    4 for 4 in the Red Zone

    That's why we won the game. That's why Sanchez had a good (not great) day, and certainly not a bad one.


    People on Football Outsiders complain about the red zone bonus in their formula, but that's why it's there. Red zone performance is significantly more important than performance between the 20s.

    Sanchez had a bad day between the 20s. He was great in the red zone. We won the game.

    For all the foolish debate of "Has Sanchez regressed" during the 2-game losing streak, a topic I won't address here, Red Zone efficiency is definitely the biggest improvement Mark has made from Years 1-2 into Year 3.

    It certainly helps to have a Red Zone behemoth in Burress, but the offense is really maximizing its opportunities inside the 20 this year. That at least is helping offset the lack of deep plays and quick scoring drives that we saw in 2009 & 2010.

    Notice how two of the TDs were made outside of the pocket, and yet surprisingly those are the only two times we saw Mark outside of the tackle box today IIRC. Albeit the game-winning pass wasn't a designed rollout, we saw what he can do when he is throwing on the run. More please.

    Figured there would be not much action in this thread......Why talk about anything positive like Red Zone performance.....

    3 of the drives were for 78 yards or more also but hell the Jets only scored because of blown coverages if you listen to the happy crowd....:yes:
