We continue with a Mark Sanchez Monday here at the Jet Press. Specificially, we are going to take a look at each of Mark Sanchez’s dropbacks from Saturday night and breakdown what happened, in order:

  • First and 15 from the Jets 26.  Mark comes under center, two wide receivers left, one to the right.  Mark takes the snap and throws a quick wide receiver screen to the man in the slot, Jordan White.  He makes the catch around his waist and takes it forward for 3-4 yards.  Good throw, well designed, safe play to get some penalty yards back.
  • Second and 12 from the Jets 29.  Sanchez is in the gun, three receivers bunched to the right, one to the left.  Sanchez takes the snap, a three step drop, and hits Jeff Cumberland over the middle for 10 yards.  Good play to set up third and short.
  • Third and 3 from the Jets 14.  Two receivers left, one right, Shonn Greene is beside Sanchez in the shotgun.  Sanchez takes the snap, and Jason Pierre-Paul pushes Wayne Hunter out of the way, and sacks Sanchez in under two seconds.  Mark never had a chance.
  • First and 10 from the Jets 20.  One receiver left, one receiver right, one back behind Sanchez.  Mark takes the snap, takes a 5 step drop, and hits Patrick Turner on the right on a comeback route for approximately 12 yards.  A good throw to one of the few wide receivers that has been available to Mark Sanchez for the entire camp so far.
