Game Observations (DEN)

- Shocking to say but a poor game by Quincy Enunwa as he had multiple drops

Quincy Enunwa was held catch-less on five targets in the Jets' Week 5 win over the Broncos.

Announcers revealed during the game that Enunwa seemed to be dealing with a hand injury when they spoke to him in the lead-up to Sunday, and Enunwa indeed donned a brace of some sort on his hand against Denver. He dropped a quick screen, and a Sam Darnold would-be touchdown throw glanced off Enunwa's fingertips. Enunwa is shaping up as a risky WR3 option entering Week 6 versus the Colts.

Agree with KRL assessment, total team effort, very few mistakes today. What I learned today is when KC Rodgers gets well and comes back, he has to be re-designated or made the assistant DC because the defense looked totally different today. They really only gave up 1 TD and 1 FG, the first TD was a gift after a fumble on our 20. The D were all over the field today. Loved Leo's game, saw him standing a lot and got 2 sacks. I said that weeks ago we should stand him up, with his speed he should be able to get pressure.

Problem with Bowles teams has been 1 great effort followed by 3 stinkers for 4 years now.

GREAT QB coming in next week. Hoping today's effort can continue next week, Colts OL is worse than ours.

I have 1 observation. When they protect Sam, meaning give his 2 seconds or more, he looks really good for a rookie. Really good.

Imagine what he could do with the time Brady gets. Oooooh-weeeee!

Apathy until they feel they have to play to save jobs. Then they kick it on. Impress. Then back to apathy.

We usually get sacks on first or second down, only to let the other team convert a third and long, but getting them on third down today was CLUTCH.

Nickerson was getting picked on at first but then seemed to clean it up.

Good job KRL

The 2 4 5 look was what they did almost every passing down.I feel like they should be so exposed to the run with only two true down lineman in the game but the Jets did such a good job of shooting gaps. They were very disruptive.

Thought it was an excellent game plan all around.

We need NE refs for that

....in pass blocking they took Miller, Chubb and Ray out of the game

This was unexpected and a HUGE reason we won the game.

We all know the risk to the Jets offense.  Falling behind early to Denver and becoming "pass only" would have tee'd up Darnold for those pass rushing wolves.  It's truly amazing that we made those three guys largely irrelevant today.

With all the doubles that are being thrown at Leo and minimal edge talent, it was a smart move to negate some of those doubles.

I also think timing on offense is what we a starting to see Sam develop. This is so important for the success of a wc offense. Sam talked about it today in his presser. While his arm strength isn’t Stanford or mahomes level, it’s not the issue. It’s timing. He can put the balls through the windows. He’s been flinching weeks 2-4. Today was looser and more in rhythm.

I just can’t wait for next week. This may have been another perfect storm like the Detroit game and need to see better play consistently. It doesn’t have to be at today’s level because a lot of that was on Denver looking as flat as we normally do.

Next “test” is next week. Sam made me very happy today as his progress is most important. Everything else is pure gravy.

Sam played some real qb today.  We are 2-0 when darnold plays well and 0-3 when he plays bad.

If he can stay agressive downfield and put a few good games together, we could be in the thick of things come november.

I couldnt help myself, found myself cheering and clapping ,” Hercules, Hercules “ when he QB muscled for couple first downs too. He’s a kid, let him play and get dirty!

Calling fellow Jets fans trolls because you don’t agree with their perspective is very cool. 

It's true I'm cool and that I disagree with troll posts about drafting a QB next year

Thing I was glad to see about the deep balls was the receiver was getting hit in stride. Fitz and McCown could both hit Anderson deep, but he often had to slow up to catch the ball ... Sam was leading him perfectly yesterday which makes a big difference.
