It’s time to take a final look back at Sunday’s win over the Redskins in BGA Extra – now with limited access to coaches film! After the jump, I respond to your questions from the comments in the original BGA post, which you can access here if you missed it. revisfan: No way was Smith supposed to be covering Armstrong down the field. That was his blown assignment on the Fred Davis catch I think. That seems unlikely, because until Davis motioned to the edge of the line, Cromartie was lined up opposite him. That suggests that either he was in man coverage on him or they were in quarters-style zone coverage. Cromartie shifted over so he was opposite Armstrong, but it would be up to Leonhard to tell him whether he was in man coverage on a different guy or still responsible for the outside of the field. As nobody else shifted, this means nobody else’s responsibility changed. Smith can’t have had man to man responsibilities for Davis, because he lined up 15-20 yards away from him. re...

New York Jets: Sanchez Apologist Time

I had originally thought that the two biggest defenders and apologists for Mark Sanchez out there were myself and Rob Celletti, with Trent Dilfer not too far behind. However, I have been intrigued by a new Twitter account @SanchezDEFENDER, which is dedicated specifically to defending the “most unfairly criticized quarterback in the NFL.” Check out a few of these tidbits - ...

Sanchez: Offense can't keep losing focus

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Mark Sanchez isn't about to give back his paycheck, docking himself for the Jets' offensive struggles early in the second half of Sunday's win over the Redskins.

Sanchez stepping up for Jets in crunch time again

APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos. By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. AP Sports Writer In a season of boos and criticisms, Mark Sanchez has been exactly what the New York Jets have needed in the fourth quarter of the last two games. There are still struggles and frustrating moments, but Sanchez again is playing his best with the game - and the season - on the line. He has 10 fourth-quarter...

The Mark Sanchez Meter: Week 13

You couldn't swing a dead cat this summer without hitting someone telling you that it was imperative that Mark Sanchez showed marked improvement as a quarterback this season. Because of that we thought we'd check in weekly to see how the Sanchize is progressing toward that goal. See how the last line of of that introduction references Mark Sanchez progressing? It might...

Pennington on Sanchez: ‘He Understands How to Win’

Sanchez has been through a lot in his three years with the Jets, no one will argue that.  But what might be understated is just how battle-tested and ready the Brian Costello spoke with Chad Pennington about Mark Sanchez, looking for his impressions of whether or not Mark is the genuine article. For all of his stumbles on the field, Sanchez has shown remarkable maturity in the...

Jets lack identity on Offense and Defense

Who are the New York Jets? The 2011 season has been quite different from the previous two Rex Ryan years in regards to the identity of the New York Jets. In 2009 and 2010, the Jets were defined by the “Ground and Pound” philosophy, going to two straight AFC Championships behind a power running game and suffocating defense. Yet now-a-days, the Jets are like a ship without...

The Second Coming Of Breesus Christ?

Dan Shipper is a lifelong Jets fan, current sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania and web entrepreneur. You can find him on Twitter here. I’m going to step up and admit it: I have a love hate relationship with Mark Sanchez. Every Sunday I’m just as likely to rant about how much he sucks as I am to rave about how clutch he is in the fourth quarter. That’s because, as...

New York Jets Need to Play All 4 Quarters

It’s hard to believe that less than a month ago, the New York Jets lost two games within four days…Sunday night against the New England Patriots and then Thursday night against the Denver Broncos. Each loss taught us different things and horrified us for different reasons. For the New England game, the coaching staff was unprepared, the offense could not score to save their...

Week 14 Should Bring an Easy Victory for the New York Jets

Looking at the forthcoming game from a statistical point of view, the New York Jets should win their Week 14 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs pretty easily. On all fronts, the Jets are a stronger team. Kansas City is having all kinds of problems—the biggest would be their quarterback situation. Their back-up, Tyler Palko, is not strong enough to face the Jets defense. Although...

Fantasy Football Preview Week 14: Chiefs vs. Jets

Kansas City @ New York Jets   The Chiefs come off an unlikely win on the road in Chicago; a win they probably wouldn’t have gotten if the Bears weren’t missing their entire offensive talent base due to injury.  Tyler Palko didn’t really look any better than he had the previous two weeks, but he didn’t make the same amount of critical errors that submarined his team’s...
