What is there to explain smash, the bottom corner is playing off and darts back at snap, the read is McNight for a fairly easy first down. I've already said I would've had someone run a clearing route, I really don't understand what is so complicated. What I and anyone who isn't bonkers can plainly see is an easy first down if the QB makes a fairly simple read. He threw it to the worst possible choice. Your guy blew it.. The thread dbatesman linked has more explanation (including Holmes and Plax running lazy routes, you'll like that)
I mean seriously Smash, you really think Schotty doesn't run the same types of plays as everyone else. It's absurd. You must think you're smarter then Jeff Fischer (who scooped him up to be OC). You must also realize that the vast majority of people, including his own teammates know that Sanchez is the problem. But here's smash, arrogant as hell, claiming that only he and a band of looney's know better then the entire football establishment.
Schott sucks and a rehire isn't indicative of anything, but hitches are a staple in pretty much any offense and Walsh used to run that play all the time.
Chan I think the coverage was the same on both sides of the field and Plax was probably the first read that progressed from Sanchez left to his right. And RJF is definetely correct that a re hire means nothing in shottys case. Also when Walsh ran that play I would bet my life he cleared out some areas and did not have every receiver running the same basic route 2 -3 yards short of the first down marker. You can look at a play and say he should have went there but its not that simple and I think you know that. Especially when you have 5 guys doing the same thing.
How many times our WR's ran short of the marker during Shottys time here was startling and how it was not corrected was even more ridiculous. When simple problems do not get fixed I look at the coach. When you refer to Shottys plays being similar to others around the league to some extent you would probably be correct but that does not make him a good coach nor does it mean he mixes up the plays well.
I do not think he handled Sanchez well at all I think he babied him and thats not what Sanchez needed. I think we will see a difference with Sparano and I think we have already seen some difference in the way the Jets drafted this year since we actully went and got the big tall fast WR we should have drafted when we first drafted Sanchez. If Im wrong about all this and Sanchez does not start to cut down on the mistakes and up his completion percentage Ill be the first one to back down on the arguement but I think the kid deserves a chance.
