FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- DeAngelo Hall thinks he has a pretty good read on Mark Sanchez.

"He doesn't take as many chances as much as he just gets confused sometimes," the Redskins' cornerback told The Washington Post. "A lot of times he just comes out and stares a receiver down, tries to throw him the ball. He puts it on those guys to make plays. They haven't made as many plays this year as they have in previous years."

Brian Schottenheimer, as one might expect, isn't on board with Hall. "I would not say that, when we evaluate it, that he is staring down his receivers," the Jets' offensive coordinator said Thursday. "We think he's working through his progressions. I think there are some decisions he'd like to have back, but I don't agree with that."

Hall doesn't believe Sanchez is a top quarterback. "I'd say he's middle-of-the-pack," Hall said. "Definitely not the worst in the league. He's a capable quarterback."


Moore observes

Offensive consultant Tom Moore was in the house Thursday, checking out practice.

It was a regularly scheduled visit for the 72-year-old, who's mostly been helping out from his South Carolina home by viewing game footage to see how he can aid in improving the offense.

"We got him out of the house," Rex Ryan said. "So that was good. I'd like to get him around more. I'm going to try to keep him here."

Moore spent the last 13 seasons in Indianapolis, working with the Colts.

"Tom might be the most positive person I've ever been around," Schottenheimer said. "A couple of weeks ago, we lost to somebody and he sends me the fax, his summary of the game and it was like, 'Positive this, positive that.' I was like, 'Man, I can't believe it.' "
