    Jets' Mark Sanchez doing extra to connect with receivers

    By Conor Orr/The Star-Ledger

    Mark Sanchez got the attention of his receivers, tight ends, running backs and fellow quarterbacks after a practice before the preseason game with Carolina last week and told them all to gather in the meeting room in 10 minutes.

    He’d secured the film from the practice they just completed and put it on the projector screen, stealing away the first few moments of freedom players use to soak in the cold tub or stop off at the cafeteria.

    As the reps scrolled by, he pointed out when the passing game was out of sync. What a perfect play should look like. When a route was cut too short.

    Jordan White, a rookie receiver, had seen the struggles caused by an unhealthy core of wide receivers this camp. He knew that to replace the time spent from missed reps, these meetings would become crucial.

    “Nobody is saying no to him,” said White who was waived tonight at the Jets cut down to their 53-man roster. “He commanded us on where he wanted to be. He got us all on the same page, and I think I paid off.”

    For another year, the cram sessions — a reoccurring fixture that took place during the regular season last year — have become a necessity to help the passing game sustain itself through a series of injuries.

    Santonio Holmes, the returning playmaker, injured his ribs in the preseason Green and White game and made a limited debut against Carolina.

    Jeremy Kerley, the team’s slot receiver, hurt his hamstring early in a camp practice and played in one preseason game as well.

    Chaz Schilens, brought in this offseason from Oakland, injured his ankle against the Cincinnati Bengals in the preseason opener and has not been in a game since.

    In some ways, it’s no different than Sanchez’s experience in last year’s preseason, when it was a struggle to get Holmes, Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason on the field at the same time. Now there is also a new offense to learn.

    From that experience, Sanchez said he learned only “that you need reps during training camp. Other than that,…there’s nothing really to do, other than prepare, study and use this time as best you can,” he said. “So we can’t use that as an excuse, and no one is going to feel bad for us.”

    White said that in separate wide receiver meetings, some have privately discussed the need to increase conditioning workouts to ensure that there was no lag once they returned to the field and that the timing stays the same so Sanchez and the receivers don’t have to forge a relationship all over again.

    “We have to do a better job for him,” White said. “A lot of us have been down, a lot of us have been injured and coming back at different times. So obviously it’s tough for a guy like him who’s been there this whole time and he’s getting mixed reviews from the receivers.”

    Schilens, who said today that his ankle will be healthy enough to allow him to play against Buffalo in the opener, opted to take some extra sessions with Sanchez following practice.

    Kerley, who feels 100 percent for the first time in more than a month and plans to play next Sunday, opted for side conversations throughout practice.

    “We stayed talking to him,” Kerley said. “We stayed communicating, so I think the timing is right where it needs to be.”

    White got some extra time in today. After practice, he ran a route slightly off, causing Sanchez to overthrow a pass. When the ball arrived, still in a catchable range, White dropped it. Sanchez turned to him and said, “Let’s get that after practice” and tracked him down a short while later, making White run it five more times.

    “We fixed that right there,” White said. “I can tell any little detail he’s willing to fix. This guy obviously cares about it more than anything else going on.”

    Nice!!! Take command Sanchez. The first time someone pulls a holMEs bench his ass. And Rex better back you up.

    DDNY: This is leadership by example. How can someone say no when Mark is there putting in the time one on one, obviously not just with one player. It bodes well for this year.

    Thanks for posting this C Mart.

    But Rex is losing the team

    Sanchez sucks

    Tebow will be a starter by game 4



    GREAT article!

    Why can't the other beats produce the quality material that Jenny and Connor produce for the Star Ledger?

    They're not in the same dogfight for page views and paper sales that the Post, Daily News, and ESPN are.

    That's not what it said.

    Mark Sanchez got the attention of his receivers, tight ends, running backs and fellow quarterbacks after a practice before the preseason game with Carolina last week and told them all to gather in the meeting room in 10 minutes.

    They went through the whole practice as a group of skill players. It sounds like the type of thing Sanchez tried to start doing at the end of last year, when everything was imploding. If you remember, it was reported that Holmes was skipping out on extra meetings that Sanchez was having during the week leading up to the Miami game.

    Yup. He seems to be maturing before our eyes. I love his reaction to the Tebow addition. This is going to work.

    This is a very good read and exactly why ultimately. Sanchez will prevail. Thank you for posting it.

    Exactly.

    Always has been, just needed to grow into the role, and he will continue to do so.

    After reading that, one would think White is the vet and all the other schmo's are rookies.

    Interesting that Holmes was not interviewed for this piece.

    Sanchez is certainly saying and doing the right things but we have heard this before. Sanchez looked good against Carolina, about as good as I have seen him. Hopefully his consistency and accuracy is much improved this year. I am optimistic that he will excel this year and god help us if he doesnt. The last thing I want to see is Tebow out there taking the snaps.

    BUT BUT BUT HE SUX DOE, RIGHT? HE HAS A FRAGILE MIND DOE AND ACTS LIKE A BABY DOE!

    Oh wait, none of that is true. It's always funny how Sanchez gets torn down for looking glum after his line lets the D play "Decapitate the Sanchez" all night, but when Brady or just about any other QB does it it's just them being so competitive. Give me a break.
