Mark Sanchez spoke exclusively to the New York Post on Tuesday, and here is some of what he had to say –
“I think we just wanted to be smart. We hit a long pass to Dustin, and we [are flagged for an illegal shift]. It’s like, ‘There’s the
vertical passing game for you! We just shot ourselves in the foot. I don’t think it had anything to do with the play-calling. I know Schotty wants a couple of plays back, like you do every game, but we all had our share in this loss. I think we played undisciplined football. I do think guys know better. We practice at it. We work at those fine details of the game. We didn’t execute [Monday]. It was just a sloppy performance, and I don’t think anybody would argue that. We lost by one point and played pretty poorly. The sun came up, we knew it would, and there’s nothing wrong with going 15-1. I’m confident in our scheme. Nothing changes [because of Monday night]. It’s way too early to hit the panic button.”
Kudos to the Post for landing this exclusive.
