Gang Green Nation: After First Throw, Mark Sanchez Looks Good In Jets' Preseason Loss To Giants

Mark Sanchez’s first pass of the season was intercepted and returned for a near touchdown. Once he got that out of his system, Sanchez then put together a solid exhibition performance, completing 13-of-17 passes for 119 yards in the Jets’ 31-16 preseason loss to the Giants. Gang Green Nation doesn’t much care about the outcome of the game but is pretty pleased with Mark’s progression.

-Mark Sanchez’s first throw was everything he should have spent the offseason learning to avoid. He decided to throw the ball to LaDainian Tomlinson the second he left the huddle. He locked onto the back and didn’t go through his progressions once the primary target was covered.

-The rest of the game, he was terrific. Let’s be honest. He didn’t face any really confusing fronts. He also had a few series against second stringers. Even so, he looked good. He made smart decisions with the football. He went through his progressions. He put the ball into places where either his receivers would catch it or the ball would be incomplete.

Meaningless losses aside, the Jets escaped the game without any injuries, which is a victory in and of itself.
