But second-year signal-beat call interception early and showed flashes of brilliance in the Jets 31-16 loss in the first preseason game for the Giants, looking every bit like a quarterback ready to take a significant step in his second season. Sanchez was 13-for-17 with one touchdown and one interception in leading the way to the Jets offense renewed for three runs in five units.
“I felt confident,” Sanchez said. “I felt good in the peloton. I definitely felt in control.”
Rex Ryan unconventional decision to play their starters for the entire first half of the first preseason game a lot of opportunities Sanchez to erase the memory of his error in the first quarter. Sanchez made a terrible decision in the play of the Jets second line of scrimmage, trying to squeeze a pass in a double deck LaDainian Tomlinson. The shot was deflected behind Tomlinson and Antrel Rolle’s arms waiting for an easy choice. Rolle’s 59-yard return set up a Giants touchdown short “for the first score of the game.
“I do not think you could automate a worse start,” Sanchez said. “Maybe last year would have been very upset (and) in landfills. This year, it was easier (for example) is not much. Let us. … It was more important to move forward and reach the next play, but I wanted to make sure I was not trying to force anything after that. ”
Sanchez was tough on the next series, taking advantage of most weapons. He completed six of eight passes for 49 yards and found five different receivers to run 17 plays to score from 68 yards. The second-year player made a pair of key third-down completions and covered by the flash unit of his intelligence. After recognizing that the Giants struggled with too many men on the field, fast and shot broke his left wide open for Brad Smith for an easy 4-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 at the end of the first quarter.
“Maybe last year if that had happened, his head would have been spinning and have been down on himself,” tight end Dustin Keller said. “But this year, he just knows he needs to recover. He made all kinds of great shots throughout the field after that.”
Sanchez exposed halfway Giants’ second team defense during the second quarter, completing six of his passes on a disc ends with the second goal from Nick Folk field of the first half.
He insisted that “want (ed) to expect a coup” to remove any lingering doubts that he was fully healed from offseason left knee arthroscopic surgery. The Giants only had a clean shot – a sack of Jason Pierre-Paul at the end of the first half, did not seem upset Sanchez, who was not wearing a protective brace or sleeve. Six months after Sanchez had to stabilize the knee procedure, he believes it is healthier than ever.
Quarterback felt that surgery was a blessing in disguise, allowing you to fix the injury once and for all. It also gave the opportunity to register a lot of hours in the cinema, to accelerate their understanding of pass protection and defensive schemes.
After that first error, showed he has learned a lot.
“It’s all looked good training camp,” said Ryan. “So he came in and did what he expected to do.”
