Jets Winners \ Losers


31 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

The New York Jets beat the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 37 -13.  A win in the preseason doesn’t mean a lot, what is more important is how they played.  So let’s take a look at the winners and losers based on this game:

 

Winners

 

Offensive Line - The Jets ran for 176 yards and averaged 4.4 yards per carry.  The Jaguars had two sacks on the day, but for most of the game the Jets quarterbacks had excellent protection and a lot of time to throw.

 

Bilal Powell - He is proving to be something Tim Tebow was not; good at the wildcat.  Powell had 68 yards rushing and averaged a whopping 9.7 yards per carry.  This will be a two back offense, the Jets hope Chris Ivory can stay healthy.  If so, they like their 1-2 punch.

 

Marty Morhinweg – The Jets had 408 yards of offense and 24 first downs.  They ran the wildcat extremely well and the young receivers seem to be made for this offense.

 

Ben Kotwica – Ben is taking over as Special Teams Coordinator for Mike Westhoff, who retired.  If you look at the performance of the Jets special teams units last year, you can make the case that Westhoff actually retired before last season.  Unfortunately he didn’t let anyone know because it wasn’t a strong year for the Jets on special teams.  Tonight though Ben can be proud and here is why:

  1. His primary kickoff returner, Clyde Gates, looked explosive with 100 yards on 3 returns
  2. His kickers were 3 for 3 on the day. Billy Cundiff made his two attempts but the highlight was a 54 yard field goal by Nick Folk

Kahlil Bell – Stats don’t always tell the whole story.  Kahlil had 11 carries for 29 yards but he also had 2 rushing TDs. Several of his carries came in the red zone and he showed strength and elusiveness.  When the coaches watch the film Bell’s game is another reason that Joe McKnight should be worried.

 

Matt Simms - The Jets made the decision to not play Greg McElroy because of his ankle injury.  McElroy seemed to be a safe bet to win the 3rd QB job. If anything could change that it is a 5 for 5 performance by Matt Simms who averaged an impressive 14.6 yards per completion.

 

Jets Marketing Department - They sent out a brochure saying the J E T S chant would be handled with sections of the stadium each doing one letter.  It was universally regarded as being a terrible idea.  There was no sign of that during the game and they introduced the Aviators Drum Line.  They were entertaining and definitely showed potential.

 

Losers

 

Dee Milliner - When you are a rookie, you often play like a rookie.  That is exactly what happened tonight.  Milliner will have to get better, he was a liability in pass coverage against the Jaguars.

 

Damon Harrison - Filling in for the injured Kenrick Ellis, this was his chance to shine.  The game film isn’t going to be kind to Damon who struggled, especially early in the game.

 

Joe McKnight - With the uncertain status of Mike Goodson, McKnight seemed like a lock to make the team.  Tonight the Jets coaching staff gained confidence in several possible McKnight replacements, both on special teams and in the backfield.

Biggest loser: Anyone responsible for letting Blaine Gabbert go 13/16, 165 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT, for a 130.5 QB rating. That's horrifying.

When Sanchez throws interceptions at the goal line, "Those things happen." When he wastes six seconds and the Jets don't even get to ATTEMPT a FG late in the half, Rex says it's on him. Get the impression Rex kinda LOVES him some Sanchez? Please. If Geno Smith did that "He's brutal. The worst." Get ready for unemployment Rex, you can't butt heads with the GM and win. On the subject of Simms I say dump McElroy and keep Simms. We've seen what McElroy brings and it simply isn't enough. He has Pennington-like skills, but Penny never really won much either. Gotta keep the more TALENTED player.

Rex's defense is going to be a huge let down. The reason is HIS involvement. He LOVES underachievers and the entire d is ling up for that role.

Sanchez wasn't a loser on the day.  I am not saying he played well but he didn't lose the job.  He was kind of neutral all things considered.  That is mostly because the bar is set so low with him.

I am back after a long absence.

 

I must disagree Max. When he has a chance to lock up the starter's job (as much as that makes me want to throw up)  and he performs like that, he's a loser.

 

I fear another long year for us Jet fans

Yeah I think I was taking it a little more literally.  But when you put it that way, I can't argue with the logic.  I was looking at it like he didn't lose the job last night.  But saying he didn't win it either makes sense.

 

Welcome back.

He was a HUGE loser. Now it doesn't make him lose the job but he didn't do anything to convince us he's over the crucial mistake. He also took drops way Too deep for a WCO. Lastly, as soon as the first option was covered he looked lost.

This is Sanchez we are talking about.  He could have been a huge loser on the day with two or three picks.  Again this is a low bar but he didn't knock himself out of the race.

He didn't because the other guy is hurt. He could have ENDED the race by going 13-23 but not making 2 stupid mistakes. It's the mistakes that kill him and he didn't show he is over them. If Matt hassel beck or someone like that were here, mark would be 2nd or 3rd string

You ok?

What part of what I said didn't you understand? Rex brought BARF Scott over from Baltimore to be our Ray Lewis, and he wasn't even worth Ray's jockstrap, yet Rex touted him as a team leader. A team leader in open mouff insert foot (in Michelle's mouff) but was not a leader in tackling that's for sure. Rex sure does LOVE him some underachievers.

Rex's defenses have played pretty well since he has been here.

Sanchez definitely panics and lacks any poise.  They ought to have a drill where he counts one thousand one, one thousand two, and if he hasn't thrown the ball by then to a receiver, then he turns and throws it out of bounds.  That should help him with his fear of getting hit or sense of panic. Any slow developing plays or long routes should be taken out of the playbook as long as Sanchez is QB.  Either that or they need to start giving him beta blockers or qualudes or something.

They did almost exactly this.  Don't you remember the drill with the horn sounding off?  Pretty sure it was Schottenheimer.  Roundly criticized as infantile, but exactly this idea.  Evidently it didn't work.

Thanks.  I didn't know that.  I never heard that about Schotty's drill.  Sanchez is obviously beyond hope in that regard.

First article I could find.  Apparently they were still trying it last year.  I think they had done it earlier, but they were blaming Rex and saying he got it from McCarthy.  Strange thing is that the same article said he did it in 2011 and they said it was from Parcells playbook.  Not sure why he would be copying McCarthy in 2012, when he'd done it the year before. Of course it's Mehta, so...

That makes it apparent that Sanchez is even worse and more stupid than I thought.  Even Pavlov's dog  could be trained with a light (or was it a bell?).
