Before we hit the game tonight, we are going to talk a little bit about the upcoming season, picking up on a discussion from the Flight 5 Live show last night. The discussion was about Mark Sanchez, and how good he really is.
Bart Scott said this week, that he thinks Sanchez can take the next step here in 2012 and become a top ten quarterback. Mark Sanchez agreed, as he should. He should not down play his own abilities.
The crew on the show, took the view that Mark Sanchez isn’t at that level, and made a good case on that. They talked about his inconsistencies, his happy feet in the pocket, which are all true. They went on to talk about that he might actually make the offensive line play worse at times with the lack of stepping up in the pocket.
All of these are valid points, not diminshing them at all. I want to take a different look this afternoon. We are going to talk about how important the offensive line really is, both to Mark Sanchez, and to the Jets as a whole if they are going to have any success in 2012.
On the next page, we will talk about the line and how it relates to Mark and the passing game.
