According to Klis, the fact that Sanchez hasn’t played much the past three years is likely the reason for Kubiak not anointing him the team’s starting quarterback.
Sanchez has said that he understands that the team would like to see him in action before handing him the job.
“Sure. I understand that,” Sanchez said. “Listen, I’m grateful for the opportunity. If they say compete in checkers or shuffleboard or flipping coins or playing hoops, I don’t care what it is. I feel like I can win. As long as they want that to go on, I’ve just got to keep winning.’’
