You don't bench your starting QB when you're 2-2. You give him the chance to right the ship. If you dip below .500, then you pull the trigger.
You don't bench him for good. But you sure as hell put his ass on the bench for a series or two and make him sit over on the sidelines studying pictures of the defensive coverage he threw into. A message that his play is unacceptable needs to be sent. When a RB fumbles, he sits his ass for a while. When a WR fumbles, same thing. When a kick returner muffs one, off to the bench. When the QB turns the ball over at the worst time possible, and a pick six at that. you sit his ass for a spell.
