    Sanchez and Cold Weather...

    He looked pretty good out there in the snow. I don't wanna here this nonsense about him not being able to handle the cold, completely unfounded. Also does anyone think that him always having two hands on the football before he threw helped his accuracy? He just seemed way more consistent when he held it like that.

    Just another myth haters say about Sanchez. Before this season it was that he couldn't bring the Jets back in the 4th quarter or overtime. The recent ones are that he can't beat a good defense, and of course, he can't play in the cold because he's a "SOCAL SURFER DUDE, HURR DURR".

    He should try gloves like the other guy was wearing.

    Sanchez looked pretty sharp today. A few poor passes, but much better than the past few weeks.

    The whole thing about him not playing well in the cold was always B.S. He played two of his best games last year in ridiculously cold conditions (both Bengals games).

    He's played poorly the last few weeks because of two things. First he's looked off-balance when he throws. Second the plays called have been horrible.

    Yesterday he threw with his feet set, and the plays called for manageable passes, and he looked much better.

    Anyone notice the consistent use of designed roll out plays? I don't think he was incomplete on any of those throws since he's more accurate on the run.

    Looks like Schotty has been reading JI. :yes:

    +10000000

    Every time he rushes he throws bad passes.
    When he sets his feet & fires it's like night & day

    Almost threw a pick when he tossed one throwing off his back foot.
    Brady looked mortal when he got pressure, normally he just gets to stand back there for 10 seconds.
    Pressure changes everything. Every game Sanchez plays, it adds to his video library to correct the mistakes.

    I think that he had a great week of practice w/ a lot of focus on footwork, ball security, and BALANCE as a product of the two to give him a solid base to throw from. So yes. But a partial yes.

    Can someone do a statistical analysis of Sanchez versus the opposing QB in games this season? If we throw out the New England game...let's run through Sanchez's (BAD WEATHER) bad games:

    Baltimore (played on par with Flacco)
    Green Bay (outplayed Rodgers)
    Miami (outplayed Henne)
    Pittsburgh (technically outplayed Big Ben in terms of passer ratings)

    So while Sanchez is far from perfect...we've had a string of very bad weather...and Sanchez has more or less held his own in comparison to some of the league's elite.

    Sanchez's problems with the weather have more to do with the wind than the cold.

    Plus it helps your throws when you are sprinting away from James Harrison, et al!!

    I watched him play terrific against the Vikes in a freaking deluge... the guy is just a bit inconsistent thats all. The talent is there and with time he is a special player.

    Good idea, throw out his worst game in awful weather against an awful D so his numbers look better?
