Midget Observations

Recommended Posts

Catapano got hurt and needed XRays. That's too bad for him. 

I liked most of what I saw from Lattimore. 

Special teams is being impacted by injuries and terrible drafts from the previous regimes. You get solid STs guys from late rounds in the draft and the Jets have nothing to show for those the last few years. 

One thing that is starting to worry me is that the Jets have a Buster Skrine problem. Week in and week out he is being abused in the slot. He just released Beckham on the long touchdown and that's where Beckham did most of his damage. If Revis and Williams are both back next Sunday, I'd like to see Marcus in the slot. It might even be time for McDougle there. Skrine got a bunch of money and he isn't earning it. Time for him to get the Demario Davis treatment.

Thoughts

- Nice not to be "teased" for once by this team.  They showed fight
and completed the comeback with the win.  Very impressive to be down
10 with six minutes left and to come all the way back

- When was the last time we had three almost 100 yard receivers in one
game (Marshall, Decker & Powell)

- Typical Midget game, great "stats" and highlights produced by Beckham
and they lose

- What a dumb decision by Coughlin not to kick the FG and go up by two
TD's with eight minutes left.  You've got to have a "feel" for the game
and the Midgets were in control.  ANY points there probably ends the 
game

- And where was Vereen???  Thank you to their staff for not using him


Good

- Powell probably had his most impactful game as a pro.  Was a beast
catching screens and exploding for yardage

- Fitzpatrick was fantastic and for the first time ever I can say he
actually lifted his team to a win

- Marshall & Decker getting back to their early season production and
making EVERY play  

- Great halftime adjustments by Gailey to neutralize the pressure the
Midgets were bringing.  He started to use his "big slot" WR to seal the
edge before going out into a route

- The defense as a whole "bent but didn't break" in the second half
and overtime and threw a shutout

- Offense really kicked it into gear on their last three drives to tie
and then win the game

- Bullock has not been noticed since taking over for Folk.  And that's the
best compliment

- Miles had good production when he replaced Pryor with a TFL & INT

- Williams was strong all day and had his first "full" sack

- Catapano being relentless in his reps and getting his first sack

- Cromartie had a good day shutting down Randle

- Props to Bowles for benching Wilkerson and holding him accountable


Bad

- The specials nearly killed us AGAIN.  Either April has to be replaced
at the end of the year or the back of the roster has to be re-stocked.
They gave up the punt return TD to Harris and almost gave up the game
losing kick return TD to Harris in OT

- Shame on Wilkerson for missing a meeting.  You're supposed to be a 
leader not Geno Smith

- OLine pass protection in the first half

- Coverage bust on Beckham's TD

- Coverage busts on Tye, he's not Gronkowski for crying out loud

- Colon' stupid unsportsmanlike penalty when he's not in uniform

- Ivory fumbling AGAIN which is happening way too often

- Going offsides on the Midgets punt which gave them a first down

Great analysis as usual. 

As for Wilk, i can't wait until he is gone. He is VERY good, but not nearly worth the money he is asking (or will get) and we already have Richardson/Williams to lead the d-line. We cannot afford to give Wilk "Playmaker" money when he rarely makes big plays in big spots.

Replace Bobby April...not the end of the year.   Now!!!!!!!

  1. Coughlin was Jets MVP, Reece should have fired him after the game

The narrative tomorrow is going to be about coughlin and how the Giants "gave" the game to the Jets. The media will ignore the fact that the Jets had statistically dominated pretty much the entire game, and had therefore "gave" the Giants the game that they gave back to us. Just like the Giants - Cowboys game earlier this year -- I was hearing for months about how the Giants "should" have won that game, but nothing about how they were totally lucky to be in position to win it due to boneheaded Cowboys play calling. The Jets earned this game -- Coughlin's idiocy only made up for the idiocy of the Jets letting Beckham run free for a 70 yard touchdown, and lame specials.

The special teams personnel issue is an easy fix, you do what Seattle does on important special teams plays, you put in Pryor, Gilchrist, Skrine, D Davis (insert starting impact player here that you think would make plays on specials), ect. to get down there, and make the plays.

That's risky given that those plays are much more susceptible to injuries. Losing a player like Pryor to injury on a pubt return would be disaster.

That's fine, I'm going to enjoy listening to all of their fans crying and their media apologists excusing their

crappy play.  We continue our playoff chase, ended their season and probably got their GM & HC fired

Well, to be honest, they're still right in the hunt for their terrible division. We needed this game more than they did.

Yeah, but when you watch Seattle in OT kicking off, or late in the 4th up a score punting, and E Thomas, Cam Chancellor, and B Wagner are celebrating like wild dogs because they just crushed the returner in a big spot getting their sideline pumped up while taking the wind out the other teams sails then yes it is worth it.

Pierre-Paul was hitting our OLinemen in the head with his "club" all day.  Why wasn't

he penalized for it???  The "head slap" was outlawed years ago and the refs are 

ALWAYS calling the illegal hands to the face penalty whenever they have the chance.

Why wasn't he flagged, he must have done it at least 5 times

When was the last time a Jets QB threw for 390 in a game.  Great job by Fitz

 

Vinny Testaverde, apparently. 481 yards against the Ravens in 2000. 

December 28, 2014 @ Miami. Geno Smith.

 

EDIT: Nvm. On closer inspection, 38 of those yards where Quigley's. Geno only had 358. lol.

Yes, K O Brien is right. It's Vinny.

EDIT 2: Woops. Quoted the wrong person.
