Mark Sanchez looked pretty good. Mark Sanchez seemed to have control of the offense, delivering on time passes accurately within the pocket. Some big drops by receivers left Sanchez out to dry on what could have been big yardage against a sharp Carolina defense. Sanchez showed the skills he honed in the off season, displaying improved arm strength and accuracy.
His footwork seemed to look improved too, quickly planting his feet and setting his body into his throws helping to keep passes from sailing over the intended receiver. If not for the drops, Sanchez’s stat line could look vastly different as Stephan Hill dropped a routine slant route with open field in front of him. Overall tonight’s performance by Mark Sanchez was a positive sign for both himself and the New York Jets.
