And its hard to achieve 60% passing percentage when you feature the run not to set up the pass. Take any QB with a greater than 60% completion rate, put them in repeated 3rd and longs and watch that % come down. Those teams get around that by passing more when its not expected or passing to loosen up the run. The Jets pass as an afterthought and we've all seen the results.
Face it Flacco is maybe the best deep ball QB in the game, but the problem is the Jets don't throw deep with any regularity like any pro offense would, they throw deep out of desperation.
