The first, Sanchez lead his team to a lead at halftime that Rex Ryan's defense couldnt keep in the second half.
The second, Rex Ryan's defense spots a 24 point lead before you can blink an eye. Sanchez leads a nice comeback that ends up just short. If I remember correctly, it was Rex Ryan's defense that needed a stop to gie Sanchez one more chance to tie it up with a TD but couldnt come up big when needed.
As for your rookie QBs:
RG3 has a top offensive minded HC, leading RB yards-wise in the NFL in Morris, leader in yardage at TE in Fred Davis before his injury, veteran Pro Bowl Wr Pierre Garcon and a veteran burner in Santana Moss.
Luck has veteran Pro Bowler Reggie Wayne
Weeden has Trent Richardson
Tannehill has Reggie Bush
I'd take anyone on these players over any JET presently
If you are going to use $2 words, at least be sure that you understand the meaning of them first
Tebow lined up as one of our starting QBs options to throw to
"Hot Sauce" comments all week that indirectly puts a bulls eye on our starting QBs back
Unblocked defenders T-ing off for a sack
Yeah, Sanchez has no excuses for his performance today..........
Wow, frakking earth shattering. Yep, the rest of the team let Sanchez down by putting him in such a big hole and making it impossible for him to do anything about it.
Here's something for you, just for kicks:

Now, for an completely earth shattering stat:
First 6 (SIX) Drives: 22 plays for a net of 27 yards
That is why we lost.
If we had Stanton, no doubt in my mind Sanchez gets pulled yesterday. Stanton wouldn't have been our savior, but Mark is done in NY. It's obvious that Tebow was our money-grubbing owner's brainchild. Only here to boost his bottom line b/c the guy doesn't even play.
What is wrong with the jets is just a lack of talent on offense. not a philosophy or scheme issue. If they had Faneca and woody back and Moore was 3 years younger, and you had Thomas jones as a bell cow back, the ground and pound would be just as good an idea as it was then.
It doesn't matter if the RBs are lined up in passing formations or in the I. hell, Urban Meyer's Spread Option is "ground and pound" and they rarely used I formation.
Ground and pound is a philosophy, not a formation. It's a dedication to running the ball a lot. The devil is in the details though. Does "a lot" mean 50% of the time > 55% ? 60%?
In this "pass happy" era being talked about, the Pats have 210 passing attempts and 276 rushing attempts. That's a run/pass ratio of 55% rush to 45% pass.
Take a look at the run splits by quarter.
Not to bash you but you really aren't that technical. Like your description of Florida's offense (calling it a wildcat with Tebow), it's completely wrong and that's okay, but you throw around labels without really knowing what they mean. The labels have very specific meanings to people who do more than casually watch the game and regurgitate what they hear on the news.
Secondly, go back and look at the post I initially replied to, AND read what I actually wrote in my reply:
The point that I am making is that instead of going to even more of a passing attack, in this pass happy league, teams like the Pats are going the other way. They are passing LESS and running MORE now. They've figured out that it does indeed help to have a strong rushing attack.
I'm not saying that Brady isn't going to pass anymore. Or that the Pats are going to a 60/40 run/pass ratio, but they have dialed the rushing game up and are relying less on the passing game.
