The Jets are made of offensive problems, and no one has done anything to fix them.
The only people to believe that the “dynamic duo” in Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow would actually work were those in the front office of the New York Jets. The 3-6 monstrosity has done nothing but failed to prove that their offensive struggles could be fixed with a two quarterback system. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano has exploited an inconsistency in the Jets offensive play through substituting quarterbacks Sanchez and Tebow in their offensive drives.
Sanchez has not been able to find a rhythm on the field for a few reasons. First, his offensive line has not given him a chance to stay on his feet. The Seahawks sacked Sanchez three times on Sunday, with one of them forcing Sanchez to fumble the ball. Second, he loses his momentum by substituting Tebow in and out of the game. The team hoped that by picking up Tim Tebow that the duo would be a game plan threat to try to throw off opposing defenses. Instead, it has disrupted a consistency in the offense and has not been effective at all thus far. And third, Sanchez has minimal offensive weapons. Sanchez has not been connecting well with his go-to receiver Dustin Keller. Stephen Hill looked good towards the beginning of the season but has not been an offensive threat since game one. Sanchez has been able to make a few decent connections with Jeremy Kerley, but none significant enough to be valuable.
The Jets have placed themselves in a hole most likely far too deep to climb out of. Rex Ryan is still insisting that Sanchez is his starting guy. While Tebow is probably not the answer, it can’t possibly hurt the Jets to try him out in a more significant role at this point. All in all, this is a poorly constructed team and it might not matter who the quarterback is right now. If his offensive line is in shambles and has no weapons to throw to, neither quarterback has a shot at being successful.
The Jets need to re-evaluate their entire offensive plan.
