Sanchez's turnovers came from 'poor decisions'

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez's problem with turnovers were a result of "poor decision-making," says quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh to the New York Daily News.

Cavanaugh said he wants Sanchez to do a better job of managing the game and focusing on that, knowing when the risk is worth it and when it is not.

“There were turnovers that were not his fault that were credited to him,” Cavanaugh said. “But there were enough that playing that position he needs to cut some of those down. Most of them came from just poor decision-making.

"So I spent a lot of time with him talking about ‘Let’s get focused on managing the game,'" Cavanaugh added. “Taking the big plays when they’re there (and) understanding that... even though it’s drawn up to be a touchdown, not every play has to be a touchdown. Not every play has to be a completion. Sometimes throwing it away is a good thing. Sometimes taking a sack is better than throwing an interception.”
