I've seen plenty of negativity as of late, but this has been an excellent preseason thus far, especially for our defense and Mark Sanchez himself.

We still have another preseason game before we take on the Cowboys, but our preseason has been an overall success thus far, considering the fact that our worst injury suffered was an injury to a backup offensive lineman.

It's been difficult trying to comprehend all this negativity surrounding our 3rd year quarterback. In my eyes, Sanchez has taken plenty of unnecessary criticism around here, during a time where he's shown nothing but progress and improvement. We've all wanted to see Sanchez improve amongst his accuracy and completion %, so far he's done just that. As of right now, his completion % is up to 60.5. He's tied for 4th with 3 TD's thrown. Bradford, McCoy and Rivers rank # 1 with 4 TD's thrown. He's only 1 of 6 QB's who's yet to throw a preseason INT. Same can be said about both Josh Freeman and Aaron Rodgers who have yet to throw an INT. He's tied for 7th, with QB's such as Eli Manning, Matt Schaub and Aaron Rodgers with 5 completions of +20 yards. Orton leads all QB's with 8 plays of 20+ yards. Most importantly, his QB rating of 102.9 ranks 4th amongst all other QB's behind only Rodgers, Rivers and Orton. Preseason or not, what more can our fan base possibly ask for in regards to a quarterback who's only heading into his 3rd year?

I can't say enough about our defense. Our starters and backups have all played tough football. For the most part, we've kept it pretty simple/vanilla on the defensive side of the ball, but we've already seen what this defense is made of during our first two years under Rex Ryan, this preseason hasn't been any different. When judging our preseason defense, the term 'stingy' immediately comes to mind.

- We've only allowed 10 points per game, which is good enough for first in the league. Just to give a reminder on how solid we've performed, our defense has only allowd 30 points this preseason, while teams such as the Cards, Raiders and Jags have all allowed over 80 points.

- We rank #2, only behind the Texans in yards allowed per game (250.3). The Texans have only allowed 248.7 yards per game.

- We haven't allowed large amount's of yardage either, considering the fact that our defense ranks 2nd, only behind the Texans, in average yards per play (4.2).

- We're Tied for 6th overall in 1st downs allowed per game (15.7).

- We're also getting off the field with success, which has given our offense a chance to work on plays. We rank 4th on defense, with only 26:35 mins per game on the defensive side of the football. We rank 2nd in 3rd down %, with a conversion percentage allowed of only 21%.

- Our run defense has been outstanding. Our defensive front hasn't been easy to move either. We rank 2nd in yards allowed per carry, only allowing 2.9 yards per rush attempt.

- Other than a couple of screen plays that broke for big yardage, our pass defense has been impressive to say the least. Ranking 3rd in average yards per play against the pass, only allowing 5.6 yards per drop back. QB's have only completed 47.1 % of their attempts, good enough to rank #1. We've only allowed 1 TD through the air, good enough to rank #1. We've picked off 6 passes, ranking #1 in INT's. We rank 17th in sacks, with only 6 on the preseason, but sacks have always been overrated; it's all about the pressure, and we've seen plenty of it after only 3 games. All in all, our pass defense ranks #1 by a large margin, with a defensive rating of 44.0. The Rams, Texans, Steelers and Saints round out the top 5, all with ratings over 60.

We're 2-1, Turner has been our worst injury, Sanchez has a qb rating that ranks 4th overall, our defense ranks #1 overall, We all seen what Plaxico Burress can do on the football field, Joe McKnight has an average yards per carry of 4.5, Santonio Holmes has performed very well with 7 catches, 73 yards and two TD's. Jeff Cumberland ranks 2nd amongst NFL TE's in both catches and yards with 8 catches for 120 yards. That's an average of 15 yards per catch, which is a good sign. Speaking of TE's, Dustin Keller has also performed with 6 catches, 84 yards and 4 first downs. Mike DeVito ranks 5th amongst DT/DE's in combined tackles with 9. The quarterback of our defense in Jim Leonhard looks to be 100% healthy and ready for take off. He's tied for the league lead in INT's with 2. Cromartie has only returned one kickoff return, but it went for 68 yards. Jeremy Kerley looks to become our next Morton/Leon/Brad type of kick returner. He's impressed with an average of 31.8 yards per return. He's also been sharp on punt returns, with an average of 8.9 yards per return with a long of 17. Of course it would have been nice to see more of Wilkerson, but can anyone deny the fact that K.Ellis has held his own? Even our backup in Greg McElroy has been a strong success when compared to our backup of recent memory (Kellen Clemens).

We do have another preseason game before heading into the regular season, but after 3 preseason games, I believe it's safe to say that we've had a very successful offseason and preseason thus far.

I tend to agree but I guess some Jet fans aren't happy unless they're miserable.

All in all, I think the preseason has gone pretty well and the fact that we're relatively healthy going into Week 1 is always good.

You would think they got blown out last night with the way people talk. Uh... how about the defense only giving up 3 points? No mention of that from those people for some reason.

Also, Sanchez is fine. He improved considerably last year, I don't know why people are down on him. You figure they would wait for a year of regression or at the very least limited improvement. WTF

BUT THEY OUT-YARDAGED US BY SO MANY!!! RABBLE

Reality check: The Giants moved the ball up and down the field passing and rushing. Points? This is preseason. We're looking at performance, not points. Harris and Smith played very well, Pito showed some signs of life, Scott was hot and cold and Revis was Revis. But our Dline didn't get the job done versus the gints rushing attack, Cro got victimized and Where the hell was Wilkerson?

Sanchez went 8 of 16 for 64 yards and missed badly all over the place. And he held the ball way too long.

Greene looks like a beast--good news. Oline has some 'splaining to do...bad news. Give'em a pass since they played an excellent Gints D-line.

I hope the Jets aren't as satisfied as the board homers here. There's work to do. We haven't been impressive yet this season. To do that we'll have to look solid consitently. there is nothing consistent about this team so far. Of course, they haven't had much work, to be fair.

Either way, no tooting our own horn. It comes off as rah-rah homerism. We'll see what we got in a few weeks. In the meantime, there's plenty to be optimistic about, and concerned with. That's why I love football. You have to earn your victories. And you have to prove your worth. so far, nothing's been proven.

More about Mark Sanchez.

The rookie year as a QB is a slog, it's just tough. You make it through, learn whatever you can learn and then build on it.

The sophomore year he went from a -8 TD/INT ratio to a +4 TD/INT ratio. That's a +12 swing! At that rate he would be +16 TD/INT this year. Now, that's not likely, but nor is it necessary. If he can even improve half as much, he would be at a +10 TD/INT ratio which a very competent place to be for year 3.

He also improved 1% in completion percentage, even, from year 1 to 2. That's not quite as high as I would like, but not the end of the world either. If he can duplicate that improvement (and he should be able to) it would put him at 55.8% completion which is competent for a 3rd year franchise guy as well.

Yet people act like he is going backwards.
