and dont forget when sanchez throws the deep ball its actually quite pretty, its just that unfortunately like the one pass to schillens against ARI, it was a perfect pass, but Peterson on ARI made an unreal play (probably the pick of the year), and Schillens did nothing to even prevent the pick. Heck, even if Peterson didnt make the play, I am sure Schillens would have dropped it anyway, and fairweather Jet fans would still blame Sanchez. Its Sanchez' fault no matter what, when you are in NY and among fairweather Jet fans.

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.
