Mark Sanchez had a productive OTA session.

There was no doubt

Sanchez was the best quarterback on the Jets’ practice field, and there was also no doubt his strong, sharp throws would be held against backup Tebow’s pair of interceptions in seven-on-seven drills by every media outlet in attendance.

What does this mean? It is not terribly important. Kellen Clemens lit up OTA's in the past. It does signify, however, that Sanchez is working hard and grasping the new system well, which is certainly a good thing.

Dustin Keller had a bit of a revealing comment.

"Last year, we were more than anything a really game-plan specific team," tight end Dustin Keller said. "You may see a heavy running game one game and throwing the ball 70 times the next. But I think we know who we are now: We’re a power football team that can throw the ball, and we’re just trying to sharpen that up now."

That is what the Jets were at their best in 2010. Now I'm not sure they have the personnel to pound the ball as well as they did then, particularly with Wayne Hunter at right tackle. I think a run heavy offense with a simplified passing attack is what the doctor ordered, however. What we saw at the end of last year was a quarterback who seemed really messed up. The team needs to go back to square one with him, simplify things, and build off successes. Once he has success doing something, the Jets can give Mark more. We know he has the natural ability to do good things.
