Even with Mangold likely returning, there's still a great deal of worry about the Jets passing game against the Patriots. On Thursday, during practice, Rex Ryan had Mark Sanchez and the Jets offense running plays against a timed buzzer in order to increase the tempo of their routes, an old Bill Parcells trick, according to Erik Manassy of Jets Twit.

I think these kinds of excersizes--forcing Sanchez to increase the speed of his decision-making and better track of time while pushing the receivers to get open faster--can only help the offense improve. Hopefully it'll be enough for the Patriots.
