    • Game Observations (NYG)
      General Notes

      - An absolutely putrid effort by the Jets with the main culprits being
      the defense and special teams

      - A horrible display of discipline as the team committed 10+ penalties.
      On offense most of them pinned the team back and destroyed drives.  On
      defense the penalties extended drives and led to NYG points

      Special Teams

      - Good efforts by Lachlan Edwards (P) and Jason Myers (K) as they were
      the only two players who didn't screw up all night

      - Other than that there were mistakes in punt coverage, PAT and ball
      security on kick off returns.  Inexcusable error by Charone Peake? as he
      left his lane as a gunner which left the whole side of the field empty on
      the TD return.  Poor discipline by Jonotthan Harrison on the PAT as he moved
      early which led to Taylor Bertolet missing from 38.  Trenton Cannon must
      show better ball security, that's two muffed punts and a fumble on specials
      in only two games.  In addition there were at least two other penalties
      on kick off returns which took the offense out of good field position and
      pinned them inside the 20.  A lot of players put themselves on the chopping
      block with how they performed


      - Yes, the defense hasn't given up a TD in the pre-season but they have
      been softer than cotton.  They aren't getting off the field on 3rd downs, the
      offense is gaining too much in field position and controlling the clock.  If
      the defense does stop them our offense is pinned back which causes them to be
      conservative to protect a young QB

      - The secondary gave up too many long receptions which flipped the field.  Some
      of the culprits were Mo Claiborne, Juston Burris and Buster Skrine.  Jamal Adams
      was one of the few players who had a strong game as he had a couple of TFL's

      - The ILB's were good in run support and Avery Williamson had an absolute textbook
      strip to cause a fumble.  The OLB's had no impact and Jordan Jenkins had a killer
      penalty on 3rd down which extended ...

    • Welcome to the next edition of the Sam Darnold breakdown.  This week, we will look at some mechanics, as well a breakdown from Pre-Season Game Two.

      I just want you to look at that drop back, that’s all.

      That is Tom Brady from the Super Bowl last year.   Yes, it hurts to watch them play in that game, but on the bright side, they lost.
      The main thing I’m highlighting here is the hop at the end, because it allows for Brady to be better prepared to throw, and you will see this often with him.  It helps him stay consistent with his delivery, if given space, rather than turning his head, and then allowing the body to readjust.  Brady loves to do the small hop to get himself in position to throw with better force, without waiting for his legs to get under him.  Don’t believe me? Let’s go see some more examples:

      Notice the hop each time he’s turning his head, so when Brady turns and sees an opening, there isn’t a lag.

      Here we see more hops, as Brady goes through the progressions.  You don’t see him flat footed because that creates a lag to generate torque.  Brady makes each of those hops knowing that if a throwing lane opens, he’s ready to throw.
      I don’t want to create this impression that Brady does this on every play, because he doesn’t.  There are plays where he doesn’t have time to hop around, so these are just the ones where there is space to operate in the pocket.  Furthermore, this quality isn’t limited to Tom Brady, as almost every good QB has the ability to hop around.  I pointed this hop mechanism out to ease concerns that Darnold isn’t fundamentally sound with his feet.  Darnold does tend to throw passes with open hips, but he’s been fairly accurate in his career.
      The second aspect ...

    • Brother, Jets fans were talking about that 3 games in 10 days the moment the schedule came out. The wasnt a soul on this board that mentioned the highlighted. So in no way was that a part which I left out.  Jets fans were complaining about hose 3 games in 10 days up until and after that Browns game. The moment the Browns game finished and I heard this narrative again... it dawned on me that the Browns had to also have a similar schedule in terms of games played in a certain amount of tim since it is the Browns we're playing. In otherwords, it wasnt some grand disadvantage the Browns somehow had. Now the goalpost is being move and the narrative is being changed to it now being about 3 games in 10 days, but now about the winning percentage of the home team. C'mon There are 2 teams every year since Thursday night football became a thing that had to play 3 games in 10 or 11 days. Every year since 2006 there was a home team and a away team. Teams have been dealing with this schedule for over a decade. Lets not act like the NFL stacked up everything in order for the Browns to get their first win and as a byproduct stick it to the Jets, the Jets had a 14 point lead right before half time. Goes to show how stacking made no difference.  What happened was the Jets didnt play 60 minutes of football because they were too busy wiping their behind and throwing footballs into the crowd and chopping it up on the sideline and not taking their opponent serious once they established that lead.    But to be fair. If you can show me wont post "from anyone on this forum" that complained about the above bolded, I will immediately take back what I said and will immediately agree with your point of view, but to be honest, what you typed sounds like you read my post and then studied. This sounds like this is information you put together just a few hours ago and was never a thought in your mind before then. 
    • Preseason expectations mean nothing...........but they underachieved.......based on.............DUH, nothing.  Yeah, stupid to use expectations to decided whether they overachieve or underachieved.  LOL, you cant make this up.
