Dilfer as a vet? sure but there aren't many QBs in this league we would have been better off w/ in postseason than sanchez. In the reg season? yeah, we could have won 2-3 more games in '09 but not many QBs perform in postseason the way mark has. It took Peyton Manning 6 years before he won a playoff game. It's not eacy to perform in january, some have it and some don't- mark has it.
He may have IT, but he also has the ability to play so badly in the regular season that he doesn't get a chance in January.
While I won't downplay the Dolans contribution to the downfall of the stadium plans, I still think it had more to do with the logistical nightmare the stadium posed to the area.
If you read the Wiki article, there were lots of reasons for opposition to the stadium. There was absolutely no support Upstate for the state borrowing money to help build it, and not much support in the City, either. The Olympic bid may very well have killed it as the Olympic games never are the economic boom they are claimed to be.
