Don't underestimate the importance of the completed pass.
A lot of boos have rained down at Jets home games over the last three years after Sanchez has struggled completing simple passes.
He's improved his completion percentage every year he's been in the NFL, but last season's career high of 56.7 percent won't cut it.
Hopefully, for Sanchez's sake, new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano will incorporate a handful of easy throws at the beginning of games for the former USC Trojan to allow him to build confidence.
Also, Sparano simply must call less pass plays for the Jets. It wouldn't be a knock on Sanchez, but a way to make him more efficient as a signal-caller.
His 543 attempts in 2011 ranked him ninth in the NFL.
That's too high.
Sanchez doesn't have a multitude of weapons outside, but the team's pass-catching unit is far from inadequate.
Higher completion percentage equals more yards, more first downs and probably more points.
The first step to becoming a definitive franchise quarterback.
