middle of the field, to throw into double coverage, but it worked out.

    "As the game wore on, he played better and you could tell he was getting more comfortable," Garrett said. "It was good experience for him and he’ll be better for it."

    He's just terrible, he made me cringe every time he dropped back. They should cut him, might as well go with Dunbar at QB...

    To even mention the words "Mark Sanchez" and "improved as the game went on" in the same interview is fucking retarded of Garrett.

    Garrett is an ex-player. He will rarely, if ever, throw his players under the bus. That being said, I see no reason to waste a roster spot on this guy. If Romo and Dak both go down, we're sunk so don't even bother.

    We can always line McFadden up under center, and run the wild hog.

    I'd rather see Beasley under center.
