The fake outrage over the loss today is beyond laughable.  We are 4 games
away from:

- Having the ability to draft the "next big thing" at QB
- Basically having three first round picks (#1, #25, #33)
- Having five premium picks in the first 3 rounds.  And with a tradeable
asset in Darnold potentially adding a sixth one
- Having the most cap space in a year when the cap is going down

Stop the fake crying you're embarrassing yourself

A few thoughts I was going to post somewhere, so here is as good a spot as any. Some of this just echos what others likely have said, but I didn't read the game thread today.

1.  Ty Johnson was spectacular.  He should absolutely be retained this off-season.  He can flat out fly.  Jets are building an offense around speed. 

2.  Pat Elflein was good again today I thought, 2 weeks in a row.

3.  This will sound a bit ridiculous considering the final play, but I actually think the 2 young corners have played pretty well the last few weeks.  Hall much better than Jackson, but I have thought Jackson has been ok.  Wouldn't be counting on him as a future starter, but as an undrafted rookie, I think he has a chance to stick around for awhile.

  This is what stood out to me. Chunk yardage rushing plays behind the left side. Whoever is our QB next season we need to take the pressure off him using the run game and setting up the PA

”But the very encouraging aspect from this game was the
chemistry between Becton and Pat Elflein.  Other than the two sacks
their communication in pass blocking was solid.  But they were
absolutely dominant in the run game cleaning out the left side of LV
DLine all game.  Elflein showed excellent mobility getting to the
second level, was strong at the point of attack in pass blocking.  And
showed a "Becton type of nastiness" in the run game pushing players 3-4
yards down the field and driving them into the ground.  I doubt we see
Alex Lewis again this season, Elflein needs to stay at LG because if
he continues this level of play that's one less OLinemen we need in the
offseason”

You've got to be kidding me, that was way too close for comfort!!!  
Thank goodness Henry Ruggs finally woke up and played like a #1
pick and bailed LV and the Jets out.  LV remains in the playoff
race and the Jets stay in the lead for Trevor Lawrence.  I know
it must sting for the players but I'm sorry one win doesn't help
this team going forward we need the #1 pick, period:

- For the first time all year you saw a rookie game from Mekhi Becton.
After shutting out the likes of Nick & Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingram and
Chris Jones he actually struggled with Clelin Ferrell and gave up two
strip sacks.  But the very encouraging aspect from this game was the
chemistry between Becton and Pat Elflein.  Other than the two sacks
their communication in pass blocking was solid.  But they were
absolutely dominant in the run game cleaning out the left side of LV
DLine all game.  Elflein showed excellent mobility getting to the
second level, was strong at the point of attack in pass blocking.  And
showed a "Becton type of nastiness" in the run game pushing players 3-4
yards down the field and driving them into the ground.  I doubt we see
Alex Lewis again this season, Elflein needs to stay at LG because if
he continues this level of play that's one less OLinemen we need in the
offseason

- Tremendous production on the ground (34 rush / 206 yds / 2 TD) thanks
to the OLine, particularly Becton and Elflein.  The scheme remained
unimaginative but the dominance of the line overcame the boring calls

- Good games from Ty Johnson (22 rush / 104 yds / TD) and Josh Adams
(8 rush / 74 yds) which shows "no name RB's" can be highly productive
if an OLine is good.  Johnson though is going to have a hard time
remaining in the league if he doesn't do a better job picking up the
blitz.  His awareness is awful right now

- Whoever the next HC and OC are they must have the mindset I saw from
LV today in their pass game.  They had a huge mismatch in Darren Waller
and they force fed him all day (17 targets).  And he destroyed the Jets
with 13 rec / 200 yds / 2 TD, a mismatch must be exploited and we never
see that from the Jets

- To enforce the above point Denzel Mims had 2 rec / 40 yds but only 3
targets for the entire game.  And Breshad Perriman had 1 rec / 22 yds
but only 4 targets for the entire game.  That's beyond ridiculous, that
type of size and speed has to challenge the defense all game.  Adam Gase
scheme seems to focus on sticking to plays and progressions and not
attacking mismatches

- Sam Darnold was better than last week but he wasn't good (14/23, 186
yds, 2 TD, INT, 2 fumbles).  In 4 games his Jet career will be over and
you hope Joe Douglas can get a #3 for him maybe a #2

- Another quality game from Quinnen Williams as he continues to show that
he'll be a defensive building block going forward (4 Tkls, Sack, TFL, 3
QB Hits)   

- I'm thankful that Henry Ruggs came up with the TD but I have to say he
wasn't impressive.  Its great to have speed but if you can't hang onto
the ball who cares.  His ball security has a long way to go

Blasphemy. A bannable offense for making such a comparison. @The Crusher make it so!

True. It’s just those long long long long stat posts are reminiscent of DWC and trigger PTSD symptoms. 

Oh that is quite understandable... but let me tell you about Jamal Adams’ high school trophies brah.

Sam just doesn’t seem comfortable throwing a to the outside. He loves crossers, loves the slot guys.  I wish Sam was our guy. But at this point anything other than Trevor and I’ll be crushed.

the Jets literally have the Strongest strength of schedule in the entire NFL this year. They have to lose out. The Jaguars will have a chance against the Bears in a couple of weeks – but that’s it.

Seahawks, Rams, Browns, Pats 

this should happen but after today we should feel lucky and can’t buy those “New Jerseys” yet (haha get it?). We should be called the New Jerseys Jets because we have to buy a new one every year 🤣

All I have to say about Becton having a less than ideal game? 

It's about time.

Becton has been money all season. I can very easily laugh the Raiders game away. He's one of our staple players for the next decade barring injury.

This would have never happened if Frank Gore didn't get knocked out of the game. 

Adam Gase continually force fed Frank Gore and acted like he was the only RB on the roster. 

Gore had his best outing of the year last week with 74 yards on 18 carries.

Adams matched that yardage this week ... on 8 carries.

But, you know, Gore is a role model, and has been in the league so long, and practices well, so he'll be back ASAP. :rolleyes:
