The troubles of the New York Jets were well documented last season. Injuries cost the Jets their two best players in Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes, and the offense was absolutely anemic with Mark Sanchez calling the shots. An off-season of turnover has commenced and one of the moves made has landed the Jets a new offensive coordinator in Marty Mornhinweg. A tough job awaits Mornhinweg as he attempts to turn around the 28th scoring offense from last season.
One of the keys to turning around that offense will be quarterback Mark Sanchez who regressed last season. One would think that the Jets need Sanchez to take a step forward if there is any hope of an explosive offense. But if you ask Mornhinweg himself, the team doesn’t need an extremely accurate quarterback.
Per Newyorkjets.com: “Some of the great ones have really not thrown for such great accuracy,” Mornhinweg said. “Steve Young was astronomical accuracy-wise. Brett Favre wasn’t. Brett Favre, I believe won an MVP two different times out of the three times that he won it, throwing 58, 59, 60 percent, somewhere in there. So they all come in different shapes and sizes.”
“Those guys that throw for a little bit less accuracy typically are generating a little bit bigger plays on occasion. There’s a little bit of a tradeoff there,” Mornhinweg said.
I understand the premise but to compare Brett Favre to your current quarterback Mark Sanchez is a stretch to say the least.
Offensively the Jets will be a repeat of last season if Mark Sanchez doesn’t improve. Completing just 54% of his passes last season, Sanchez certainly has some work to do.

Oh the weather outside (in the Delaware Valley) is frightful today. I stand on my front porch with arms akimbo, daring the 40mph winds bending my 80-feet-high poplar (and pounding it with a mix of snow and rain) to do some damage. Bring it. I am tired of cowering in worry about being crushed to death. After all, I'm an Iggles fan. We don't tremble anymore---we roar.
