once again the vaunted defense fails to make the needed stop in the 4th quarter

Recommended Posts

Tom Brady:  22/46, 228 yds, 0 TD's, 1 INT (2 fumbles, both recovered), 4 sacks.  Got the stop in overtime when needed.  And that on a day when he finally got his favorite target back in Gronk (who looked quite good and healthy when he wasn't getting locked down by Antonio Allen).

 

What the hell do you have to complain about today, exactly?

 

Why the hell hasn't Antonio Allen been playing the way he played today, or been on the field to show he can play that way?  That is my one complaint about today lol.

No one likes the prevent defense. Rex probably hates it more than you - but it worked. Oh well.

IT DIDNT WORK THOUGH! they tied the game dude!

Was thinking about this.  Unless you don't trust your defense at all, the new OT rules make me think getting the ball 2nd is the right idea.  Of course, you can't actually do that, because it gets you fired as a coach if they get the TD, but I'm not sure it isn't the right strategy.

 

Yeah, the new OT rules make the game a little bit more like the college OT system.  For once I think the NFL has gotten something right with recent rule changes.  Teams might well start taking the ball 2nd, or at least have to THINK about it.

We beat the division-leading Patriots in an overtime game that we never win, ever.

 

Things that are usually complained about by Jets fans on here:

 

Rex and his defense can't stop anyone on 3rd down? Pats went 1-12

Rex and his defense can't make adjustments at halftime? Defense looks completely different, allowing -6 yards for almost the 3rd quarter and allowing them to score 6 points all 2nd half.

Rex and his defense overload blitz too predictably on 3rd downs and end of games? We drop more into coverage than all year.

 

 

 

Obviously you want to see them not allow that field goal to send it to over time, but the defense had a pretty darn good game. Maybe it's because I don't expect them to be lights out or put them on a pedestal, but I'm able to give recognition when it's due and they deserve it today. I'm also not entirely sure of who really is calling this defense great, or if it's just a strawman used to tear down rex.

To be fair, when was the last time Tom Brady engineered a game winning drive in crunch time? :winking0001:

 

 

idc. i'm just sick of watching our defense give up the score. i am sitting here watching with my father-in-law and say......watch the pats will get the fg at least. and he says you think? and i say yeah i been watching the jets too long. and what happens? they give it up just like that and he says...wow you were right.

last week vs the Saints

why would i cry? i'm happy they won. i'm annoyed that the defense almost never seems to be bale to get the one big stop late in the game to seal the win

Nit picking at this point. That game should have been over with that pass to Hill and this isnt even a conversation.

Plus, you cant take out of the equation who you are playing. It was Brady. Whatd they say 39 career 4th quarter comebacks? Good enough to win today which is all that matters.

We won.  Largely on the back of a defense that nearly held the Pats to negative yardage in the 3rd quarter (and scored on a pick 6), then got the needed stop in OT.  This thread is absolutely pathetic.

 

 

a littel reading comprehension tutoring might help you out here. i'm not saying the defrense sucked. i'm saying i am tired of seeing this "great" defense give up the tying or winning score late in the 4th instead of sealing the damn win.

No, the Jets won the game. They prevented a game losing TD, and won in OT. It worked. Sorry.

Just holding Brady to a FG at the end of regulation was a victory, IMO. How many times have we seen Brady put up a touchdown in a 2 minute drill like that at the end of a game? It's practically a fait accompli against ANY team.

 

Also, you must have missed Brady's first possession in overtime. What did they give up then? 11 yards? LOL

 

no it wasnt a victory. it was a tie. and it was a failure by the defense

Can't please 'em all.  Or in the case of the Jets, you'll never please some.

Look around the league.  Teams tie or win on game-ending drives all the time.  We've won quite a few games ourselves on the last possession, and didn't do it with a Hall of Fame QB at our disposal.

Where do you draw the "it worked" line?

 

Cumberland's drop that could have helped run out the clock "worked" too, because they still won the game.

The stop in overtime doesn't count as a success?

It wasnt a stop, they scored.

Maybe your post would be taken a little more positively if you taken a little time to, you know, enjoy the game and made your point tomorrow.

Clearly its because Rex sucks.  I mean, why does it take a 7th round pick a whole 1.5 seasons to turn in a Pro Bowl-caliber performance?  I don't get it.

Brady usually wins these type games with a TD this week he was only able to get a tie with the field goal then we shut his ass down in OT not sure what you expect ...

Better than a f***ing TD.  Who cares?  Were you pissed we allowed that one first down in OT before forcing a punt?

 

If we'd blown it in OT and allowed the Pats to march down and kick a FG or end it on a TD I'd be right there with you about how we let it slip away.  But we didn't, so I'm happy.

C' mon your being goofy they held Brady to 0 TD's 1 pick, and a 53 passer rating.  The D won the game

But this thread isn't about failures on offense, clearly, because all that matters is Rex's D sucked like a couple times today against Tom Brady.

Thanks to that penalty, right? I am happy they won, but if it wasnt for that gift they lose. well almost certainly lose.
