It's funny you're using all the same excuses that you refused to acknowledge about Henne - who could have accomplished the same if not more than Sanchez as he's now proving with Jacksonville, making more due with less.

8-8 including crapping the bed while still in contention finishing the season out 4-5 with a +5 scoring differential over that time span
Possibly finishing 6-10 with 3 or 4 humiliating home blow-outs and possibly going 10-15 over the last 25 games.
Throw in several imploding clubhouses he was clueless about, guido coaches tripping gunners, sexual harrassment of foreign reporters, embarrassing foot sucking and wife pimping alternative lifestyle site postings, bird-flashing and F-bombing opposing fans, - not to mention a refusal to pull one of the worst QBs in the league, etc, and Ozzie Newsome knew what he was doing by risking losing a petulant but very good DC by going outside to hire a position coach instead of promoting him. The proof is in the pudding: Ozzie continues to go to the playoffs every year and now there are rumors circulating that the days are numbered of the bean counter who hired Rex. Like I said all along, there's an eerie similarity to Kotite's Philly - NYJ Head Coaching career trajectory. Both are moving towards crash and burn.
But if it helps you sleep at night deluding yourself that Rex isn't in over his head and is as qualified to be a HC as Lindsay Lohan is to star in the a biographic about the life of Aretha Franklin, knock yourself out!
