Mark Sanchez saw something familiar when he watched the Jets Packers game on Sunday.
The former Jets quarterback mentioned this to his rookie year when the Jets often won with a solid defense and a tough running game and just asked him not to throw any interceptions. This year’s team is starting to look like the 2009 team. Zach Wilson completed just 10 of 18 passes for 110 yards in Sunday’s win at Green Bay.
no one You can relate to what Wilson is going through More than Sanchez.
“I think it’s more difficult when you’re in it, and you’re living it,” Sanchez told The Post, “because every quarterback wants to either throw a game-winning touchdown or go throw five touchdowns for 300 yards and go to a passing clinic. That’s what you want to do.” Turning around, turning the ball 30 times in the game is not attractive. However, you also want to win and that desire to win is more important than your personal stats.”
these planes win Just as Sanchez’s team did in 2009. The Gates 3-0 since Wilson’s comeback from a knee injury and 4-2 overall. Sanchez’s junior team went 9-7 and ran into the Asian Championship match.
Sanchez got off to a strong start after the Jets drafted him at number five from USC, but then threw five interceptions against the Bills and the Jets cut back what they demanded of him. Instead, Rex Ryan leaned on his defense, a great offensive line and ran back to Thomas Jones.
Sanchez praised Gates coach Robert Saleh and his staff for recognizing this was their best way to win, but he also said they needed to make sure of that. Keep developing Wilsonwhich is in its second season.
“If that’s the formula for your team and it was for us in 2009 when the team sometimes had to win in spite of me, well that’s the formula,” Sanchez said. “You almost have to protect the guys from themselves sometimes. At the same time, you want them to grow up. There’s a very thin line you have to walk and kind of a tightrope, well, that’s our formula for winning, but we also want to develop our midfielder and really make sure that He’s the master of the situation, so when it’s time to cut him shoot the ball and hit the ball around, it’s not very strange to him because all we do is run the ball.”
At one point in Sanchez’s junior season, the Jets put on a color-coded bracelet to remind him when to be aggressive and when to call him back. These Jets didn’t do that with Wilson, and Sanchez wouldn’t recommend it to any young player.
Despite this, Sanchez has seen two plays from Wilson recently that have him worried. The interception just before halftime in Pittsburgh when Gates could have had a field goal and the close interception he threw into the end zone at Green Bay in the second quarter on Sunday was worrisome. Sanchez said it’s about trying to do too much.
She’s like, ‘What a bone move,’ Sanchez said, ‘but I totally understand what he’s thinking.’
The key to the airplane boom, Sanchez said With Wilson’s low role It is to make sure he doesn’t lose the part that made him second overall.
They should keep reminding him [to be careful with the football] Sanchez said. “You don’t want to remove the kid’s needle completely. Because at some point you’re going to be in a 37-35 barn stove and you don’t want him to be too cold and afraid to shoot his gun. That’s a fine fine line for how much to fall back on. As long as you keep teaching, I just think the dialogue Continuity is crucial.”
Sanchez’s junior season ended in the playoffs as he played what he called “effective” football. Sanchez won four games on the road in his first two years, a feat that remains impressive.
Sanchez, who is now inviting Fox to the games, is very happy to see his former team win matches. As a rookie, he bought four personal seat licenses for Jets games at MetLife Stadium, and thought his family could watch him play there for years. So Sanchez has some financial investment in this team as well.
“It was really fun to watch,” Sanchez said. “Bottom line, those four PSLs I own, I can’t sell them until they win games. It helps me. In the past few years it’s been hard to even give up.”
