I've read some people's responses on here saying that Sanchez played bad yesterday. I tend to disagree. In a game where the Jets shot themselves in the foot many times with turnovers and unnecessary penalties (some of which the calls were mistakes by the refs, which is another story), there were very few bright spots. However, Sanchez was one of them. Lets look at his stat line:
The touchdown to holmes was a beautiful pass, thrown in tight coverage. The other touchdown pass was a good throw to plax also, where he could only catch it, and with questionable contact by the defender. Neither of the interceptions were his fault. Holmes let one go right through his hands on a beautiful pass near the endzone. Also, Holmes failed to catch an easy pass on a slant play that led to a pick. I believe that by halftime, Sanchez was 11 for 15 with a TD pass, and a pick. Again, the pick was not his fault, and there was another ball dropped I think. So, Sanchez was playing very well, even with all the pressure on him. He had a fumble, which would have never happened if tomlinson would have been where he was supposed to be. The offensive line played horribly. There were plenty of times that Sanchez dropped back, and had no time to throw. Given the horrendous play of the offensive line, I think that Sanchez played great. He was about the only bright spot in the game, so I think that the criticism of him by many following the game, is uncalled for.
