    The thing that still confounds me is that we still had 2 TO's left before we ran the play. Saleh said that the ball was going to go to Berrios, period. If there was any confusion on anyone's part, call another TO and get everyone on the same page. Remove all doubt.

    Except that calling consecutive TOs is a 5 yard delay penalty.

  2. As for the D costing the game, it was actually one bad play (well, actually two).  Just like the decision by the QB to sneak.  Goes to show how just a couple of breakdowns can blow things up and how hard it is to win consistently in the NFL.  That last pass from Brady was on 3 rd down from his own side of the 50 with 20 seconds left.  Up til that blown coverage, this patched together D has performed admirably.  The other play that cost them was the 3rd and 20 in the 4th they allowed Brady to convert.  Overall, I enjoyed the game and the advances the team and the QB made to make it so.  If they don’t lock up Berrios immediately it’ll prove that the GM and front office have a huge blind spot.  The guy can play.

    Yes.  Rest was pointless.

    Not really.  You could give Wilson a pass for being a rookie.  But Berrios was on fire all game and even I on my couch could tell the Bucs D was keying on a QB sneak.  The #2 pick called his own number anyway.  Whether ego or ignorance, it was an obvious wrong call from the start.  I compare it to a baseball manager neglecting to order his hitter to take the 3-0 pitch.

  4. To clarify, it is on the coaching staff.  They used a play that’s usually used in 4th and 1 situations only.  There’s a QB option on that play — a sneak and a hand off.  The coaches meant to take the option off — in essence, to modify the playbook there — and use the handoff only.  Saleh is saying they “failed to communicate” that the sneak was not an option there.  That’s obviously true.  Wilson let his ego get in the way, IMO.  Even if he never understood what the coaches intended, he made a selfish and brain dead decision.  A spindly QB can’t get 2 yds period let alone against a top D like TBs.

    Really? He ran for his only TD, had a whole 102 yards passing, and could have easily had 2 passes intercepted one of which he banged off a defensive guys helmet which was a horrible throw. All of this against a horrible Jags team that's just a little better at losing than the Jets. I saw nothing that made me think he has made any significant progress. Lets see how he looks against real teams the next 2 weeks. 

    A lot of coulda, woulda, shoulda there.  So a QB has to have passing, not rushing TDs to not be a bust?  I thought the idea is to just win games?  You take what the D gives you unless and until they take it away.  They never did.

    Jets can't win when you want them to and when it's blatantly obvious the season is blown to smithereens we decided to win. Happy for the guys playing on the Jets, but a decent amount of guys on this team aren't even worthy of being here or on any team for that matter.  For the Jets future, this win was a sub-optimal outcome that no one will reference or care about, but reverberate for years to come.

    I think this is called “over-analysis”.

    14-22 for 102 yards 1 TD 0 INTs.  Major improvement!!!!


    I don’t understand your point.  You take what their D gives you.  They let you run, you run until they take that away.  They never did.  Look at it this way.  Zack forced nothing, avoided mistakes and took what was given.  That’s called game management and it’s job 1 for any QB.
