thats fair to say hill dropped passes some in big spots but im giving a pass to a rookie WR on drops but not a multiple year starter in QB who cant hit a wide open reciever.
But I think you need to look at the entire offense. For how bad the players were a lot of times someone was wide open sanchez just didnt see him (cause he loves to lock on) or just didnt throw the ball accuratly.
Also that insane stat of sanchez 1/3 hits on sanchez resulted in a fumble is just completely dumbfounding. Thats so bad its not even funny (except the butt fumble i can laugh at that one cause come on who didnt laugh at that)
Im glad that you think its fair to say that Hill dropped passes in big spots, and im also glad that you feel like I need to look at the entire offense which I believe im doing when I respond to people who isolate solely on the faults of Mark Sanchez. You said it yourself "for how bad the PLAYERS were", which means that it wasnt only Mark Sanchez. Yes Sanchez over threw a few passes. I can give you an example here. I remember Holmes ran a post route in the Pittsburgh game that was a clear TD and Sanchez overthrew him by about 5 inches, that if im correct would have given the Jets the lead in that game. I remember this clearly. What I dont like is when its simply "Sanchez fault" when I've seen guys misrun routes, not come back to the ball, not get separation, the guards looking like revolving doors for defenders etc.
For all of the alleged faults of Sanchez, I can present a concise defense for why some of these things occured and how there was much more to the play than simply the throw or non-throw from the QB (primarily coaching and scheme).
The offense was terrible, it doesnt have any playmakers, receivers (be it a rookie or not) couldnt get separation and some couldnt catch a cold, the TE position was virtually nonexistent, the oline from left to right all underachieved etc.
To simply mention Sanchez is a cop out, and I mean that in no disrespect to one's comment. I mean it more as in "Sanchez being the sole problem". He's far from being that....quite far.
