I don't think that was the intent at all, despite the blown-out-of-proportions response to it.
A desire to see our QB's hit their WR"s in stride in not a bad thing.
A desire to see OUR QB, specificly Mark Sanchez, hit his WR's in stride....is to be expected, given exactly how horrible he has been at doing just that over the course of his career here.
The fact the specific play in question was later revealed to be a long in-endzone TD does not change the desire I believe was expressed in the comment, that it would be nice to see our QB's be able to hit their WR's in-stride far more often, reducing the requirements to "lay out full" just to make routine complentions.
Of course alay-out TD is good. An in-stride TD is better, if only because it displays superior accuracy (and/or abillity of a WR to get open) than one that requires laying out.
Come on already!!
Unless a WR has run for day lite it may require a WR making a play on a 40 yard TD PASS!!!
Ummm who in their right mind doesn't want a QB to hit a WR in stride!! Is that what I said or that it doesn't matter????
Indeed it was stated in the ORIGINAL TWEETS that the passes were long td passes..
You want to hate on all things Sanchez that is your perogative. But please don't get upset when I wont join in!!

I just wanted to make one observation....everyone is hating on sanchez and its justified...BUT after a few days in which the O looked pretty dam good, it was nice to see OUR D step up and play better!!! There are 2 sides to this, a pick by Sanchez is bad for him, but its good for Cro...just saying
Do you think the starter preseason game 1 will be indicative of who has the lead?
The action is really heating up.
IF Mark loses out to Geno, on a level playing field, i will have lost even that much more respect for him.
I wouldn't really take that much into account. If it happens to be Mark, then Geno will absolutely start the 2nd game and vice versa. I think after those two, whoever has the lead, will get the nod for game 3 where the starters see most of the action.
After reading all the tweets the best thing I'm getting out of it is Geno
continues to show that he may start slowly but he recovers and picks
up his performance. I wonder will Sanchez be able to respond to the
challenge or will his performance continue to nosedive? Because he
was very confident he would win this competition
