Even at 6-6 on the season, there’s a feeling of doom surrounding the Washington Redskins. Having lost two quarterbacks to serious injuries, the Redskins are forced to rely on Mark Sanchez under center.
In no way is it a surprise that Sanchez was absolutely brutal in the first half against the last place New York Giants. He completed 5-of-13 passes for 16 net passing yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions en route to seeing his Redskins trail 34-0 at halftime. That included this horrible pick-six.
Needless to say, Twitter wasn’t willing to give Sanchez a pass for his humiliating first-half performance. Here are the best reactions.
Giants 31-0 in 2nd quarter. Mark Sanchez is like a spreading fungus.

All those in favor of changing the term "Pick Six" to "Pick Sanchez", say "aye". Any opposed?
The motion carries. #PickSanchez

I've been one to stay away from the "[Team] messed up by not signing Colin Kaepernick" hot takes. But Washington may have cost themselves a playoff spot by going with Mark Sanchez.

Mark Sanchez is 3-of-10 for 14 yards with two picks. If they’re playing him because he knows the scheme, the scheme sucks.
