Is It Time To Stick A Fork In This Season?

NFL: Miami Dolphins at New York Jets

Another week and another Jets loss, it’s a trend that’s becoming all too familiar. As usual there were some bright spots from yesterday’s loss to the Broncos but the negatives continue to outweigh the positives. Our defensive front was strong and kept the pressure on Peyton Manning all day. Muhammad Wilkerson continues to impress and build on his Pro-Bowl numbers. Rookie Jace Amaro had his best game of the season so far with his first NFL touchdown and for the most part showed that he can continue developing into a key weapon on offense. The offense as a whole even got into the red zone in the first quarter which was an accomplishment and was hopefully something to build upon.

That’s where we stop with the accolades though. The offense didn’t continue to play well and after that first quarter touchdown it stalled until the very end of the game. The Jets had 82 yards on offense for the entire first half. What happened to the running game as well yesterday? The one thing the Jets needed to do yesterday was continue to run the ball effectively and they could not. That falls under the coordinators responsibility. The Jets have a weak offensive line that got weaker with the loss now of Brian Winters but there was no creativity to open up the running game and after a while it seems they abandoned it altogether.  Geno Smith showed flashes again of why he was drafted but too often forced the ball or made poor decisions. He has to run more. Time and time again there were lanes available for him to scramble for positive yardage but he stayed back and either forced a poor throw or went down for negative yardage. Case in point was the last drive to try and tie the game up. Did anyone seriously think he was going to take the team down the field with the game on the line to get the game tying touchdown? The result was an interception to ice the game for Denver.

On Special Teams, two fumbles by Powell with one turnover was a disgrace. The first thought that came to my mind, “I really miss Mike Westhoff”. On kick offs these players don’t seem ready and if they are then they need to either work harder or someone else needs to be found that can hold onto the ball! You can’t give team’s second chances on offense especially someone like Peyton Manning.

The defense had no turnovers again and the run defense was horrible for the second week in a row. For the second week in a row the defense let a backup running back get to the second level multiple times. The secondary and even the linebackers were not in sync yesterday as witnessed by the early 53 yard pass play by Denver and then just before the half Julius Thomas caught a touchdown due to poor communication between Calvin Pryor and David Harris. He could even be heard over the telecast proclaiming how “bleeping” easy it was. This is a short week for the Jets as they have to go to New England Thursday night. This team needs to find answers quickly or the calls for change will continue to get louder. Week after week of saying how we need to work harder or learn from mistakes is getting really old.

So the question needs to be asked, is it time to stick a fork in the 2014 season?

WE NEED A FREAKING QB, CBs, WRs....its clear that these are missing parts. Lets not talk about other positions till these are addressed. Milliner is Glass Joe...we need to find a backup plan to him. GENO is not a franchise QB. He is toast. 

 

Newsflash: We need everything except a defensive front. Let's start there ...

The fact that Powell kept going out there after two fumbles, when Rex had Kerley to catch punts, was nuts.  I know Powell had a few good runbacks, but he  was not made accountable.  He has been making dangerous decisions since they brought him here.  Communication problems are, I guess, commonplace, but the Jets seem to have them at really important times.  I would say you cannot expect much out of this season.  And the final nail in the coffin is the O line, which is terrible.

I say draft talent around the QB position and then draft a rookie to be brought up around elite players. That's the reason I didn't want Geno in 2013. And I still stick to my word DJ Hayden is a better corner then Milliner when he IS on the field. Not to mention he was snagged in the 2nd.

 

No he wasn't, he was drafted 12th overall.

Let's be honest. This was a tank year from the beginning. They barely beat Oakland. This team is not talented enough to win on Sundays. Anyone should have seen this coming by just looking at the roster. Decker is a nice player. He's not a fix all. Calvin Pryor could be a good player. He can't fix everything. Neither can Amaro or anyone else brought in. This team is terrible coaching on Sundays and terrible at drafting in April. It's a mess. And we all deserve better.

and the cherry on the top of it all Carl is THEY ALSO HAVE NO LUCK I mean you can sometimes overcome a bad play by a bad player if when the ball IS rolling around on the field somebody picks it up and runs it in, When was the last time we even saw THAT?
