I don't know about you but I watched this game in a high state of annoyance.  Thinking about how we haven't beaten this team in THREE YEARS and by laying two eggs in 2015 it not only cost us the p

I have a complaint.  We've gotta wait 10 f*ing days before we can watch our kick a$$ Jets wup KC.  

Will just add that on the poor kickoff coverage play ... Lee was badly held & it looked like his gap the KR hit the coverage team is night & day compared to last year

Good write up. Small points from a pencil pusher,

We looked like a real team.  GREAT adjustments second half.

D-Line collapses in and over runs Taylor and a quick QB like Taylor had too many opportunities to run.  Not enough sacks but all in all good job D-Line.

 

OLINE looking pretty good for a patchwork of guys

Secondary still suspect

Bowles did a better job

Im wearing my JETS shirt to the gym this morning.

 

PHUCK REX!

A division win on the road with a short turnaround against a team that has had our number! It doesn't get any better than that.  I think this shows the makeup of this team and this coaching staff.

Fitz had some life in his arm last night. Because of the good protection he was able to step into his throws and deliver darts on some throws when needed.

Nice game plan by Chan starting out. Buffalo stacked the box and that deep ball to Enunwa opened things up in the middle

Decker was fired up last night and really stepped up

BM had a good game but those untimely drops are a killer! 2-0 if he makes that catch last week in the 4th

Forte is a work horse. Only saw Powell a few times last night.

Kellen Davis continues to S-U-C-K although getting that fumble was huge

Entire secondary did a good job last night against major speed on the outside. Revis miscalculated Goodwin speed and route and Salas was a broken play

Everyone thinks Goodwins a scrub but he's a world class runner and even a clocks right 2x/day. Revis has to do better.

OL has really impressed me.... Breno's going to have a tough time getting the starts over Ijilana.

Winters much improved and Wesley Johnson did a nice job filling in for Carpenter. Hope his injury is minor

WE left some points on the field offensively and the "D" killed my Fantasy matchup last night but was solid.

Richardson needs to shut up and play. Catapano popped on a few plays and Lee definitely showed his speed running down McCoy 

Rex like a little baby when shaking TB hand.... didn't even look at him...LOL

Saw the same thing and was screaming at the TV. Opened up a huge hole.

Forte is a great buy. Ok, he's got mileage on him but he's just experienced and calm and consistent plus a dual threat. He's not going to sh*t the bed under pressure.

great game by Forte but they need to get Powell more involved.  Forte can't have 30 carries.

if the defense can stop giving up the big plays, with this offense and its weapons, they can be very good.

and of course great write up as usual KRL

A couple of other things:

- Nice win to jumpstart the season but let's stop all the redemption nonsense.  We failed
when the playoffs were on the line last year

- After BUF scored those 17 straight points good resiliency by the team to fight back and
score 17 straight of our own

- Good to see Ryan still up to his old tricks:
  * Risking a challenge to gain 4 yards
  * A too many men on the field penalty
  * Trying to draw the Jets offside on 4th & 1, using a timeout, then going for it
    and not getting it.  Classic
  * His defense still can't control the middle of the field, Enunwa killed him

- Taylor is a "max protection, broken play QB" other than those two situations he
can't make a play.  If they keep 7-8 men in to block he can throw a nice deep ball.
And if you rush him without maintaining your lane he'll get out and hurt you.  His
stats were total "fantasy fluff"

In Rex we trust... it was good to see the old Rex out there... and his brother ROb, wow.. sorry Buff fans (well not really ;))

 

That 3rd & 4th and '1' stands were the key to the game, awesome job by Sheldon there.. he was a difference maker fromlast week to this week.

 

Enunwa was absolutely incredible.. what a weapon, hope he can hold up, he plays very physical.

 

J Marshall, bad fumble, but everywhere else, he looked great, makes up for the D Smith pick.

 

I thought D Lee had a good game and made some key tackles down the stretch.

 

Revis is still a great leader, and his tackling is still pretty solid, but he is now just a guy corner, which is fine, but Bowles needs to react to that now, we need soome cover 2 going on back there.

 

Fitz started so shaky, but finished the last 3 quarters like a real pro, great freakin game.

