Sean,

Isn't the data re. the Jets' passing offense based on a very small sample size, which is further skewed by the New Orleans game? And isn't it possible the Jets' passing attack has been hampered by the lack of a downfield threat (like Edwards)to complement Cotchery and Keller?

Blast it, I thought we were talking Herm.

Are-tee,

Absolutely. In fact, I would expect that Sanchez will significantly outperform the Cleveland quarterbacks by year's end, rookie or no rookie. But I think most people assume that Sanchez has significantly outperformed Quinn and Anderson to date, and that's not really the case.
