Curran: Sanchez should air it out vs. Patriots

You'd think that with the Jets coming to town, the Patriots secondary could breathe a sigh of relief.

After all, Mark Sanchez isn't exactly Joe Namath. And Tim Tebow, well, he's Tim Tebow.

But then you see Russell Wilson go off on New England, and consider the Patriots injuries now.

Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran says why not throw it?

"You look at what happened yesterday, the back end of the Patriots defense, there's no guarantees we're going to see Patrick Chung with the shoulder come back; Steve Gregory has missed two weeks. So the back end of the secondary is in a little disarray," Curran said.

Jets running back Shonn Green looked good last game, but that shouldn't be the focal point of New York's offense come Sunday.

"Go ahead and roll Mark Sanchez out and take your shots down the field," Curran said. "I think that even though they had reduced attempts yesterday relative to what they normally would, if he doesn't throw 30 passes, somebody needs to lose a job not me."
