We all know how much Rex loves his CB's. I think that the possibility of having Nnamdi on the other side of Revis would make Rex Ryan's defense becomes near impossible to pass on. Not only does that mean that you can pair both of the teams top 2 receivers on two shutdown corners, but you make an offense more one dimensional than they have been all season long. Asomugha is also a veteran leader on and off the field. With the additions of Wilkerson and Kenrick Ellis; we become A LOT harder to run on as well.
Santonio Holmes was vital to the offense weeks 5-16, he was also key in the playoff game against NE. He is a precise route runner and a BIG time playmaker. Without him, we do not make the playoffs. As good as he is on the field, he is a major risk being one infraction away from being suspended for a year...And to be honest, I think there is a good chance he hasn't matured yet.
In weeks 1-4 TE Dustin Keller had 19 receptions, 254 yards, and 5 touchdowns.Mark Sanchez had 60 completions out of 103 throws; a 58.2% of passes completed. He threw for an average of 177.75 yards per game, and 8 touchdowns. An average of 2 TD's a game. He threw no INT's over those 4 games.
In weeks 5-16 Sanchez completed 218 passes out of 404 attempts, a 53.96% of passes completed. He threw for an average of 215 yards per game, and he threw for 9 TD's. An average of .75 TD's per game. He also threw for 13 INT's averaging 1.08 INT's per game. If you were to compare the two sections of weeks 1-4 and 5-16 respectively; that a 15 to 18.16 completions per game, a 58.2% to a 53.96% pass percentage, a 177.75 to 215 yards per game, a 2TD's per game to a .75 TD per game average, and a 0 INT to a 1.08 INT per game average.
The drop in Mark Sanchez's play can be credited not to the addition of Santonio Holmes, but how we tried a transition to a more balanced offensive attack. Our team should be built around the ground game, and Mark did great with his primary target as Keller.
Sure Holmes saved us 3 different times and he is a playmaker that no current Jet on the team can fill. However, I think that our offense can be just as efficient if we get back to what we are good at; running. Besides, there may be no need to come from behind if we have Revis and Asomugha intercepting every pass thrown. If it comes down to resigning Holmes or Asomugha, I think that Rex and hope that Rex chooses Nnamdi because I don't think Holmes is absolutely vital to our offense that has 3 playmakers (Greene, Edwards, and Keller)
If it is financially possible to choose between the two, we have to go Nnamdi
