Decision to start Freeman latest in series of QB missteps around NFL
Throw in the on-again, off-again presence of veteran backup David Garrard, and the specifics of Sanchez's Week 3 preseason shoulder injury, and New York has certainly taken a curious and circuitous route to its current quarterback situation. Putting Sanchez on the short-term IR list, only to then see him submit to season-ending surgery a few weeks later, served as the perfect capper to the Jets' series of miscalculations. New York spent it's one valuable eight-week IR designation on a player who likely played his last snap as a Jet in the fourth quarter of a meaningless preseason game. The Jets are winning, but it may be in spite of themselves.
