Game Observations (DET)

Recommended Posts

I agree 100% about the Nickerson interception in the end zone. What better time to challenge than on a very close play with DET in FG range.

How about Bowles look throughout the game? Not sure if it's the first time kids see disneyworld look but I imagine hes dreaming about becoming the next Bill Belichick right now.

Awesome start to the season!

I thought the same at the time, but looked down at the bottom of the screen and I dont believe the Jets had any timeouts in which to challenge.

I do think Nickerson was in though. He looked great in his limited snaps. I think he'll end up being a starter before the end of the season. Skrine will probably do Skrine-things and will end up losing his job to Nickerson. 

Team looked great today. I know that pick 6 had Giants fans laughing thinking they dodged a bullet. Instead Darnold looked like one of the better QB's of week 1 and is automatic on 3rd down conversions. 

Im impressed. I didnt expect this from him...and not that quickly at that. If he can keep this up and the rest of the team doea their job, the Jets will compete for this division.

He needs to cut out that taunting bull sh*t.

Nickerson play needed to be a booth review. Inside 2 minutes. 

Right.   And we had no timeouts left to try to “ encourage” a review.  I thought that was am incredible play by Nickerson and we got screwed out of our 6th! interception

i also thought his penalty for taunting was a sh*t call and nothing that doesn’t happen 30 times a game.

It seems like Bowles might be figuring out this head coaching thing, be the general and leave the play calling to the coordinators.

The less Bowles is doing the better

Still very concerned about the O line. Never thought they were terrible, but against a top DL, Sam will run for his life.

I want to see more Nickerson

That taunting call should barely be called, especially not after that play last night. This is football!

It wasn’t even taunting Nickerson and the player he tackled were physically tangled after the tackle

 

These refs were trying to help the lions since the game was still close at that point.  Vegas baby Vegas

That Nickerson taunting would never have been called if he was a star veteran & not a rookie. Go take a look at Gronks 1st TD Sunday vs the Texans. Gronk catches the ball turns to the 2 defenders, literally points at them with his finger, shakes his head up & down while laughing. 

NFL needs to step in & keep these f*cking refs from ruining the game! Stars are CONSTANTLY taunting.

All these refs are crooked especially now that sports betting is legal in other states now it’s going to get worse.  The refs were giving the lions gifts early in the game last night trying to help with the point spread 

 

Nickerson was absolutely robbed on that pick in addition to the phantom taunting call

The Darnold pick was 100% on the Oline & Darnold. I'm not going to fault Bates for having confidence in the kid & being aggressive. As soon as Darnold gets the snap, a Lion defender has quick pressure slighting to his left which forces Sam to move to his right & climb back up while still moving to his right. Sam then panics & throws the ball across his body which is taught to QBs as a no no since QB play has been coached. 

The 1st thing I thought was well he got that mistake out of the way, lol. So funny that Brett Favre also had a pick 6 on his 1st NFL throw. Good omen? 

You'll probably never see Sam do that again & if you do, the guy is wide open!

I think the biggest challenge facing Bates and Darnold going into the Miami game will be the need to push the ball downfield a little more.  Now that there is some tape on Darnold, I think Miami has to take away the underneath stuff and make Darnold look outside and downfield.

  • It’s good that Luvu was finally put on the 53, because it appeared he played a lot and was impactful.  So was the other new EDGE guy whose name I can’t spell.
  • Lee was looking like Lee in the first half, and I saw him bounce off a couple of tackles.  But the Jets appeared to get how to play him-in space-and then he played obviously great-like how he was drafted to play.  If he can keep that up he will make himself a lot of money.
  • I like how Anderson was used, other than that sweep that we hopefully never see again.  
  • Can we extend Enunwa please?  If Mac waits until off season he will get burned.
  • Adams was used like he was supposed to-he was in the box, and in the back.  Made plays in both.   He played like he was drafted to play.  
  • I saw many plays with at least 2 TEs on the field, which is why the Jets kept 4 of them.
  • Who gets cut to put Ardarious Stewart on the 53?  I say cut him and Practice Squad.  
  • I like the outside running.  I thought I was watching USC from the 1970s.  
  • The Dolphins are beatable.  Need to notch that win.  
  • Other than the first play, I don’t think you watch the game and see a rookie QB.

The play is designed to go across the field. The narrative that’s is a no no is BS- ive seen it many times, it was a designed play- Darnold should have thrown it over the defender or gone to his second option but he said he was too excited to hit the play.

It's pretty obvious to see that it was a designed roll out to the right with a designed throw back. They were trying to catch the Lions off guard and we're hoping they would over commit to the right and they didn't. It was a great play by their defense.

Im not nitpicking at all, but with respect to throwing down the field - on the Robby TD, he was wide open, and had Darnold thrown that to the back pylon it was a cake walk.  I dont think its an arm strength thing, but that ball needs to be thrown for Robby to run and get it, and not give the DB a chance

Agree on it being a step under thrown...but imagine how we'd be talking right now if he went back pylon & it was a touch overthrown

Robinson or Leggett will get cut loose. We have 3 UFA Wide receivers. One of them we will let walk.

He hit Robby in stride though, you can’t throw that to the back pylon on that route though.  He still threw the ball effortlessly 50 yards in the air.  He will need to show that more IMO, as teams are going to force him to look there.  Up to Robby and Pryor to get open for him.

I knew it was going to be a fun night when the announcing crew tried to prop up Patricia by showing Belicheck's coaching tree. That was absolutely adorable.

The Fans gathering behind the bench to rock the chant, gave me goosebumps. I love that Darold acknowledged them. 

All the stuff in between those two things, was pretty great too.

Maybe, it's not designed to take 6 freaking seconds!

If we can run the football half way decently, it's a very hard team to defend with a good QB. A lot of receivers with different skill sets. Two running backs who can catch the football. Hell ,no Kearse ,and Tight ends that weren't a big part last night in the passing game.
