The offense has not gotten the ball downfield at all this preseason. Neither Mark Sanchez nor Tim Tebow are averaging over 5 yards per pass so far, which in no way will cut it. Tony Sparano speaks of a vertical passing game that is essential. This isn’t it.

We have talked about the offensive line’s role in downfield passing. Well, having guys like Santonio Holmes on the field will play an obvious role in that as well. Can Santonio Holmes and Mark Sanchez begin to connect on passes that are actually downfield, and stretch the field a bit? Doing so will only serve to help the running game get off the blocks.

They have to get their timing down in order to do this. They need reps. The reps are finally here tomorrow night, and they won’t be coming Thursday night against the Eagles.

The Jets had better make good use of those reps, that is all I am saying.
