Not only did Miles look like he belonged, he looked like he was having fun playing football and it wasn't just a paycheck. the kid looked like he was having the time of his life on the field and I hope he keeps it up.
Fitz has been much better than anyone expected. he gets rid of the ball quickly and typically finds the open receiver. he's playing the best football we've seen since favre pre-injury. kellen davis is what he is. he's a 4th string TE on a TE weak team forced to play because everyone else is hurt. if you want to blame someone blame either Idzik for not addressing the position or Pryor for being a douche in mini-camp. there is almost no reason that kellen davis should see the field and he is basically a starter due to injury.
fumbles happen, it's part of the game. it sucks that is cost a TD and likely the game but it's still part of the game and it was a rookie who fumbled. the Jets still had a many chances to come back from it and win the game....this loss is not on a special teams coach and you can't just cut your 2nd rd pick because he made a mistake. bowles is much more to blame for his decision making and time management than a special teams coach who is on his 4th string kick returner.
no. there is very little downside to being down 13 to being down 12. either way its 2 TD's. If buffalo kicks another FG it's 1 2pt conversion vs. 2 - which is an ok risk to me. this was a bad game for bowles on the decision making side period. He's conservative by nature when it comes to decisions....which is fine, but this was bad and probably cost the jets a playoff spot. the win was there to be had but he really put the jets in a bad spot last night.
this was a bad all around game for bowles when it came to decision making. you really can't reconcile going for 1 in the 3rd, wasting 35 seconds at the end of the 3rd, and then not kicking the FG early in the 4th quarter. I though the end of the game decision was fine but was more the result of being boxed in by poor game management up to that point. the defense came to play last night, it's unfortunate that Bowles was unprepared to deal with adversity.
