Even though the Jets are learning a new offense, one thing they are not doing is slowing the pace down. Coach Ryan has praised the Jets offense for the pace of practice so far, and new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano says that is all part of the master plan. It slows down the actual games, according to Sparano, and it causes the players to learn the playbook fast.
“When you force them to practice fast, they don’t have a lot of time to digest the information,” Sparano said. “Not a lot of time to think about it at the line of scrimmage. It forces them to know.”
The team is through about 90% of the installs that Sparano is going through, and they have begun to work on repetition on the field.
A theme for both of the quarterbacks this offseason has been accuracy. Tebow, according to Rex Ryan, has a nice touch when throwing deep, but needs to be more accurate overall. Sanchez needs to be more consistent.
“There’s times when I think Sanchez can throw it with anybody in this league,” Ryan said. “And then there’s other times when it’s like, ‘Oh, gosh, Mark missed it.’ ”
