Jets Offense Sanchez's Performance
Posted 22 October 2012 - 12:17 PM
Sanchez was 2 of 5 for passing. Hill Dropped a long pass, The Pats held Keller on what would have been a TD (Penalty was called) and Shillins had a drop too.
2nd Drive: 3 and out 7-7
Sanchez is sacked and completes a pass shorrt of the 1st Down.
3rd Drive: 1 Play Safety
Sanchez kicks fumble out of the endzone. Damn Wilfort blew this play up.
4th Drive: 7 Plays 47 Yards, INT
Sanchez is 2 of 5 and badly underthrows Hill, could have been a TD, this is all on Sanchez. I do think Hill has to learn to adjust his route though. But if Sanchez doesnt pump fake to the left, he has a easier throw to a wide open Hill. Sanchez had a long completion to Kerley on this drice and a nice pass to Keller to convert a 3rd Down.
5th Drive: 12 Plays, 60 Yards, FG
Jets get the ball with 3:43 left and have a nice drive for a FG. But I wish we had better time management here, I know you dont want to give Bradt the ball back, but I think we were very lazy with a chance here to get a TD.
Sanchez is 6 for 9 on this drive.
End of half: NE16-Jets 10
6th Drive: 11 Plays, 66 Yards, FG
Sanchez is 3 of 4 on this drive and another quick slant on 3rd and 2. Pats knew it was coming and Schillins didnt catch the damn ball. This was mind boggling. 3rd and 2 from the 3, and we get an incomplete and kick the FG.....Where was the run game? Or even Tebow here? We left points on the field here, and this one is not on Sanchez.
7th Drive: 3 and out.
BS Holding call on a 15 yard scramble. Greene drops a throw in the flat, may have been a loss if he catches it.
8th Drive: 14 Plays, 91 Yards. TD
Sanchez is 9 of 10. Good drive after starting with a false start penalty. This was where Greene got KO'd. NE 23-Jets 20
9th Drive: 6 Plays, 40 yards, Game Tying FG.
Sanchez is 1 of 2. Drive ends on a drop by Hill. No at all on Sanchez. If Hill makes this catch, we at least have 1st and goal. Hill would have been 1 on 1 with the Safety.
10th Drive: 4 Plays -7 yards.
Sanchez is sacked here after no gainer from Tebow and a 2 yard run by McKnight. We kicked the FG to take a 3 point lead. Why you bring Tebow here, but not on 3rd and 2 from the 3 yard line?
We take the lead here with a FG.
11th Drive (OT): 5 Plays, 26 yards.
Sanchez obviously fumbles on 2nd down. I am going to check this one, but on 3rd and 5, we threw a deep route here to Hill, he was held at the LOS, and that was a 5 yard penalty. But I think it was a great call to get away from the slants here. But a great hold if you are a Pats fan.
Overall, I give Sanchez a B- on his performance. I think it was one of his better games. The INT is completely on him. The fumble in OT is on him to an extent, he is trying to make a play there and lost the ball.

Interesting point. But lets look at something here.
For the first 3 years of Sanchezs carear, his offensive coordinator was Brian Shottenhiemer. A OC that has a very complex offense, and the more I saw it, I was not impressed from QB view of it. I recall when Sanchez was taking us to the playoffs and Rex had taken over the offensive playcalling, Rex had a set of plays that he had that would limit Sanchezs mistakes as a young QB going into the playoffs. I really think that when we had a recievers like Edwards, Cothcery (it think Coles too) we were a run first team. We also were lucky to have one of the better offensive lines too. But with such a complex offense, Sanchez really struggled.
Now that OC is gone, and we have a new OC. I believe it takes time for these two to sinc up. Sporanno needs to develop on some of Sanchezs strenghts, but now we are not a run team, and we dont have quality recievers and we are asking a guy to learn a new system and do it without any continuity (minus Keller). During the game against the Pats, I saw Sanchez mis 2 wide open WRs on critical 2nd and 3rd down plays. He almost never looked to his left (where McKnight was standing alon) or to the right (where #87 was running also wide open). We have got to give this guy at least 2 season IMO, because he was drafted for the long haul. In this past game against the Pats, The INT was all on Sanchez. He recognized the coverage and then through the ball late. (I also think with some Chemistry with a WR, this may not happen, Sanchez may not realize the speed of Hill, and Hill doesnt recognize he needs to be able to make a play in that senareo based on the defense). If his sits down there instead of continueing, Sanchez probably has a completion. (If Hill doesnt deop the ball). I still think there is hope for Sanchez.
