Sanchez Hits the Dirt

Mark Sanchez's refusal to slide rather than take a hit was a constant source of frustration for Jets fans last season. It led to an injury that forced him to miss a game. At camp today he finally slid with a defender moving in on him. Gang Green Nation has a reaction.

It's was easy to get frustrated with Sanchez for not sliding last year. I know I was at times. It might seem simple, but it really isn't. You can try and change something in practice. A guy still reverts to his familiar instincts at game time. Habits are not easy to change on the fly in the middle of a season. It might take months of low pressure practice, breaking everything down to get rid of bad tendencies.
