New York Jets: Will Mark Sanchez Make a Big Leap in 2011?
Mark Sanchez is one of the strangest quarterbacks in the NFL, mainly because he doesn't put up great numbers at all, but when it comes to the playoffs Sanchez finds a way to play his best and has willed his way to four playoff victories for the Jets.
Sanchez was supposed to make a big jump this off-season and become a better decision maker. Instead, as the interception in the third quarter of the Dallas game shows, he still doesn't look off coverage enough, and tries to force throws into holes that are near impossible.
A quarterback like Peyton Manning wouldn't force throws in like that, and that is what makes him so good. Sanchez needs to learn that throwing the ball away is a much better answer than throwing it to the other team.
Of course a single game is never a fair sample size, but Sanchez is still lacking in confidence from fans and I would even bet some of his teammates.
I think the old game plan, of looking to the tight ends a lot, worked a lot better for the Jets than the new down-field aerial attack. It was the completions to the tight ends that were some of the best throws Sanchez made.
Sanchez may never make a big leap, and it seems more likely he may slowly improve individual assets of the team as opposed to the whole product in a single big change.
