    The play set the tone of the offense that night, conservative. To beat a bully, you have to punch them in the face and show that you are not afraid. If Sanchez had gone in there strong, not carelessly but strong, and gotten the first down that game would have been totally different. You can't be a ***** and be a champion.

    This honestly reads like a joke after all the noise last year about his unwillingness to slide.

    Exactly. One could argue that the slide was Sanchez's smartest play of the game.

    Oh no not Ray Lewis!!!! Have some god damn balls, thats why it would have made it even better. Lewis didn't have the angle, and it the kid dove he wouldn't have taken a head on shot. Let's settle for average and conservative instead of GREAT

    Yeah, you got some real big balls sitting on your couch at home drinking a light beer.

    Diving head first in the 1st quarter of the 1st game of the season makes a ton of sense.

    "Oh no not Ray Lewis!!!!"??

    you say that like the guy isn't both one of the most feared and talented linebackers in the game AND a friggin murderer...there are plenty of things to kill sanchez about yesterday, this is absolutely not one of them

    Everyone has an opinion, doesnt mean they're right or know what they're talking about.

    Sanchez did the RIGHT THING by sliding on that play. There were 3 defenders, including Ray Lewis (who was knocking heads around last night), waiting for him IF he dove, ready to take his head off.

    Sanchez slides and he gets the first down, no doubt.

    BUT he also gets a concussion and is out for weeks, you gotta play smart, and on that play SANCHEZ DID.

    Joe Girardi would've been proud of that slide.

    When Sanchez has been in this league a few more years...he will know when to take his chances. But not at this time. Mark did exactly what Rex has been pleading for him to do...slide...so you can get up and go back to the huddle for another play.

    Your right that you gotta play with balls and guts, BUT you also gotta play smart.

    Sanchez is the QUARTERBACK of this team, this team is going as far as HE can take them (not Brunell, not Clemens) and diving head first when he could get cracked in the HEAD or THROWING SHOULDER in the 1st quarter of the 1st game of the year is a STUPID move, and thankfully he didnt do it.

    Now you can argue REX needed some balls and went for it on 4th down, I wouldnt of had a problem with that. The offense needs to be more agressive to be successful, but there is a FINE LINE between being AGGRESSIVE and being STUPID.

    Matt Cassel and Phillip Rivers (twice) both ran and took a hit to make a key 1st down last night.

    If the Jets have the mentality that the QB cannot under any circumstance be hurt when running they should forbid him to run at all. Of course more QB's get hurt getting creamed in the pocket than running.

    There are times you have to chuck the rules out the door in a close game to do what's necessary to win. He didn't do it. (It might not be his fault as others have mentioned due to being told what to do by the coaches.) If a guy wants to be a true leader at times he has to do things that make the rest of the team stand up and take notice, and that includes toughness and being willing to take a hit to make a play. Not all the time and not totally reckless but there are key times you have to make that game changing play.

    I was trying to will a first down on that Sanchez run....just slide a split second later. IT would have been a huge pickup for the Jets O.

    But, as much as we wanted that play, a first down in the first week of the season is not reason enough for your QB to risk his health and season. If they thought that this was their only opportunity to score, they should have gone for it on 4th down.

    Of all the criticism I have for Sanchez, he did the right thing there.

    From the article on the front page

    Sanchez dropped back to pass, scanned around the field and didnít see anything he liked, except for a gapping hole in the middle of the field. Sanchez tucked the ball and scrambled for the first-down marker.It looked like he had plenty of room to make it, but Sanchez picked that exact moment to listen to his coaches advice from last year, as he played it safe sliding to the turf. Even with the slide it looked as if Sanchez picked up the first-down, but a questionable spot from the refs forced the Jets to settle for another field goal from Nick Folk, this one from 28 yards, to give the Jets a 6-0 lead.

    Exactly, he had plenty of room to make it

    Just not a wuss thats all. Not be a champion you have to make plays and that would have been a HUGE play and he had plenty of time to make it. He slid too early.

    Yeah, Sanchez is a big puss, afraid to dive for extra yardage

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAJv9uhz1Tc

    He was coached to slide, and Ray Lewis was coming at him full steam.

    This is a pretty poor thread here.

    That's exactly what he could have done last night, and Lewis was far enough away that contact like that would have been avoided. He slid too early. You have to show the Ravens D that you aren't afraid, unless you are which is what it looked like last night. Sounds like you were too.

This kid doesn't have the "it" factor to be an elite QB in the NFL.
    Thats absurd. He had two Raven defenders closing in. And one of them beng Ray Lewis. That head first dive could have been very dangerous.
    He doesnt have the IT factor cause he saved himself a possible head injury?

    This wasnt the SUPERBOWL. In the SUPERBOWL, 4th Quarter...I expect him to dive head first. Not last night. Not Week 1.

    If this was the last game of the year, we needed to win to make the playoffs would you say the same thing? A win at the beginning of the years is exactly equal to a win in the last game of the year.
