Despite Lack of Success, Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan Still Confident

Mark Sanchez had a similar answer when talking about whether the mistakes have been physical or mental:

A lot of it is the physical part of it. The throw to PT (Patrick Turner) is a great example. Can I make that throw 100 out of 100 times? Absolutely. Was it a bad read? No way. (It was) a great read, I just put it out in front of him. It has to happen in a game. Everybody is telling you, hey you’re nine-for-11, that’s great. You can’t miss. You can’t miss that one. It just shows you how fragile it is, but Rex made a really good point today in our meeting. He really tried to drive home the point of when things do go bad, when you throw a ball behind a guy, you miss a pass, you drop a ball, it’s not time to make anything up. There is no new throwing motion that I’m going to try to find. There’s not a new footwork that I’m going to make up right there. (We need to) snap right back into what we know. That’s the great coaching we have. That’s our fundamentals. That’s really how we can stay sharp. You try and eliminate mistakes, but they’re going to happen. They’re bound to happen. It’s a long game and there are a lot of plays, but as soon as they happen we have to come back and really get back to our fundamentals. That’s where the challenge is.

Hopefully, they can get the fundamentals back down, and do it soon. They have time, but they don’t have a lot of time to get it together, as they likely won’t play much, if at all, in the final preseason game. Next week is it.

At least Rex is not overconfident about the right tackle position. Does he know if Wayne Hunter will start week one?

I’m not going to paint myself in a corner because things happen.