 

Glad Folk looked good, really don't want to start shopping for a kicker.

 

Marshall is an absolute beast, and Decker against the other teams #2's is money, 6 straight games with a TD, wow.

 

I like the chances vs. KC, Run D is out bets thing and they do that well.  A Smith doesn't challenge as much vertically, so we got a shot.

Big plays given up is an issue that needs to be corrected. Jets found themselves down in the third quarter despite dominating TOP. Tyrod Taylor thru for nearly 300 yards and 3 TDs. Credit the Jets for not panicking, and bouncing back strong. Defense has to play better. They need to do some tinkering in that secondary. 

I was also impressed with Jalen Marshall after that killer fumble. Brushed it off and played like he belonged out there. I thought Robby Anderson beat him out in the preseason, but he was balling out there.

Gotta give some credit to the coaching staff, I don't want to get too high after a win but we have young players who seem to finally be getting coached up and are getting better.  Obviously Enunwa looks like a completely different player but even some of these guys on the O-Line coming in and making an impact.  Ijalana looks no worse than Breno and with his age hopefully has a higher ceiling, Wesley Johnson came in and did a nice job after the the Carpenter injury, an undrafted free agent like Jalin Marshall coming in and making some big catches (the fumble could've been a killer though).  The vets like Brandon, Decker, Fitz and Mangold played great and are going to dictate our success this season but you can see there's a future and we're building towards a sustainable winning organization

One of the worst films I've ever seen is Ben Affleck's Daredevil.

 

If Ben Affleck's Daredevil was the movie I was watching when I found out that Rex Ryan was fired, Ben Affleck's Daredevil would have been the greatest cinematic masterpiece I've ever seen.

 

Last night, the Jets played a perfect football game.

Yes that 5 yard penalty made it 3rd and 1 and I was glad. I knew Rex would try to power through old school, behind a FB. If it was 3rd and 6 the odds go way down that we stop them. I believe we stopped them on another 3rd and fourth and short as well if not for a bad spot.

I think the smart defense on Tyrod is to keep 2 safeties deep, clog the middle and dare him to throw outside the numbers from the pocket. I hope we learn that by the next meeting. He may not be the starter by that point. He and Roman have been figured out. Basically he is Kaepernick.

I know it's early, but I don't remember a Jets team in my lifetime that had better depth at wide receiver. After sitting through basically 15 years when the organization basically ignored the position through the draft, you have Enunwa looking like an early season candidate for one of the most improved players in the league. Jalin Marshall came up with some big plays after his fumble. That showed a lot of mental toughness on his part. 

Enunwa and Brian Winters have both been good to very good through the first two games. Some players just take longer than others to develop, but it's nice to see those draft investments starting to pay off. 

Daron Lee is also off to a nice start to his career. He has flashed through his first 2 games and, with the injury to Henderson, Lee looks poised to enter the starting lineup. 

Just like the Jets team in general, Lee is showing that he has the superior skillset. Better to be talented and improving than steady.

Flashes of greatness is what you want from a young player, and a young team. Young team in terms of this Mac/Bowles/Gailey regime. Future looks bright.

The polar opposite of the way I felt when we were winning safe with Herm.

Look like many fans I truly hate the prevent defense. But last night they gave up mostly big plays to Buff and I can understand Bowles going conservative on that last series. But I didn't like it because it leads to a fairly quick TD when for the most part they were not moving the ball that well all night. So I'm not going to kill him about it but it basically gave the Bills a chance to win the game. If that onside kick had been successful and I've seen over the years plenty of them work against the Jets it could have ended in an L esp since Bowles went for one not two on that last TD.

Lots of positive things to point and agree with most here.

The thing that impressed me most however what the mental toughness this team showed. I'm sure the fans feeling more frustration early than the team was, as they continually bounced back after the mistakes.

I know I'm going to get killed for this because Fitz put up gaudy numbers, but I'm still so frustrated with him. Even the big throws he makes are off the mark just enough to make it really difficult for our receivers to get them. Behind them almost every time, never in stride. One of those guys is going to get killed out there and we're missing out on even more big plays. It sounds like nitpicking, but its more than that. I'll obviously take the win, but I'm uneasy about it going forward.
