The grades are in from yesterday’s 27-10 loss to the Steelers. Needless to say, these aren’t going to help the GPA very much. Let’s get right to it, starting with the offensive grades:

QUARTERBACK:C+

Mark Sanchez had quite the off game, going 10-27 throwing for 138 yards and 1 TD. He didn’t turn the ball over, which is always a good sign. He led a great first drive, and certainly had his share of drops from his receivers. But, he clearly was not as accurate as he was in week 1, missing guys that he hit last week. Overthrows, throws that were wide, and things of that nature. He wasn’t on the same page with his wide receivers, and yes that is partly on them, but it’s also on the quarterback.

Tim Tebow was only in the game for 3 snaps at quarterback, so he doesn’t really affect the grade.

RUNNING BACKS:C

It was another mediocre day for the Ground and Pound. Shonn Greene was running well early, but after a head injury, he came back into the game and wasn’t the same, finishing the game with 11 carries for 23 yards. Bilal Powell showed some potential with 9 carries for 33 yards. But all in all it was pretty lackluster for the running game. The average per carry only exceeded 4 yards per carry thanks to a 22 yarder by Tebow, and a 12 yarder by McKnight.
