With zero touchdowns for his group during the preseason, there were a lot of worries going into the game yesterday against the Bills. Specifically, many felt that the quarterback controversy would come to a head after the game if the offense was lackluster.

Guess what? It wasn’t. The Jets put up 48 points yesterday, silencing the critics, at least for the time being. Despite the doubters, you know who knew that they would play well? Mark Sanchez:

I knew we were just capable of scoring points. I knew we had a great plan coming into the game. I had a good feeling about it all week, and I knew our shortcomings in the preseason were shortcomings in the red zone. There were penalties. (I) hit Stephen (Hill) on almost the exact same route I threw to PT (Patrick Turner) for a pick six against the Giants. You throw it right, you throw it accurately and you score. I knew we were really close in the preseason. Did I know it was 48 points? No, I didn’t necessarily know that, but that’s just a great day of execution. We still left some plays out there so it wasn’t perfect. (We’ve) still got a lot of work to do but I’m really proud of our effort and the way we moved the ball today.
