After breaking down film, Scouts Inc. gives its take on what to watch in the NFL this weekend:
What's wrong with the Jets' offense?
Young QB Mark Sanchez is forcing the ball into simple coverages like Cover 2 when the holes are not there, telegraphing his passes by locking on to one receiver, and his footwork and ball security seem to be sloppy. However, it is not all Sanchez's fault. His pass protection up front is inconsistent and his receivers drop balls. Maybe the most alarming thing is that the chemistry between the QB and WRs seems to be lacking. There is not much of a sight-adjustment facet to this offense, and they just don't read the same coverages on a consistent basis. That leads to costly mistakes.
